8. And finally, *do* be upfront like Michelle
Based on the premiere, it’s clear that Young isn’t one to avoid confrontation. After Joe’s arrival, she sits down with him and candidly asks for an explanation. Although Joe reveals that he wasn’t ready for a relationship at that time, Young doesn’t tiptoe around the situation. She thanks him for coming and then encourages him to step it up if he wants to regain her trust.
This behavior is different from past Bachelorettes, who typically smile, nod and excuse themselves before revealing their true feelings to the producers. That’s not the case with Young, and it’s extremely refreshing.
The Bachelorette airs on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
