Bachelorette Katie Breaks Down as One of Her Final 4 Walks Away

This led her to reply, “I know it would have worked.” She then told him, “As selfish as I want to be, and I want to beg you to stay, I just know that’s not an option.”

Katie shed plenty of tears before Michael made his way outside, with the Bachelorette later telling the camera, “Michael is someone I saw myself walking away with. I knew what my life would be if I chose Michael, and that was a life I wanted. I know his decision is the best decision for his family, but right now, in this moment, it f–king hurts, and in this moment, I am mad. I am sad. All I’m looking for is to be in love and find my person, and it’s very possible that my person just left.”

The standout from Matt James’ season of The Bachelor has yet to address the surprise exit on social media. For his part, Michael posted a sweet photo to Instagram over the weekend of James resting his head on his shoulder, adding the caption, “Saturday night milkshake run wit my #1.”
