Rodney Mathews is the next lucky guy to get a one-on-one date with Michelle Young on the Nov. 2 episode of The Bachelorette. A preview for the episode shows Rodney being tasked with stripping naked and running down the stairs while Michelle yells, “This is our journey!” during a game of Truth or Dare.

“The date has been really fun up until this point,” Rodney says. “To add salt to the wound, I have my boys watching, Kaitlyn and Tayshia have their heads out. It’s pretty bad when everyone sees you in your birthday suit and it’s not even your birthday. It’s pretty rough.” Learn more about Rodney below!
