It’s over: The Bachelorette #17 Katie Thurston and her former contestant John Hersey both confirmed they just ended their seven-month, live-in romance

‘I love being able to share special moments with you all – the funny ones. The happy ones. The outrageous, embarrassing, and heartfelt ones. But I don’t know if it will ever get easier to share the sad ones,’ John – who boasts 117K Instagram/TikTok followers – wrote.

‘As Katie stated earlier, we are no longer dating. The decision was not made lightly and it was obviously not an easy one to make. I appreciate every one of you that has supported us throughout this journey. We could not (and would not) be here without you.’

Thurston and Hersey were last pictured together on June 2 walking her cat Tommy and his Italian Greyhound Dexter through LA’s Runyon Canyon Park.

‘A year ago I’d never believe I would be right here in these moments with you,’ Katie gushed on March 10 – the one-year anniversary of their meeting. ‘Sorry to all the Bachelor brackets we f***ed up. We owe you one.’

The Washington State alum previously ended her engagement to the Santa Cruz-born, San Diego-based daredevil’s rival contestant Blake Moynes on October 25 after six months of dating.

Katie – who previously competed on The Bachelor #25 – famously eliminated John in the second week of her season but announced they were dating November 23.

Only four winning couples remain together after 18 seasons of The Bachelorette and three winning couples are still together after 26 seasons of The Bachelor.

Bachelor in Paradise has the best track record of the Bachelor Nation franchise with 11 winning couples still together after seven seasons.
