The Bachelor Vietnam contestants who fell in love are an official couple now.

Hallelujah, Bachie love does exist.

We may not have gotten a happy ending down under, but the Bachelor Vietnam has come through for us.

Remember a few weeks ago when the Vietnamese version of the franchise aired the best Bachelor episode in the history of the show?

A very dramatic scene took place at the rose ceremony – where our favourite type of tear-filled drama usually unfolds.

Contestant Minh Thu is chosen by the Honey Badger equivalent, Nguyen Quoc Trung, to be sent home, but instead of packing herself in to the awaiting limo to resume her normal, rose ceremony-less, life, she… stays.

Looking up at the Nguyen Quoc Trung through tears, she begins to explain that she had actually had found love on her reality TV journey… But not with him.

“I went into this competition to find love and I’ve found that love for myself, BUT it isn’t with you. It’s with someone else,” she said.

In the full, uncut and oh-so-emotional version of the scene below, Minh Thu then turns to the remaining contestants and pours her heart out to fellow contestant Truc Nhu, asking her to leave the show with her instead.

Although the two contestants walked out of the rose ceremony together, Truc Nhu had a change of heart and decided to stay in the running to win Nguyen Quoc Trung’s heart.

We wept.

Well, two episodes later, Truc Nhu decided to leave The Bachelor to be with Minh Thu.


Now, in an episode of After the Rose, the pair have confirmed that they are still together.

According to a translation on Reddit, both women agreed Nhu would stay on the show to give each other time to make sure their feelings were real.

"She stayed on for 2 more eps and asked to leave the show saying 'She already found what she was looking for and it’s waiting for her at home'."

Okay, we're weeping again. But this time they're happy tears. Enjoy those warm fuzzies, people.
