The couple seemed to have it all—chemistry, mutual respect, and even financial support from ABC in the form of a $200,000 check for a downpayment on a house. Nayte even made plans to move to Minnesota, aligning his future with Michelle’s. ABC’s official Bachelorette page has all their romantic moments documented for Bachelor Nation fans who want to relive the magic.
However, about six months post-engagement, the two announced their split on social media. Despite attempts to maintain a friendly relationship, it quickly became apparent that things had soured between them.
