During the “ATFR," Young told Acho, “When they first told me, I thought we were going to be Bachelorette at the same time. I was a little nervous, but once I found out it was two different seasons, I was here for it."
Thurston added, "I'm ready to find love, and not just the temporary kind... I've seen it work before, why can't it work for me?"
Both women appeared on Matt James’ season of “The Bachelor,” and Michelle made it all the way to the finale. Matt ultimately chose Rachael Kirkconnell over Michelle, but they have since broken up.
Former Bachelorettes Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe are already set to host Season 17 of “The Bachelorette.”
