Katie Thurston and John Hersey split up


Katie Thurston and John Hersey are no longer together.

Thurston and Jersey met on Katie’s season of “The Bachelorette” 15 months ago, and they announced their breakup on Instagram.


Although the couple’s relationship did not begin during the series, it blossomed after filming was completed.

Thurston and Hersey met on Thurston’s season of the ABC dating show, but Thurston dumped the bartender during the second rose ceremony of Season 17, which aired in summer 2021.

Thurston went on to marry Blake Moynes by the end of her season, but she also formed an off-screen friendship with Hersey after meeting in San Diego.

Thurston and Moynes announced the end of their engagement in October 2021.

Thurston announced her relationship with Hersey at the end of her “12 Days of Messy” challenge the following month.
