On her 30th birthday, she uploaded a picture to Instagram and explained how she was taking more chances as she got older.
“Life really does pass by quickly. … I followed ‘the rules’ of life. Get the career. Save the money. Start that 401k. Buy the house. And for what? An entire decade to pass without feeling fulfilled? ” she said.
“This past year, I finally unapologetically loved who I am. I lost people along the way. And that’s OK,”
Is Katie on TikTok?
Katie has amassed a large TikTok following of 250,000 fans.
She went viral last year with a clip describing the time she pooped her pants at work.
Katie is equally loved on The Bachelor for being unapologetically herself.
During a conversation with Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin on the “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast in January, Katie spoke about being sex-positive on the show.
“It was the perfect statement for 2020,” she joked of her meme-worthy vibrator debut.
“It actually summarized me perfectly … and I could do nothing but be myself. I knew Matt is religious, I know I don’t know him personally, so I knew it could very well send me home night one. And I would have no regrets.”
Will Katie be the next Bachelorette?
Bachelor Nation has praised Katie for her frankness, openness and self-awareness on the program.

According to her ABC bio, her idea of a fun date is going skinny-dipping.
Despite her colorful personality, Katie does not get as much screen time as the other girls on Matt’s season of The Bachelor.
Her connection with Matt seems likely to wane, which could jeopardize her chances of reappearing as The Bachelorette.
She may be more suited as a Bachelor in Paradise contestant, adding her signature commentary while finding her potential love match.
