Nayte and Brandon both met Michelle’s parents, Ephraim and LaVonne, and both shared their hopes for the future with Michelle.

“I’m still not sure that at the end of this you really feel like you’d be ready for an engagement,” LaVonne had told Nayte during their meeting. “I’m not sure you’re 100 percent in.”

Meanwhile, the parents did very much approve of Brandon, telling him: “If she picks you we will gladly adopt you into our family, no questions asked.”

After they both met her family, Michelle then had a big decision to make between them.

“Waking up this morning I felt confused,” Michelle said. “I have two incredible men who I am in love with and they are in love with me.”

In the end, Michelle chose Nayte.

“I want to run away with you,” Nayte said to her. “I want to run away to forever with the woman that I’ve come to love. This amazingly crazy, wow kind of love. And through this journey, you’ve shared a lot of vulnerable sides of your past and I know that you’ve felt unseen at times and I want to let you know that I am completely prepared, willing and ready to make sure that you are always chosen first, seen now, today and tomorrow and for the rest of our lives. I love you, Michelle.”

Michelle added that while their journey “has not necessarily been a smooth ride, but I’m also not willing to face that fear of walking away from this without you because I have never felt a love like this before.”

“And I love you with my entire heart and don’t ever want to think about waking up next to anyone beside you and doing life with anyone besides you and at the end, I wanted to be standing in front of my soulmate and he is definitely standing right in front of me.”

Nayte then dropped to one knee to propose.

“Michelle, I love you,” he said. “I love you. I don’t want to ever let go. I am absolutely crazy for you. Michelle Anne Young, will you marry me?”

Michelle accepted, and gave Nayte her final rose: “This is my soul-Nayte.”

Afterwards, a mariachi band came out to celebrate.

“This is the happiest day of my life,” Nayte said, “and so ready to start the rest of my life with Michelle.”
