Blake Horstmann likely won’t show back up on the beach for another round looking for love. He doesn’t have a healthy relationship with the franchise at the moment. He does have a relationship with Becca Kufrin, who is the Bachelorette he fell in love with. When the cast of the new show came out, there were rumors Becca would be there. Now previews for new episodes show she’s coming back and the men are intrigued. It even seems she finds a new love if the previews show the truth.
Blake said that after she broke up with the winner of her season, Garrett Yrigoyen, he reflected on his feelings for her. Blake’s time on Bachelor in Paradise gave him PTSD by his own admittance. He felt like the producers manipulated and used him. He ended up being portrayed as the bad guy for hooking up with two girls before the show and then immediately going for Hannah Godwin. What followed was a fight on camera with Caelynn Miller-Keyes and a lot of drama.
Blake Horstmann Talked To Becca Kufrin
Blake Horstmann said once Becca became single he asked himself if there were still feelings. Having stuck by his confession he fell in love with her while on the show, he still says the same. Blake said, “We did kind of chat here and there, and we were back in touch within the last, like, six months. It kind of came down to if she was going to do Paradise or not.”
He stated, “I was in love, and I’m not afraid to admit that.” Blake went on to say other people would pretend they weren’t to save face. He said he’s comfortable enough to say it according to Cosmo. Horstmann said, “I got dumped, and that happens. I definitely thought she was the one, and it just didn’t work out.”
Why He Didn’t Go On The Show This Time
Blake Horstmann stated he thinks the franchise might not like for him and Becca to be together. He said, “The show doesn’t like me, the show doesn’t want to see us together.” He said Becca’s life is all about the franchise right now. Not only is she on Bachelor in Paradise, she hosts a podcast about the show.
Blake posted on Instagram after the premiere of the new season. He said, “Don’t forget these people are humans and not characters! Basically just be a good person…hell even just a decent one.” This references his belief he thought the producers set him up to play a character.
