“Bachelorette” Katie Thurston could be wearing her heart right on her wrist … as some eagle-eyed fans recently spotted that the 30-year-old marketing manager seems to be wearing contestant Greg Grippo’s bracelet during a group date on Monday night’s episode, which could be an indirect message about her feelings.
One Twitter user shared screengrabs of Thurston and Grippo wearing strikingly similar wood beaded bracelets at different points in the episode, writing, “Katie is wearing Greg’s bracelet. It’s game over boys!,”
Another added, “Is Katie wearing Greg’s bead bracelet? Do they have the same one? Did he give her one? I need to know,” while another wrote, “Katie wore Greg’s bracelet for the group date after party, just end the season now it’s over for everyone else.”

Not minding the pair’s on-screen alone time, some fans also speculated that the accessory could possibly belong to a different contestant: Hunter Montgomery.
Montgomery, 34, appears to have confirmed the speculations as true after it liked an Instagram comment from Justin Takes the Bach which says, “It’s been brought to my attention that the bracelet could also belong to @hmontgomery. He’s wearing the bracelet in his casting headshot. Take a look at his profile to see the pic!!!!!”
If the two men are sharing the same bracelet, it would hardly be the first time the franchise’s stars have swapped styles: During Hannah Brown’s season of “The Bachelorette,” multiple suitors famously appeared to share the same salmon jacket.
Though she’s yet to comment on what fans are saying, Kate Thurston recently spoke out about her own style philosophy and clapped back at people who are criticizing her fashion and beauty choices.
“Anyone who wants to message me about my part, or my fashion or lack thereof, I’m just gonna block you. I’ve said it before, and I’m gonna say it again: It’s not about the wrapping paper, it’s the gift inside. And that’s what I am — a f—king gift. So this doesn’t matter,” she said referring to her dress style.
