Who Is Nayte Olukoya? 5 Things to Know About Michelle’s ‘Bachelorette’ Suitor
Nayte Olukoya is one of the men competing for Michelle Young’s heart on season 18 of The Bachelorette — but will he receive her final rose? The 27-year-old sales executive, whose full name is Tundé Nayte Olukoya, will meet 28-year-old Michelle during the October 19 premiere — and based on teasers for the season, he is sure to sweep her off her feet. According to Nayte’s ABC bio, he’s “hard not to notice” based on his 6-foot, eight-inch “Adonis” stature. His dream woman is “outgoing, spontaneous and has enough swagger of her own to keep up with him.” He’s hoping to find someone that will be his “teammate for life,” which could be Michelle. “He’s looking for a connection filled with heat and for someone who will be just as passionate about him as he is about her,” the bio continues. “[He’s] confident that Michelle may just be the one he’s been waiting for.” In an ABC trailer released on October 5, it is clear that Nayte and Michelle’s chemistry is hot, but as one of the season’s apparent front-runners, not everyone in the mansion is a fan of the Texas resident. “Nayte is a player,” one contestant says in the clip as scenes of him kissing the teacher play in the background. Clayton Echard then confronts Nayte, saying, “You’re an actor and you’ve come on a reality TV show,” to which he replies, “What are you talking about?” At one point in the trailer, Nayte breaks down and cries and so do a few other contestants. Despite the drama hinted at in the teaser, Nayte revealed via his Instagram on Sunday, October 17, that he is ready to watch his journey play out on screen. “Well, I mean, just look at her ,” he captioned a series of photos with Michelle from night one of the new season, including one of them holding hands.
Brittany began dating Ryan in February 2020 andin June. After watching the drama play out on Tuesday night, Brittany wasn’t surprised Ryan was sent packing.
“I think Michelle eliminated him because she only wanted people who are genuine and there for the right reasons,” Brittany told Us. “And based off of what she found she did not feel that Ryan fit that mold.”
She was, however, “shocked” to see her former flamebecause it seemed so far out of his comfort zone.
“He usually doesn’t have much to say unless someone is actively trying to have a conversation with him,” Brittany explained, noting that the way Ryan “defended himself” about his notes was behavior she recognized.
When Michelle combed through Ryan’s folders, he claimed that the information was given to him by a “friend’s wife” and that he’d never seen “more than two hours” of The Bachelorette. In 2020, however, he was selected to take part in Bachelor Live On Stage, hinting that he might bethan he let on.

“He didn’t talk about wanting to [be on the show], necessarily,” Brittany recalled on Wednesday. “He did the Bachelor Live On Stage before we met and he did talk about how he passed up offers to be on The Bachelorette because of our relationship. We watched maybe an episode or two together, but it wasn’t frequent.”
Ryan, for his part, has takenin stride. After the premiere, he poked fun at his documents in an Instagram video, teasing, “Some morning light reading #bachelorette #bachelornation #notesboy.”
