'The Bachelorette' Season 18: Fans troll Ryan Fox over playbook, question his motive
With Season 18 of 'The Bachelorette' finally here, everyone is excited to see Michelle Young find the man of her dreams. The teacher from Minnesota is the whole package, smarty, sporty, funny and charming. Now, it's time to see if the 30 men out to win her heart have what it takes to impress her.
So far, there have been some interesting men trying to win Michelle over. While some made smooth entrances and others seem to have prior connections, a few rely on their 'The Bachelorette' expertise. It looks like one of Michelle's men has taken a page of out Season 17's Hunter Montgomery when it comes to playing the game.

With hosts Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams doing a quick room check, hilarity ensued at the start of the season. While they went on a room raid, fans thought it was needed, seeing that everyone wanted to 'protect' Michelle. "Michelle is a literal goddess we are so lucky to be able to look at her every week #TheBachelorette" tweeted a fan. "At first I was wondering what in the Room Raiders hell was going on with this segment..Now we have unearthed the clout chaser. #TheBachelorette" added another. "I'm all for Kaitlyn and Tayshia doing their due diligence. Michelle must be protected at all costs. It's better to know now rather than later! #TheBachelorette" pointed out a fan.

However, while visiting Ryan's room, a 30-year-old Environmental Consultant from San Jose, they made a startling discovery -- Ryan had a whole playbook, complete with detailed research of the past seasons. They found it a bit alarming, seeing that it came off as if Ryan had an ulterior motive that went beyond falling in love with Michelle. However, fans interacted interestingly with the discovery. Seeing that Ryan and all his plotting and planning was now exposed, fans were quick to jump on the meme wagon.
"Don't worry Ry there are plenty of fish in the sea… @BacheloretteABC #Bachelorette #BachelorNation" tweeted a fan. "Brendan and Pieper: we made a secret plan to get on paradise for a trip & followers. Ryan: hold my beer #TheBachelorette #Bachelorette" added another. "The producers after planting that folder in farm guy's luggage: #TheBachelorette #BachelorNation" joked another.
While his notes were meticulous, covering things like getting more screentime, fans were more concerned with his spelling errors and art skills. The roasting was relentless and hilarious. "I know you f**king lying. Not only is Ryan here for clout, he didn't even spell bachelorette right lmao and shorty a whole teacher. I'm crying #Bachelorette" laughed another. "This notebook is jsut so amazing. * chef's kiss* #TheBachelorette" joked a user. "The dude cant spell Bachelorette and he thinks he has a chance with a TEACHER?? #TheBachelorette" tweeted a fan.
It looks like Ryan got screen time, but not the kind he was looking for. With Michelle finding out about Ryan's notes, she called it a red flag and asked him to leave the show, as she doubted his intentions
