    Michael is in Chattanooga, TN. He does blow in a bar on Market St.

    This guy is the only person I have ever seen say “yes” so quickly. As soon as JVV did “the speech”, Michael didn’t even let his family have a voice. I don’t know if Candy would have done the same, she is pretty intent on letting the family articulate their feelings for their own sake. I could actually relate to Michael in a few ways, and I wonder how he’s doing.

    Just watched his episode and had to look him up. I wonder how he’s doing. I thought he was so handsome in his episode. Also made me laugh a few times. I could relate to so much of what he said. I hope he’s doing better

    Michael wasn’t in Season 2…He was in Season 1 on the Brooks episode

    Does anyone have any updates on Michael? He was so intelligent and articulate. I loved hearing his voice. He’s handsome as well. I really hope he found recovery.

      He did not. Multiple arrests and charges since the airing.

        Aw that’s such a shame… I agree he sounded very intelligent and witty, and was attractive indeed. I hope for him he gets better!
