Katie Thurston has already returned from ‘The Bachelorette’ set

Katie is already done filming for The Bachelorette. In addition to fans having two seasons of The Bachelorette this year, there have already been other twists that have been reported. The one twist everyone knows is that Michelle Young will lead her own season of the show, after Bachelor in Paradise this year.

But for now, viewers of the show can see what Katie is up to on social media since she has returned home.

Katie’s season wrapped up on production ahead of schedule, per Us Weekly. A source said this was because of her “control” and that she “made sure the men she wanted were there and the men she wasn’t interested in, she sent packing.”

After concluding her season, Katie returned to social media with an important Instagram post.

The lead of The Bachelorette implied her current relationship status in an Instagram post she shared on April 28. She uploaded a video and said: “Can’t start a healthy relationship without being healthy.” Katie stated in the caption that she received her coronavirus vaccine after returning from filming.

“I hate getting shots,” she expressed in the clip. “But I’m not doing this for me. I’m doing it for my mom, who is an essential worker. Or my sister, who is pregnant. Or my nieces and nephews, who are still in school. I do it for my grandparents. My friends. My community. For you. So do your part. Get the vaccine. Let’s fight this together.”

Katie showed herself getting ready to get her shot in the video, and also displayed herself getting the vaccine.

Reality Steve’s spoilers about Katie Thurston’s first impression rose

After Katie’s Instagram post, viewers might begin inferring that she is in a happy relationship following The Bachelorette. Reality Steve has yet to share final picks from Katie’s season.

But he did predict on Twitter that she gave her first impression rose to Greg Grippo, a New Jersey native. It is possible that Katie gave her final rose to Greg as well.

Viewers will start to see Katie’s journey on The Bachelorette beginning on June 7 on ABC. Until the final, though, we won’t know whether she’s actually in a relationship or not after the show. Hopefully, she found what she was looking for!
