29 charming men (and one mystery box) will join Thurston on her romantic journey when season 17 starts June 7, 2021 on ABC!
Katie Thurston is kicking off a summer of romance on season 17 of "The Bachelorette," and she has 29 eligible men, and one unidentified suitor in a mystery box, vying for her heart.
After appearing on the historic 25th season of "The Bachelor," Thurston instantly became a fan favorite after her buzzworthy limo entrance. The 30-year-old Washington native continued to be a leading voice in the house as she stood up against bullying and negativity throughout the season.
The season 17 contestants range from ages 25 to 36. Prior to the premiere, fans can get acquainted with the contestants via The Bachelorette's Instagram page, where the show is posting fun facts about the men. A mystery box represents the final contestant in the running for Thurston's heart, which fans can see in the season promo.
After the first evening, 23 lucky bachelors will continue their journey with Thurston.
Former Bachelorettes Kaitlyn Bristowe and Tayshia Adams will co-host this season and guide Thurston through the romantic journey of a lifetime.
Season 17 of "The Bachelorette" premieres Monday, June 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT | 7 p.m. CT on ABC.
