Everyone who went to Mexico just months ago is now rewatching their time there and reminiscing on social media. But Blake’s Instagram comments on Bachelor in Paradise have taken a dark turn. Moments after his confrontations with Kristina and Caelynn aired on August 6, he posted a statement on Instagram explaining his actions and defending his character. Minutes later, he released old text messages from Caelynn that he thought would help his cause, but many in Bachelor Nation aren’t so sure it did.
“I wanted to take time to address what is being portrayed in the episodes," Blake first wrote on Instagram. "I made a lot of mistakes this past year that I’m not proud of. I know some people don’t think this show is real, but it is. It is very real. Everybody handles heartbreak differently and everybody handles the public eye differently. I have a lot of insecurities I’ve been struggling with and lost myself this year. I’ve gotten way in over my head with women and have made a lot of mistakes and although never my intent, I hurt several people along the way."
He posted the note on his grid, and then went to his Instagram stories to share Caelynn’s texts from the night they hooked up at Stagecoach music festival in April, and then from days before they landed in Paradise.
