Minh Thu shocked viewers after she declared her love for another contestant, Truc Nhu, in what was later determined behind the scenes to be a genuine, unscripted twist during the show’s rose ceremony. It was the first time in the over 100 seasons of “The Bachelor” that such an empowering yet heartbreaking scene was captured on-screen.
Now that they are both off the show, it has been confirmed that they two women are now together. “They left the show and have been together since. We delivered on our promise that two people would find love,” Executive Producer Anh Tran confirmed with Nextshark.
Fans of the show were delighted to share their feelings on what is a groundbreaking development in the local pop culture.
Anh-Thu Nguyen, one of the producers of the show, explained the impact of Thu’s and Nhu’s moment:
“As both a queer Vietnamese-American woman and as someone involved in the show who witnessed this first hand, this was a moving and powerful moment showcasing that love is love.
“Especially in the context of Vietnamese culture, where family and saving face can often be prioritized over all else, including love, the fact these women made this declaration during the rose ceremony in front of everyone is even more 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.”
