Katie Maloney's Sexuality

When it comes to her sexuality, Katie said, "I would never put any type of label on myself. I like people." 

In a confessional, she elaborated further. "I've always had an attraction to women, but I was with Tom Schwartz forever, so I wasn't really acting on any of that," she said. "But he's not gonna stop me from doing anything now."

Katie Maloney and Tori Keeth's Relationship

In addition to making out after the group's beach day, Katie and Tori later went on a painting date — one that just so happened to fall the day after Tom's date with Tori. As he explained to Jo Wenberg when recapping everything, "[Tori] actually made out with my ex-wife the night before we went on a date, which was a little plot twist I didn't see coming."

"It was bizarre just knowing the fact that she was playing tongue hockey with Maloney the night before, and actually, she's going on a date with Katie today," Tom added at the time.

However, he also admitted, "I think [Tori] prefers Katie."

Katie, for her part, said in a confessional, "If [Tom] doesn't like me taking his girls from him, maybe he should try harder."
