Olukoya proposed to Young during the season finale of 'The Bachelorette'
Michelle Young and Nayte Olukoya became the first "Bachelorette" couple to receive a $200,000 check to put towards a down payment on a home Tuesday night following the show's finale.
Host and former "Bachelorette" star Kaitlyn Bristowe presented the gift to Young and Olukoya during their first appearance as a couple on "After The Final Rose." Olukoya proposed to Young two months ago during the filming of the finale of the "Bachelorette."
The couple admitted to Bristowe that they have begun house hunting after deciding Olukoya would make a permanent move from Texas to Minnesota, where Young lives.
"The Zillow notifications are crazy!" Olukoya told Bristowe.
