When asked to explain her dream guy, Katie shared with Us, "[I'm] looking for a mature man who can handle himself [and] understand what he signed up for, which is you're sharing a girlfriend right now and do the best that they can."
Katie said on the show she doesn't have a "type" physically and is typically drawn to a man's personality.
Based on a preview of what's to come on Katie's season, Katie made it known to her bachelors that she wanted to leave the show with an engagement. Katie has insisted she was serious about finding love and ending up with her future husband.
In a preview that aired during The Bachelorette premiere, Katie stood in front of her group of men and shouted, "If you are not here for me, if you are not here for an engagement, then get the f-ck out!"
Katie insisted it's "absolutely" possible to love more than one person at one time.
"I think there are different types of love. That's what I had to remind myself at the end of the day, is that I'm looking for that one who is forever and my one and only," Katie explained.
Ryan therefore asked Katie if she had found "lasting love" on the show.
Katie smiled, shrugged her shoulders and replied, "That has yet to be determined!"
Katie's entire The Bachelorette season was taped at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico with quarantine and COVID-19 safety measures in place.
Filming began on March 22, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, and wrapped about a week "ahead of schedule" on April 24 because Katie was reportedly a decisive Bachelorette who meant business.
