Season 17 of The Bachelorette kicked off on Monday night. Katie Thurston began her journey to love on the ABC reality show. To celebrate, she stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! where Jimmy Kimmel predicted the final four contestants and a winner.
While every season of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette is billed as the most dramatic one yet, season 17 should be an interesting one. Chris Harrison has stepped down from his duties as host, replaced by Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe.
Thurston was a contestant on season 25 of The Bachelor. She comes to the show with a built-in fanbase thanks in part to her openness and candor.
However, on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Thurston had to play things close to the chest. Jimmy Kimmel showed his picks for the final four and predicted a winner as Thurston looked on and tried to hide her reactions.
Jimmy Kimmel puts his The Bachelorette winning streak on the line
According to Kimmel, the final four will be Andrew S., Justin, Connor B. (aka The Cat Guy), and Greg. The late night host also says that Greg will ultimately be the one holding the final rose as Katie Thurston’s pick.
And while Kimmel is the one presenting these picks, fans of the show know who is the real brains behind the operation. Kimmel’s wife, Molly McNearney, makes the Bachelor and Bachelorette picks each season.
She has a very impressive streak going so fans of The Bachelorette should pay close attention to McNearney’s final four. Her picks have come true far more often than she’s been wrong. So if you’re in a Bachelorette fantasy league or making bets, you may want to keep an eye on Greg and the other three picks.
