Friends with her exes? Katie Thurston spent the weekend hanging out with one of her former suitors. Not only that, she went into wingwoman mode and tried to help her cast-off find love. Is the Bachelorette star close friends with all her exes, or just this one? 

Katie Thurston Hangs Out With John Hersey

Bachelorette and TikTok sensation Katie Thurston had a fun weekend hanging out with her friends. One of her friends just so happens to be John Hersey. Viewers will recognize him as one of her suitors on Season 17 of the dating show. 

In addition to John, Katie was hanging out with Stephen Lovegrove, AKA ‘America’s Life Coach’. The three were spending time together in San Diego, California. Katie is rumored to be moving to California, though some suspect she may be heading up north instead. 

John Hersey Once Rumored Final Pick 

As Season 16 kicked off in June, blogger Reality Steve started doling out spoilers. One of his early spoilers was that John Hersey was in the final three. With that in mind, Bachelor Nation lost their minds when Katie Thurston visited John’s place of work in San Diego. He is a waiter at Duke’s La Jolla.

Fans were shocked that Katie Thurston would spoil her own season. Eagle-eyed followers spotted John Hersey taking an order at the table behind Katie.
