NEW Bachelorette Michelle Young has given fans a sneak peek of her upcoming season as filming kicks off.
Michelle, 28, has posed for a picture after slipping into a crop top and leggings and sitting on bleachers in a basketball court.
The elementary school teacher – who was runner-up on Matt James' season of The Bachelor – played basketball at Bradley University from 2011 to 2015, according to US Weekly.
Teasing her followers, Michelle tweeted: "On location with our #TheBachelorette."
Fans have been quick to reply and have shared their excitement at the forthcoming episodes.
One replied: "I'm so excited for Michelle, she deserves the best! I'll be watching this season."
Another said: "Can’t wait to watch her journey!!! I really hope they found good genuine MEN, not boys."
A third wrote: "YAAAASSSS!! SO EXCITED!!!"
WORTH THE WAIT
Michelle was runner-up to final rose winner Rachael Kirkconnell during Matt's season.
And with fellow Bachelor hopeful Katie Thurston's season coming to an end, Michelle is up next.
Her Bachelorette season is expected to start this fall and spoiler king Reality Steve claimed that viewers could expect to watch "around 1st or 2nd week of October".
He has also hinted that Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will return to host Michelle's upcoming season.
The longtime Bachelor spoiler source tweeted last month: “Kaitlyn and Tayshia will be returning to cohost Michelle’s season of the ‘Bachelorette’ when it begins filming."
He has since revealed the names of the 35 single men vying to compete for Michelle's heart.
TAKING THE LEAD
Michelle had joined Matt James' season on an episode that aired on January 25.
She was one of five women to get added to the show after filming commenced, which is why she did not appear in the original contestant line-up.
The green-eyed beautiy made it to the finale of Matt's season, but ended as his runner-up.
At the time, ABC stated: "As a partner, she describes herself as loyal, compassionate and supportive, and shows love through acts of service.
"Her dream man is confident but not cocky and will look at her as his equal in all things.
"Michelle has big dreams for the future and says she wants a man by her side that is supportive and driven to make the world a better place."
