Katie Thurston and ex Michael Allio were pictured hanging out together publicly this week for the first time since the end of their relationship on Katie’s season of The Bachelorette.
They were joined by Katie’s current boyfriend and contestant on her season of The Bachelorette, John Hersey. Also celebrating with the group were Bachelorette alumni Luke Stone, who appeared both on the 15th season of The Bachelorette and on the sixth season of Bachelor in Paradise, and Andrew Milcovich from The Bachelorette season 17.
Katie posted several Instagram stories of the group relaxing out by the beach, out to dinner, at a bar, and hanging out in what looks to be a hotel room.
Katie Thurston and Michael Allio’s Love Story
Katie and Michael fell in love during her season of The Bachelorette, but ultimately did not end up together when Michael self-eliminated. Despite making it to the final four, Michael decided he had to prioritize his family after a heartbreaking phone call with his 4-year-old son.
Katie was obviously devastated by the split, and the two even shared a series of flirty Instagram comments in the months after the show aired.
After Katie posted a lingerie picture to her Instagram, Michael left the now-deleted comment “Can’t say what I’d like to” with a couple of fire emojis.
