According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, The Bachelorette's upcoming season is in production at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico, where the show's cast and crew will remain all season long amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
"I'm ready to find love, and not just, like, the temporary kind. I'm talking forever, my husband, and I'm in a place in my life where I feel like I'm the best version of me," Katie said during the special.
"Honestly, I've seen this work before; why can't it work for me?"
Katie was eliminated from Matt's season before hometown dates but made a lasting impression on Matt and viewers with her raunchy humor.
