Is Katie's Bracelet A Major 'Bachelorette' Spoiler?

Some of us hate Bachelor and Bachelorette spoilers, avoiding Reality Steve like it's that ex who won't stop texting us cat memes as if that will make us respond. (I saw that one already on r/animalsbeingderps, Chad.) But it seems on Bachelorette's second episode, the spoiler might have been right under our noses. Or, at least, on our star's wrists, more specifically. Because it appeared as though Katie was wearing Greg's bracelet during her group date, raising the eyebrows of all of Bachelor Nation.

Prior to Katie's second group date, we watched Katie's one-on-one with Greg go anywhere but down the toilet (the most intimate of make-out spots), ending with literal and figurative fireworks. And then we watched Katie struggle to bond with a group of men who seemed like they had their heart in a very wrong place.

But, despite the very different tone between the two dates, there was one thing both had in common: a bracelet. Quite specifically, Greg's bracelet. And eagle-eyed viewers are all over it.

So, OK: Katie and Greg had the same bracelet on. There are a few reasons why this might have happened:

  • It's possible that Greg and Katie own the exact same bracelet.
  • It's also possible that Katie left her date with Greg inspired, in the sartorial sense.
  • It's possible that Katie slipped it on her own wrist during the date, only to forget to take it off between wardrobe changes due to a tight production schedule, but, c'mon, where's your sense of romance?

What's more likely is that Greg gifted her the bracelet, its meaning lingering in Katie's heart and on her wrist straight into her next date.

It also wouldn't be the first time a bracelet told the story of a Bachelor inevitability. Back during Nick Viall's season, fans noticed that the Bachelor was seen wearing a bracelet he got during a date with Vanessa Grimaldi, whether or not he was with the eventual winner.

Greg already has frontrunner status, being the recipient of the first impression rose and the first one-on-one date, so it would be no surprise if Katie felt more connected with him than the other men. But is this a subtle sign that Katie has her heart set?

Time for Connor B. to swoop in and gift Katie a collar.
