During week five of The Bachelorette, Michelle and the guys head to her hometown in Edina, Minn. In an exclusive sneak peek video, Michelle chooses Joe to take on a one-on-one date to play basketball at her former high school, which is the perfect choice considering his bio on ABC's website says "basketball was his first true love."
"This is like a really good moment for me and Michelle, learning more about her, her past experiences," Joe gushes in the clip. "My feelings for Michelle continue to grow and each time I see her things get better and better, they get easier, I feel more at home."
It's clear that Joe has feelings for Michelle, and those feelings are mutual. "I feel like Joe would've been my crush in high school," Michelle admits. "Because he played basketball, he has a good head on his shoulders and he's good looking."
We think Joe would've been our crush in high school (and now) too.
And it looks like this 28-year-old fifth grade teacher is about to teach Joe a thing or two. During their game Michelle says, "This isn't about a girl beating you at this point, this is about a girl in a dress beating you."
Come on Joe, get your head in the game.
To make this connection even cuter, Michelle and Joe are both from Minnesota and both played D1 basketball in college.
It seems like Joe's odds of getting a rose on the date are pretty high as Michelle says, "He and I just have this magnetic energy between us and like, that makes me feel very special."
His odds of getting a basket? That's another story.
Week five of The Bachelorette premieres on Tuesday, November 16 on ABC.
