Katie Thurston to Appear on a Special Episode of 'Talking It Out' After Tonight's 'Bachelorette'
Katie Thurston will appear on a special episode of Bachelor Nation’s “Talking It Out” podcast, which is set to be released following tonight’s episode of “The Bachelorette.”
Katie will chat with co-hosts Mike Johnson and Bryan Abasolo about an important conversation that will air during the third installment of Season 17. She previously teased the moment while speaking with Becca Kufrin and guest co-host Tayshia Adams on last week’s edition of “Bachelor Happy Hour.”
“The upcoming episode is going to be a pretty important conversation — and I don’t think it’s really been highlighted before in this way,” the Washington native said. “And I say that because it’s a conversation that I want Bachelor Nation to join in on. It’s a very important one for men and women to go through and understand.”
She continued, “So, I’m just really excited to have that opportunity to share because I got to do that with the men, and it really made a difference.”
Katie also mentioned that her decision to have the discussion “surprised everybody” — even herself.
“I never expected anything. So, going through this date, I didn’t know this conversation was going to happen,” she recounted. “In my heart, I was like, ‘This is the time to share it.’ And it surprised everybody, including myself.”
Katie said that the conversation marked a “transformative” turn in her “Bachelorette” journey: “[It] really bonded me with those men who were there.”
“The Bachelorette” airs Mondays on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
