Speaking to BuzzFeed, the shows senior story producer Anh-Thu said:
From being able to witness this clip unfold firsthand on our show, I find that the true story here is that love defies labels and can develop in unexpected places in beautiful and complicated ways, and that being able to be true to yourself and having the courage to admit your feelings is powerful.
In the cynical age that we live in, it’s very easy to believe these things are staged, but if you look at every contestant’s face as well as the host’s, you can tell this is 100% real.
There aren't any fast cuts nor do we overplay the scene. This scene breathes on its own.
