Nayte quickly became one of Michelle’s frontrunners in The Bachelorette Season 18 premiere. The contestant won the Minnesota teacher’s first impression rose. And of course, this has some significance historically. Many past bachelorettes ended up engaged to their first impression rose winner in the finale. So all eyes are on Michelle and Nayte.

Meanwhile, The Bachelorette Season 18 has made it easy for viewers to watch the couple’s love story unfold onscreen. In the first four episodes, the ABC reality series always teased sweet and important moments between Nayte and Michelle. Now, the two will go on their first one-on-one in episode 5. And during the date, Nayte will meet Michelle’s best friends from home, which possibly means that the bachelorette is thinking about her contestant beyond The Bachelor bubble.

Now, it seems like Nayte and Michelle continue dating after their one-on-one date in The Bachelorette Season 18 Episode 5. It’s also likely the first impression rose winner makes it through to the finale, according to a new promo featuring Hometowns, Fantasy Suites, and the “ending you’ll never see coming.”

In the Twitter teaser, the ABC reality series hints that Nayte and Michelle get at least two dates together on the show. First, the two are seen together on a boat, which is likely from their one-on-one date with Michelle’s friends in Minnesota. 

Later. the bachelorette is seen rubbing clay on Nayte’s chest, which is confirmed by the contestant’s tattoos. Then the promo hints that the two are on their Fantasy Suite date, and Michelle says they are in Mexico. Meanwhile, the only other people who are shown in a similar setting are Brandon Jones and Joe Coleman. So it seems likely that Nayte gets pretty far in The Bachelorette 2021.
