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.


WILDEST rose ceremony moment: Minh-Thu confesses love, but NOT to the Bachelor Vietnam youtu.be


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!


Did Truc Nhu and Minh Thu have their happily ever after? Truc Nhu's awaited first response youtu.be


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.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
