'The Bachelorette' 2021 Cast: Who Has Been Eliminated—And Who's Still in the Competition

The Bachelorette's 2021 season (or Season 17) is currently airing Mondays on ABC, with Katie Thurston beginning the competition with her choice of 30 men. Over the weeks and across many rose ceremonies, she will slowly bring these down to the one who could be her next husband.

During the first week, Thurston eliminated seven men, including Jeff Caravello, who received much social media attention after he took the bachelorette around the not-quite-clean RV that he lives in.

In the second episode, she tasked 10 contestants with proving they were the greatest lover of all time. She then put the men through their paces on a post-date cocktail party, before having her first one-on-one date with the men she gave her first-impression rose to, in the first episode.

After a classic Bachelorette mud-wrestling contest, Season 17 got its first major drama— and its first major accusation of someone not being there for the "right reasons."

Week three began with a dramatic rose ceremony, after the men ganged up on Karl to tell Katie they believed he was lying to her. After Katie eliminated four more men, the group went on their next set of dates, which included an honesty circle and some ATV driving.

Week four saw the men gang up on another contestant as they told Katie they believed that Thomas may have the wrong reasons for being on the show. This came after he confessed to them he had thought of being the next Bachelor. Katie also eliminated three other contestants during the rose ceremony of that episode, which also saw Blake Moynes join as a contestant.

In week five, Katie eliminated three more suitors after a brutal game of what the show called "Bash Ball" and some romantic alone time with new contestant Blake. Week six, however, ended up even more brutal, with Connor B getting friend-zoned while four other contestants also got eliminated, taking the ABC show to its top seven.

Here's how things stand as of week six on The Bachelorette 2021. This page was be updated as the show continues, so come back every week for the latest.
