'The Bachelor' Vietnam Just Got Its First LGBT Moment

Chris Harrison is going to have to retire his go-to Bachelor teaser, “this is the most dramatic moment in Bachelor history” because earlier this week, something happened on Bachelor Vietnam that truly can never be topped. If Winter Games taught us anything it’s that 1) nobody wants to see Bachelor contestants in the snow and 2) there are other bachelors in foreign countries, and they’re low-key better than ours.

Across the pond (well, a few ponds) a very handsome Vietnamese man named Nguyen Quoc Trung was doing what all bachelors do: hosting either one-on-one or two-on-one dates until he finds love.

But God and Bachelor producers laugh at plans, so when the rose ceremony came around and the bachelor gave his rose to Minh Thu, she tearfully turned him down. She could not accept the rose from him, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t find love. She just didn’t fall in love with him. In fact, she didn’t find love with any “him” at all.

Minh Thu asked fellow contestant Truc Nhu to come home with her, and together they left the mansion to live in beautiful lesbian bliss. Of course, they didn’t leave before Nhu told Trung, “I know you’ll find someone who really loves you, who understands you, who knows how to take care of you, who can look at you from afar and know how you’re feeling. I’m sorry.”

For the record, I’ve saved that speech and put it into my “Automatic responses” on my phone so I can just shoot it off as a text whenever I need to.

Now, in being true to the franchise, there was one final twist. After the two women left together, Nhu decided to return and continue her journey on the show. Meanwhile, I’ll be patiently waiting for her adaptation of the book Art of The Deal as I feel we have a lot to learn from her in love and in business.
