BACHELORETTE Katie Thurston revealed she "falls in love more than once" and "has SEX in the Fantasy Suites" this season.
The new season of The Bachelorette is set to air tonight – marking this as the first time that host Chris Harrison doesn't appear in the show.
During today's episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, Katie gave a glimpse into what fans can expect in the new season of The Bachelorette.
"I was scared that there wasn't going to be anyone for me," the 30-year-old reality TV star told the hosts, Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest.
"I fell in love more than once. I'm looking for that ever lasting love."
Katie made similar comments to Entertainment Tonight, where she further revealed she got down and dirty with some of her hopeful matches.
"Nothing’s off-limits this season," she said.
"Love is love, and I gotta do what I gotta do.
"I have sex in the fantasy suites, so you heard it here first. We all know it happens, but no one’s talking about it!"
Katie's glimpses into the new season come after The Sun revealed that executives are worried she will give away too much before the season actually airs.
Katie’s frequent social media activity mixed with her strong personality has raised concerns for the ABC execs as they try to avoid another scandal heading into this season, a source told The Sun.
The insider explained: ”Execs are on edge going into this season understandably. There's a lack of control with Katie they have not felt with previous Bachelorette's.
“She's outspoken and very active on social media plus with recent drama, they are being more careful than ever with how they conduct things.”
According to the source, “They're concerned her social media will reveal too much about the season or even worse, her activity will get her into trouble.”
“Katie's always posting about herself and saying little things here and there about her season and the guys.
“The last thing anyone on the show wants is another scandal, especially with the lead. But Katie has been posting more than any other lead and it's getting out of hand.”
The informant alleged that Katie has been “warned” by an exec to “tone it down” when the show begins airing – which she “agreed to do.”
In the past week, the newest Bachelorette has tweeted several times about her group of contestants.
“Already having dreams about my exes showing up to Bach In Paradise,” she wrote of the Summer spinoff.
She then posted the children’s game, Operation, and said: “Creeping on your exes social media is the adult version of Operation.”
In a third tweet, the Washington native claimed she was “Kissin’ Katie” this season while a lengthy series of messages defended her group of male suitors.
She gushed of her men: “As I reminisce about my journey to find love, I can’t help but get in my feels. You all are about to meet an incredible group of men with fascinating stories to tell.
“The vulnerability & strength these men show throughout our time together is something I’ll cherish forever. They hold a special place in my heart, I’m protective of them.
“I remember being on their side. In the public eye for the first time. Reading what people thought. Pls remember to stay kind.You only get to see a glimpse of how extraordinary they are.”
Back in February, a source exclusively revealed to The Sun that execs felt they are "taking a risk" with the "wildcard" contestant being the new lead due to her "vulgar" behavior.
Katie made a wild entrance when she arrived at Matt's season of The Bachelor carrying a large pink dildo and went viral for a TikTok boasting of desires to have “sex with a ghost.”
While a production source exclusively told The Sun execs are aware many viewers will find Katie’s sexuality and humor “strong and powerful,” there is concern over how conservative fans will respond.
The insider explained: “The Bachelor is still a family show at the end of the day. ABC and production can be conservative, which is why religion and virginity are often a focus.
"Not only has Katie shown up to filming with a huge dildo, she has made TikTok’s cleaning her face with sex toys, talking about sh***ting her pants and talking about having sex with ghosts.”
The source added that Katie is “great, she’s confident but she’s a wildcard.
“There’s no saying how the general Bachelor audience will react. It’s a gamble but it looks like with current social conversation the way it is, production will take the risk.”
The Bachelorette premieres on Monday, June 7 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
