It appears that the upcoming season of The Bachelorette gets off to a dramatic start.
"You're obviously my favorite teacher," one suitor, dressed in an apple costume for the 28-year-old school teacher, says in the clip. "I'm just trying to be the apple of your eye."
"Oh, I love it," replies Michelle, 28.
But it soon becomes clear that one of Michelle's prospects isn't who he claimed to be.
"Oh my God," Michelle reacts.
"Someone is planning out their every move," Tayshia adds as the camera pans to a number of folders filled with papers.
"Trust was broken," one of the new suitors says to the larger group, while another comments, "It seems like there's a rat in our midst."
Michelle was announced alongside Katie Thurston as the franchise's new Bachelorettes in March. Katie's journey to finding love, which aired this summer, concluded with her engagement to finalist Blake Moynes.
Michelle, meanwhile, has previously said she's "ready" to step into the role.
"I really do think this process works," she said during The Bachelor's After the Final Rose special in March. "When you get to set down all the outside distractions and really dive in, I think you can learn a lot about somebody. I'm just excited. I'm ready to get started."
The Bachelorette premieres Oct. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
