Bachelorette fans slam show for ‘forcing’ Katie Thurston’s suitor Mike Planeta to tell her he’s a virgin on sex date

BACHELORETTE fans slammed the show for “forcing” contestant Mike Planeta to tell Katie Thurston he’s a virgin on a group date focused on sex. 

On last week’s premiere of the ABC reality series, the 31-year-old revealed he’s saving himself until marriage which is a stark contrast to the “most sex-positive lead” in the franchise’s history.

Tonight’s episode showed Mike saying in a confessional he planned on telling Katie, 30, about his virginity at a later time. 

However, the handsome suitor was chosen to go on a group date that was completely sex-themed – even putting the men on the spot with personal questions. 

Mike – along with the rest of the guys present – had to answer questions in front of everyone such as “when is the last time you had sex?”, “what is your favorite sex position?”, and “when did you lose your virginity?”

He answered all of the intimate inquiries with a simple question mark and did not delve into further details.

But during a confessional interview, the San Diego gym owner broke down in tears as he admitted to being “uncomfortable” with the situation.

Despite being in noticeable pain, he pushed through the date activity and participated in the final challenge which was showing Katie a form of intimacy on stage.

Mike chose to express his feelings with a poem and asked Katie to join him as he reads next to her on a bed.

He recited: “To my future wife, I always pictured what you were like. Would you be tender or passionate? Funny or shy?

“At last, what kind of mother would you be? I always wanted you to feel loved and honored.

“And the best way to show you this is to save myself for you. Love is hard, sometimes physically, sometimes literally.”

He ended saying: “But I want you to know that I would wait another 31 years for sex if it was worth it to you that I sacrificed everything to make you feel beautiful and secure.”

Katie broke down in tears moved by the touching words and immediately said: “That was so beautiful.

“Mike acknowledged he knows who I am. For him to choose to be here for me with who I am, it was the greatest feeling. I get choked up just talking about it.”

She even awarded Mike with the group trophy for his emotional poem.

However, fans were outraged by the “cruel” move from show producers, with one saying: “Poor Mike P. The devil works hard, but the Bach producers work harder.”

One person tweeted: “The producers set mike up hard core just for him to win a competition he they wanted him to lose.”

“Producers whenever someone says they’re a virgin – put on sex-forward sate,” another quipped.

“The Virgin on the group date and has to discuss how he’d sexually please her. Little predictable and seems overly cruel,” a critic fired off.

While many people wrote in agreement: “I feel so uncomfortable for Mike.”

Last week, Mike introduced himself in a pre-recorded package before meeting Katie with the emphasis being his virginity.

“I got drafted for baseball right when I was 19. And I got pretty cocky but sports have humbled me.

“Most girls, when they look at me, think I have a huge ego and I’m a player. But that’s not actually morally where I’m at. 

“So I’m saving myself for marriage, so I’ve never had sex” Mike revealed. 

The California boy said he “disagrees” with the stigma that he “cannot connect” with people unless it’s physically.

He said that while he understands Katie has been openly more sexual, he’s “hoping” if they are a right fit, they will “take the same road” together.

The former professional baseball player also gushed about his close relationship with his “loving family” and the “cornerstone” of his upbringing being his faith.

According to his contestant bio, Mike has always “been a one-woman type of guy,” but due to his career in the MLB, dating was “never really a priority in his life.” 

However, he has retired from being a full-time athlete and now runs a gym for high schoolers which gives him “more time to focus on love.”
