Việt Nam’s version of “The Bachelor” recently captured a special moment which has never been seen in other iterations of the popular relationship reality show.
In one emotional episode, one female contestant proclaimed her love, not toward the “Bachelor,” but to another female contestant during the “rose ceremony.”
Making franchise history, “The Bachelor Việt Nam” is the first version which had one contestant attempted to convince another to leave the show together on national TV.
While the scene shown on local television was a slightly watered down version, an uncut web version exists and shows the entire special moment.
Minh Thu confesses love, but not to the Bachelor Việt Nam
In the clip, Minh Thu, a contestant who did not receive a rose (which meant she will be exiting the show), professed her feelings in front of the cameras.
“I went into this competition to find love and I’ve found that love for myself, but it isn’t with you.
It’s with someone else.”
She then ran toward one of the other contestants named Trúc Như, gave her a tight hug and said:
“Come home with me.”

Trúc Như, who already received a rose from the bachelor named Nguyễn Quốc Trung earlier, returned the emotional embrace while all the other contestants began tearing up.
Trúc Như then approached Quốc Trung and says:
I really want to get to know you.
Because you’re someone who made me feel special and I haven’t felt that way in a long time.”
There has never been anything like this happening on-air in the history of the franchise, which covers 100 different seasons in over 30 different countries
While surprised by the sudden turn of events, Quốc Trung calmly responded with:
“I want you to know that if you do this, you’ll feel regretful.
This won’t change my decision.
I’m not going to give this rose to anyone else.”
While the two women walked out of the rose ceremony together, Trúc Như ended up deciding to stay in the show after Quốc Trung had a heart-to-heart with her.
According to the show-runners, there has never been anything like this happening on-air in the history of the franchise, which covers 100 different seasons in over 30 different countries.
