Two women dump THE BACHELOR: Vietnam for each other
In a series first, THE BACHELOR, a popular dating reality show that has spawned numerous international versions, has a female contestant confess her love for another female contestant during the coveted rose ceremony. Watch the clip above (courtesy of Entertainment Tonight):

Contestants Minh Thu and Truc Nhu flipped the script on the show’s concept and instead of competing for the affections of the titular bachelor, Nguyen Quoc Trung, they left together.
“I went into this competition to find love and I’ve found that love for myself, but it isn’t with you,” Thu started to say when she deduced she wouldn’t be getting a rose. “It’s with someone else.”
That’s when she went over to Nhu, who embraced her crying co-star. “Come home with me. Come home with me,” Thu repeated. Though she appeared to be mulling her decision, Nhu eventually left the show with her new love. At least, that’s how it appeared.
However, another twist happened at the end of the show when Nhu had second thoughts and returned to the rose ceremony, changing her mind to follow her journey to be with the bachelor after all.
So while it appears that the love story between Thu and Nhu has ended, it was still a wild moment of television.
THE BACHELOR: Vietnam is produced by a few friends of mine — Timothy Linh Bui, Don Le, Anh Tran and directed by Danny Do — all are from California and now living full-time in Vietnam and it looks like they made TV history.
