‘Bachelor In Paradise’ Fans Are Telling Becca Kufrin She ‘Dodged a Bullet’ After Not Picking Blake Horstmann
The world of The Bachelor and Bachelorette is full of drama — and fans are already thoroughly entertained by Bachelor In Paradise. So far this season, we’ve seen real connections already established between contestants. But everyone’s currently talking about what’s going on between Blake Horstmann and Caelynn Miller-Keyes.
Horstmann and Miller-Keyes knew each other and had hooked up before heading to Paradise, but they seem to have completely separate stories regarding what their relationship was. And fans are telling Becca Kufrin, the Bachelorette who nearly ended up with Horstmann at the end of her season, that she totally made the right choice in not choosing him.
Blake Horstmann was totally heartbroken after Becca Kufrin didn’t choose him
We may know Horstmann as one of the most sought-after men in Paradise currently, but before he was looking for love amongst the current sea of women, he was after Becca Kufrin’s heart. People reminds us Horstmann was the runner-up on Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette. And while they made a real and lasting connection, he was left heartbroken when Kufrin went with Garrett Yrigoyen.
Despite the heartbreak and tearful goodbye, Horstmann managed to move on (and become the apple of many Bachelor contestants’ eyes afterward). And he also mentioned to Entertainment Tonight that he’s “definitely over it, already moved on, closed that door. It was funny, After the Final Rose, it wasn’t really seeing her that helped me, but actually seeing them together.” Horstmann also believed he would get a shot at being the next Bachelor, too, though that honor went to Colton Underwood instead.
He and Caelynn Miller-Keyes are at the center of controversy
While Horstmann and Kufrin are no longer being discussed amongst Bachelor Nation fans, it’s now Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Horstmann’s drama that’s taking the stage. Us Weekly notes on the premiere of Bachelor In Paradise, Miller-Keyes told Chris Harrison and the cameras that she was involved with Horstmann before the show. According to her, Horstmann had sex with her just a day after he had sex with Kristina Schulman, and he then ghosted her soon after.
While Horstmann didn’t have much of a defense on TV, he did release texts between himself and Miller-Keyes to Instagram. And the texts showed Miller-Keyes reassuring Horstmann that they would have a totally casual one-night stand. “Caelynn and I were NEVER in a relationship. I NEVER ghosted Caelynn, I NEVER called her a mistake and I absolutely NEVER EVER EVER silenced Caelynn. … My name and character are being attacked. My name is all I really have,” Horstmann added to Instagram.
Fans are telling Kufrin she made the right choice
Bachelor and Bachelorette stars are certainly taking sides, and it seems many are telling Horstmann via Instagram that he’s in the right. And we know Kufrin’s watching, too. She added this photo of herself on Instagram with the caption, “Catching up on that Paradise drama whilst in paradise.” And fans flocked to the comments to tell her they’re glad she didn’t end up with Horstmann after all of the recent drama.
“I have been watching and all I have to say is I am so glad you picked @gy_yrigoyen and not Blake!” one fan commented. Another added, “You seriously dodged a bullet!” Yet another one of her followers wrote, “So thankful you did not pick Blake. I’m disappointed in him. I think you picked true love.”
It seems fans are still happy for Kufrin and Yrigoyen, too. As for what tea Kufrin may have to spill on the situation, we’ll have to wait and see what insights she may bring to the table later on.
