'The Bachelorette' Premiere Recap: Michelle Sends Home One Guy With A Lot of Red Flags

Michelle Young kicked off her season of The Bachelorette, by kicking one guy with a lot of red flags out!

The 28-year-old teacher’s evening was filled with a lot of meet and greets, and ultimately facing a very tough decision.

“I’m looking for somebody who is genuine and passionate, completely authentic,” Michelle shared ahead of meeting her suitors on the program.

Just as she said that though, hosts Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe found out something alarming about one of the contestants.

Before Michelle started to meet the guys, Tayshia and Kaitlyn were looking out for her, and went through the guys’ hotel rooms. While most didn’t send off any alarms for them, there was one who definitely did.

The co-hosts found Ryan‘s notes about how to score more screen time, how to get a good edit, who to emulate from the franchise and his overall strategy for the show.

But before they could tell Michelle, she had to meet Ryan, which she did when he rolled up in an ice cream truck.

“Did someone named Michelle order a double scoop of love?” “I sure did,” Michelle responded, later adding, “You did your homework.”

She added, “This man already gets brownie points. I feel like ice cream is kind of like the way to my heart.”

Ryan talked to Michelle about being a coach for the Special Olympics and Michelle confessed in an on-camera interview, “I really did feel a connection with him right off the bat.”

After that though, Tayshia and Kaitlyn did tell Michelle about what they found.

“We found a document that one of the guys had, and it had a lot of things about how to act around you, about how not be a ‘villain,’” Tayshia told her.

“I was really a little bit caught off guard when Tayshia and Kaitlyn checked in on me tonight and said they stopped by your room and when they were there, they saw some notes about how to get the most screen time, how to not be the villain, searching up facts about teachers — basically acting like you’re interested in the profession,” Michelle then told Ryan later on. “And so I wanted to pull you aside because I do want to hear an explanation and I want this cleared up very quickly.”

“To be perfectly honest, I’m very new to The Bachelor and I haven’t seen much of it,” he insisted. “So I had no idea what to expect and I wanted to get to know, who is Michelle?”

“But the notes weren’t about me. The notes were about how you should act,” Michelle replied.

As she looked over the notes he claimed were written by a friend’s wife, it still put a bad feeling in Michelle: “I am not okay with stating a relationship on red flags.”

“Just give me one chance to make it up to you,” Ryan said.

But, Michelle said no: “You need to respect that I am going to choose to listen to my red flags and so, unfortunately, I will be walking you out.”
