The Bachelor contestants find love with each other

RICHIE Strahan wasn't the only person to find love on the most recent season of The Bachelor.

Two eliminated contestants, Megan Marx and Tiffany Scanlon, are in a relationship after meeting on the show.

In an Instagram post celebrating Ms Scanlon's 30th birthday, Ms Marx wrote: "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."
 

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.

Ms Marx famously walked out on Richie during a rose ceremony, admitting the competitive reality dating show wasn't for her.

Viewers would best remember Ms Scanlon for face off against Richie in a push-up contest despite being frocked up for one of the show's cocktail parties.

The women haven't been keeping their budding romance a secret. Ms Scanlon has featured in Ms Marx's Instagram posts for the past few months and the pair have posed in some racy lingerie shots together.

Perhaps everyone has been distracted by the current season of The Bachelorette?

The women have clearly been watching The Bachelor's sister show too. They recently caught up with Noosa-born Bachelorette contestant Ryan Palk, who now lives in Perth.
