Katie Thurston buzzed her way into The Bachelorette’s season premiere last night as our new leading lady, where she, surprisingly, didn’t break out her signature accoutrement of choice: A well-charged, candy-colored vibrator. (You’ll recall that she debuted the accessory during last season’s Bachelor, where she was friend-zoned by Matt James early on.) Swinging by Jimmy Kimmel Live! for a post-premiere debriefing, Thurston revealed that she often gets sent unsolicited sexy devices from … fans? … and it’s gotten to the point where she had to enlist extra delivery space.
“People send me enough vibrators to last me a lifetime now. I literally pay people to watch my cat in vibrators. I don’t know what to do with all of them,” she explained. “I have a P.O. box strictly for that.” She added about her collection, “When girlfriends come over I open the box and I’m like, ‘Here you go, take your pick.’” We have a feeling that the Strategist will get her on the phone for a roundup soon.
