The new bachelorette also complimented Rick’s features. 

“He has the most beautiful dark eyelashes combined with these green eyes,” Michelle said of Rick. “So that’s what you were seeing. Rick has the eyelashes that every woman wished she had.”

Michelle’s compliment about Rick may not come as a surprise to some Bachelorette fans. The two hit it off in the first few episodes of season 18. Following the premiere, Michelle said that Rick “really kinda won” night one with his fun entrance when speaking on the Almost Famous podcast.

“He made me laugh,” Michelle said. “I mean, he really kinda won, if you think about it. It was memorable. It really was.”

Meanwhile, Bachelor Nation fans watched as Michelle and Rick continued to connect on group dates and cocktail parties. The bachelorette also trusted Rick when he refuted Jamie Skaar’s claims in episode 2. So where are Rick and Michelle headed next? A one-on-one date is in their future.

As always, Bachelorette fans will have to tune in to watch how Michelle and Rick’s romance unfolds. But it seems the two share the second one-on-one date in episode 4 and experience a performance by music artist Andy Grammer. That said, it doesn’t look like the reality stars will end up together on ABC series.

Over the past few months, Bachelor Nation blogger Reality Steve dropped major spoilers about Michelle’s journey. The spoiler king revealed three out of four men from the bachelorette’s top four. Reality Steve also claimed Michelle’s winner in the finale. But the blogger never mentioned Rick. So it seems more likely that Michelle and Rick are not together after The Bachelorette

Whatever happens between Michelle and Rick in The Bachelorette Season 18, we’re hoping both parties are happier than ever now. But Rick might’ve dropped a clue on Instagram hinting that he still views Michelle in a positive light.

“Best Bachelorette ever, I think so,” Rick wrote.

The Bachelorette Season 18 airs Tuesday nights on ABC.
