Rose ceremonies on The Bachelor are usually drama-packed, but Vietnam’s version of the hit TV show has quite the surprise plot twist.
In a clip that’s since gone viral, contestant Minh Thu was left without a rose from the show’s Bachelor, Quoc Trung.
But before leaving for good, she decided to stun everyone by professing her love to another contestant, Truc Nhu, then convincing her to leave the show.
“Come home with me,” Minh Thu tells Truc Nhu. If only other versions of The Bachelor were this interesting.
Truc Nhu, who has a rose, then decides to hand it back to the show’s Bachelor, Quoc Trung, before leaving with Minh Thu.
“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,” Truc Nhu said.
It’s certainly the first time we’ve seen something like this happen on the dating show. In the Australian version of the TV series, two contestants dated each other, but not until after the show had finished.
The spectacle didn’t last for long, with Truc Nhu eventually deciding to stay on the show after being convinced by Quoc Trung to stay, according to Nextshark.
For a show that’s normally pretty trashy, and a haven for unrelenting straightness, this moment is a welcome reprieve from it all — even if it didn’t last for long.
