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!


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.

Ideally, a teacher should take the job because of a genuine interest in helping students, furthering their education as well as their self-development. Of course, it's not as simple as that (administrative issues aside). Unfortunately, there are some teachers out there who aren't cut out for the job––and they even have a mean streak when it comes to their students. The effects this can have on the learning process are dire.

Teachers don't get paid well, and they're well aware. Many stick with the job because they have a passion for teaching; many others stick with the job because of the position of inscrutable authority it offers them over helpless students.

People shared their experiences after Redditor Ara-Rat asked the online community,

"What did your teacher do that made you call them 'the worst teacher ever'?"
