What Will The Bachelorette Producers Do Now?

From the very first episode, producers have positioned Greg, a 28-year-old marketing sales representative from New Jersey, as the front runner on this season of The Bachelorette. Bachelorette Katie bestowed upon the sad-eyed, floppy-haired Greg the first impression rose, and with the help of producers, she picked him for the first one-on-one date and — this is rare — another one-on-one date after that. In contrast to season villains like Thomas, the real-estate broker who made the mistake of admitting he wanted to be the Bachelor, Greg has been portrayed as the Good Guy in every episode. Until last night, I assumed he was going to “win” the show and propose to Katie, and that all the other story lines — like former contestant Blake showing up halfway through the season — were just for fun.

Katie and Greg’s Bachelorette Fight Has Reached the IG Story Screenshot Phase

As the reality-television equivalent of R.E.M.’s 1992 hit “Everybody Hurts,” The Bachelorette pulled off a spectacularly depressing twist on Monday night’s episode: Leading lady Katie Thurston was dumped by contestant Greg Grippo, the destined winner and day-one frontrunner, after he angrily vocalized how Thurston had “completely dismissed” his declarations of love to her. The episode ended with a breakup montage of the couple (Gretie: 2021–2021), but viewers holding out hope that it might have been just a romantic red herring seemingly now have to come to terms with the fact that Thurston will, indeed, end up with either the sex-crazed franchise three-peater or Twitter Reaction Man instead. E! News reports that on Tuesday, Thurston posted a series of Instagram Stories that screenshotted explainers about gaslighting and how to identify the behavior. Among the Stories Thurston posted, gaslighting was defined as “a form of emotional abuse” within relationships.
