While Michelle’s Bachelorette season finale is just around the corner, there’s still plenty of drama coming up during Fantasy Suites tonight. Ahead of the Dec. 14 episode, ABC dropped spoilers confirming Michelle and her top three will head to Mexico for the overnight dates. The network also shared that Nayte, Joe, and Brandon will “push their boundaries” with Michelle, and they’ll even surprise themselves with their actions. 

Meanwhile, ABC’s synopsis of week 8 of The Bachelorette Season 18 revealed Michelle will question whether she’s “in love” with all three men. However, she will go into the next rose ceremony with “only two roses and one heartbreaking decision.”

That said, a new promo for tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette unveils a “shocking twist” coming up. In the clip, Michelle confirms she has “fallen in love” with Nayte, Brandon, and Joe.

Suddenly, things start to get dramatic. Co-host Tayshia Adams tells the cast to say whatever they need to say to Michelle. Then in the middle of the rose ceremony, Brandon asks the bachelorette to talk, and Nayte suggests his co-star is “feeling desperate.”

The Bachelorette teaser ends with Michelle crying by herself outside of the rose ceremony. She knows what she has to do next.

“I have to send him home,” she says in a voiceover.

Now, is Michelle simply realizing that she has to narrow down her final three or has something changed because of Brandon’s sidebar chat during the rose ceremony? Bachelor Nation fans will have to wait and see. But whatever happens in The Bachelorette tonight, it seems Michelle has a big decision to make when it comes to her final two picks. Stay tuned.
