The Bachelorette Season 17 Episode 2 Spoilers
After a magical first night, Katie seems pleased with the line-up of suitors vying for her love. But this relaxed vibe will be completely upended in the second episode as the men gear up for their first real challenge. They will be pulled out of their comfort zones with fresh tasks testing their worth as a partner, and Katie will finally take one man out of the 23 on a dreamy camping date. This intimate setup might prompt some questions to be answered and pave the way for drama. In ‘The Bachelorette’ season 17 episode 2, Katie will then have to figure out the true motives of her potential suitors.
The Bachelorette Season 17 Episode 1 Recap
The first episode of season 17 introduces Katie Thurston, who you may remember from Matt James’ season (25) of ‘The Bachelor.’ Fans took a liking to her because of the way she handled all the underserved hate and bullying thrown at her in the parent series. Katie admits that she belongs to a divorced, low-income family that often shifted base. As a result, she jumped schools often. The transient phases of her early life had conditioned her into believing that she’d never find the one. This season, hopefully, will put an end to that notion.
Apart from that, we’re introduced to two new hosts: former Bachelorettes Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams. Next, we meet the guys, who enter as dramatically as possible, hoping to catch Katie’s eye and make a positive impression. Some of the most unusual ones include a ball pit, a man presenting underwear, an artificial fish, a man in a cat costume, and a huge gift. They subsequently waste no time bonding with Katie and play a game of hockey with her.
The guys get along with each other for now, and one of them, named Justin Glaze, steals her heart with a cute painting of roses. Katie shares her first kiss with him while Greg Grippo receives the first impression rose. Although he seemed tensed around her, she could see layers of personality hiding within. Greg makes her laugh and is vulnerable, and that is probably why Katie chose him. At the rose ceremony, seven out of thirty men get eliminated.
