'The Bachelorette' fans root for 'crying' Greg Grippo to be next lead on 'The Bachelor'
Greg might be struggling to win Katie's heart, but he's definitely won fans over!
Another week, another rose -- with each passing episode, the contestants on 'The Bachelorette' seem to be falling hard and fast for Katie Thurston, even though they all know that it's only one of them who can win her over.
In this episode, the contestants played a game of 'Bachelor Bash Ball', a cross between football and basketball. While Hunter Montgomery pulled out all the stops to get closer to Katie, there seems to be a close friendship brewing between Greg Grippo and Micheal Allio!
'The Bachelorette' 2021 Spoiler: Katie Thurston hints at engagement with Blake Moynes
Post the game, Micheal A revealed that he had been married before and that his wife had passed away. He spoke about how it taught him that our time on earth is finite and hence it was essential to live every day like it's your last. Greg, who has become good friends with his fellow contestant, was moved, seeing that Micheal A is always smiling and cheerful, despite having dealt with such a tragedy. As Micheal A teared up while talking about his late wife, Greg couldn't help but tear up too, as his heart went out for his friend.
Turns out, Greg's sensitive side tugged on fans' heartstrings too! "The bachelorette viewers after seeing greg tear up after hearing micheal a's story #thebachelorette" tweeted a fan. "I'm crying because Greg is crying because Michael is crying #TheBachelorette #BacheloretteABC #bachelorette," said a fan.
"This is my formal invitation for Greg from the Bachelorette to come over so I can make him dinner. He deserves support and desserts" proposed another. "Greg is the purest soul on the planet, i'm literally sobbing #bachelorette #BacheloretteABC" said a user "Me if Greg doesn't make it to the end. #Bachelorette," added another.
