In this clip from Monday night's The Bachelor, Michelle has a talk with her mother about what she's feeling for Matt, and decides to go for broke and drop the L-word to him.
It's generally frowned upon for the Bachelors to return that particular sentiment verbally, but Michelle thinks the response she did get was proof enough that she's on the right track to win.
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8:00 PM ET on ABC.
