On September 14, 2018, I had the chance to catch up with Blake Horstmann from The Bachelorette at Eligible Magazine’s 2018 Bachelor Party in Toronto. After giving me me his initial thoughts about being in Canada for the first time, I cut right to the chase and asked Blake why Becca didn’t choose him in the finale. I asked Blake why he chose not to visit Paradise after The Bachelorette and we talked about how it might be a possibility when the show returns next summer. Blake talked about how difficult it was for him on The Bachelorette and we also chatted about why Bachelor in Paradise has produced more successful relationships than both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.
