'The Bachelorette' Season 17: John Hersey's fans want him on Michelle Young's season
Katie Thurston eliminating fan favorite John Hersey hasn't settled well with Bachelor Nation who now want him on Young's season
Katie Thurston seems to have made her first wrong decision as 'The Bachelorette' Season 17 lead by sending John Hersey home. The cocktail party and eventual rose ceremony were postponed last week because of the drama Karl Smith created. For those who missed it, Smith spoke to Thurston, apprising her of the fact that there were some men who weren't on the show for the right reasons, in his opinion.
Thurston has been clear that she wants to leave the show with a husband. The possibility that not everyone was there wanting the same things as her did upset her and the June 21 episode picked up from the same place. Smith continued to stand his ground that there were people in the show that Thurston needed to see them for what they truly were. In light of these revelations, Thurston canceled the cocktail party and decided to move straight into the rose ceremony. While all this drama was happening Season 18 bachelorette Michelle Young was being dragged into the mix. The 28-year-old elementary school teacher from Minnesota who was the runner-up to Season 25 winner Rachael Kirkconnell is the lead of Season 18 of The Bachelorette. Young's season will premiere after Thurston's season and fans already know who they want on her season.
Thurston made her decision about who to send home and initially decided to keep Smith in the show. However, a few roses down, Mike Planeta walked up to her assuring her that they all were in there for the right reasons and what she heard from Smith might not be the truth. She walked out of the room once again to consult her wing women Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe about what to do next.
Who did Katie Thurston send home on Episode 3?
Upon coming back to the rose ceremony, Thurston gave out the other roses and sent Smith home as well as John Hersey. The latter is a fan favorite with the audiences and him going home did anger fans. "Okay I totally had John in my top 4 and I am SHA-HOCKED that he is gone already! I thought he would at least be top 8! #TheBachelorette" a fan wrote on Twitter after John's elimination. "Wait! You mean Katie let John go? He seemed like a nice guy So much for taste #TheBacheloretteABC #TheBachelorette @BacheloretteABC" another fan tweeted. "Katie did not just send john the sexy bartender home.. the disrespect #TheBachelorette" wrote another fan. "PUT JOHN ON MICHELLE'S SEASON OF #TheBachelorette" read another tweet.
