'Bachelor in Paradise' star Blake Horstmann says he will not be 'shamed' into giving up Stagecoach gig
While the awkwardness of his time in 'Bachelor in Paradise' and 'Bachelorette' is still fresh in the minds of the fandom, Blake Horstmann said he will not be 'shamed' into not performing at the festival
Former 'Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise' contestant Blake Horstmann says he will not be stopped from following his passion of DJing at Stagecoach Festival. While the awkwardness of his time in 'Bachelor in Paradise' and 'Bachelorette' is still fresh in the minds of the fandom, Horstmann told Daily Mail that he will not be "shamed" into not performing at the music festival.
The former reality star told the publication at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City ahead of his big gig, "Yes I am definitely still going. I’m not going to let people shame me into not going to a music festival."
Back when Horstmann was in the sixth season of 'Bachelor in Paradise', he ran into an awkward situation after it was revealed he had slept with two women from the franchise over two days at Stagecoach: Hannah Godwin and Caelynn Miller-Keyes before the season. When they all met, it was, understandably, quite dramatic and messy.
He allegedly ghosted Caelynn, although he claimed it never went down that way.
He was also linked to Hannah Brown for a while, although the rumors remained just that. He was also seen getting handsy with contestant Tayshia Adams, although the two weren't exclusive. Tayshia was a contestant from Colton Underwood‘s 'Bachelor' season and caught Blake’s eye within the first few hours of their arrival into the mansion. He also dated contestant Kristina Schulman.
"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," he said in an Instagram post.
Horstmann was one of the final three in Becca Kufrin's 'Bachelorette' season and Garrett Yrigoyen was picked instead. "I’ll be a little more careful, but I’m really looking forward to it," he told Daily Mail about the giant mess his dating life left behind, adding that he and Kristina had made up and were actually friends.
Let's hope there are no more awkward run-ins for him at Stagecoach Festival this year.
