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.

Best twist ever? Contestants from the Australian version of The Bachelor went to find love with leading man Richie Strahan, but ended up falling for each other.

Megan Marx and Tiffany Scanlon met on the reality show earlier this year, but both were sent home. (Strahan picked Alex Nation on the finale that aired in September.) In recent weeks, the two castoffs have been sharing photos of each other on their respective social media accounts. Some photos have been of them hugging, posing in bed while wearing lingerie and swimming at the beach.

The ladies appeared to finally come clean about their relationship in an Instagram post on Sunday. Marx, 27, gave Scanlon, 30, a shout-out in honor of her birthday.

"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," she joked. "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."

Marx went on to reveal that she flew "beautiful" Scanlon to Houtman Abrolhos to celebrate her milestone. "I have to admit that I felt so so proud to be with her, my favorite 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," she gushed. "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."

In turn, Scanlon called Marx her "favorite person" and thanked her for making her day so special. "Meeting Megan this year felt like destiny," Scanlon captioned a pic of the two on their getaway on Sunday. "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 x #1til30."
