Michelle Young returned to The Bachelor for Clayton Echard’s finale

This is not the first time that Michelle has revealed her thoughts on how her former contestant Clayton Echard’s season played out.

She recently returned to the stage with several other Bachelor Nation alumni to react to the first part of Clayton’s controversial final episode.

Despite praising everyone’s vulnerability, Michelle said that the lead should be careful to handle the situation more delicately.

“Anyone else feel like they need a nap after that episode!?” Michelle captioned a post documenting the occasion. The former lead stunned in an emerald green dress and matching wrap heels as she took the stage.

She also included shots posing with Kaitlyn Bristowe, Clare Crawley, and Cassie Randolph.

Michelle and fiancé Nayte Olukoya also yelled in dismay earlier this season as Clayton sent Elizabeth Corrigan home.

She even returned briefly to visit Clayton in an early season unaired clip. This may provide some hope to fans that Michelle will make another appearance on the upcoming season to cheer the girls on.
