Michelle Young has accepted and given out so many roses throughout her time on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” and now she has been given the chance to accept a rose in Bachelor Nation once more!
The 28-year-old former ‘Bachelorette’, who got engaged to her final pick Nayte Olukoya last Fall, has joined fellow former ‘Bachelorette’ Becca Kufrin as a host of Bachelor Nation’s official podcast, “Bachelor Happy Hour!”
“Bachelor Happy Hour” was formerly hosted by Kufrin and Rachel Lindsay. Lindsay’s Bachelor Nation contract ended in 2021, as did her time as co-host of “Bachelor Happy Hour.”
Michelle Young Joins “Bachelor Happy Hour!”
After a series of guest co-hosts, Young will officially fill the empty seat next to Kufrin as she begins her tenure as co-host!
Young is ready to accept a hypothetical hosting rose and jump into the position.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Young made a statement about joining the podcast once the news had dropped. She said, “Having found love on ‘The Bachelorette’ I’m excited to share my perspective and keep it real for the passionate fans of Bachelor Nation. I can’t wait to kick it with Becca each week as we dive into the twists and turns of these upcoming seasons!”
What Michelle Has To Say
Kufrin and Young wasted no time embracing their new roles as co-hosts, in their first interview together.
When Kufrin asked how Young was feeling about her new role as a podcast host as opposed to her past experiences of being on the opposite side of the mic as an interview subject.
Young shared, “I think I’m going to enjoy being in this position more than being in the hot seat. I get to ask the questions!”
Kufrin is excited for her friend to join her as a host, too! She told Young, “I love that I have a former Bachelorette with me because you can give so much more insight and just, advice, and knowledge to the contestants and other leads coming through…”
Young also expressed her excitement to be able to explore Bachelor Nation shows in a more objective stance.
She explained, “[I’m excited to] be able to watch the show and not be on the show, and not have to watch myself on the screen anymore,” before adding, “but to actually dive into all these other contestants, [and] really get to talk to them, and really get to know them.”
Young is also preparing to share what she has learned from her time in Bachelor Nation as both a ‘Bachelorette’ lead and a ‘Bachelor’ contestant.
“Like you said, being a ‘Bachelorette,’ we’ve been in every single role… It’s going to be fun. I’m really looking forward to it.”
Where Are Michelle And Nayte Now?
The latest couple to get engaged on “The Bachelorette” have kept a relatively low profile, but Young and Olukoya are very much together and are happily navigating their post-‘Bachelorette’ lives together!
According to Us Weekly, the couple is still figuring out where they are going to settle down.
When it comes to picking out their perfect place for their nest, Olukoya said, “We’re trying to be as smart as possible. We’re looking at different options. We’re definitely feeling it all out.”
Perhaps we’ll get to hear an update or two about their relationship from Michelle on “Bachelor Happy Hour!”
