'The Bachelorette' fans praise Michelle's students for spotting Martin's red flags
With four students in charge of planning the dates, Martin failed to make a positive impression
With the hometowns segment of 'The Bachelorette' right around the corner, the pressure is on. As the number of men keeps dwindling with each week, if they haven't stepped up their game, then they have most likely lost their shot with Michelle. But impressing her might not be the only thing on their mind right now, as Michelle had a few exciting guests this week.
For Michelle, her students are a big part of her life. This week, she was joined by four of her students, Luke, Ahmed, Jayleen and Kelsey. These kids spent time with the men and planned and picked who would go on dates with Michelle. And while Clayton, Rodney, Olu, and Natye did exceptionally well, Martin failed to impress a bunch of 5th graders.

With children all set to meet Michelle's men, Martin made a statement, saying that there are only two types of people in this world who tell the truth -- drunk people and children. And they came in hard with the truth bombs. As much as Martin tried to impress the kids, some of them weren't having it all. Kelsey even mentioned in her confessionals that she didn't like him, stating that he talks too much and wears too much cologne.
Fans agreed that Kelsey hit the nail on the head. "The girl who doesn't like Martin was raised well to sense the red flags! #thebachelorette #BacheloretteABC" tweeted a fan. "Absolutely all of us #bachelorette #BacheloretteABC #TheBacheloretteABC #TheBachelorette" added another. "michelle’s students with all the men, michelle’s students with martin #TheBachelorette #TheBacheloretteABC". "The kids having to listen to Martin's long ass story they don't care about #TheBachelorette #BacheloretteABC" added another.
While Martin failed to impress the kids, a few of the guys did exceptionally well. Kelsey believed that Nayte would make a good match for Michelle, seeing that he is tall and can probably play basketball with Michelle (even though fans have seen he is not the best at it!). She and Jayleen also got along well with Olu, who told them he wants a big African wedding, to which Jayleen asked if she could be invited. They were all praises for how nice he was. Even Rodney scored some brownie points, as he made up a secret handshake with Ahmed. And finally, Clayton proved to be a cut above the rest, when he built the kids a pillow fort. Luke noted that he had big muscles which were perfect for carrying groceries. Fans found the kids absolutely adorable.
"Rodney is truly the most gentle soul, seeing the way he interacted with Ahmed was far too adorable #TheBachelorette" tweeted a fan. "Rodney is truly the most gentle soul, seeing the way he interacted with Ahmed was far too adorable #TheBachelorette" added another. "Love that the lil guy knows what big muscles are for (carrying groceries) #TheBachelorette" tweeted a fan. "I don't know anything about Clayton, but he seemed wonderful with these kids Green flag energy #TheBachelorette" noted another.
