Katie Thurston’s Dad Died In 2012
Although Katie has yet to open up to Matt about her father’s passing on The Bachelor, she did talk to Sarah about losing her father on the Jan. 18 episode of the show. Sarah explained that her father was currently suffering from ALS, and admitted it was hard for her to be away from home while filming the show. Katie revealed that she could, sadly, relate all too well to Sarah’s pain.
“I 100 percent encourage you to be with him,” Katie urged. “I understand that more than I would like to. I missed out on my goodbye to my dad. I would never want that for you.” Katie didn’t share any details beyond that, but was clearly touched by hearing Sarah’s heartbreaking story.

How Old Is Katie Thurston?
Katie’s Bachelor bio confirms she was 29 when she filmed the show during the fall of 2020. However, she turned 30 on Jan. 3, according to a Jan. 2 post on her Instagram page. “Today marks the last day of my twenties,” Katie wrote. “Life really does pass by quickly. If I died tomorrow, I wouldn’t be happy with what I accomplished. I followed the ‘rules’ of life. Get a career. Save the money .Start that 401k. Buy the house. And for what? An entire decade to pass without feeling fulfilled? This past year, I finally unapologetically loved who I am. I lost people along the way, and that’s ok. We aren’t meant to please everyone. What I do know is life is too short to feel unfulfilled.”
