Katie Morton didn’t get much screen time while she was a contestant on The Bachelor, but after she was eliminated, she made major headlines because of a conversation she overheard before being sent home. Colton Underwood eliminated Katie during week six of the competition, and before she left, she warned him that some of the women remaining were not ready to get engaged, a conclusion she made based on what she overheard. The next week, Tayshia Adams and Kirpa Sudick reiterated these concerns to Colton, and named Cassie Randolph and Caelynn Miller-Keyes as the women who Katie was referring to.
However, Tayshia and Kirpa were unable to provide evidence, and only had Katie’s word to go on. Of course, Caelynn and Cassie defended themselves against the accusations, and insisted that they never said the things that they were being accused of. The whole situation left Colton — and the viewers — super torn. We will finally get to hear Katie’s side of the story during the Women Tell All special, which airs March 5 on ABC.
