Spoilers for Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette below:
There are already rumblings about who Michelle Young, Season 18 lead of The Bachelorette, will give her final rose to. Ahead of the premiere, consistent The Bachelor franchise scooper Reality Steve dropped some spoilers regarding the season.
Also, prior to the premiere, ABC released a photo of the cast, confirming that Nayte Olukoya would win the first impression rose on night one, proving he’s a top contender.
The 27-year-old Austin, Texas resident and Young have instant chemistry. The picture that ABC dropped also featured 29 out of 30 contestants, with Ryan Fox missing, leading most to believe he was sent home in the premiere episode.
Per Reality Steve, Nayte Olukoya makes it all the way with Brandon Jones as runner-up.
The report notes that he and Brandon Jones make it to the finale.
They are reportedly the only contestants who may propose Young’s hand in marriage.
Young allegedly chooses Olukoya over Jones. The two are said to still be together and are engaged. “Had heard rumblings since the season ended but got the confirmation I needed the end of last week. Michelle is engaged to Nayte Olukoya,” Reality Steve wrote on Oct. 5.
Michelle Young and Nayte Olukoya will make history.
Young is the third Black lead in the franchise’s history.
Her choosing Olukoya would make history as the first couple of color on the franchise. Young comes behind Rachel Lindsay and Tayshia Adams, but both Adams and Lindsay chose white men.
The Bachelorette airs weekly on Tuesdays on ABC.
