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.
“I was caught off-guard a little bit by the fact that I pretty much had to call the guys over,” she expressed to the cameras. “I’m upset. Now that the boys are going to be competing against each other instead of making small moments with me during the group date.”
The Bradley University alum later toldat how hurt she felt by their lack of effort in their relationships with her.
“I always said, and as much as I wish I would’ve left today’s group date feeling excited and great, that honestly wasn’t the case,” Michelle explained. “Last week during the poetry date, you heard me read a poem about not being seen. I was oftentimes the only person of color in my classroom. I wasn’t asked on dates. And if I’m being completely honest with you, I feel like I’m putting in so much effort to make small moments with you guys, but I don’t necessarily feel like that’s being reciprocated. And that doesn’t mean that I need these massive romantic gifts or gestures, I honestly just want, like, a ‘hello’ during the date.”
