Michelle Young’s potential contestants for ‘The Bachelorette’ have been released

It looks like fans can finally get a glimpse of who might join Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette. According to Entertainment Tonight, there are 35 men on the docket to make it to the first night. According to Reality Steve’s Twitter, the men range from software engineers to fathers to brand ambassadors to NFL players. It looks like the finale 25 to actually meet Michelle will come with a wealth of life experience and authenticity, which is exactly what she wants.

Michelle’s made it known she’s ready to find love and settle down, too. While on The Bachelor, she formed a strong connection with Matt — but Matt felt as if they didn’t have the romantic spark he craved. She admitted she was a “little nervous” regarding the prospect of becoming the next lead. But once she found out Katie Thurston, her fellow contestant from Matt’s season, would also get a season, she felt better.

“Once I found out it was two different seasons, I was here for it,” she explained during the After the Final Rose ceremony.

Reality Steve says this contestant could be an ‘early frontrunner’

Looking at the lineup of potential contestants for Michelle’s season of The Bachelorette, Reality Steve is already making predictions. He took a look at the potential suitors’ Instagrams and found out what he could about them after ABC released the official cast listing. And he seems to think one of the men is is perfect match.

“Joe Coleman, 28, Minneapolis, Minnesota. … Former 2011 Mr. Minnesota Basketball,” Reality Steve tweeted. “Played at the University of Minnesota. He’s gotta be an early frontrunner, right? Lives where Michelle lives and played college basketball like she did. Already rumors they possibly know each other.”

It looks like Joe set his Instagram to private as well, though he has Kanye West lyrics on his Instagram profile. We’ll be curious to hear more about them — and see if his Instagram goes public prior to the start of the season.
