It looks like the gay Bachelor contestants are going strong.
Last year, Vietnam’s version of the Bachelor made headlines after one female contestant, named Minh Thu, professed her love. The thing is, she professed it to another female contestant.
“I went into this competition to find love and I’ve found that love for myself,” said Minh Thu during a rose ceremony, in which the Bachelor chooses which contestants will stay for another work. “But it isn’t with you. It’s with someone else…”
Minh Thu then turned to another contestant named Truc Nhu and asked for the two to walk away together. For Truc Nhu, this came with a price as she had already been given a rose to continue on with the show. Backstage, the Bachelor, Nguyen Quoc Trung, convinced Truc Nhu to stay. But, Truc Nhu decided to leave two episodes later.
Now six months later, it seems that the relationship between these two is going strong. Twitter rediscovered the couple late last week and fell back in love with them.
Remember the Vietnamese woman on The Bachelor who confessed her love to another contestant? THEY'RE TOGETHER NOW. Truc Nhu stayed on to figure out her feelings and make sure it wasn't a fleeting thing, and then asked to leave the show because "I've found what I'm looking for" pic.twitter.com/D2EyrO0m56

A lot of vietnamese were against them because the country is extremely close-minded (and only straights would watch bachelor) but these two gained a significant amount of international support and young people in vietnam are starting to speak up against homophobia i’m so proud pic.twitter.com/eKu5yVGGeZ
