Bachelorette star Michelle Young gave her final rose to Nayte Olukoya during the heartwarming season 18 finale, which also ended with the obligatory proposal.

The school teacher, 28, made her final decision after Nayte and his rival finalist Brandon Jones met her parents during the three-hour episode.

Although her parents were initially worried about Nayte’s true intentions, Michelle looked at the camera and said the 27-year-old sales executive was her ‘person’.

However, this didn’t stop both men from picking out a ring, but ultimately there would be only one proposal.

While sitting in the confessional, Michelle said: ‘I have two men and I’m in love with them both. They have given me everything that I’ve asked for and tomorrow is going to be the hardest decision I’ve ever made.’

In the end, it was Nayte who stole her heart, with Michelle sending Brandon home before accepting a proposal from the Texas native.

Season 18 had quite the shakeup as Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe replaced long-running host Chris Harrison on the hit dating game show

Chris stepped back from his role in the popular programme in February after he was criticised for defending contestant Rachael Kirkconnell when she was accused of racist behaviour.

Chris previously asked people to show her ‘compassion’ and claimed she was being ‘thrown to the wolves’ but he has since apologised.

The 49-year-old has said: ‘I have spent the last few days listening to the pain my words have caused, and I am deeply remorseful. My ignorance did damage to my friends, colleagues and strangers alike. I have no one to blame but myself for what I have said and the way I spoke.

‘I set standards for myself, and have not met them. I feel that with every fiber of my being. Now, just as I taught my children to stand up, and to own their actions, I will do the same.’

The Bachelorette is available to stream on hayu.
