On the heels of Andrew Spencer’s emotional departure, another man said goodbye to Katie Thurston during “The Bachelorette.”
Widower and single dad Michael Allio was one of Katie’s final four going into hometowns. But before the “Men Tell All” special, he abruptly left the competition in reaction to a video call with his son.
“Maybe Daddy left because he don’t want to see me,” his son James said.
The comment forced Michael to go to Katie directly and withdraw from the season.
