Following weeks of speculation, contestants Megan Marx and Tiffany Scanlon from The Bachelor Australia have confirmed that they’re in a relationship.
The rumours circulated after the two met on the reality TV show in which they were competing against each other for the affections of the bachelor, Richie Strahan. Since leaving the show, the pair have appeared inseparable, posting a number of suggestive and racy photos on social media.
The pair were holidaying on the Abrolhos islands in celebration of Tiffany’s 30th birthday, when Megan took to Instagram to declare her love for the woman she describes as her ‘inspiration’.
“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.
She concluded the post with “Happy Birthday Tiffany. I love you.”
Tiffany posted her own heartfelt message in response, describing Megan as her “favourite person in the world” and that meeting her this year felt like ‘destiny’.
“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,” Tiffany said.
Last month, Megan refused to comment on her romance with Tiffany during an interview with OK! Magazine, simply stating that they didn’t have the ‘most conventional relationship.’
I don’t know about you, but I’m totally shipping these two way more than Richie and Alex!
