Production was ‘divided’ on choosing Katie as The Bachelorette

While a production source exclusively told The Sun execs are aware many viewers will find Katie’s sexuality and humor “strong and powerful,” there is concern over how conservative fans will respond. 

“Production was divided on selecting Katie as The Bachelorette, it was not unanimous,” the insider revealed. 

The source continued: “Some producers realize the show needs a strong, sexually confident woman who will put a man in his place if he needs to be, similar to Hannah Brown. 

“And that’s who Katie has appeared to be. They want another Hannah Brown and Katie ticks the boxes and then some.

Matt James did not have feelings in return for Katie and she was sent home

“On the other hand, The Bachelor is still a family show at the end of the day. ABC and production can be conservative, which is why religion and virginity are often a focus. 

“And unlike Hannah, not only has Katie shown up to filming with a huge dildo, she has made TikTok’s cleaning her face with sex toys, talking about shitting her pants and talking about having sex with ghosts.”

The source added that Katie is “great, she’s confident but she’s a wildcard. 

“There’s no saying how the general Bachelor audience will react. It’s a gamble but it looks like with current social conversation the way it is, production will take the risk.”

Following the show, Hannah went on to win the DWTS Mirror Ball trophy

Hannah Brown became The Bachelorette in 2019 after appearing on Colton Underwood’s season.

Despite fan backlash, Hannah, 26, was chosen for the lead and the season went on to have record-high ratings

The outspoken Alabama native also became the highest-followed Bachelorette in history on social media after scoring the Mirror Ball trophy on Dancing With The Stars.

Katie’s TikTok’s have been viewed by production, the source claimed, as contestants’ social media is “heavily vetted before and during the season, sometimes even after depending on who.”

The social media sensation put a liquid on the sex toy before spreading it on her face

“Producers have seen all of Katie’s videos and they are not shaming her in anyway, but there is some concern about how many of the Bachelor viewers will respond to that kind of talk. 

“Some will see it as strong and funny or even normal, some will see it as vulgar,” the informant added. 

The source alleged Katie has already agreed to become the next Bachelorette but that it’s possible – as seen with past seasons – the network will change its mind.

The reality star admitted to desiring ‘sex with a ghost’

“Nothing is locked in 100% until it’s announced publicly, that’s the way contracts on the show have always worked. Nothing has been filmed yet for Katie. 

“They have not done any promo shots or pre-recorded packages. But as of right now, yes, The Bachelorette will be Katie,” the insider claimed. 

In a series of videos on Katie’s TikTok accounts, she went great detail about once “s***ting her pants” at her place of work – a financial firm in Seattle.

The brunette bombshell has been praised for her openness regarding sexuality

She also gave a tutorial on how to give an “intense” and “pleasurable” face massage with a vibrator that’s part of her “nightly routine.”

Another video that went viral late last year boasted about how Katie desires “f**king a ghost” as she “hadn’t had action in months.” 

However, much of Bachelor Nation have praised Katie’s outspoken sense of humor, “maturity” and “strong sense of sexuality.”

Last week, Reality Steve first reported the rumors that the brunette beauty was chosen to become The Bachelorette. 

Katie – whom fans said was the “voice of reason” this season – was sent home by Matt, 28, due to not feeling “chemistry’ during a one-on-one date this week.

ABC has not yet officially announced next season’s lead and did not return The Sun’s request for comment.
