Who did Katie send home?
After saying she's done with drama and relationships that are less serious, Katie hands out six roses (including one given to Justin earlier on their one-on-one date) and sends home Aaron, James, Tre and, yes, Hunter.

Who is Connor on The Bachelorette?

In case you haven’t been paying any attention whatsoever to Brendan while he’s been on TV, here’s a little bit about his personality (plus what he’s looking for in a relationship) from whoever’s tasked with writing ABC’s slightly unhinged contestant bios:
“Brendan is the type of guy who always enjoys life to the fullest. He is currently in the process of becoming a full-time firefighter. Brendan takes a lot of pride over this goal and is excited to make a positive difference in his community. While Brendan’s professional life is exactly where he wants it, he still dreams of adding a little fire to his personal life. In his partner, Brendan is looking for good back-and-forth banter, a sense of adventure, and an open mind. He has no specific deal breakers but says that he loves being clean and organized and hopes to find a woman who feels the same. He is a straight shooter and says that nothing makes him happier than putting a smile on the face of the woman he loves. Brendan says he is in a great spot in his life to go on this journey and try and find his perfect match!”
Not professionally or anything, but hockey is definitely one of his hobbies. Brendan actually chatted about this in his Bachelorette intro, saying his dad wanted him to pursue a career in hockey (Canada, eh), but ultimately, he didn’t love it enough and decided to put his time and effort into being a firefighter.
Reality Steve reported this news way back when Katie’s season was first being cast, and there are actually pictures of Blake Moynes on Brendan’s Insta. Like, it looks as though they straight-up play on a hockey team together? Curious!
Sorry to break this news to all you Brendan fans, but our dude does not win Katie’s season. In fact, he doesn’t even make it to the final four. Major spoiler, but Katie’s actual winner? That’d be Brendan’s buddy Blake. Kinda makes you think what could have happened if he didn’t join the show, huh!
At least, not as far as we know (ABC will be adding more contestants to the mix, so stay tuned). Which means this could be the last time you ever see Brendan on reality TV again. That is, unless ABC decides to make him their next Bachelor, which...I guess could happen?
Anyway, here’s a look at who is going on Bachelor in Paradise, in case you’re curious!
Drop everything you’re doing, because ABC just released a list of 19 names who will appear in the upcoming seventh season of Bachelor in...

Longtime Bachelorette fans are hoping Katie Thurston’s season ends with an engagement. But whatever happens, it looks like we’re in for another wild ride. Katie recently hinted that her Bachelorette finale isn’t traditional. So here’s what the lead revealed about her ending.
“I just know where I’m at in life, and it really shows how serious I am about falling in love and finding my person,” Katie told Us Weekly before the start of her season. “And if the thought of being engaged scares you, then you’re not ready to be with me.”
Then as The Bachelorette Season 17 continued, Katie took charge of her journey, and she didn’t want to play games. Every time a new villain popped up on the show, Katie chose to eliminate them. But is “here for the right reasons” enough to find happily ever after? We’ll have to wait and see.
Whether Katie gets her happy ending in The Bachelorette Season 17 finale, it looks like the final episode will be completely unexpected.
“I will say the journey ended in the most unexpected way,” Katie told Glamour in June 2021. “I think this is a first, definitely, in various ways, so you guys will just have to find out what that means.”
Then when speaking on The Viall Files podcast, Katie confirmed her Bachelorette finale wrapped filming early, and her ending is untraditional.
“I’ll confirm it,” Katie said of her short season. “The end gets crazy. It’s not traditional at all, and I’m like, ‘What the f— is happening?’ That’s all I’ll say. But it gets crazy.”
Katie’s season of The Bachelorette finished filming back in April 2021. So the new lead has had some time to reflect. Then when speaking on Good Morning America, Katie revealed the one thing she learned on her journey.
“I need to loosen up,” Katie said. “I love having control. And in this, you don’t. Once you finally let go of that, that’s when the greatness starts to happen.”
Katie also alluded to this in an interview on Chicks in the Office. The bachelorette noted that she was “pretty confident” until the “very end” of her journey.
“But then, the ways things happened, I could never have predicted,” Katie said.
Nevertheless, it seems Katie finds the road to happiness in the very end.
“Overall, I am very happy,” Katie said. “Everything happens for a reason.”
The Bachelorette Season 17 airs Monday nights on ABC.

He’s the sweetest guy ever.
Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette is somehow already half over, and tonight she’ll be cutting five (5!!!) of her remaining contestants. Which is kinda huge news considering that only Greg, Mike P., Aaron, Connor B., James, Michael A., Justin, Brendan, Hunter, Andrew S., Tre, and Blake are left. At this point in the season, we’ve gotten to know these dudes pretty well (at least, the ones who have gotten one-on-one dates!), but it’s time to go a little deeper with 26-year-old software engineer Tre Cooper!
We learned this in his ABC bio, which makes it clear that Tre is a family man, through and through.
Side note: We also know that Tre’s favorite thing to do is meet his friends for brunch and book club, so he might literally be the perfect human.
Tre is clearly very close to his family, including his mom:
Remember Thomas? Yeah, Katie already sent him packing for wanting to go on The Bachelorette for the WRONG REASONS, and Tre was one of the men to call him out—telling Katie that he is manipulative and just wants to be the next Bachelor. Katie ended up appreciating Tre’s honesty, and obvi, he got a rose.
Katie also talked about how impressed she was with Tre during an unaired moment. Speaking on Nick Viall’s podcast, she said, “One thing that I wish was shown that was kind of like the nail in the coffin for me was he was kind of mean to Tre. And Tre is like the most kind-hearted man, you know? So once I heard that, I was like, if you can’t handle conversations—I’ve already experienced it firsthand. Like you aren’t able to communicate in a normal, effective way. Now you’re being mean to Tre who is like a sweetheart....I don’t have time to waste and so I was like, ‘You gotta go.’”
Hunter is ABC’s new “villain,” and he got some major sh*t last week from his fellow contestants for stealing time with Katie when he already had a rose. And among the men who confronted Hunter was Tre, who called him out for co-opting time with Katie when he was safe and other people’s love was on the line. Here’s how the whole thing went down in case you missed it:
Bummer! So...who does? That’d be Blake Moynes, Greg Grippo, Andrew Spencer, and Justin Glaze. Her winner? Blake!
Oh, and FYI, it also doesn’t look like Tre is a contestant on the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise, but that could change (ABC might just not have announced him yet since he’s still competing on The Bachelor!).
