What a comeback.
While she initially sent John home on night one of her 2021 season, Katie surprised fans when she revealed they were dating—just one month after announcing the end of her engagement to Blake Moynes.
“Katie and John were mutually in the friend zone for months,” a source told E! News at the time. “It’s been wild but exciting for those closest to them to witness.”
The pair broke up in June 2022, with John saying on his Instagram Story, “The decision was not made lightly and it was obviously not an easy one to make.” Katie later revealed John “dumped” her and that they had broken up several times before splitting for good.
“Technically, we actually broke up twice,” she shared on the Off the Vine podcast. “The first time no one knew about. I mean, obviously, our very close friends did. And maybe like a week or two, we kind of worked through it and decided to get back together, so I thought we were golden.”
She continued, “I think it was just unavoidable. We just got on a conversation and at one point, I just said to him, ‘I know more reasons why you don’t like me than why you love me.’ And that’s a really s—ty feeling, you know?”
