Richie and Alex aren’t the only 2016 Bachelor couple attracting headlines.
Since meeting on the set, contestants Megan Marx and Tiffany Scanlon have clearly developed a beautiful bond that’s left some speculating they may have found love after all.
And now, it seems, Megan has confirmed it.
The 27-year-old shared an Instagram post this weekend featuring her and Tiffany at the beach, their bikini-clad bodies covered in mud.
The caption: “Gettin’ muddy with my love @tiffany_janes.”
"My love". LOVE. She used the word love!
Of course, it's not exactly an official relationship status update, but the romantic part of us just wants to leap to the best possible conclusion: they're totally together.
The pair have shared several intimate pictures on social media over the last few weeks, including a number in which they are inexplicably nude.
Like that time they went for a naked jog and happened across some chairs.
And who could forget that night they decided that spaghetti-eating was a clothing-optional event.

The most recent post comes on the back of one shared by Megan earlier this month, in which she wrote "There are many things I love, and here is one" alongside a picture of herself and the 29-year-old pressing their noses together.
The Western Australian health promotions officer also recently told OK! Magazine that Tiffany relocated to her hometown of Geraldton and they now see each other almost every day.
"Tiff is a beautiful woman and we’re very close… Sometimes you just meet people who you have a strong connection with and I guess that started in the house and it never finished," she said.
"I think that when it comes to attraction, for me, it’s usually a connection of minds and humour before anything else, and I’m traditionally attracted to men but I don’t rule anything out… I would say that Tiff’s in the same boat."
Megan was considered a front-runner in this year's season of The Bachelor, until she famously left Richie Strahan in the lurch and walked out ahead of a rose ceremony (video above).
