What can be said about The Bachelor Vietnam season-ending shocker when one female contestant declares her love for another female contestant other than #LOVEisLOVE.
This jaw-dropping moment is TV gold! During the season finale of The Bachelor Vietnam contestant Minh-Thu confesses her love for contestant Truc-Nhu right in front of all the other contestants and the bachelor.
(Pardon us as we narrate.) The juicy exchange occurs after Truc-Nhu turns down the rose from the Bachelor. At least the rejection was done in the most respectful way that one could turn down someone on television. Fortunately, there are subtitles!
Truc-Nhu tells the bachelor that she can’t accept the rose but she knows he will find someone that truly loves him and can give him all that he wants and needs (we’re paraphrasing). Then she walks off stage.
Interestingly, Minh-Thu follows Truc-Nhu off stage. But you really think nothing of it other than possibly a good friend there to console another. Then the camera switches to another scene with Minh-Thu as the focus.
Again, it all seems routine with just one slight prior hiccup, a respectful rejection. Until you see the second rejection of the Bachelors rose by Minh-Thu. Now you’re thinking, “what bad luck he’s having that day.”
While you’re engrossed thinking about the rejection something truly shocking yet brave and somewhat amazing happens! Minh-Thu turns and walks to Truc-Nhu with tears in her eyes as she ever so gently confesses her feelings for her fellow contestant.
At that point, you have been totally transfixed with eyes glued to the screen, mouth wide open and heart fluttering as if you just found your new favorite show. We’ll stop there and let you experience the rest with your own eyes.
All we have left to say is that whoever produces this show just hit the jackpot of made for television glory.
