Before Michelle became the next lead for The Bachelorette Season 18, she was on The Bachelor Season 25 with Matt James. The 28-year-old elementary school teacher from Edina, Minnesota, won the hearts of Bachelor Nation. However, she didn’t win Matt’s heart in the end.

During The Bachelor finale, Matt admitted he couldn’t “get there” with Michelle, and the couple broke up. But Michelle’s journey is far from over. She will be the second bachelorette in 2021, following The Bachelorette Season 17 with Katie Thurston.

The Bachelorette Season 18 promo trailer takes fans through Michelle’s journey. The preview starts with a shot of the new lead in a stunning white dress by designer Stanley Hudson as “Bounce Back” by Little Mix plays in the background. Michelle glides through a building filled with flowers designed by Bloom and Plume, and she picks up a single red rose. Then the teaser takes Bachelor Nation fans down memory lane.

Suddenly, Michelle catches a basketball and shoots the ball into a diamond basket. The reality star played Division I college basketball at Bradley University. Meanwhile, Michelle walks through a classroom with “Miss Young” written on a chalkboard in the background. The new bachelorette smiles as she picks up an apple. Of course, this is a nod to Michelle’s teaching career. 

Finally, The Bachelorette promo teases what’s next for Michelle as she starts her new journey to find love. The lead walks down the stairs as she basks in the light, surrounded by blooming flowers. She’s ready for the future.

“I’m looking for someone who’s gonna change the world with me,” Michelle says in a voiceover. “I’m ready.”

Some Bachelor Nation fans might recognize Michelle’s comment because it’s what she told Matt when she first met him in episode 4. So one thing is clear — Michelle knows exactly what she’s looking for. But will the bachelorette’s final rose be her perfect match? We’ll have to wait and see.
