Fans of The Bachelorette have weighed in on whom they believe Katie Thurston appears most comfortable with as her season winds down to its final two weeks of competition.
Their speculation came to a fever pitch after the show shared three separate images on their Instagram page. A caption teased that the final contestants would share their families with Katie in the upcoming hometowns episode.
Blake Moynes, Justin Glaze, and Greg Grippo appear to be the men that have captured Katie’s interest throughout the season. They are now the final men standing as the Bachelorette airs its final two episodes of the brunette beauty’s journey for love.
During the past several weeks, viewers of The Bachelorette have watched as Katie gave her heart to these finalists. They also witnessed her heartbreak over Michael Allio’s self-elimination. Michael, a single father, chose to return home to his son rather than continue in the competition as one of the final four.
This left only three men to participate in the hometown episodes. Their families will journey to the New Mexico set of the series to meet Katie and give her a perspective of the lives they lead outside of The Bachelorette bubble.
Fans believe there is one man in particular with whom Katie appears to have a special bond. Fans found what they believed was evidence in the show’s latest slideshow of photographs.
The images that started Bachelroette fan speculation
Viewers of the series looked closely at three images shared on the show’s social media site. They deduced that Katie appeared most comfortable with Blake, the man she is rumored to become engaged to at the end of the competition.
In the first image seen above, Katie was seen standing with Justin. The couple stood with their arms wrapped around one another as they smiled for the camera.
The second photograph featured Katie and Blake, who wore red athletic jerseys with the Canadian symbol of a maple leaf emblazoned across the front. The couple leaned into one another and had large smiles on their faces as they posed for their snap.
The final image was that of Greg and Katie, who leaned against a chain-link face. Greg had his right arm wrapped protectively around her shoulders as she leaned into him and held his hand.
Bachelorette fans feel Katie’s bond is with this contestant
Many of those fans who commented on the social media share believed that Katie appeared to be most comfortable with Blake.
“Her smile looks the most genuine with Blake! Unpopular opinion, I don’t like Greg (don’t come at me),” penned one follower.
“Greg!!!!!” wrote a second fan of the New Jersey native who hoped he would win Katie’s heart.
“Funny how she only looks genuinely happy w Blake,” penned a third follower of the series.
In a post seen below, a fourth fan remarked, “She looks the happiest with Blake. That smile is REAL and not plotted for a picture. GO BLAKE.”
