The Bachelorette’s Michelle Young addresses instance in which she wasn’t wearing her engagement ring to fiancé Nayte Olukoya

The Bachelorette’s Michelle Young took to Instagram Stories on Monday to address a clip in which she was not donning her engagement ring from fiancé Nayte Olukoya, which some incorrectly perceived as an indicator the relationship was in turmoil.

The Minnesota native, 28, clarified that while she doesn’t normally ‘address these types of things,’ she received such a large amount of feedback, she felt compelled to make clear what had happened.

‘There is a video circulating of me on a rooftop this weekend and I’m not wearing my engagement ring,’ Young said. ‘And what I will have to say is to the person who is paying close enough attention to catch that moment, you also had to be paying close enough attention to see one of my friends briefly remove my engagement ring to try it on and then place it back on my finger.’

The grade school teacher, who appeared on The Bachelorette’s 18th season, said that ‘videoing somebody without them knowing is creepy’ and is ‘not cool.’

She added, ‘Just a friendly reminder that Nayte and I, we are human beings – not a zoo exhibit.’

Olukoya, 27, who proposed to Young on the December 2021 finale of the ABC reality romance, appeared in a TikTok clip on Sunday in which he joked about how ‘90% of [his] DMs’ are people asking where Young is.

Speaking with People following the engagement, Young said that she falls ‘more in love every day’ with the Austin, Texas native.

‘I was fortunate enough to grow up in a family with a healthy marriage and I thought, I’m not going to give up until I have that,’ she said. ‘He’s my person. And I didn’t know I could love at this level.’

Olukoya, a sales executive, opened up about he felt his proposal to Young ‘was the best-case scenario, but it was also terrifying.

‘I had a conversation with Michelle and I was like, “I want you to know I’m scared,”‘ he said. ‘But at the end of the day, I’ve never been so aligned with how I feel about somebody. When I closed my eyes and thought about the future, I saw her next to me.

‘So I was very confident and comfortable to get down on one knee. And I’m so glad she said yes!’
