Katie Thurston may have been involved in one of the most dramatic scenes on The Bachelorette following Greg Grippo’s exit, but it seems there was more than what we saw. 

‘The Bachelorette’: Who Did Katie Thurston Face Time Following Greg Grippo’s Exit?

Greg, for his part, stormed out of the show after Katie refused to state that she loved him. While she did her best to stop him from walking out, it was too late as she locked herself in the bathroom and demanded that the producers book her tickets home. As it turned out, she would stay on the show and get engaged to Blake Moynes.

But in between that moment, Katie had a crucial face time call with a former member of the franchise to give her some much-needed advice. The encounter, though, was not shown as it became part of the deleted scenes. So who was she calling? It turns out it was none other than Desiree Hartsock.

The latter was the lead on season 9 of the show and was clearly aware of what Katie was going through. In a post on the show’s Instagram page, they shared the video call. The post was captioned by the following comments: “@desireesiegfried knew exactly what @thekatiethurston was going through.”

The conversation was crucial for the following reasons. First of all, Desiree let Katie know that Greg’s actions were irrelevant to whether she wanted to stay. Katie had to think about what was best for her, rather than what would make Greg happy. And as for her opinion of Greg, here is what she had to say.

Her comments said: “I think the fact that he didn’t stay kind of shows …You want a man who’s going to stay for you no matter what, but you also don’t want someone who’s going to walk away at hard things.” Katie’s behaviour in the season finale summed up that advice she had received from Desiree.

She admitted that the main reason why she chose Blake was that he stayed until the end and chose to fight for her. It demonstrated to her that he was there for genuine reasons. Let us hope Katie has a great future going forward.
