Your Dramatic First Look at Katie Thurston's Season of 'The Bachelorette' Is Here!
Are you ready, Bachelor Nation? The first look at Katie Thurston’s season of “The Bachelorette” dropped on Monday and there is so much to look forward to — especially on night one!
From a mysterious man arriving in an oversized gift box to a suitor dressing up in a “purrfect” cat costume for feline fanatic Katie, the guys of Season 17 are pulling out all the stops for the franchise’s reigning lead.
There is plenty of drama on the horizon as well. Elsewhere in the clip, a contestant walks through the door holding a blow-up doll, which seemingly prompts another cast member to quip, “Cheers to not being that guy.”
Next, several of Katie’s men are seen shedding tears in their pursuit of the Bachelorette’s final rose.
The stunning Washington native becomes emotional herself as her journey progresses. At one point, she confronts her men by declaring, “If you’re not here for the right reasons, there’s the door.”
But there is also a lot of fun to be had when Katie’s search for love kicks off this summer. The preview sees former Bachelorettes Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe making their debut as Katie’s “mentors.” Additionally, the preview teases “crazy” and “sexy” dates that include steamy makeout sessions and, yes, even shirtless cowboys.
Watch the sneak peek below — and see how Katie’s story unfolds when “The Bachelorette” Season 17 premieres Monday, June 7, on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
