Matt James’s season of The Bachelor has been doing the absolute most thanks to a team of “villains” who may or may not be producer plants. But the one contestant who’s been rising above the drama since the very beginning when she stepped out of the limo holding a massive dildo?! That’d be bank marketing manager Katie Thurston.

Seattle-based Katie is a Bachelor Nation fan favorite and there are already petitions (fine, I mean Twitter threads) to make her ABC’s next Bachelorette. So the time has obviously come to stalk her as if she’s your ex’s new girlfriend. Cool? Let’s go.

She’s All About Sex Positivity

Katie has been super sex positive since arriving on The Bachelor. To circle back to that dildo moment real quick, Katie said, “It wasn’t some agenda that I had coming on to the show. It’s just who I am and who I’ve been this whole time. It wasn’t until after the fact that I realized how big of a deal it was—which excites me because I do believe it’s 2021 and women should be comfortable talking about their sexuality.”


She’s TikTok Famous

Before applying to The Bachelor, 29-year-old Katie was already cool on TikTok. Naturally, her most popular TikTok is about masturbating and having sex with ghosts:

And thanks to TikTok, we also know she bled on a friend’s face while making out:

I’ve never related to someone on this show more.

She Has High Expectations in a Partner

Literally stealing her ABC bio for all future dating profiles:

“While Katie is serious about finding her person, she needs a man who can laugh along with her but is okay with him laughing at her too when the moment calls for it. Katie is looking for a mature man who has ambitions to succeed in everything he does, both personally and professionally. Her dream man will be passionate about building a long-term life with her and will treat Katie as his equal in the relationship. Nothing turns her off more than someone who sits around playing video games all day or a man who tries to kiss her at the inopportune moment….It’s all about creating the right vibe with Katie!”

She Has an Adorable Cat

His name is Tommy and we must protect him at all costs:

Kay, at this point we are entering the spoiler zone. As in, a massive Bachelor spoiler is literally just. One. Scroll. Away, so if that’s not your vibe, please close this tab in a panic.

She Was *Supposed to Be* the Next Bachelorette

According to Reality Steve who has a pretty good track record with Bachelor Nation spoilers, Katie was originally ABC’s choice to lead the franchise as the next Bachelorette...until Chris Harrison and Rachael Kirkconnell’s racism controversy changed things.

Here’s Reality Steve’s take:

“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.”

Guess we’ll have to wait a few weeks to find out wtf is even happening!

You love all the deets on Bachelor Nation. So do we! Let’s overanalyze them together. ✔️
