Last week, fans were stunned when frontrunner Greg Grippo had a meltdown and left the show.

This is just the first of two Bachelorette seasons this year, since Katie will be followed by Michelle Young in the fall. Both vied for roses from Matt James in The Bachelor, with Michelle finishing as the runner-up and Katie exiting in 11th place.
