Serena Williams & Alexis Ohanian
Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian met tennis champ African-American, Serena Williams at the Hotel Cavalieri Hilton in Rome when Ohanian sat down at the table near Williams’ outside by the pool. Williams and her friends tried to get him to leave by telling him there was a rat at his table. When he refused, they invited him to join them. Ironically enough, Williams had never heard of Reddit before, and Ohanian had never watched Williams play tennis, but he agreed to watch her play in a match later that day. About a year later Ohanian proposed in the same place where they met.
