Katie and John appear to have become good friends with Kyle Abrams and Deepti Vempati from Love is Blind.
The four of them have linked up several times, including getting a fun photo together while at week one of the popular music festival Coachella.
Katie Thurston and Deepti Vempati have somewhat similar stories when it comes to how their time on a romance reality television show played out.
Both women chose to get engaged to one person from their season but then found a stronger connection with another man from their season after the show.
Deepti was engaged to Love is Blind’s notorious cast member Shake Chatterjee but decided she deserved better and chose not to marry him on their wedding day. Deepti now spends a lot of time with Kyle, who admitted that he wished he would have proposed to her.
For Katie, she was engaged to Blake Moynes, but the pair quickly split. Then, Katie entered a relationship with John, and the couple is still going strong.
