Tayshia was a contestant from Colton Underwood‘s season and catches Blake’s eye within the first few hours of their arrival. According to Reality Steve, he gets the first date card of the season and asks out the reality babe. It is later revealed that Tayshia and Blake actually have crossed paths before — see details down below.
“We dated. I’m not going to act like we were just flirting. She came to Denver and visited me a couple of times,” Blake admitted on the web show The Morning Toast in April. “It didn’t really work out. I was at a very strange point in my life … I just felt that I couldn’t be there for her the way she wanted me to.”
For once, it’s not what happens in Mexico … it’s what happened before. It’s exposed that Blake slid into Tayshia’s DMs to meet up during the Stagecoach Music Festival in April. According to him, they just hung out and did not hook up.
The next night, Blake hung out with Caelyn and they allegedly had sex. If you’re shocked, just buckle up, because it gets worse. Apparently, on the third night of the festival, Kristina and Blake also hooked up and had sex.
When all his dirty laundry airs during Paradise, Reality Steve claims that all the ladies will have their chance to confront him about his shady behavior.
Wait, there’s more. It then surfaces that two weeks before filming for Paradise began, Blake jetted off to Hannah G.’s hometown of Birmingham, Alabama to hang out with her. According to the gossip outlet, the two planned the trip because they were interested in each other. However, once all of Blake’s previous hookups come to light, it seems as though Hannah is no longer impressed with him and moves on to greener pastures.
The drama didn’t end when filming did, though. As the episodes aired, Blake took to Instagram to share his side of the story. “I want to get the truth out,” he wrote on Tuesday, August 6, after admitting he’s made “a lot of mistakes” over the past year. “I was not able to defend myself down in paradise because [I] and most of the beach had no idea the things Caelynn was saying in her interviews. … 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.”
On his Instagram Story, he shared screenshots of alleged texts between the two of them where the former pageant queen seemingly propositioned him “strictly for sex” while at Stagecoach. “This is the last thing I wanted to do, but my name and character are being attacked,” he finished. “My name is all I have. Most of all, it is the only real way to prove that what is being said by Caelynn and the story that is being shown is far from the truth.”
