The latest rose ceremony of Vietnam’s The Bachelor contained a twist the likes of which fans of the reality television series have never seen.
In the viral clip, contestant Minh Thu—who did not receive a rose from Bachelor Quoc Trung—tearfully professed her love to contestant Truc Nhu, while nestling her head up against her chest.
“Come home with me,” she passionately beseeches Nhu.
Nhu, who did receive a rose, returns it to Trung, who pleads with her to stay and warns she may regret the decision, before the two women exit the ceremony together.
Nhu had kind words for the Bachelor before leaving:
I know you’ll find someone who really loves you, who understands you, knows how to take care of you, who can look at you from afar and know how you’re feeling. I’m sorry.
Here’s the viral clip:

They must have a real love for each other to express their emotions on public TV. I think it was brave & beautiful.

Unfortunately, although the moment was a showstopper, Thu and Nhu’s decision to leave together didn’t last for long:

:/ it sucks that the short haired girl didn’t like her back and ended up staying for the guy. I really want this girl to have someone who loves her back
