  • Blake Horstmann just hopped on Instagram to drag Bachelor in Paradise producers.
  • He says that he still has “pretty bad PTSD” from the show and “it’s hard for me to trust anybody now.”

Shout-out to the celebs who are passing the time during isolation by going on Instagram and spilling the tea (looking @ you, Mason Disick and Sophie Turner), ’cause really, we could all use some entertainment at the moment!


Bachelor in Paradise alum Blake Horstmann decided to do an Instagram Q and A yesterday, and he did *not* hold back in his responses. First, he went off on BiP producers and talked about how they “convinced” him not to take Hannah Godwin on a date, writing:

Okay, so this is gonna be a long one...but fuck it, I'm off contract...When I received the date card, I 100% planned to take Hannah. I even left my interview saying I was gonna take Hannah. When I walked out of the interview, 3 producers sat me down for close to an hr and convinced me to take Tayshia. It was 100% my decision, they didn’t force me or anything, but at that point I really truly did trust the producers and that they had my best interest.

Obviously, I was very wrong and they didn’t want me to be happy with Hannah bc that would have very much ruined there [sic] plans for the season...

When asked if he would do BiP again, Blake responded that he still has “pretty bad PTSD” and wrote, “It’s hard for me to trust anybody now, let alone producers and anyone in front of cameras...people change dramatically in front of cameras...”

Oh, and if you’re wondering whether or not Blake regrets releasing Caelynn Miller-Keyes’ private texts, well, the answer is no. He posted, “I don’t regret it and I will never apologize for defending myself against lies that were serious allegations on national TV. It sucks it came to that and I wish it didn’t have to, but it did.” And that’s certainly...one way to look at it.

And now I just wonder which Bachelor Nation alum is going to spill the tea next 👀.
