Best Spoilers / Rumors From Katie Thurston’s ‘Bachelorette’ Season 17

Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette just wrapped, and we’re already being treated to juicy spoilers from the upcoming season! ABC has been coming through with the promos, and THANK GOD because recent-ish drama (and yes, I am fully talking about the Rachael Kirkconnell and Chris Harrison racism controversy) almost changed the entire Bachelorette season’s trajectory.

Some other fun things to know: Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe are stepping in as hosts while Chris steps back from the franchise (exciting !!!) and Katie’s season will be followed by * another * Bachelorette season starring Michelle Young.

Katie’s season is set to premiere soon (June 7, mark you cal), so if you want more insight on what to expect, BE WARNED! This post obviously contains — you guessed it — spoilers for Katie’s season of The Bachelorette. If you’re cool with that, please proceed, you curiosity-filled cat, you.

ABC Went Back and Forth Over Casting Katie

Reality Steve was predictably the first to announce Katie’s casting news, but he pointed out an unusual roadblock: After the Rachael and Chris controversy broke, he posted an update to his blog and said Katie would not be the Bachelorette:

“Katie was originally going to be the Bachelorette, and once the shit hit the fan with the franchise the last couple weeks, the course of action changed, and they are now in discussions on who to go with. All I’ve heard is it won’t be Katie now. ”

A little over a week after the above mess, Steve once again confirmed that Katie actually * is * set to be the Bachelorette … again! “The more things change, the more they stay the same. The original spoiler I reported seems to be correct. Katie Thurston is set to be announced as the Bachelorette in the coming days, ”he wrote on Twitter.

Katie’s Season Was Originally Going to Tape in Canada, but That Also Changed

Canada was supposed to be the filming location for The Bachelorette … that is, until the production team changed its mind. (I’m sensing a trend here.) In late January, Steve gave his followers intel on Twitter and said, “The resort for Bachelorette filming in Canada next season might be at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Alberta.”

Less than a month later, Steve corrected those rumors and confirmed that The Bachelorette’s upcoming season will take place in the United States, specifically in New Mexico at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya in Albuquerque.

Katie’s cast has been revealed

And you can check out the full list of hotties competing to win Katie’s affections here:

Katie ended her season early

Before you automatically jump to the conclusion that she pulled a Clare Crawley, hear me out — er, I mean an Us Weekly — out. Apparently, “Katie was in control and made sure the men she wanted were there and the men she wasn’t interested in, she sent packing” and there was not a single issue to be had because “went great and it wrapped a week ahead of schedule. “

Kaitlyn, Tayshia, and Katie all seemingly confirmed that they were ending their season early because they also posted snaps that hinted they were on their way home and / or no longer on set.

And in case you’re wondering how Kaitlyn and Tayshia did their first time co-hosting, Us’s source said it went great. “Tayshia and Kaitlyn can relate to Katie’s journey in a lot of different ways, which you’ll see play out, so it was nice to have them there to help out with whatever situation came up … Tayshia had fun and loved doing it . She and Katilyn made a great team. “

And that’s all we know so far! Be sure to keep your eyes on this story for any future updates.
