Bachelor: Vietnam Contestants Who Left Rose Ceremony Together Are Now in a Relationship

It may have taken a couple extra episodes, but the two women from Bachelor: Vietnam got their happy ending after all!

While the show doesn’t frequently make waves across the globe, a September rose ceremony made headlines after Minh Thu asked her fellow contestant Truc Nhu to leave the show to be with her.

Although Nhu ultimately decided to stay in the house at the time, the show’s executive producer Anh Tran has confirmed that the pair are currently together.

“They left the show and have been together since. We delivered on our promise that two people would find love,” Tran told Nextshark after a Facebook post regarding the pair’s relationship status went viral.

In the post, a social media user wrote that during a later episode it was revealed that Nhu’s decision not to immediately walk away from the program was something the women “both agreed” on.

“They just wanted to make sure their feelings weren’t just a misconception of love because they are so close,” the social media user explained, adding that Nhu stayed on the show for two additional episodes before she asked to leave as she had “already found what she was looking for.”

The romantic conclusion came as a big relief to fans of the couple, who had been dismayed when their love story seemingly hadn’t panned out.

During the September episode, after it seemed like she would not be receiving a rose, Thu tearfully explained to the bachelor, Nguyen Quoc Trung, that her heart belonged to another person.

“I went into this competition to find love,” she said. “But I’ve found that love for myself. But it isn’t you. It’s someone else.”

Thu then left her spot in the lineup and walked over to Nhu. After sharing a long hug, Thu implored Nhu to “come home with me.”

In an effort to get Nhu to stay, Trung asked the contestant to give him another chance, arguing that he thought she’d “have regret” if she left.

Making her own decision, Nhu proceeded to return the rose and walk away with Thu, although according to NextShark, she ultimately decided to remain on the show.

Addressing the larger significance of the television moment, Bachelor: Vietnam producer Anh-Thu Nguyen told NextShark that their love story was “especially” powerful “in the context of Vietnamese culture.”

“It’s been a proud experience to see our clip resonate around the world and become an unexpected platform for discussing LGBTQI+ issues in Vietnam on a global scale,” she added.

Unifi’s Repreve Brand Enters Vietnam

Unifi Inc. continues to expand the global footprint of its Repreve recycled fiber, entering into Vietnam by signing a licensing agreement with Century Synthetic Fiber Corp.
Under the deal, Century Corp. will manufacture, sell and distribute Repreve filament yarn in Vietnam, and Unifi Textiles (Suzhou) Co. Ltd., Unifi’s subsidiary in China, will manage sales and distribution of Repreve filament yarn exported from Vietnam.
Unifi said this collaboration will open distribution channels for Repreve in a key apparel-producing region, helping to fulfill increasing demand and shorten lead times to the company’s customer base.
Headquartered in Ho Chi Minh City, Century Corp. is one of the largest polyester yarn manufacturers in Vietnam. Century Corp. was established more than 15 years ago and continues to invest in its operations and expand capacity.
“Vietnam has been a region of focus for brands and retailers over the past few years,” said Tom Caudle, president of Unifi. “The growth in the region cannot be ignored, with exports of approximately $ 27 billion of apparel and textiles in 2015, and expectations to grow to $ 30 billion in 2016. Within the past 18 months, we’ve grown distribution of Repreve to include Turkey, Taiwan, Sri Lanka and now, Vietnam.”

Price of War, The: Urbanization in Urbanization in Vietnam 1954-85

Price of War, The: Urbanization in Urbanization in Vietnam 1954-85


Much rare material is incorporated in this unique account of urbanization in a developing country that was ravaged by war for twenty years. With due emphasis on the experience of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), the authors present an account of what happened to the towns and cities of Vietnam between the establishment of Ho Chi Minh's socialist state in 1954 and the mid 1980s. The story is introduced through a general theoretical and empirical account of urbanization in socialist Third World countries. The book stresses the importance of the turmoil created by warfare in directing urbanization, but it also refers to the more conventially studied determinants of the process such as the institution of a planned economy. As one of the few books highlighting the impact of warfare on urban settlements, The Price of War will interest all those interested in urbanization, development and South-East Asia. This book was first published in 1986.

How Losing His Brother in Vietnam Inspired One Man to Join the Civil Rights Movement | #Selma50

For Herb Metoyer, the period from 1963 to 1965 is still an open wound. In 1963, during his first tour as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam, he lost several aircrafts and quite a few crew members, which he refers to as his first experience with death. Then, in November, he and the rest of the country learned of John F. Kennedy Jr.’s assassination. Finally, when he returned to the United States in early 1964, he was told that his brother, a fellow helicopter pilot, died when his aircraft crashed in the South China Sea.
