After the 'hometowns' segment on Season 18 of 'The Bachelorette' is now down to the final three men. And as the men enter the fantasy suites segment of the show, the pressure is starting to pile on. While they are concerned about their own connections with Michelle, they can't help but worry about her relationship with the other men.

So far, Michelle has dealt with plenty of drama. Thanks to Ryan Fox, Jamie Skaar, Chris Sutton, and finally Martin Gelbspan, she almost put her walls back up. But her connections with Brandon Jones, Joe Coleman and Natye Olukoya showed her that love is real.

'The Bachelorette' Fan Review: Viewers feel Brandon Jones might be 'sent home'

After setting out on dates with Brandon and Joe, it was finally Nayte's turn. Joe and Brandon seemed to find it odd that he was not worried about being the last in line, as they expressed how they would've felt, had they been last in line. Nayte however, didn't seem to mind at all and by the way Michelle was excited to be with him, it was clear as day that he had no reason to be either. The couple went on a sailing date together and genuinely seemed to enjoy each other's company and the fans picked up on it too. 
"Bro the way she talks about Nayte it is SO OBVIOUS she wants to pick him. #TheBachelorette" tweeted a fan. "it's a wrap. not even a contest. nayte has this in the bag. everyone else should just go home now. #thebachelorette" added another. "Well she just called Nayte her soulmate so we can wrap this up tonight. No need to wait til next week! #TheBachelorette" tweeted a fan. 




Apart from having fun together, the couple also couldn't seem to keep their hands off each other. While Michelle has had chemistry with Joe and Brandon, both of them pale in comparison to her chemistry with Nayte, the fact that fans picked up on instantly. 
"Chile Michelle want that African PIPE Sis cant keep her hands & mouth off that man I think they probably said 4 sentences to each other thus far #TheBachelorette" added a fan. "I feel butterflies every time Nayte talks and he's not even talking to ME  #TheBachelorette #bachelorette" added another. "
you see nayte and michelle? now THATS chemistry baby. observe it, learn it, and let it sit bc that is too two potential. #TheBacheloretteABC #thebachelorette" tweeted a fan. 




Towards the end of the date, Michelle asked Nayte the real questions, pointing out that falling in love, being in love and getting engaged are all very different things. For Michelle, her biggest concern was that she might be more into Nayte than he is into her. However, he quickly reassured her that he was feeling the same way and could certainly see a future with her. So it came as no surprise that Nayte bagged the first rose of the night. 

What do you think? Will Michelle and Nayte be the endgame? Do you think he's in it for the right reasons? Sound off below!
