In The Bachelorette Season 17 premiere, Greg received Katie’s first impression rose. Then the frontrunner received the first one-on-one date, and the couple got to spark a deep early connection. So naturally, many Bachelor Nation fans questioned whether Greg will win Katie’s heart in the end.


Meanwhile, Greg’s screentime has gone down in the last few episodes of The Bachelorette. But even so, the cast member still continued to share important moments with Katie.


In the week 3 episode, Greg was the only one who comforted Katie amid the Karl Smith drama. Then in week 4, Katie revealed she was starting to fall in love with Greg.


“You’re just being you, which is impressing me. You’re not putting on an act,” Katie told Greg. “I know you’ve shared a lot with me, and I feel like even that made us a lot closer. I think I have to seek this out to the very end, and if it’s something you and I can get through together, that says a lot.”


She continued, “I’m starting to fall for you. Whatever that means at the end of this, we don’t know yet. That’s what we’re exploring.”

Many Bachelorette fans think it’s clear the producers want them to believe Greg and Katie will end up together. But when speaking with Bachelor Nation Nick Viall on The Viall Files, Katie suggested that viewers still don’t know what her “type” is just yet.


“I think people think they know what my type is, and they don’t,” Katie said. “I think that’s the biggest surprise as you watch each episode. People are ruling out these guys, and I’m like, don’t rule them out yet.”


She added, “I’m getting to know them and their hearts and their minds. I’m really giving them a chance. I think people are gonna see that this season.”


In response, Nick questioned Katie’s thoughts on Greg.


“So at this point this season, it’s not as obvious to you that it is to us that you’re gonna pick Greg,” the former Bachelor said.



Then Katie replied, “Oh, absolutely not. I was very open.”

Of course, Katie didn’t give too much away about her future with Greg in The Bachelorette. Even Nick wasn’t sure what to make of the new lead’s response. 


“I’m a pretty good reader of people, and you have a pretty good poker face,” Nick told Katie. “I can’t tell if you’re just being a savvy bachelorette or totally lying to my face.”


Meanwhile, Katie revealed she gets heartbroken in The Bachelorette. Then Nick predicted Greg leaves and Katie picks Blake Moyes.


“I didn’t say that,” Katie said when Nick dropped the theory.


Then when Katie was questioned whether Michael Allio, aka Michael A., will self-eliminate and go home to his son, she noted it was “tough” to let her contestants go.


“Look, I got great guys,” Katie said. “So you can only imagine sending these great guys was very tough.”


But regardless of what happens to Katie and her contestants, it certainly seems like her Bachelorette journey will be a wild ride.


“It’s tough being the lead. People don’t realize that,” Katie said. “They’re like, ‘Did you have fun?’ And I’m like, ‘F— no, I didn’t have fun.’”

Ahead of The Bachelorette Season 17 premiere on June 7, Reality Steve shared early spoilers about Katie’s ending. The blogger claimed Katie will choose Greg Grippo, Justin Glaze, Andrew Spencer, and Blake Moynes as her final four contestants. But at the time, Reality Steve was unable to confirm the current lead’s final rose pick and winner.


Nevertheless, the Bachelor Nation spoiler guru claimed Katie got engaged in her Bachelorette finale.


“Katie definitely got engaged at the end of this,” Reality Steve wrote on May 13. “And unless she breaks up before the finale, which I guess anything can happen, but she’s happy and engaged as we speak, so I’d expect that to last.”

On June 23, Reality Steve updated fans on his early Bachelorette spoilers, claiming Katie will get engaged to Blake. At this point, Tayshia Adams and Clare Crawley’s ex has yet to appear on the show. But The Bachelorette promo trailer for week 4 indicates Blake will meet Katie in the new episode on June 28.


Meanwhile, Reality Steve shared why it took a few weeks to update fans on Katie and Blake’s engagement. The blogger allegedly “received actual proof” claiming that Justin, Greg, and Andrew S. did not win the final rose. Then Reality Steve noted that Blake was Katie’s winner due to the process of elimination early on. But now, he appears confident with sharing the new spoiler.


“Just hadn’t heard anything regarding Blake until this past weekend I got my first ‘she’s with Blake’ info,” Reality Steve wrote. “Then yesterday, got the confirmation I needed.”


The blogger also suggested that Katie and Blake are still together and engaged weeks after filming The Bachelorette finale.


“Whatever the case, she’s with Blake, and they’re engaged. The end,” Reality Steve wrote.

While Reality Steve claimed Katie will end up with Blake in The Bachelorette Season 17 finale, the blogger doesn’t know the order of elimination for the final four.


“Now, the thing I’m unsure of as of this moment is HOW we get to that point,” Reality Steve wrote. “I don’t know how the final 4 shakes out just yet in terms of who goes home when, so that’s the next thing I’m trying to find out.”


But regardless, Katie already teased how The Bachelorette Season 17 ends. In an interview with Good Morning America, the new lead confirmed her journey wrapped earlier than expected. Katie also revealed she’s happy with the outcome.


“The end is crazy,” Katie said. “I’m happy. I had to tell myself everything happens for a reason. That’s what you have to really embrace, and that’s what I’ve been doing.”
