Michelle didn't join The Bachelor until after the third Rose Ceremony, but she appeared to make a quick and lasting impression on Matt. In fact, he took her on a one-on-one date the day after meeting her.
Matt could tell that Michelle embodies all of the qualities he's looking for in a future wife, and it didn't take long for Michelle to become smitten with Matt either.
"He is the person I want to spend the rest of my life with," Michelle told the cameras in recent episode. "He's the person I want to have a family with. Getting sent home at this point, my heart is going to be broken."
Michelle even told her family that she would say "yes" to an engagement with Matt if he were to ask for her hand in marriage right on the spot. She already calls Matt her "hubby" and jokes that he belongs to her.
When Matt and Michelle had a moment alone after her hometown date, Michelle shared, "I can say that I'm falling in love with you, and that makes me so excited but it's so scary. It's so genuine and so real."
