When a former contestant shows up it can go either way if fans and fellow contestants will be accepting of the change. It’s been teased for weeks now that Blake Moynes will crash Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette. Many thought perhaps he would show up last week but he didn’t. Now, it’s been confirmed his big debut will be Monday night. It looks like fans can’t wait to see this alum swoop in and try to win Katie’s heart.
Thoughts on Blake Moynes joining Katie’s season
Cosmopolitan reported on the news that fans are anxious to see Blake crash the party. This comes as a surprise mainly because he was just on Tayshia Adams and Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette. Plus it might be kind of awkward since Tayhia is co-hosting this season. However, Tayshia has hinted he reached out to her about Katie.
Nick Viall has weighed in on Blake joining Katie’s season. He said, “Blake is going to get crap, obviously, for someone who fell in love with Clare without validation, fell in love with Tayshia without validation. So, when he’s [saying], ‘I’m in love with Katie,’ it’s fair to question [it]. I don’t question that he believes what he says. I just kind of question, like, ‘Do you just kind of love hard, bro?’”
Nick also revealed that Blake was on set already when he was hosting the group date with Katie. No doubt the men won’t be very welcoming when he shows up Monday night. Promos have teased a shocking rose ceremony. Will it involve Blake? Everyone will see it play out Monday, however, Nick seems to think Blake will last awhile on the show.
Twitter goes crazy
Fans on Twitter are anxious to see Blake show up. One fan said, “GIVE ME BLAKE MOYNES BABYYYYY @BlakeMoynes #TheBachelorette.” Another said, But on a serious note, when do we get @BlakeMoynes? #TheBacheloretteABC.” Many more fans tweeted similar feelings.
