Who Is Nayte Olukoya? 5 Things to Know About Michelle’s ‘Bachelorette’ Suitor
Nayte Olukoya is one of the men competing for Michelle Young’s heart on season 18 of The Bachelorette — but will he receive her final rose? The 27-year-old sales executive, whose full name is Tundé Nayte Olukoya, will meet 28-year-old Michelle during the October 19 premiere — and based on teasers for the season, he is sure to sweep her off her feet. According to Nayte’s ABC bio, he’s “hard not to notice” based on his 6-foot, eight-inch “Adonis” stature. His dream woman is “outgoing, spontaneous and has enough swagger of her own to keep up with him.” He’s hoping to find someone that will be his “teammate for life,” which could be Michelle. “He’s looking for a connection filled with heat and for someone who will be just as passionate about him as he is about her,” the bio continues. “[He’s] confident that Michelle may just be the one he’s been waiting for.” In an ABC trailer released on October 5, it is clear that Nayte and Michelle’s chemistry is hot, but as one of the season’s apparent front-runners, not everyone in the mansion is a fan of the Texas resident. “Nayte is a player,” one contestant says in the clip as scenes of him kissing the teacher play in the background. Clayton Echard then confronts Nayte, saying, “You’re an actor and you’ve come on a reality TV show,” to which he replies, “What are you talking about?” At one point in the trailer, Nayte breaks down and cries and so do a few other contestants. Despite the drama hinted at in the teaser, Nayte revealed via his Instagram on Sunday, October 17, that he is ready to watch his journey play out on screen. “Well, I mean, just look at her ,” he captioned a series of photos with Michelle from night one of the new season, including one of them holding hands.

Crime Beat: Arlene Westervelt – murder or misadventure?
It’s been five years since a B.C. woman died during a day of picnicking and canoeing with her husband, but the story around her death continues to unfold. Many more details of the case are being revealed through recently filed civil court documents. Arlene Westervelt, a 56-year-old nurse, spent June 26, 2016, with her husband Bert Westervelt in their canoe on Okanagan Lake. Bert claimed the couple were paddling back to their vehicle when the boat tipped and his wife disappeared.

Probably the most famous Prada Store, which never opens
If a new branch of a fashion chain opens somewhere, does not normally provide headlines. Not at all on TravelBook. But this version of a Prada Store has it in itself: because he stands in the middle of the desert. © Getty Images Some vacationers driving through the US bores to the endless highways. Kilometerslang the always equal landscape passes, the only thing to see on the street are petrol stations and motels.
"When I found out her man was Dolph I fanned tf out," Palmer wrote. "To hear this news breaks my heart. The way folks moving these days seems unreal. Instead of being inspired or uplifted by someone's success there is nothing but jealousy and envy and this hurts me esp for our community. Everybody is trying to make it and is carrying other people on their back when they get wherever they're trying to go. When this happens you don't just take away that life but you hurt a million other people they were carrying."
She continued: "I'm sorry for your loss Mia and I'm sorry we lost you Dolph. Sending the most love I can conjure to these beautiful children that now have to grow up without their father. Rest in everlasting peace my brother."
