With the first of two seasons of The Bachelorette in 2021 officially underway, let’s get to know those in the running for Katie Thurston’s heart a little bit better.

The 30-year-old Washington native, who was on the latest season of The Bachelor with Matt James — as was the other upcoming Bachelorette, Michelle Young, whose season is set for the fall — repeatedly stood up against bullying and negativity in the house. The early fan favorite had stepped out of the limo with a light-up vibrator to meet Matt.

“Unapologetically herself, Katie is adventurous, daring and ready for a man with whom she can build a life,” reads an ABC description. “A marketing manager with an innate social media savvy and humorous outlook on life, she is a witty storyteller who wants a man that will laugh along with her.”
