THE Bachelor star Katie Thurston has shut down cruel body shamers and insisted they will get an "immediate block."
The fan favorite, who has refused to accept bullying in the house, is a firm favorite to be named the next Bachelorette, and she revealed just why she has become so popular when she defended her friends.
Katie took to Instagram Stories to reveal a mean comment left about a pal on one of her posts.
"Honey you big everywhere from your face all the way down to your feet,” the post read, "I sincerely hope that when gyms reopen, you’re the first one to pop back in."
In response, Katie added: "You don’t get to come on my page and body shame any of my people. Immediate block."
On Monday's episode of the ABC series, Katie revealed she was falling in love with Matt James during a romantic one-on-one only to be sent home in tears after the date.
After a week of drama in the Bachelor mansion – which is a Pennsylvania resort this season – Katie, 29, went on her first solo date.
The pair shared a lot of laughs when they pranked the leading man’s best friend, Tyler Cameron, at the hotel’s spa.
All seemed to be going well, with Matt even exclaiming he was “blown away” by how “incredible” Katie is, however, he admitted he struggled to see a “romantic side” with the Oregon native.
During the evening portion of their one-on-one, the couple sat down at a candlelit dinner before opening up about what they’re looking for in a relationship.
"You’ve been honest with me and I owe the same honesty to you," he told her.
“And the truth is, my relationship with some of the other women in the house has progressed further along than ours has up until this point, and I can't give you this rose tonight.
“And that's not a slight at who you are and what our time's been together.
“I just haven't had those feelings that I need to have for finding a wife in this process,” he added.
Over the weekend, blogger Reality Steve dropped an alleged spoiler about Katie's fate on her journey to find love with Matt on The Bachelor, and her future with the ABC franchise.
He shared: "At the Women Tell All taping this past Thursday, Katie Thurston was announced as the next Bachelorette."
However, he has since claimed the network may be announcing the decision as early as this week.
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8pm E.T. on ABC.
