Michelle was a single mom and hairstylist -- who also worked as a model and actress on the side -- at the time she joined The Bachelor cast. She was best remembered for "hot" and seductive looks, being "in it to win it," and making catty comments on the show.
Michelle told Reality TV World in February 2011, "I was definitely there for the right reason... I don't know about the other girls, but I went on the show to find love. I made it very clear that if I felt there wasn't a connection with Brad, that I needed to go home, but I did feel a connection with Brad, and I felt like the connection was reciprocated."
"I felt like he felt the same way, and so absolutely I went for it. And I think if you don't, I think you're doing yourself a disservice. I think that's exactly why you should be there. You should be there to win it. That's what you want and you should feel like that's the purpose of the show," she continued.
