As you may remember, Michelle was added to the cast a few weeks into Matt’s Bachelor season. But despite her late start, the teacher had an instant spark with the lead. Then during their first one-on-one date, Matt revealed how he really felt about Michelle.

“The conversation with Michelle is flowing a lot smoother than some of the women who have been in the house for four weeks now,” Matt said. “We’re able to have fun … have this great experience during the day. Then we’re able to really dig deep and talk about things that matter, things that are gonna affect the future. That’s the type of depth that I’m looking for in a woman.”

As Matt’s journey continued to move forward, so did his connection with Michelle. So when the cast member made it through to Hometowns, many viewers weren’t surprised. Then when Matt met Michelle’s parents, the contestant realized she was falling in love. 

“I can say that I’m falling in love with you,” Michelle told Matt. “That makes me so excited. It’s so scary and it’s so genuine and it’s so real.”

In response, Matt smiled at Michelle and the couple kissed.

On March 6, The Bachelor’s Instagram and Twitter accounts shared a preview featuring Michelle and Matt on their next date during Fantasy Suite week. 

“I’m ready to get even closer to Matt today with whatever that means we’re doing,” Michelle said and laughed.

Then Bachelor Nation fans were filled in on the joke. As the promo continued, Matt and Michelle walked into a room at the Nemacolin Resort in Pennsylvania, which included a bath that was seemingly filled with milk. Both reality stars playfully commented on the strange room.

“This is weird,” Matt said in a confessional with Bachelor producers. “There’s a bear in the corner, a container that looks like oatmeal, a massive tub full of this… looks like milk. 

That said, it seemed Matt and Michelle made the most of their time together. “I’m into it, you know,” Matt said. “The Pennsylvania Dutch experience.” 

Meanwhile, Michelle gushed over her connection with Matt. “I really feel like Matt is my person,” Michelle said. “We can be sitting in a milk bath, covered in butter, and it feels comfortable. It feels like home.”

The Bachelor preview ended with a romantic kiss.

The Bachelor teaser hinted that Matt and Michelle have a deep connection on the show. So many viewers are hoping to see Michelle as the final pick — or at the very least, the next bachelorette. For now, fans will have to wait and see how the couple’s story unfolds. But if you can’t wait another week, franchise spoiler king Reality Steve shared what happens to Matt and Michelle in the finale.

On March 4, Reality Steve claimed that Matt will pick Rachael Kirkconnell over Michelle in The Bachelor finale. The blogger also shared how Matt will say goodbye to the contestant.

“Both Michelle and Rachael meet his mom,” Reality Steve wrote. “On the night portion of his last date with Michelle, she gave him jerseys for the two of them. However, he breaks it off with her on this night. Says he loves Michelle but is not in love with her. She suspects it’s because of Rachael and he confirms.”

At this point, The Bachelor franchise and ABC have yet to confirm Reality Steve’s spoilers. So viewers will have to tune in to see what actually happens. But whatever happens next, it looks like there will be some drama.
