Everyone is loving the story of how two gals met and fell in love on The Bachelor

Well that was unexpected.

QUICK! SOMEBODY TURN this story into a rom-com.

You’re probably well aware of The Bachelor, a dating show that sees loads of women vie for the affections of one bachelor. Each week, women are eliminated until one woman is left standing. This woman is then gifted the ultimate prize – she gets to marry the man.

Grim enough premise, but the show somehow remains enormously popular ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Australian edition is currently making headlines, however, after two contestants found love with each other.

Megan Marx and Tiffany Scanlon were contestants on the most recent season of The Bachelor. Scanlon, 30, was eliminated in episode 3 and Marx, 27, quit in episode 7.

And yesterday they revealed they’re a couple.

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.

In an Instagram post, Marx explained how their relationship came to be.

Marx went on to describe Scanlon as ‘confident,’ ‘fun,’ ‘open-minded’ and ‘accepting,’ and concluded the post with a simple declaration of love.

Happy Birthday Tiffany. I love you.

Tiffany Scanlon shared a similarly warm message on her Instagram:

Meeting Megan this year felt like destiny. The past few months with her in her hometown of Geraldton have been bliss and today’s adventure was the cherry on top. I know we will have many more adventures for many years to come and when she turns 30 i will have to try to top this! Thankyou my darling x

People are living for the romance.
