All is fair in love and roses? Not so fast. Katie Thurston and Greg Grippo’s Bachelorette breakup has fans and former contestants split. Things went awry for the 30-year-old former banking manager and the 28-year-old New Jersey native during the Monday, August 2, episode of The Bachelorette after he opened up about the loss of his father during his hometown date, telling Katie that she “fills” the hole in his heart for the first time since the family death.
Y’all. Y’all. It’s all been building to this, and honestly, are we even going to talk about anything else?

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.
“The Bachelorette” star Katie Thurston shared a telling message after her emotional breakup with front-runner Greg Grippo. Thurston, 30, took to her Instagram Stories after Monday’s episode to repost an explainer on “gaslighting,” which the account @soyouwanttotalkabout defined as “a form of emotional abuse or psychological manipulation involving distorting the truth in order to confuse or instill doubt in another person to the point they question their own sanity or reality.”
In the end, every strategy in the history of The Bachelorette has failed. Doesn’t matter what the strategy is. This show is so beautifully averse to logic that all strategies die. Take Katie, this season’s Bachelorette, who designed a relatively reasonable strategy to account for the unusual experience of simultaneously...
