Spoiler Alert: This article contains spoilers for The Bachelorette Season 17.

Who are the guys in Katie Thurston's Final Four?

Though Katie's season is the third one in the Bachelor or Bachelorette universe to film in isolation at a resort due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, spoilers have still gotten out about her top picks.

The go-to spoiler site Reality Steve has shared unconfirmed reports about who makes it to the hometown week on Katie's season. Until the season plays out, the exact list of men in the Final Four cannot be confirmed.

Reality Steve's selections are below.

1. Blake Moynes

One of Katie's rumored top choices wasn't originally even listed as a potential suitor for Season 17.

Viewers may recognize Blake Moynes as a fan favorite from Season 16 (when both Tayshia Adams and Clare Crawley were the leads). Things may not have worked out with Clare or Tayshia, but Blake is giving the process another try.

The wildlife manager joined Katie's season on June 28, so he'll have plenty of time to make a lasting impression.

While this usually hasn't worked out for past returning contestants, like Chris Bukowski or Heather Martin, Katie did offer Blake a spot in the cast.

2. Greg Grippo

The 28-year-old marketing sales representative snagged Katie's first impression rose on Night 1, so it's no surprise that his connection continues with the lead throughout the rest of the season (despite fans thinking he may be an actor).

According to his ABC bio, the Edison, N.J., resident is a "hopeless romantic" with outdoorsy interests. Greg is also interested in having six (!) kids, and he wants to grow old with someone.

Though Reality Steve previously reported that John Hersey was in the Final Four, we now know that's not the case. But Reality Steve has uncovered who is: Justin Glaze. Justin, who has gone viral for his absolutely perfect facial reactions, works in investment sales, but his real passion is painting, according to his bio.

4. Michael Allio

When Reality Steve first shared Katie's top contenders, he wasn't fully confident about who was in the Final Four with the other three men.

Several weeks after his initial post, Reality Steve added Andrew S. to the list, but ahead of the July 19 episode, he shared that he made a mistake. Though Andrew does make it to fifth place, Michael A. is in the fourth spot.

However, neither actually make it to hometowns. According to Reality Steve, Michael self-eliminates to go home to his son. Although technically he should have had a hometown date, he removes himself before Katie can meet his family.

Though fans now have some insight into how Katie's season will play out, they'll have to tune in to find out who secures the final rose — and Katie's heart.

The Bachelorette airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
