Many people wondered why Michelle could not have been the lead of season 17. Reality Steve offered an explanation in a post writing; “The reason is that Michelle did not want to leave her class again to start filming in a few weeks (meaning she’d miss most of the remainder of her school year), hence the reason she is getting her own season this summer when she’s out of school.”
