Bachelor's Katie Thurston rumored to be the next Bachelorette after fans applaud her for confronting 'bullies' on show

KATIE Thurston is rumored to be the next Bachelorette.

The speculation comes as fans applaud the reality TV contestant for confronting "bullies" on the show.

Reality Steve shared a spoiler about Katie's fate on her journey to find love with Matt James on The Bachelor, as well as her future with the ABC franchise.

The Twitter account shared: "At the 'Women Tell All' taping this past Thursday, Katie Thurston was announced as the next 'Bachelorette.'"

The tweet also revealed: "Katie gets eliminated on Monday’s episode during her 1-on-1 with Matt."

Katie first got the attention of Bachelor Nation when she showed up on night one by greeting Matt with a vibrator.

While first approaching the 29-year-old leading man, Katie said of her vibrator: “This got me through a lot of alone time this year." 

The 30-year-old is a bank marketing manager from Renton, Washington.

According to her ABC bio, The Bachelor contestant knows "exactly what she wants in a man and is done wasting her time on boys who won't live up to her expectations."

Katie is described as "the most loving and committed partner anyone could ask for."

She quickly became a Bachelor fan favorite, as fans have praised her for her frankness, openness and self-awareness on the dating competition show.

During a recent episode, Katie approached Matt and informed him of “bullying” going on with the group.

She told him that contestant Anna Redman started a rumor that Brittany Galvin is an escort. 

After Matt sent Anna home, he set his target on Victoria, 28.

While Katie warned Matt about "Queen" Victoria's bullying, it was his conversation with newbie Ryan that persuaded the star to send Victoria home.

Shortly after Matt learned that Victoria was bullying the five new women vying for his heart, the controversial contestant was eliminated.

Fans have also applauded Katie for her openness both on and off the show.

On her 30th birthday, she uploaded a picture to Instagram and explained how she was taking more chances in life as she got older.

"Life really does pass by quickly. … I followed 'the rules' of life. Get the career. Save the money. Start that 401k. Buy the house. And for what? An entire decade to pass without feeling fulfilled?" she said.

"This past year, I finally unapologetically loved who I am. I lost people along the way. And that's OK."
