The Bachelorette: Why is Brendon still on the show?
- Brendan is one of two Canadians currently on Katie’s season
- Countless fans mirrored Katie and Brendan’s conversation, sharing that they, too, had zero time to get to know Brendan
- Many fans joked about Brendan asking the same question on camera that everyone was asking themselves at home
Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette is almost wrapping up with seven episodes released till now. This means that the only men left are frontrunners, but in the July 19 episode of the dating show, there was one contestant fans didn’t seem to recognize: Brendan Quinn, who along with Twitter couldn’t figure out why he was still on 'The Bachelorette'.
When the episode started, Brendan hoped that he would finally get some personal time with Katie, but when his name was read from the group date list, he seemed confused. He asked other men/contestants “The biggest question is why am I still here?” because they were the ones who had spent some quality time with Katie. He said, “I didn’t get time at [the] group date. I didn’t get time at cocktail. Three great guys went home. Why am I still here?”
He then decided to go to Katie’s room to ask her about his concerns. Unfortunately, his earlier questions foreshadowed his elimination from the show.
After he spoke with Katie, she interrupted him and said, “I’m gonna stop you right there,” she explained that while she did feel a connection with him, she didn’t think they’d be able to get to the point they needed to be at before she met his family. Several fans mirrored Katie and Brendan’s conversation and shared that they, too, had zero time to get to know him on the show.
Many fans took it to Twitter, to share their views on it. One user said, “The only thing bachelor nation knows about this man is that his name is Brendan.” While another fan wrote, “EVEN BRENDAN DOESNT KNOW WHY HE'S STILL THERE.”
Some viewers also commented that contestant Michael A’s son — who he’s FaceTimed a few times during the season — had more screentime than Brendan.
