“The Bachelor: Vietnam” drew the attention of global audiences when two female contestants on the popular dating reality franchise show shockingly ditched the male bachelor- for each other in what would go down as one astounding queer moment on television.

Trailer and clips from the Vietnam franchise showed one of the contestants Minh Thu make the stunning revelation in front of bachelor Nguyen Quoc Trung. She said teary-eyed: “I went into this competition to find love. But it isn’t you- it’s someone else.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Omg on The Bachelor Vietnam, 2 women fell in love��♥️♥️ <a href="https://t.co/WiNwfhCyXd">pic.twitter.com/WiNwfhCyXd</a></p>&mdash; PJ����‍♀️ (@_Influential) <a href="https://twitter.com/_Influential/status/1043578453763731457?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 22, 2018</a></blockquote>

Making things more shocking, Thu then walked over to fellow contestant Truc Nhu, who had been given a rose by the bachelor. To the collective shock of their fellow contestants, Thu then told Nhu, “Come home with me”’, before embracing her.

Adding more drama and conflict to the already unexpected twist, bachelor Trung tried to dissuade Nhu from leaving with Thu, convincing her that she’d “have regret” if she did so.

Nhu returned the rose to the bachelor and said: “I’m sorry, I’m giving back your rose.” Giving of roses play a significant role in each franchise of the show. Nhu tried to console the bachelor with her shocking decision by saying: “I know you’ll find someone who really loves you, who understands you, knows how to take care of you.”

Such queer moment is the first of its kind in the international franchise’s 16-year history. The show debuted in the U.S. in 2002 and has since expanded to 20 countries worldwide.

But as if the surprising twists and turns were not enough, and just as the two women seemingly smitten with each other were walking out, Nhu had a change of heart. She returned to Thrung’s arms and said, “I’ve changed my mind to accept this rose and continue this journey.”

Thu may have left the show alone, but she has become the toast of the online world.
