Bachelor Nation friends forever! Fresh from the October final Bachelor in Paradise season 7, the cast has come out of hiding for a night on the town with their other showalums — including former couples and fan favorites.
“On a scale of 1-10 how weird is the Bachelor Nation 😂, ” Blake Horstmann, who previously appeared on Bip season 6, shared a group photo via Instagram on Friday, October 15th. He also included the hashtags “trytonotmakethedatingtreeonthispic.” “Thomasistall” and “theansweristoomanyzeros” in his post.
Pictured at the Blended Festival in San Diego, California, Horstmann, 32, is seen hanging out with his ex Becca Kufrin and her new love, Thomas Jacobs. Jacobs, 29, for his part, also reunited with his former TV flame, Katie Thurston. Abigail Heringer, Noah erb, Hannah Godwin and fiancés Dylan Barbour, Cassandra Suarez and John Hersey also participated in the festivities.
In response to Bachelorette season 14 alum questions on his social media posts, several of the other contestants and Bachelor fan favorites commented on their response.
Thurston, 30, for his part, added, “10. Solid, ”mens Elyse Dehlbom wrote: “Lol 10 of course.”
The Colorado native later shared the same group snap on his Instagram Story, commenting, “This is not weird.” Then, Bachelorette season 17 -lead rebroadcast it on his Instagram and wrote “Little cult of weirdos.”
Horstmann — who previously competed for the 31-year-old Minnesota native season — briefly revived her romance on screen with Kufrin before her Bip stint, even though the podcast host “Bachelor Happy Hour” has claimed the couple were just friends.
“Blake and I have always been friends. We have always supported each other, “said the Bourdon founder in an August episode of the podcast” Click Bait. ” “As for the ‘talk’, yes, we’ve been in very sporadic contact, but nothing that I would say would justify … a potential relationship.”
Weeks later, the “Behind the Rose” podcast host hinted that there was more to the story.
“Honestly, at this point, it’s just something I do not know if I want to waste my breath at all. I just feel like at this point it’s just a waste of time, ”Horstmann revealed in a September episode of his“ Behind the Rose ”podcast. “Listen, I was hurt by the podcast [interview]. … Like you said, it’s no secret that we were together before. I do not think it was a secret – like, [it] was not at all. More than anything else, I was hurt by it. ”
He continued: “I think the people – my friends – definitely know the truth. I think most people in the bachelor world know the truth, her friends certainly do not know that they know the truth. So that’s how it is, that’s what it is. ”
Since the former publicist’s time on Paradise beach, she has since revived her romance on screen with natives of San Diego.
“You know what they say … Third time is a charm,” Kufrin wrote an Instagram video of the couple, shortly after Bip finals were broadcast. “I’m sorry I broke up with you on national television, but I take every day to make up with you, Tommy. Thank you for making my heart smile far more than it ever has. Now it’s time to start this real life @thomasajacobs. ”
