On her Instagram stories, Katie Thurston asked her followers, “What are you curious about with night one in New Mexico?”
One fan asked, “3 guys you remember catching your eye night 1 (you can list John as #1).”
Katie responded by providing a YouTube link to a deleted scene from The Bachelorette Season 17 premiere.
In the clip, Katie informed former cohosts Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe about the men she had considered giving her first impression rose.
The men Katie listed included Andrew Spencer, Michael Allio, and Tre Cooper. However, Katie ultimately gave her first impression rose to Greg Grippo.

Katie confidently answered, “Having these two women with me! Without a doubt.”
When asked about the first conversation with her current boyfriend, John Hersey, on opening night, Katie admitted, “With so many men, we were running out of time so I started having group chats. Not much time spent with John.”
Katie was also asked if she and John kissed on the first night, and she allowed John to answer the question, revealing that they had not locked lips on opening night.
It’s known that the cast often has lots of drinks during the premiere, and Katie was asked about whether she had any drinks or shots.
Katie shared, “It was somewhere between 30-40 degrees that night so between limos I was drinking hottie toddies (whiskey, honey, lemon, and hot water).”
The Bachelorette viewers can look forward to new leads Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia when the show returns this July.
The Bachelorette is currently on hiatus on ABC.
