As always, The Bachelorette premiere will highlight the new cast as they charm Katie the minute they step out of the limo. The June 7 episode will also feature Katie’s first impression rose winner, who is Greg Grippo, according to Reality Steve. 

“Hey, a spoiler for Katie’s season! Greg Grippo received the first impression rose,” Reality Steve wrote on Twitter on April 12. 

Bachelor Nation fans will also get to watch something they’ve never seen before. Previously, ABC confirmed former bachelorettes Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will co-host Katie’s season together, filling in for Chris Harrison after he stepped away from the franchise. 

Meanwhile, it seems Katie’s season will be one of the most romantic — or possibly dramatic — seasons of The Bachelorette. When speaking with Good Morning America ahead of the premiere, Katie admitted it would be difficult to watch her story unfold onscreen, especially since she fell in love with more than one contestant.

“It’s gonna be hard,” Katie said. “I’ll be honest. There’s more than one person that I do fall for. I have a great group of men, what do you expect? Watching those emotions back and connections form, I think it’s going to be a little tough.”
