Former lead of The Bachelorette, Katie Thurston has recently revealed some shocking secrets about the men from her season. Katie first appeared on The Bachelor season 25, lead by Matt James. While Katie did not form a strong connection with Matt, viewers admired her for standing up for contestant Sarah Trott when she was being bullied by other women in the house. Katie was then chosen as the lead of The Bachelorette season 17, where she traveled to New Mexico to find love.
Katie developed several strong connections on her season, but her final four came down to Michael Allio, Greg Grippo, Justin Glaze, and Blake Moynes. However, Michael and Greg both dropped out of the competition leaving Justin and Blake as the final two. Katie ultimately realized that she was in love with Blake and the two became engaged during the finale, although they broke up several months later. Katie later began a relationship with John Hersey, who had been eliminated during week 2 of her season. However, the two later broke up after seven months of dating.
In a series of recent Instagram stories, Katie revealed some never-before-heard secrets involving several of the men from her season. In a Q&A, the former Bachelorette asked her followers “What tea do you want spilled?” One fan asked for tea on Michael, and Katie revealed that one of her good friends had kissed him while the season was still airing. Katie shared that while she was still engaged to Blake when this had happened, it was a difficult moment for her to process.
Another follower asked for tea on Greg, to which Katie had another surprising response. Katie admitted that she was close friends with his ex, posting a selfie of herself and another girl who was presumably Greg’s ex-girlfriend. Someone else asked for the scoop on Greg’s best friend Andrew Spencer, to which Katie replied that she chose not to take him to hometowns as she did not want to lie to his family about her feelings for him. Both Greg and Andrew were among the fan favorites of the season.
Katie also responded to an inquiry about Thomas, saying that she felt that he got “the short end of the stick” on her season. She expressed that she thought he was kind, after he was painted as the villain of the season. Thomas went on to later fall in love with former lead of The Bachelorette Becca Kufrin on Bachelor in Paradise, and the two later became engaged. Michael and Andrew are set to appear on Bachelor in Paradise season 8 as well. As for Katie, it does not seem that she has any intention of dating within Bachelor Nation anytime soon.
