Katie’s unconventional journey — which was cohosted by Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe after Chris Harrison stepped down amid controversy — featured many twists and turns. Blake’s late arrival, for example, threw some contestants for a loop, but Katie never wavered on their strong connection.
Katie made it clear that she was confident she’d found The One — despite some fans’ skepticism about their connection.
“I think everyone can agree that this is exactly who I was supposed to be with,” she noted during After the Final Rose special. “He fought to be here for me and chose to stay even when I’m telling him to his face that I considered leaving. That he was confident enough to hold both of us till the end, I’m just so lucky. I love him so much.”
Katie announced in October 2021 that the pair had called it quits just months after fans watched her proposal play out on TV.
