In a preview for the June 14 episode of ‘The Bachelorette,’ Katie Thurston has a one-on-one conversation with Thomas Jacobs.
It’s only episode two, but Thomas Jacobs already appears to be making waves on season 17 of The Bachelorette. A preview for the show’s June 14 episode seems to show Katie Thurston confronting Thomas during what appears to be a cocktail party. “He said that you’re here for fame,” Katie says, with a no-nonsense attitude. During the episode, it was revealed that Katie actually said this to Cody Menk, not Thomas, but the preview clearly shows a one-on-one chat with Thomas either way.
Thomas clearly made a good first impression on Katie, as he was one of 23 men to survive the first rose ceremony during the June 7 premiere. We’ll have to wait and see what happens next between them, though! For now, check out more to know about Thomas below.
