It was clear that Michelle and Joe knew each other in The Bachelorette Season 18 premiere. The 28-year-old teacher recognized her contestant, who is from the same hometown, after his limo entrance. Then Michelle explained that she slid into Joe’s DMs a few years before filming, and he ghosted her after a couple of messages. 

Now, Joe and Michelle are giving their love a second chance in The Bachelorette, and it really seems like their romance is starting to grow. The two will go on a one-on-one date in season 18 episode 5. Recently, ABC also released a new promo about Hometowns and Fantasy Suites, and it seems like Joe will make it pretty far. 

In The Bachelorette teaser, the contestant tells the bachelorette he’s “falling in love” with her. Michelle and Joe also kiss in what looks like a tropical setting, and the preview hints that Mexico is the filming location for the final rose ceremony. So it seems likely Joe makes it pretty far on Michelle’s season at the very least.

Now, some Bachelorette fans believe Michelle picks Joe because they saw them both at the Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys game on Oct. 31. Of course, the two are from Minnesota. So whether Joe and Michelle end up together or break up on the show, it’s not really surprising that they would attend the same event. And while some viewers think this is a clue they are still together, others believe the opposite. 

A Bachelorette fan on Reddit posted a photo of Joe and Michelle when the spotlight was turned on them during the football game. However, it was clear that the reality stars weren’t seated together. Joe’s defeated expression in the photo had some viewers questioning his relationship status with Michelle. A Bachelor Nation fan wrote:

Wow, he looks uncomfortable….That (and that they are both there separately – screams no communication, don’t think she would do that with a F1) doesn’t give me the vibes as if he and Michelle are on good terms now
