Two Contestants Ditch ‘The Bachelor’ and Fall in Love with Each Other Instead

Megan Marx and Tiffany Scanlon were two of 25 contestants in season four of Australia’s The Bachelor meant to woo Richie Strahan, a 31-year-old rope access technician from Perth — how fucking romantic. But instead of falling for him (what is a rope access technician anyway?), the two women fell in love with each other after the season ended.

Scanlon got eliminated in episode three and Marx quit in episode seven, and ever since the two have been canoodling on their respective Instagram accounts. In a recent photo-post, Marx wrote:

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.

Here’s some Instagram shots of the two enjoying life together:

So far the only times you’ve hurt me, is when you’ve made me laugh too hard. @tiffany_janes

As Fusion commented, “They are so in love it is almost unfair. Literally no heterosexual couple to emerge from The Bachelor franchise has ever looked this happy and photogenic and perfect.” So while U.S. gay men are busy trying to find love on the gay version of The Bachelor, Australia’s gay women are just ditching that show and finding love on their own — WERQUE!!!
