'The Bachelor' has been put under the lens for a lot of reasons. It appears as if it gave its audience yet another reason to criticize after hosting a Zoom call with Michelle Young's students. Children as young as fifth-graders asked Matt James one too many "inappropriate" questions in the February 23 episode. 

Prior to the hometown date, Michelle took Matt to meet her students, who she believes are a significant part of her life. However, Matt was rather taken aback after meeting the children, who had some of the toughest questions about their relationship, which Matt himself couldn't answer.

After introducing Matt to her students, Michelle asks "You have some questions?" Soon, the children begin to shower Matt with questions, with one of them asking if he has kissed his teacher. Another student asked Matt if he's Michelle's boyfriend. One more jumped right to the ultimate question by asking Matt if Michelle would get the final rose. 

Even though slightly baffled by the students' questions, Matt described his experience with Michelle's students as a pleasant one. However, the thought of young children interrogating two adults on a dating reality show hasn't served the viewers well. Many of them have expressed their disappointment with the show for involving children, while others are wondering if the show sought the parents' permission to showcase their children on national television.  

One tweeted, "As an educator, this moment with Michelle’s students is just so awkward. I don’t want my students knowing about my dating life! It’s none of their business. I want them to reach state standards instead! #thebachelor." Another asked, "Did the parents sign releases for this? Who’s tracking the Instagram growth of Michelle’s students? #TheBachelor." One expressed, "Michelle: These are some of my students... Me: These are the students whose parents signed off on them being broadcast on national TV! #TheBachelor #FireChrisHarrison." One tweeted, "kinda pissed at Michelle for introducing her students to a man she might not marry.... very weird intersection of job and personal life that’s pretty weird for children to be involved in #TheBachelor."
