Katie Thurston drops major clue about Bachelor in Paradise Season 9 cast
Bachelorette Katie Thurston dropped a major clue about who may be joining the Season 9 cast of BIP. She did an Instagram Q&A and told fans to ask her anything and she’d be brutally honest. One fan asked her if she is heading to the beach this summer. Her response has Bachelor Nation in a buzz. She said, “There are enough leads going already.”
Now the speculation begins. Dave Neal went to YouTube to weigh in on who he thinks Katie could be talking about. Overall, his top three picks of who he thinks is likely to be there are Pilot Pete Weber, Rachel Recchia and Michelle Young. Again, this is just speculation.
Dave also shared thoughts from another source the PositivelyUncensored TikTok account. She claims to know multiple Bachelor alums who have been at least invited to go to Mexico.
There is no confirmation if this is true. However, she seems pretty positive that the individuals listed were invited to the beach. Some of the men she shared are Nayte Olukoya, Nate Mitchell, Jordan V., Johnny DePhillipo, Aven, Clayton Echard, Tyler Norris, Jacob and Meatball or James.
The women she listed as possibilities for the beach are Christina Mandrell, Rachel Recchia, Michelle Young, Kylie Russell, Kat Izzo, Genevieve Parisi, Davia Esther and Sonia Sharma.
Which of these do you think will be seen on Bachelor in Paradise this summer? It seems likely that Becca Kufrin set a precedence and more leads will start showing up on the beach looking for love.
the kettle has been off the burner for a while but the tea is slowly starting to simmer 🫖 this is just what i’ve been hearing as far as who is invited so far so let’s see 👀 • • #bachelorready #bachelorinparadise #bachelorinparadise2022 #bachelornation #bachelornationabc #bachelornews #bachelornation🌹 #thebachelor #thebachelorette #thebachelorabc #bachelornationabc #paradise #pilotrachel #realitytvshow #realitytvshow

Would Katie ever consider going to Paradise?
Katie Thurston revealed on an episode of Driving with Dave that it would take a lot to get her on the beach. In fact, she said if they offered her $25,000 she would consider it. Dave also made a good point about Becca Kufrin finding the love of her life in Paradise. Katie did agree with that. She also countered by saying Blake Horstmann met the love of his life on a different reality television show.
So, Katie seems to think she is done with the Bachelor franchise. However, she is open to other reality shows.
