Bachelor Australia Contestants Skip the Bachelor, Start Dating Each Other Instead
We’ve always thought The Bachelor was pretty shit, but this proves it.
Tiffany Scanlon and Megan Marx didn’t win the Australian version of The Bachelor, at least not in the traditional sense. Neither contestant ended up with bachelor Richie Strahan, but they did end up with each other. As CBS News reports, fans had been speculating for weeks that there was romance between Marx, 27, and Scanlon, 30. A series of recent Instagram posts confirmed the relationship. “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,” Marx wrote alongside a picture of the couple Sunday. “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.”
“Meeting Megan this year felt like destiny,” Scanlon wrote in her own post. “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.”

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.
