Now that Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette is almost wrapped up, viewers are looking forward to Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette this fall.
Michelle was the runner-up from Matt James’ season of The Bachelor. Now, she will have the chance to lead her own season and meet up to 35 eligible men.
Now, viewers will get their first glimpse into what to expect for Michelle’s season.
Bachelorette producer Mike Fleiss uploaded a picture of Michelle on set.
Michelle wears black and white track pants and a crop top as she sits on a sports bench.
She seems to be wearing a whistle as she leans against a cart of basketballs.
Mike captioned the post, “On location with our #TheBachelorette.”
Michelle Young has a special connection to basketball
It seems like Michelle and her men might be filming one of The Bachelorette’s renowned athletic group dates.
This is an especially fitting date for Michelle since she is a basketball player.
Michelle played for the Bradley Braves at Bradley University from 2011-2015.
According to her bio page, she played guard.
It appears that she’ll have plenty of experience to bring to the table for this basketball date.
