Blake Horstmann Speaks Out About Difficult Time On Bachelor In Paradise

  

ABC

Season six of Bachelor in Paradise had more than its fair share of drama both on and off-screen, and in the beginning a lot of it was centered around Blake Horstmann.

After a surprising episode 11 in the last week of the season, Horstmann took to his Instagram to share a message about his time on the show and all that transpired while he was there. “To say paradise was rough for me is an understatement. I have no one to blame but myself for that,” he began his post alongside a sunset photo of him standing in the ocean.

“It’s not easy putting yourself and all of your mistakes out there for the world to see. No matter the differences all of us had on that beach, I will always have respect for each and every one of you, being brave enough to be yourselves and chase the love we all feel we deserve,” he continued.

“Never forget that we are all human and not characters on television. I want to thank those of you that have sent me kind words and encouraging messages. Those have helped more than you will ever know,” Horstmann added.

He concluded, ” I hope that this is not the end of my story and I can look back at this summer and be grateful for the lessons learned and the friends made,” and added the hashtags #bekind #imstillnotgonnastopdancing #imstillgoingtostagecoach,” referencing all of the drama that came from a wild weekend at Stage Coach music festival in April.
