Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette officially kicked off this week. Of course, fans have a lot of questions. One of those is why Greg got the first impression rose and not Connor. Katie is explaining her reasoning behind the decision.
Katie Thurston’s first impression rose
There’s no doubt that Connor made a huge first impression on Katie Thurston on the new episode of The Bachelorette.
Connor stepped out of the limo dressed as a cat and even got his makeup smeared on Katie during a steamy makeout session. The pair seemed to really hit it off and have great natural chemistry.
It seems many fans were expecting him to earn the first impression rose. However, he did not. Instead, Greg got the rose.
Greg was much more quiet and shy, however still very sweet. In fact, this is exactly why Katie liked him. He was very true to himself ScreenRant says.
“What I loved about Greg is he was just true to himself, which was this very nervous, very uncomfortable guy,” she says “He didn’t try and act cool or, like, be this guy that he’s not. He was just like, ‘This is me and I’m really freaking scared.’ And I thought it was really endearing, you know? And I could tell as long as he opened up, there was something more there. And so I thought, you know, giving him the first impression rose would give him that validation of, ‘I’m into you. Let’s figure this out.’”
Does that mean Connor is out?
Of course not! There’s no denying the chemistry between Katie and Connor. Even Katie knows that.
“Well, first of all, he’s dressed as a cat and he did his research on me. I love my cat so much,” Katie reveals about Connor. “And then he has these ridiculous jokes that made me laugh. He’s handsome. And honestly, he was the first name I remembered by heart. I was like, ‘I know him, Connor, the cat.’ That’s what I called him and he’s just a great guy.”
How cute is that? Any cat lover knows just how much cats mean and having a SO care about cats too actually means a lot!
Only time will tell how Katie’s relationship continues to grow and change with each man. However, first impression rose winners do tend to make it pretty far in the show.
