Bachelor Nation, get ready because this will likely be one of the most memorable Bachelorette finales in the series’ history.

It will be one of the rare few times a contestant will steal the thunder from the series star on the season’s finale.

The rumblings from the August 2 episode of the ABC dating series will reverberate throughout the season finale episode, where Katie Thurston, who believed she had three men to choose from as the show wound down, was now unexpectedly down to two.

Greg Grippo, who was favored to win the dating competition series since the show’s first episode when Katie gifted him with the first impression rose, unexpectedly left after the couple had a fight.

This interaction left both Greg and Katie in tears. He exited the show and Katie asked for a flight to be arranged so she could return to her Washington State home.

Katie was now left with two men to consider as her soulmate: Justin Glaze and Blake Moynes, but will Greg’s dramatic exit sour her chances for finding love with either man?

How will Greg Grippo impact Katie Thurston’s finale ?

At the conclusion of the last episode of The Bachelorette, fans saw Greg exit through a gate at the show’s New Mexico resort. Fans did not see him leave in a limousine nor did they hear him speak regarding his untimely exit.

Most contestants will leave some type of exit statement for viewers to understand the reasoning behind leaving or their emotions regarding being eliminated from the competition.

So it will be likely fans will see Greg once more but maybe not.

One thing is for sure, viewers will certainly hear a lot about Greg as Blake and Justin learn of his exit.

Katie will continue to speak of her love for Greg and how it was real. In a tense finale clip, Blake said that if Katie’s heart was still with Greg, what was the point of continuing on with filming.

According to an ABC press release, Greg will appear on The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose.

This episode will delve into Katie’s relationships with the final three men and introduce viewers to her fiance, if applicable.

If Katie picks either Justin or Blake, as she has rumored to have already done, it doesn’t mean they were necessarily her second choice.

Katie may have needed Greg to move aside for her true feelings for the other men to become clear.

In the after-show recap, series hosts Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams will be joined on stage by Katie and her final three as they make sense of what happened in New Mexico, including a tense confrontation with Greg about his sudden departure and his acting school past.

The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.

I feel Katie was very hateful to Greg. I feel he was honest about his feelings and why he left. He could not continue. He wanted a commitment she would not give at that time and he was emotionally unable to continue. On other episodes contestants do this, state their love for each other early and leave the show. Other men left and she called at least one back and he came back for a few minutes only for Katie to tell him good bye again in that moment. She sent one of the two men away and Greg felt this was what he too was going to deal with. Oaky he didn’t say good bye, it is difficult . She got Blake so way does she have to be so immature and hateful to Greg.
On a different topic. Why do most contestants call the men guys, so shallow and immature. they are all grown men.

I agree with you,
When he told her he loved her , she could didn’t have to say she loved him but could have said it mean alot to her or she does have feelings for him. That was a validation he was looking for.
Katie was a rude jerk to Greg on the final rose. Why, she was going to send him home anyway.
