Is Bachelorette Katie Thurston heading to BIP?

Katie Thurston went to Instagram to answer a Q&A for fans and she spilled a little tea while doing so. As fans know, Katie is not one to hold back on her thoughts and usually says what she wants.

One fan asked Katie if she is going to appear in the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise. Unfortunately, Katie replied no but she also dropped a major hint about other cast members. Her reasoning for not going on this season was that there are already enough leads going already.
