Feeling that he might be too old to enjoy his grandchildren because his youngest daughter still has no plans of getting married, a Thai millionaire offered 10 million baht ($315,000) for the guy who would win his daughter’s heart. But he has since changed his mind after finding her choice ‘too handsome’! Aw.
Arnon Rodthong, 58, recently made waves on social media after making the offer. Aside from the cash reward, he had also thrown in jewelry, a house, ten vehicles, and his entire durian empire to whoever this winning suitor might be.
He’s not picky at all. According to Arnon’s post, he isn’t looking for someone rich, handsome, or with a college degree as long as he passes his three requirements:
“Doesn’t have to be that smart, he just has to be able to read and write (but please don’t bring your degrees to cluster the house).
Hardworking and not lazy.
Stingy about money and loves durian.”
When more than 10,000 guys ‘applied’ to become the husband of 26-year-old Karnsita Rodthong, the Thai millionaire was overwhelmed by so much social media interactions that he deleted the post and made a new announcement for interested suitors to ‘pack up all the necessities’ and be at the farm on April 1 to pass a 3-month test.
Of the many guys who applied to be Karnsita’s suitor, one stood out from the rest.
“I’m interested. I am 28 years old. My family also grows Durian in Trat province. We have over 300 trees… I can weather the sun and the rain. I can drive a 10-wheel truck and tractor. Please consider me, father Arnon. Thank you,” 28-year-old Premyosapon Khongsai commented.
Impressive qualifications, right? Premyosapon would soon emerge as the social media favorite – and everyone was rooting for him! Everyone loved his qualifications and his handsome looks.
Soon, Premyosapon would catch Karnsita’s attention and we can’t blame her for canceling her dad’s plans to start the competition on April 1. She has made a choice: Premyosapon.
Everyone loved her choice – except her dad, that is. Even though Premyosapon appears to be the perfect heir for his durian farm and would make a great husband for Karnsita, but Daddy Arnon’s fatherly instinct was activated when he saw the young man’s photos.
“Premyosapon doesn’t pass for me because he is too handsome. He might break my daughter’s heart,” Arnon declared, before canceling the offer.
The millionaire dad had a change of heart and is now willing to wait until his daughter is ready to get married. Too bad he didn’t accept Premyosapon as his daughter’s suitor, but perhaps the young man will find a way to win Karnsita’s heart?
While Arnon had canceled the competition, he promised to follow through with his offer and would still give Karnsita’s future husband the things he promised to the winner…
