Katie’s all about being Katie in her first “Bachelorette” promo.
Lovers were given a peek on the upcoming season starring Katie Thurston — a fan favourite from “Bachelor” Matt James’ season — in a teaser launched by means of ABC on Sunday.
“I’m who I’m and I need to meet any person who is aware of who they’re,” Thurston is heard pronouncing within the clip.
To actually get her level throughout, the 30-year-old financial institution advertising supervisor wears a T-shirt emblazoned with the phrases “Be a Katie.”
Thurston and fellow former contestant Michelle Younger had been each named in March as upcoming “Bachelorettes,” with Thurston’s season debuting this summer season and Younger’s within the the autumn. The twin announcement got here after a season that was once marred in controversy stemming from racially insensitive conduct at the portions of contestant Rachael Kirkconnell and host Chris Harrison.
However for Thurston, the on-air drama focused on her talking out towards accused bullying occurring as the ladies vied for a courting with James. Within the new ABC promo, a flashback to a type of moments is captured, with Thurston pronouncing, “I’m now not going to sit down right here and let imply ladies be imply ladies!”
Following her removing in Week 6 when James mentioned he and Thurston could be as buddies, a lot of Bachelor Country rallied round Thurston to be named the following “Bachelorette.”
The brand new season is ready to premiere on June 7.
