Now that ABC has announced two seasons of The Bachelorette in 2021, it’s moving on to who might be in the running to win Katie Thurston’s heart in Season 17 this summer.

The 30-year-old Washington native, who was on the latest season of The Bachelor with Matt James — as was the other bachelorette, Michelle Young, who was that show’s runner-up — 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.”
