Blake Horstmann was a hot topic in Bachelor in Paradise last year. However, apparently all that action really messed him up since then.
Blake Horstmann can’t think about Paradise
According to US Weekly, Blake can’t even think about that time he spent on the beach. He says that when he thinks about it, it makes his heart race.
“I have, like, PTSD, and I obviously don’t mean that as in, like, Vietnam, Army, like whatever, but I do when I start thinking about being back down on that beach. Like, my heart races, my palms sweat,” Blake says.
Honestly, it’s kind of understandable. He did some terrible things that made people hate him. Especially when it came to breaking the heart of Caelynn Miller-Keyes.
He still believes in the show
Despite all of his negative feelings, he says that he still believes in the show, however he just isn’t sure that he can do it again himself.
“It was just such a rough and horrible experience for me down there on that beach that being down there again in that environment, I just don’t think that I could do it,” Blake says. “I think that I’d have anxiety attacks. Like, I really do. So I don’t know if I could do actually Paradise down on that beach, but I still believe in the show, man.”
Does his belief in the show mean that if Paradise happens somewhere else he would go? Honestly, only time will tell. However, he doesn’t have a great reputation with the cast so it may be better to meet someone organically.
“And I know now a lot more, obviously, than I did when I was on Bachelorette. Like, I know a lot that is fake and there’s a lot of editing that goes into a lot of situations, but I still think you can find somebody. I still do,” Blake revealed.
He continued: “I mean, you fell in love, man. I fell in love with Becca, you fell in love on Paradise. Like, it can happen, and that, in the back of my mind, I’m like, ‘F—k, man, I don’t know. Would I go back on?’”
