In case you forgot/all of the seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette have merged collectively into one wine drunk monster in your head, Blake was the runner-up (and, for many of the season, the assumed frontrunner) when Becca was handing out roses because the lead of season 14 of The Bachelorette. Becca in the end selected Garrett Yrigoyen and the pair acquired engaged within the season’s finale. Final fall, Becca and Garrett ended their engagement and this summer time, she’s returning to Bachelor Nation as a contestant on Bachelor in Paradise.
In a brand new interview for the Real Life with Kate Casey podcast, Blake (who made a reasonably disastrous look on BiP himself throughout the present’s sixth season in 2019) revealed that, in between Becca’s breakup and her resolution to formally decide to Paradise, they have been again in contact.
“We did type of chat right here and there, and we have been again in contact inside the final, like, six months,” Blake mentioned (per People), adding that “it kind of came down to if she was going to do Paradise or not.”
Blake said he was shocked when Becca and Garrett split and that the news of their breakup prompted him to reexamine his feelings for Becca and “wonder if there’s anything still there.”
Don’t get your heart set on a Becca/Blake reunion just yet, though. Even though Blake said “would be willing to talk” to Becca if she wanted to consider rekindling their relationship, there are a couple of roadblocks in the way. First, and most obviously, he’s waiting to see “how Paradise works out” for her in the romance department. Then, there’s a nagging worry Blake has that the Bachelor Powers That Be would be against (and maybe sabotage? It’s not clear from his quotes, TBH) any attempts at a romance.
“The show doesn’t like me, the show doesn’t want to see us together,” he said, which could be a problem since he describes the Bachelor franchise as being “kind of her life” right now. “She has, like, the ABC podcast [Bachelor Happy Hour]. That is type of her factor. She could be very a lot concerned in that present. We’ll see.”
“I was in love, and I’m not afraid to admit that,” he said. “I think some guys also—and women, for that matter—have a sense of pride like, ‘No, I wasn’t in love because I got dumped,’ or whatever, like, ‘I wasn’t really in love.’ I’m comfortable enough to be like, ‘I was in love. And I got dumped, and that happens.’ But no, I definitely thought she was the one, and it just didn’t work out.”
