The two Bachelor: Vietnam contestants who made headlines when they dumped their man and rushed off the show together have found love after all! As RadarOnline.com has learned, Minh Thu and Truc Nhu are now in a relationship!
Readers recall that back in September, the women gave teary speeches at a rose ceremony saying that they were in love with one another, and not with their male Bachelor.
"I've found that love... But it isn't you. It's someone else," said Minh Thu at the time, begging Truc Nhu to go home with her.
After a long pause, Nhu agreed, but eventually decided to go back to the show for two more episodes. Fans of the couple were disappointed that the women didn't find their happily ever after on the show, but now it seems all is well in paradise, and they are officially dating!
"They left the show and have been together since. We delivered on our promise that two people would find love," The show's executive producer, Anh Tran, told Nextshark.
Apparently, both women agreed that Nhu should go back on the show to figure out if she really did have feelings for Thu, or if it was just a strong friendship. Luckily for them, her return to the show only assured her of her love for her co-contestant.
"It's been a proud experience to see our clip resonate around the world and become an unexpected platform for discussing LGBTQI+ issues in Vietnam on a global scale," Bachelor: Vietnam producer Anh-Thu Nguyen told NextShark, adding that the women's love story has been "especially" powerful seeing as Vietnemese culture still has a long way to go in terms of LGBTQ rights and acceptance.
