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." (More The Bachelor stories.)
