One of the wildest rose ceremonies in Bachelor history took place in September on The Bachelor: Vietnam. In an especially dramatic real-world twist, contestant Minh Thu was just about to depart the show, having missed out on a rose, when she stopped and felt she needed to admit she'd fallen in love... not with The Bachelor, but with one of her fellow contestants. Though things seemed hazy for a little while, it now seems the pair are happily dating!


In the ceremony, Minh Thu tearfully admitted her love for fellow contestant Truc Nhu. She walked to Nhu and asked her:

Come home with me.

Though the Bachelor, Quoc Trung, tried to convince her to stay, Nhu returned her rose and appeared to leave the show with Minh Thu.

But when Truc Nhu returned to the show the following week, fans worried about what had become of the other blossoming relationship. Two weeks later, however, Nhu returned her rose once again and departed for good.

Now, it seems Thu and Nhu are happily together!

The internet couldn't be happier:









Anh-Thu Nguyen, "a producer for the show, who is also queer and Vietnamese-American" found the moment "awe-inspiring:"

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.



In 2015, Vietnam abolished their ban on same-sex marriages, but the country still doesn't recognize LGBTQ marriages or allow them to happen legitimately within the Vietnamese government. Hopefully, inspiring stories like Thu and Nhu's will help sway the country's culture in a more progressive direction.

Dating and the search for love and companionship... What a nightmare.

This journey plays out nothing like in the movies.

Every Prince or Princess (or everything in BTW) seems to have a touch of the psycho.

The things people say during what should be simple dinner conversation can leave a dining partner aghast.

Like... do you hear you?

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Some call it naivitée, other's youthful innocence.

But it's hard not to look back with embarrassment on certain things we believed as a child, that today might simply seem dumb.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:

"What's the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?"
