For those thirsting to see what all the buzz is about, fear no more, because a new season of “The Bachelorette” will air Monday, June 7, at 8 pm Eastern time and Pacific time, with Katie Thurston front and center as the show’s lead.
As usual, web sleuth Reality Steve dug up some of the season’s major drama, including what will go down during the premiere, who we can expect as this season’s villain, and which singles are lucky enough to make it to Thurston’s final four.
Read on, but beware of spoilers for this season of “The Bachelorette”.
‘The Bachelorette’ 2021 Villain Has Been Revealed
Tonight, not only will the season’s villain reveal himself, but familiar face Blake Moynes will also make his entrance early on this season, as Us Weekly has reported. And, according to Reality Steve, Moynes makes it to the final four.
On Sunday, June 6, 2021 Reality Steve revealed Moynes makes it to the hometown dates, along with Justin Glaze, Andrew Spencer, and Grippo.
Moynes was a contestant on “The Bachelorette” with Tayshia Adams and Clare Crawley.
According to Reality Steve, the villain this season is Thomas Jacobs. Reality Steve reported, “Basically, he’s the guy that ruffles some feathers early on with the other guys. I believe he gets an early rose, thus making him look like an early favorite, that quickly wears out his welcome with some of the others…”
What do we know about Jacobs?
The California native works in sales for Zillow.
His Zillow bio reveals that he is a former collegiate athlete at the University of San Diego, and has “excelled” both in his community and in his professional real estate career.
The bio continues, “He credits his success tracing back to his upbringing in a military household and life long love of competing in athletics. These molded his principles of discipline, integrity and an unrivaled work ethic that directly bring value to his clients through his passion to work above and beyond, around the clock to satisfy any specific needs regarding your real estate journey.”
Zillow writes that in his spare time, Thomas enjoys “spending time with his family including his two dogs, being active, enjoying the San Diego sunshine, and volunteering to coach youth basketball.”
The First Impression Rose
When it comes to the first impression rose of the season, that goes to Greg Grippo.
Some digging into Grippo’s life and social media has revealed that he is 27 and works as a marketing sales representative, according to ScreenRant.
Cosmopolitan added that he graduated from Saint Michael’s College in 2018 with a degree in Business Administration Management.
The outlet stated, “When it comes to dating, Greg is a hopeless romantic who loves a first date that involves something active, such as riding bikes, dancing, or going to a concert. Once he finds his person (possibly Katie, who wowed her suitors in her night one gown), Greg wants to travel and discover the world with his wife.”
The contestants who get eliminated on night 1 of the new season of “The Bachelorette” have not all yet been released. However, we know that Jeff Caravello, Brandon Torres, and Thomas Jacobs were among those sent home.
