After making her debut in the 25th season of The Bachelor, Katie Thurston is back but this time she'll be doing the choosing and we have all the details on how you can watch season 17 of The Bachelorette on TV or online.
Just a year after The Bachelor debuted on ABC, the network created a spinoff series called The Bachelorette in 2003 that would give female contestants a chance to do the choosing when it came to finding a husband among 25 bachelors.
While Chris Harrison hosted the show from its first season all the way up to season 16, he has decided to take a step back this season and now former Bachelorettes Taysia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will be doing the honor.
During her time on The Bachelor, Katie made a name for herself by standing up against bullying and negativity in the house which led to fans of the show across America applauding her for speaking up for what she believes. The 30-year-old Washington native will now have her pick of 29 lucky potential suitors as well as one mystery suitor. Following the show's two-hour premiere, there are now only 23 suitors remaining and three will be eliminated each week going forward.
Whether you've been watching the show since it first debuted in 2003 or are a fan of Katie from her time on The Bachelor last year, we'll show you exactly how to watch season 17 of The Bachelorette from anywhere in the world.
