'The Bachelorette' 2021: Did Blake Moynes return for Tayshia Adams? Katie doubts his intentions
'Bachelorette' Katie Thurston teased Blake Moynes' return could be more than what it appears
Blake Moynes' reappearance on 'The Bachelorette' has everyone puzzled, even Season 17 lead Katie Thurston. In the sneak peek aired by ABC, we see her surprised as the suitor calls out her name from a distance.
Moynes stood there with what appeared to be a big flashlight in his hands and a smile on his face. He was ready to win her back, his body language said it all. But did he return to the show for Thurston or was he looking at scoring another chance to date Tayshia Adams? While logic says he is in New Mexico trying to win over Thurston, but she threw people off by teasing there could be hidden intentions. "I mean, we have to see if that’s even why he’s there," she teased in an interview with US Weekly and added: "Like I said, he’s Tayshia’s ex-boyfriend, so I don’t know what’s happening."
Moynes was part of Clare Crawley's season. He had feelings for her but then Adams came along and before he could establish a presence in her life, he was sent packing. Even though both Adams and Moynes have not admitted to their feelings, somewhere Thurston seems to be sure they have dated and he's her 'ex-boyfriend.'
"If it was Tayshia from the beginning, I think my story would have been a little bit different. It was tough because I felt, like, even emotionally, I could feel it, like, she could see something there," Blake told the outlet December 2020 and added: "And it was so frustrating to get in the limo and be like, ‘There’s something here but you’re just not letting it happen.’ And that was the most unfortunate."
Meanwhile, fans are concerned about how his being on the show is going to impact the dynamics among the men. He comes with experience and has Adams on his side, somewhat. Will this help him eliminate competition? Only time will tell.
"Blake: “Katie’s the one” everyone, after watching him say he’s crazy about Tayshia: #bachelorette #TheBachelorette," one tweeted, another shared: "Nooo! Not Blake! Gah! Looks like he makes it far too. That's annoying. Greg gets my vote and she also seems to like Justin and Andrew and Connor B. That's my top 4 predict unless Blake weasels his way in. #bachelorette." A third wrote: "Of course, of course, OF COURSE Blake shows up. That guy has been all about the attention and came since day one. Bleh."
