After appearing on The Bachelor earlier this year and finishing as the runner-up, Michelle Young is ready to fall in love and find the man of her dreams and we have all the details on how you can watch new episodes from season 18 of The Bachelorette from anywhere in the world.

During season 25 of The Bachelor, fans fell in love with Katie Thurston and Michelle Young who were both vying for the heart of 28-year-old Matt James. While Katie Thurston went on to be The Bachelorette in the show's last season, this time around Young will have her pick from 30 eligible bachelors.

Young grew up in Minnesota and went onto play Division I basketball at Bradley University before graduating with a degree in elementary education and going on to begin her career as an elementary school teacher. Despite entering The Bachelor during the third week of the competition, Young made it to the final two before being rejected by James in favor of fellow contestant Rachel Kirkconnell.

As was the case last season, former Bachelorettes Tyshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will return as co-hosts this season after taking over for longtime host of the show Chris Harrison last year. According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC is currently looking for a permanent host for the show who will likely take over the role beginning next year.

Although this season of The Bachelorette began filming at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, California, later episodes will move to Young's hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota from Hometown Dates. This season's overnight dates and final rose ceremony will take place in Punta de Mita, Mexico.

Whether you've been watching the show since it first debuted in 2003 or are a fan of Michelle Young from her time on The Bachelor, we'll show you exactly how to watch season 18 of The Bachelorette from anywhere in the world.
