Blake Moynes may just need a bit of sunshine on his journey to finding true love!
“The Bachelorette” two-timer successfully earned lots of roses and won Katie Thurston’s heart with a classic rom-com inspired boombox serenade, but unfortunately the pair did not make it to the altar.
Since the pair went their separate ways last year Moynes has been candid with his feelings concerning the circumstances of his split with Thurston, and whether the franchise would someday see his return.
Only a few months after his engagement to Thurston ended, inquiring minds wanted to know if he would ever be interested in holding the highly esteemed ‘Bachelor’ title for a season.
Moynes answered with a resounding “No,” according to Us Weekly.
Could There Be A Trip To Paradise Ahead?
Time *does* at least heal some wounds!
Four months after he swore off ever being the ‘Bachelor,’ Moynes revisited the idea of continuing his quest for love with the help of Bachelor Nation.
Franchise staple “Bachelor In Paradise” returned last Summer after the series took a hiatus following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many couples in Bachelor Nation have found their “happily ever after” with the help of some sand and surf.
Could the flirty, fun, and equally messy series be seeing Moynes on the beach anytime soon? Well, not quite, but he is open to joking about it.
Moynes playfully brought up the idea of appearing on the series after a fan wanted to know if there were any plans for him to return to the public eye.
According to Us Weekly, Moynes said, “Duh, paradise! Count it down! Can’t wait to get on that beach, get back into it!”
Never Swear Off Playing In The Sand!
The 31-year-old quickly put the idea to rest, but his response shows he’s had some time to reflect since his extremely public break-up, and is at least open to discussing possibilities.
He summed up the chances of a beachy return with answering “Probably not, never say never, but not unless it was a great opportunity for something, but I’d like to not.”
Moynes’ ties with Bachelor Nation haven’t been completely severed!
He is still friendly with some fan favorites, including ‘Paradise’ couple Abigail Heringer and Noah Erb.
The couple recently appeared on an episode of the “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast, where Erb recalls a story about a time when he and his pal got into some back-and-forth banter on Instagram.
Moynes hung out with Heringer on the beach, a fun excursion her boo missed out on due to his heavy work schedule; Erb is currently working as an ICU travel nurse, according to an interview with Nurse.org.
Moynes captioned the photo he had snapped of their beach party, which features Moynes with his arm around Heringer, by simply tagging Erb’s handle.
Erb revealed on “Bachelor Happy Hour” the duo were just kidding around as pals do, a fact Moynes was careful to clear up before after Erb jokingly left some comments teasing his friend.
According to Moynes reached out via text and said “I just want you to know I’m joking,” swiftly putting any rumors of a rift to rest!
