Now, did the Jimmy Kimmel Live host correctly guess the bachelorette’s final pick and start a new streak? Here’s what we know, including spoilers.

[Spoiler alert: This article contains potential spoilers about Michelle Young’s final pick in The Bachelorette Season 18 finale.]

Jimmy Kimmel theorizes who wins Michelle Young’s heart in ‘The Bachelorette’ Season 18 finale

Typically, Kimmel makes his Bachelor or Bachelorette winner prediction after the first episode. But Michelle didn’t appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live until Nov. 23, which was right after she picked her final four men — Brandon Jones, Rodney Mathews, Nayte Olukoya, and Joe Coleman. Then at the end of the segment, Kimmel told the current bachelorette who his wife thinks will win season 18.

“She believes you’re gonna wind up with Nayte, who was the guy you gave the first impression rose to,” Kimmel said. “A lot of the first impression rose [winners] turn out to be the guy that you wind up together with and ultimately break up with in a very public way.”

Now, it seems like Kimmel’s prediction about who wins Michelle’s Bachelorette season could come true. But hopefully, without the “very public” breakup down the line. According to Reality Steve’s spoilers, Michelle picks Nayte in the finale. The Bachelor Nation blogger also claimed that the two are still engaged.

Now, this wouldn’t be the first time Kimmel got the winner of The Bachelor franchise right. The late-night host actually had quite the streak going in the past. Kimmel predicted Becca Kufrin as Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s final rose, Garrett Yrigoyen as Kufrin’s choice, Cassie Randolph as Colton Underwood’s winner, Jed Wyatt as Hannah Brown’s pick, and Hannah Ann Sluss as Peter Weber’s future fiancée, and Rachael Kirkconnell as the last one standing on Matt James’ season

However, Kimmel incorrectly guessed the last two seasons of The Bachelorette. The host predicted Ben Smith as Tayshia Adams’ winner. But Adams picked Zac Clark. Then Kimmel theorized that Katie Thurston would choose Greg Grippo, and she got engaged to Blake Moynes in her finale.

For now, Bachelor Nation fans will have to wait and see whether Kimmel’s prediction and Reality Steve’s spoilers come true in Michelle’s Bachelorette finale. But whatever happens next, the current lead recently told People she is “very happy” with her experience on the show.

“I feel like I make the right decision in the end,” Michelle said.
