Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette premiered with 30 hopeful super studs all competing for her attention. (The leading lady herself deemed them all so handsome.) After some ~memorable~ entrances (Box guy and cat man in one night?), Katie gave the prized first impression rose to Greg Grippo and sent seven other guys packing.
There was drama, street hockey, a pasta necklace, and a few glimmers of love all in the first episode. Just when you thought The Bachelorette couldn’t get any more exciting, two guys picked a fight out of absolutely nowhere. Here’s hoping that beef fizzles as fast as some previous Bachelor engagements.
The Bachelorette producers also blessed fans with Katie’s very first rose ceremony. No cliffhangers on who gets roses or not, 23 lucky gents received a bloom. If you’re curious about who got stiffed, here are the latest contestants to be sent home:
After embarking on a Bachelorette road trip, 31-year-old surgical skin salesman Jeff turned his RV around and headed back home to Cranford, New Jersey. He didn’t get a rose from Katie. “I just wasn’t feeling the vibes with the RV,” she said. Maybe it was the dirty underwear lying on the couch, who could blame her?
For auto parts manager Brandon, The Bachelorette was just a quick pit stop. He wasn’t able to sweep Katie off her feet on his motorized scooter, so the 26-year-old headed back home to Mokena, Illinois as quickly as he arrived.
“Why not us?” 25-year-old dancer Marty asked Katie, but it wasn’t enough to keep him in the running. She sent him home to Reno, Nevada, even after he showed her his crystal collection. I guess those weren’t the vibes she’s looking for.
Katie must not have seen this 25-year-old real estate investor as a good investment in her future. The Mission Viejo, California native didn’t receive a rose or even a chat with her.
Not even 35-year-old Gabriel’s perfect hug could distract Katie from sending him home to Charlotte, North Carolina. The entrepreneur may have returned empty handed, but maybe he felt more relaxed after all those deep breaths.
Blonde curls and a pink suit made 25-year-old basketball coach stand out from the crowd right away. Unfortunately, he didn’t grab Katie’s attention quickly enough to spend any time with her, so no one will ever really know why she sent him home to Bakersfield, California.
Marcus and Katie had a lot in common, by Bachelorette standards: They’re both from Washington and they’re both 30 years old. But Katie won’t be living a Selling Sunset fantasy with this real estate agent anytime soon, because she sent him back to Vancouver without a second thought.
