THE Bachelorette’s promotional trailer revealed a number of clues about who Michelle Young will pick during season 18 of the dating show.
Contestants Peter, Casey, Daniel, and PJ are taught by Michelle, while Clayton says the basketball court is “not” his place in sports.
Pardeep, Spencer, and Chris G. are seen lined up behind the former Mizzou football player.
But there’s also apparently a farming date as The Bachelorette preview also shows Michelle driving Rodney around in a wheelbarrow as Martin looks on.
PJ, Alec, Clayton, Leroy, and Martin are also seen around a pool, while there’s also a flight school date that sees Peter, and Nayte walk towards this season’s leading lady.

WHO DOES MICHELLE YOUNG PICK ON THE BACHELORETTE?

“Had heard rumblings since the season ended but got the confirmation I needed the end of last week,” Steve said.
If you don’t care about spoilers, find out who Michelle picked here.
ADVICE FROM HER PARENTS
Michelle sought advice from her parents – whom she is very close with- before becoming The Bachelorette.
Her mom gave her little girl advice, insisting to her daughter: “You need to find someone like your dad. I mean it, he’s the best.”
“Whatever you decide, we trust you. We’re behind you 100%,” her dad said in a supportive message.
WHAT DID MICHELLE SAY DURING THE FIRST ROSE CEREMONY?
Michelle had a message for the men at the beginning, telling them: “Gentleman, I want to take one last minute to take this chance and be here with me tonight.”
“I know it’s not easy to put yourself out there and be vulnerable. I’m really excited about the connections we can form.”
“I’m going to follow my heart, trust my intuition and if you do not get a rose tonight, know that I appreciate you and wish you the best.”
WHAT DID THE PROMO TRAILER SHOW?
The Bachelorette’s promotional trailer revealed a number of clues about who Michelle Young will ultimately pick during season 18 of the show.
WHO IS JOE COLEMAN?
So he and Michelle have one major thing in common already: she’s also from Minnesota.
Michelle is a teacher in Edina, a suburb of the Twin Cities.
Another trait they share is their athleticism. Joe is a former Gophers basketball player and Michelle, also 28, also played the sport as a senior in high school.
BACHELORETTE 2021 FILMING, PART TWO
Steve revealed that for most of August 2021, Young’s season will be filmed at the Marquette Hotel in Minneapolis.
“Maybe this season we will see more public dates since they are staying in a major city,” Reality Steve wrote in his blog.
“Kinda like anytime this show goes to a US city, we usually always see dates happen. However, I don’t think that’s the last place they’ll be. I do think overnights and final rose ceremony will be in a different location based on the fact I’m hearing filming ends almost two weeks into September.”
WHERE IS THIS SEASON OF THE BACHELORETTE BEING FILMED?
While the exact location of the filming is unknown, Steve revealed that he does not believe that it will take place at La Quinta, where Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams’ season was filmed last year.
Part of this upcoming season will also be filmed in Minnesota.
