Katie separated herself from Matt's cast of bachelorettes early on with her raunchy humor and high self-esteem.
Katie, for instance, made jaws drop when she revealed steamy details of what her ideal sex scene with Matt would look like during a group date, and Matt seems to appreciate how Katie is unapologetically herself.
But there's more to Katie than a good laugh. Not only did the bachelorette stand up for Sarah Trott during her time of need on the show, but Katie is also quick to shut down cattiness and gossip when she feels a woman is being wrongfully accused or mistreated.
Katie, for instance, asked Matt to step in and address his group of women after newcomer Brittany Galvin was accused of being an escort, which could potentially ruin Brittany's reputation and career.
Many fans are already rooting for Katie to become the next The Bachelorette star -- but not so fast because she still has a chance to win Matt's heart!
Until viewers can watch more of Katie and Matt's romance unfold on the show, let's learn a little bit about The Bachelor bachelorette right now.
Below is a list of eight facts Reality TV World has compiled about Katie Thurston.
Katie Thurston didn't care if her vibrator got her sent home on Night 1
Although The Bachelor is a family show to some extent, Katie apparently never second-guessed her decision to introduce Matt to her vibrator during her limo entrance.
"[My vibrator entrance] actually summarized me perfectly. Our time is so short so I could do nothing but be myself. I knew Matt is religious and I [didn't] know him personally, so I knew it could send me home Night 1 -- but I would have no regrets," Katie shared with The Bachelorette alums Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin on their Bachelor Happy Hour podcast.

"It really summarizes who I am as a person, my sense of humor, my confidence, my sexual empowerment for females, and I didn't know what to expect when I did my little stunt."
Katie added, "But he laughed and so I just felt, like, this huge weight lifted off of me after that. If you guys saw his laugh, it was the biggest, most genuine laugh. And I was like, 'Alright!'"
Katie has a huge social-media and online presence
Not only does Katie have over 30,000 followers on Instagram, but she has amassed over 244,000 followers on TikTok with her "adult humor" and "comedic entertainment" videos.
Some of Katie's videos feature her joking about d-ck pics and sharing her insight on sexting.
When announcing Matt's cast of bachelorettes in a Facebook Live video, Chris teased of Katie, "I don't know if we've ever had a woman quite like Katie."
"Resident [The Bachelor] Super Fan of the season, Katie makes her presence known... She shows an emotional side too and is super invested in Matt," Chris shared.
"This girl knows everything that's going on all the time with the show. She's the one that would tell me what I'm supposed to be doing at the time."
Chris admitted Katie's knowledge of the show was "helpful" with Matt -- who "had no idea what was happening" -- since Matt had never appeared on The Bachelorette prior to taking on the leading role for Season 25.
Katie took a big risk by choosing to share risque content with her followers
Right before Katie turned 30 years old, she took to Instagram on January 2 to reflect on how she's arrived at this bold stage of her life in which she's exposing her somewhat raunchy humor to the world.
"Life really does pass by quickly. If I died tomorrow, I wouldn't be happy with what I've accomplished. I followed 'the rules' of life. Get the career. Save the money. Start that 401k. Buy the house. And for what? An entire decade to pass without feeling fulfilled?" Katie shared.
"This past year, I finally unapologetically loved who I am. I lost people along the way. And that's ok. We aren't meant to please everyone. What I do know is life is too short to feel unfulfilled. So what fills your heart? What makes you happy? I've enjoyed making people laugh this summer during what felt like a dark time for so many."
Katie continued, "I've enjoyed learning from my diverse community and hearing their stories. You all have taught me so much! I don't know what the future holds for me but I'm excited to bring you all along for the ride! I will passionately pursue a fulfilled life and refuse to let this next decade pass by without purpose."
Katie says she knows exactly what she wants in a partner
Katie insists she's done wasting her time on boys who won't live up to her expectations.
Katie just wants to find a man worth committing to -- a mature and passionate guy with ambition, both personally and professionally, with whom she can laugh and build a long-term future. Katie also wants to be treated like an equal in her relationship.
Katie simply applied to be on Matt's season of The Bachelor and was not nominated.
Katie shared on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, "It's so funny because I joke with my friends, like, I'm not the target version of a contestant because, like, there are so many beautiful women, there are supermodels who are on this show."
"And in The Bachelor world, I am considered 'older.' And so, when I was cast, I was actually pretty shocked. I was kind of in denial, even getting ready for it."
On why she believes producers selected her, Katie explained, "I was just my 100 percent self and I guess they found that pretty refreshing. I had no filter; I didn't hide anything... I was like, 'Let's go with it!'"
Katie said going on The Bachelor during the coronavirus pandemic was "the perfect opportunity to date somebody."
"I've been locked up and online dating sucks! It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet someone like Matt," Katie added. "And I went with it."
