Thomas appears to be a frontrunner and Katie seems smitten by his charm and good looks, but the other bachelors at the New Mexico resort are questioning Thomas' intentions and true motivation behind competing for Katie's heart.
While Thomas insisted he is developing real feelings for Katie -- and is even falling in love with her -- he admitted to going on the show for the platform and to boost his career.
Thomas also admitted on the latest episode he thought about potentially becoming The Bachelor's Season 26 star in 2022 when signing up for The Bachelorette's seventeenth season.
Aaron Clancy vented in a confessional after Thomas interrupted his alone time with Katie, "I find his behavior disturbing... At this point, I think Thomas is a cancer and I think he needs to be cut out until he's absolutely gone."
Aaron also called Thomas a "manipulative psychopath" and "sociopath," and many of the other guys viewed Thomas as a liar who acted fake with Katie, as if he had some type of campaign to drive.
It appears drama is going to come to a head in the next episode and Katie's bachelors will hold Thomas accountable for his actions.
So will Katie determine that Thomas is at fault or take his side as the other men gang up on him?
