It’s rare that that promo material would focus so heavily on one of the contestants — especially one that is about to be sent home — rather than the actual lead of the season. The promo suggests that Michelle Young has a breakup with Clayton Echard. Young is seen reading the contents of a message to Echard. I have trouble believing Young — who has shown unwavering integrity, as well as the ability to face hard conversations head-on — would break up with any one of her men with a note. What is Young referring to? “the moment that changes everything”In there?
Either the video is false (The BacheloretteAre editors being misleading? NO!Michelle Young was asked by producers to write the note to Clayton Echard to make him a more sympathetic lead in Season 26. But he doesn’t really require a lot of assistance. Echard has seemed like a likable — if somewhat unremarkable — guy so far on The Bachelorette. He’s a fun-loving former football player, he’s close with his family, and he hasn’t gotten involved in any of the house drama. I don’t think producers need to make a villain of Young in any way to get people on board with Echard.
