The Daily Star, Oneonta, N.Y., Friday, October 15, 2021 20 By Dana Simpson TV Media Young and single: For the second time this year, St. Louis Park, Minnesota, native Mi- chelle Young is getting the Bachelor franchise treatment. First seen on Season 25 of "The Bachelor" alongside philan- thropist and former football player Matt James, Young is now leading her own season of "The Bachelorette." Don't miss the 18th season of "The Bachelorette" when it airs Tuesday, Oct. 19, on ABC. A 28-year-old school teacher from the American Midwest, Michelle Young finished as the runner-up contestant on Matt James' season of "The Bache- lor." Having caught his eye (de- spite being one of the season's late arrivals), it's clear that Young also caught the eye of Bachelor Nation and its fans. The former basketball player has been filming her season since July 30 of this year, and she's happy to have Season 17 alum and former co-contestant Katie Thurston to rely on. "I'm excited that I get to have somebody to bond over with this and share notes as we go," Young said of Thurston ahead of filming "The Bache- lorette," continuing, "I really do think that this process works. When you can set down all these outside distractions and really dive in, I think you can learn a lot about some- body. I'm just excited. I'm ready to get started." Also excited to get started are Young's 35 potential suit- ors, including one fellow bas- ketball fan and funnyman Spencer, 25, who exits the limo, passes Young a basketball and offers a clever, quippy innuen- do to break the ice. Among the others vying for her attention, love and affec- tion are Americans Trevor (26), Ryan (30), Rick (32), Rodney (29), Peter (26), P.J. (30), Pard- eep (30), Olumide (28), Mi- chael (30), L.T. (38), Joel (31), Jomarri (26), Leroy (27), Jack (30), Jamie (32), Eric (25), Gar- rett (33), Daniel (26), Edward (27), Casey (36), Clayton (28), Chris S. (28), Bryan (30), Brett (29), Alec (29), Brandons K. (29) and J. (26), fellow Minne- sotan Joe (28) and, of course, the aptly named Romeo (32). realtalk Michelle Young stars in Season 18 of "The Bachelorette" B/The Pine Shop 6x7.5 Oreck Vacuum Sales and Service, Bags & Belts for many other Brands Real Wood Furniture Finished & Unfinished.
