While speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Nick teased what happens to Thomas in The bachelorette Season 17, Episode 3. The former bachelor noted that the contestant was “very charming”. However, Nick asked what Thomas was really thinking during the group’s date.
âTo me just listening to Thomas he sounded like a guy who was very ‘on’,â Nick said. “The things that came out of his mouth looked more like platitudes than things he really thought and felt.”
He added, âIt was pretty clear that Thomas hadn’t had a lot of one-on-one time with Katie, so it’s kind of like, where did that come from? I had an eye on him, in terms of guys who might just say things rather than say whatever he wants to say.
That said, Nick admitted he was unsure if Thomas joined The bachelorette for the right reasons.
âI don’t know if Thomas is a villain or not,â Nick said. âHe wouldn’t be the first person in the world to say what he thinks he is supposed to say. I was just good enough to pick this up. We’ll see what the rest of Bachelor Nation thinks about it.

For now, fans will have to watch Thomas and Katie’s journey unfold in The bachelorette Season 17. However, it doesn’t look like the couple will end up together. According to Bachelor Nation Reality spoiler guru Steve, Katie will eventually send Thomas home. On May 13, the blogger wrote:
To hear that Thomas Jacobs is an early season “bad guy”. I am putting this in parentheses because this term is 1) shorter to use and 2) has taken on many variations over the years. Basically, he’s the guy who ruffles feathers at first with the other guys. I believe he gets an early rose, thus making him look like an early favorite, who quickly wears out his welcome with some of the others and Thomas ends up being knocked out in Episode 3 or 4.
Whatever happens, it certainly seems like there is a lot of drama because The bachelorette Season 17 continues. Be ready.
