Megan Marx was a contestant on Australia’s version of The Bachelor, there to prove to a guy that she was the one for him; that above all other girls, Megan was the best. But then, she says, she hit a snag. She actually fell in love with another girl on the show, Tiffany Scanlon.
Yesterday on Instagram, Megan wrote a somewhat lengthy caption about her new relationship and how excited she was. Here’s a snippet from the post:
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…
Happy Birthday Tiffany. I love you.
I am going to come right out in the open and say it. I recognize that this probably isn’t a politically statement, but I don’t care. Here it goes:
I don’t buy it. I don’t buy this relationship for one second. I do not believe that these two gorgeous blondes (who both auditioned and won places on The Bachelor, a reality show in which people know that they’re going to be on TV to become famous) somehow actually wound up falling in love and having a relationship with each other. And believe me, there are few people who want hot blonde lesbians to be together more than I do, but to me this just stinks of a good business plan.
Wait, scratch that. I meant the best business plan. This is pure genius.
Megan and Tiffany have just created the single greatest reality television spinoff show in decades. “Oh, we can’t win The Bachelor? Let’s just start our own show, make a bazillion dollars off it, and then decide that we weren’t really right for each other at the end of five seasons or whenever E! decides to replace our show with something else.”
These two women are perfect for a Keeping Up With The Kardashians-type show. They’re hot, blonde, Australian and probably silly enough to edit together a couple of palatable scenes per episode. Check out Megan’s photos below and tell me she doesn’t deserve her own show.
