As of April Bachelorette, Katie Thurston has officially wrapped her season a week ahead of schedule. Thurston’s journey to find love had undoubtedly been a rocky one. A frontrunner in Matt James season, she instantly became a fan favorite when she greeted Matt with a vibrator in hand, showing off her comedic side. However, as the season progressed, these lighthearted moments were few and far between as accusations of bullying and toxicity were thrown around the house. Eventually, Katie was sent home after some drama unfolded between her and another woman in the house yet Katie never let that shake her from believing that love was still out there waiting for her. Now, as one of two of this season’s Bachelorettes, Katie is stepping up to the plate and letting everyone know just what it is she’s looking for.
In a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, former Bachelor Matt James took the time to sing Katie’s praises remarking on her strength and self-assuredness as traits that will make her a great Bachelorette. With the new season set to premiere next month Katie’s season offers a fresh look at love after the controversy of last season. While everything to come in Katie’s season remains a mystery one thing is for certain is that Katie is ready for love and has no problem with getting straight to the point when it comes to what she wants.
This season Katie will kick off her journey to find love in New Mexico, where new hosts Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will help guide Kate along the way. Luckily. Fans won’t have to wait much longer to witness Katie’s beautiful love story unfold as Season 17 of The Bachelorette will premiere on June 7th.
