Coming up roses

These “Bachelor” contestants left the show… and found true love with each other

Remember when those Bachelor contestants turned reality TV on its head when they ran off into the sunset together as a same-sex couple rather than continue vying for the favor of the Bachelor?

Well, it warms our hearts to hear that it wasn’t just a stunt — Minh Thu and Truc Nhu are still very much together and in love after walking off The Bachelor: Vietnam in September 2019.

To recap, Minh was set to leave the show after the male bachelor didn’t rose her up, and as she left, she confessed that she had her eyes on her fellow female contestant.

‘‘I went into this competition to find love, but I’ve found that love for myself. But it isn’t you. It’s someone else,” Thu said at the time.

When it was Nhu’s turn to leave the show two episodes later, she said she “already found what she was looking for and it’s waiting for her at home.”

Well wouldn’t you know it, the two women had fallen in love, and they’re still an item.

It all made for some exceptional TV — for once, the drama didn’t need to be manufactured by producers:

Here are some updates from the adorable pair:
