‘The Bachelorette’: This Katie Thurston Contestant Might Not Be What He Appears

Katie Thurston is trying to figure out who’s really on The Bachelorette for her and who isn’t. She sent home Cody Menk after she heard he wasn’t there for the right reasons. And a new trailer for the June 21 episode shows that another person might not be all that he appears on The Bachelorette.

Katie Thurston sent home Cody Menk after hearing rumors about him on ‘The Bachelorette’

Aaron Clancy told Katie on The Bachelorette that he knew Cody from back home in San Diego. He told her that they weren’t friends, and to be cautious of him.

“He described you using words such as ‘malicious,’ ‘unkind,’ and that’s concerning to me,” Katie said on the show to Cody. “For me, being kind is one of the most important things I’m looking for in a person.”

She asked Cody if he knew what Aaron was talking about. Cody said it wasn’t “factual information” and Katie said Aaron claimed Cody was “here for fame.”

Katie then asked Cody to leave The Bachelorette, since she didn’t know who was telling the truth. And she hadn’t developed a strong enough connection with Cody to keep him there, anyway.

Karl Smith placed doubt in Katie Thurston’s mind about who is on ‘The Bachelorette’ for the right reasons

After Katie sent Cody home, Karl Smith told her that Cody wasn’t the only one there who wasn’t being completely genuine. This made Katie extremely upset, causing her to cry and doubt who had honest intentions with her on the show. Karl didn’t reveal who he was talking about, and was vague about who he could be referencing.

The other contestants found out it was Karl who told this to Katie, and all the men got frustrated with the other contestant. A preview for next week’s episode showed who Karl could have been talking about to Katie, though.

In a preview clip for the June 21 episode, all the men seemed to be in agreement that contestant Thomas Jacobs might not be on The Bachelorette for the right reasons.

First, Connor Brennan said that Karl “single-handedly made her doubt her relationship with each and every one of us.” Connor continued, maybe about Thomas: “This is a bad person. I’m done with him, I’m done with him.”

Then, the video showed Aaron saying that “Thomas is some sort of manipulative psychopath.”

The men asked Thomas if he had thought about leading The Bachelor after competing for Katie’s love on The Bachelorette.

“Yes, that was a thought that was on my mind,” he replied.

Karl said in an in-the-moment interview: “If you want to come at me, come at me.”

Viewers will have to watch all the drama unfold on The Bachelorette on June 21 on ABC at 8 p.m. EST.
