Greg Grippo, a contestant on The Bachelorette, got Katie Thurston’s First Impression Rose in the first episode of her season.
As Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette comes to a close, Grippo held on to Katie’s heart and stayed in the final three until episode nine, when he told Katie, “I’m done here” and stormed out.
What Happened to Greg Grippo’s Dad From the Bachelorette?
The obituary for Frank Grippo, Grippo’s father, says that he died on December 30, 2018. Before he died, Frank was married to Greg’s mom, Sandra, for 35 years.

Why Do Bachelorette Fans Think Greg Grippo is an Actor?
People in Bachelorette Nation have said that contestant Grippo is only on the show for fame and not love. This season, Thurston gave Grippo her first impression rose after he gave her a necklace made of macaroni by his niece.
Grippo is said to be a marketing executive in New York right now, but a Reddit user named @DeuxMoi posted a long list of accusations against him that make her think otherwise.
Some people think that he is only on the show to boost his career and not to win Thurston’s heart. The Reddit user wrote, “He is not on the show for love, let alone Katie. He is only there to promote his acting career and get it off the ground.”
The user then said that Grippo was a “liar who lies to manipulate.” In another post, the Reddit user talks about knowing one of the contestants. They don’t say who it is, but everyone in Bachelorette nation thinks it’s Grippo.
The user said, “My best friend dated a fan favorite on The Bachelorette for a year and a half, and he was horrible to her.” “This act of being a sweet, shy boy is just that: an act. He is an actor, no doubt about it.
“I saw him throw a fit and call her a bad name because she was wearing a short dress, so I can only guess what went on behind closed doors.”
The user went on, “He broke up with her, she was very upset, and at 1 a.m., he made her take an Uber alone for an hour back to her apartment.
“We saw our kind, self-assured friend become a shell of herself and then get kicked out on the street. His social media are, of course, in great shape now. He needs to keep up his good name.”
Grippo’s social media also show that he went to the William Esper Acting School, which backs up the accusations.
How Can I Watch the Bachelorette?
The Bachelorette is on ABC on Monday nights at 8pm. Sandy Grippo, Greg’s mom, was on an episode of The Bachelorette called “Hometown Dates.”
During the episode, Sandy told Katie about her worries, telling her that “his heart’s going to get hurt.” Katie said, “At the end of this, everyone but one man will be hurt.”
Will Thurston and Grippo get out of the Bachelor mansion together, or will the tension tear them apart?
