With bunches of seasons and spinoffs and international iterations, something like this was bound to happen on The Bachelor eventually. Two contestants from Australia’s version of the show have fallen in love.
Megan Marx and Tiffany James met while competing to date some guy who is probably really confused right about now. Here are some photos of the happy couple:
All of their captions were kissy-faced emojis and vague song lyrics, but this post from Marx yesterday appears to have officially confirmed their relationship:
I met Tiffany in a very strange situation. Well… we were kind of dating the same guy. And it was filmed and put on TV ?. From that first cocktail party, it was like this instant calibration between souls, as if we had known each other once before. Friendship ripened into something bolder, trust in a very strange situation was formed, and now every adventure we have rivals the other- and continues to make plans for itself. Yesterday I flew this beautiful woman to The Abrolhos islands for her 30th birthday! I have to admit that I felt so so proud to be with her, my favourite person, celebrating such a momentous occasion on the water- a mutual love of ours. She is so confident in the ocean and in every adventure, as if every new experience is a winning of the lottery somehow; a chance to grow and learn and develop. To Tiffany, experience wins over the worldly acquisition of ‘things’ every time- and I think this is why she is so open-minded, so accepting of others, so fun and so at ease with letting winds blow her towards a variety of opportunities. She’s helped me to disintegrate many of the ideals I’ve had that were harmful (about relationships, about career and ‘stability’) and for that I feel set free. Thank you for always asking questions (detective Tiff), for being curious about people, ideologies and the universe; for loving people with such a wholesome love that I don’t know if I would ever be able to emulate. It inspires me. Happy Birthday Tiffany. I love you.
“Friendship ripened into something bolder” and The Bachelor finally produced an actual relationship in which both people actually love one another. Go figure.
