[Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers about Brandon Jones and Michelle Young in The Bachelorette 2021.]
‘The Bachelorette’ star Brandon Jones shares a promise to Michelle Young on Instagram
In November 2021, Brandon shared a photo of himself receiving a rose from Michelle in The Bachelorette Season 18 Episode 4. Both reality stars appear to be smiling as they accept the next step in their relationship, which includes traveling to Michelle’s hometown in Minnesota for episode 5. Then in the caption, Brandon made a big promise to the fifth-grade teacher.
“I promise to never again make you feel unseen,” Brandon wrote on Instagram. “See you in Minnesota #bachelornation”
Why Brandon Jones’ Instagram post is important after ‘The Bachelorette’ Season 18 Episode 4
The significance behind Brandon’s Instagram post to Michelle can only be understood if you’ve watched episode 4 of The Bachelorette Season 18. In the new episode, Michelle felt unseen by her cast during a group date. All the men just wanted to hang out with each other, and no one seemed to come up to Michelle. Then at the end of the group date, the bachelorette left in tears.
When speaking with co-host Kaitlyn Bristowe, Michelle made it clear that she wasn’t seeking attention. Rather, the new bachelorette was frustrated and hurt because their actions made it seem like they didn’t want to genuinely get to know her. Then when Michelle was honest about her feelings with her cast, everyone made sure to reassure the lead. Brandon also admitted that he could’ve done more, and Michelle noted that he does make her feel special.
New ‘Bachelorette’ promos tease how far Brandon Jones gets on Michelle Young’s season
Now, will Brandon keep his promise to Michelle in The Bachelorette Season 18? Maybe. Filming is over, and many fans are hoping that the two end up together. That said, a few new promos have thrown out some mixed signals about the contestant.
In the trailer for The Bachelorette Season 18 Episode 5, Brandon cries, and it seems the teaser tries to indicate that the frontrunner will eventually become a villain. That said, some fans thought the edit was more fitting for Chris Sutton. Also, the latest promo suggests that Brandon will make it far on Michelle’s season.
Midway through the teaser on Twitter, Michelle and Brandon go horseback riding on a beach in Mexico. The final rose ceremony also seems to take place in a similar location. So at the very least, it seems possible Brandon makes it past Hometowns. But we’ll just have to watch what unfolds.
