After appearing in the landmark 25th season of The Bachelor, Katie Thurston emerged as a leading voice, who repeatedly stood up against bullying and negativity in the house; and women all over America applauded her for speaking up for what she believes. The 30-year-old Washington native became an instant fan favorite for her memorable arrival on night one where she introduced herself to Matt, light-up vibrator in tow. Unapologetically herself, Katie is adventurous, daring and ready for a man with whom she can build a life. A marketing manager with an innate social media savvy and humorous outlook on life, she is a witty storyteller who wants a man that will laugh along with her and is ready to step into the spotlight for her own love story to be told.”

What do you think? Are you planning to watch the new season of The Bachelorette on ABC?
Will not watch without Chris Harrison
Really ….I wish you would put REAL people on this show , instead of high schoolers . Always crying , accruing ….it gets old !!!! It’s like the people on have never seen an episode . You know how it will go . What do you think I’m going to do?
It will be interesting to see what happens with the ratings. I have watched every season. I won’t be watching this season. I would guess they will lose a number of dedicated fans of the show.
Never watched it and never will
Absolutely not, after the dust up BS with Chris Harrison for not doing anything or thinking what he said was right and getting booted. Take your liberal network tv show and stick it in your ass.
