Katie Thurston Eyed for Next 'Bachelorette' Role, But Anything Can Happen Still

While ABC still has not confirmed the news, it appears that Katie Thurston is the network’s pick as the star of the upcoming season of The Bachelorette.

The 29-year-old bank marketing manager from Washington is “all-but-sure” to be the next Bachelorette, sources told Variety. She currently is a contestant on Matt James‘ season of The Bachelor.

The news was initially reported by Reality Steve last week and the reality TV blogger said that Katie was announced as the Bachelorette during the Women Tell All taping. Variety‘s sources say that the announcement never happened and Reality Steve clarified his report.

Katie has been a fan favorite ever since her entrance on The Bachelor, when she showed how she’s a sex-positive person.

Variety notes that “casting decisions can always change up until the last moment” and they provided the example of how Caila Quinn was seemingly set as the Bachelorette a few years ago. The network had already begun filming her promos when they decided to switch to JoJo Fletcher.

See how Katie responded to the reports that she will be the next Bachelorette.
