Spoiler Alert: This article contains spoilers for Season 17 of The Bachelorette.
With hometowns right around the corner, Katie Thurston's season of The Bachelorette is coming to a close quickly. Who will end up in the Final Four? Who will take home the final rose? Read on to learn about the contestants who are left on The Bachelorette.
Who is left on The Bachelorette Season 17?
If you missed the past few episodes, you might be confused about who Blake is. Blake Moynes was a contestant on Season 16 of The Bachelorette. He initially fought for Clare Crawley's heart, but when she left after finding love with Dale Moss, he decided to stay on to compete for Tayshia Adams' final rose. He made it to Week 9 but was ultimately eliminated. Despite not being in the initial crop of contestants for Katie, he was able to join the season late, and rumors say they're quite smitten with each other.
Like fellow contestant Andrew Spencer, Justin's past came back to haunt him on The Bachelorette. Following the resurfacing of tweets that fans called homophobic and misogynistic, unlike Andrew, Justin decided to address the controversy. He took to Bachelor Happy Hour to say that at the time of the tweets, he was in his early teens and surrounded by people who used that kind of language often, so he hadn't understood the hurtful nature of the words. But today, he says, he's ashamed of what he used to believe was acceptable.
Another controversial figure this season is Greg Grippo. Not only did allegations surface that he's really an actor using the show to jumpstart his career, but ahead of the season premiere, Katie also liked a post that suggested that Greg has been hiding his real goal of getting clout for being on the show. Still, she ended up unliking the post and later spoke favorably of him. But rumor has it that the two are heading for a massive blowout.
Fans are worried that Michael Allio may end up walking away from Katie to go home to be with his son. Michael is a single father whose wife died from breast cancer in 2019. The widower has been a beloved contestant, and early on in the season, Katie even gave Michael two roses, one for him and one for his son, to show how much she appreciated him being there, even when his son couldn't be.
