SEASON 17 of The Bachelorette has started in full swing as the contestants duke it out for Katie Thurston's heart.
Contestant Greg Grippo, 27, is appearing on Katie's season – and received her First Impression Rose.
What does Bachelorette star Greg Grippo do for a living?
According to his ABC bio, Greg is a marketing and sales representative.
He works as an account manager at Mondo, according to his LinkedIn.
He hails from Edison, New Jersey, and he graduated from Saint Michael’s College in 2018 with a degree in business administration and management.
Back in July 2020, Reality Steve revealed that Greg was one of 15 guys who was cut from Clare Crawley's final lineup who were originally cast on her season.
Why do fans think Greg Grippo from The Bachelorette is an actor?
Bachelorette nation has made some accusations against contestant Greg, that he's on the show for fame, not love.
Katie gave her first impression rose to Greg this season, after he gifted her with a macaroni necklace that was made by his niece.
Greg is supposedly a current marketing executive from New York, but Reddit user @DeuxMoi thinks otherwise, after posting a long list of accusations against him. The accusations has sparked speculation that he is on the show to further his career, not win Katie's heart.
“He is not on the show for love, let alone Katie, and his appearance on this show is solely to promote and kick-start his acting career,” the Reddit user wrote.

The user then went on to accuse Greg of being a "manipulative liar."
In another post from the Reddit user, they talk about knowing one of the contestants, and while they never state a specific name, Bachelorette nation is convinced it's about Greg.
"My best friend dated a fan-favorite contestant on The Bachelorette very seriously for a year and a half and he was awful to her," the user said.
"This sweet shy boy act is exactly that: an act. He really is actually an actor. I’ve personally witnessed him throw a fit and call her a terrible name for wearing a mini dress, so I can only imagine what happened behind closed doors.”
The user continued, “He broke up with her, she was extremely upset and then made her Uber an hour back to her apartment alone at 1 a.m. We watched our kind, confident friend turn into a shell of herself and then get thrown to the curb. Of course, his social media is perfectly curated now. He has an image to protect.”
Greg's social media also reveals that he attended William Esper Acting School, giving the accusations some support.
Who are Katie Thurston’s final four on The Bachelorette?
Thurston’s final four men have been revealed by Reality Steve on his podcast.
Reality Steve dished on the three men he initially believed would be part of her top four, saying: “Blake Moynes makes the final 4 along with Greg Grippo (the first impression rose recipient), and John Hersey. Those 3 I know.”
He added: “I’m not sure who the 4th guy is in the final 4 yet.
“I’ve heard names but nothing I’m confident about. Those three I am."
However, Reality Steve recently updated his final four predictions, removing one name in the process and revealing Thurston's fourth sweetheart.
Moynes and Grippo have allegedly secured their place in the final four, but the final two will reportedly be Justin Glaze and Andrew Spencer, according to Reality Steve.
Reality Steve also reported that Thurston leaves the show engaged, though it is unclear to who.
