Katie Thurston made 'The Bachelor' Season 25 fun as she stepped out of the limousine. Her introduction was seen as a gimmick by many as she brought with herself a purple vibrator she wished to use until she made it to the fantasy suite date with Matt James. But there was also a huge section on the Internet who lauded her for her sex-positive attitude. She was an instant hit with the audience in no time and her popularity soared with how she handled the Sarah Trott situation. 

Thurston became the poster girl for people who stood up against bullying and she was lauded by James as well as the entire Bachelor Nation fans who were watching from home. She didn't make it till the end of the season but her journey was just not over yet.
