'The Bachelorette' Season 17 Spoilers: Who is the man in the box? Episode reveals it's NOT Blake Moynes
Contrary to popular belief Blake Moynes is not the man in the box, he doesn't make an appearance till mid-season. Here's what to know
Update: Contrary to popular belief, Tayshia Adams' ex-boyfriend Blake Moynes is not the man in the box. The premiere episode of 'The Bachelorette' Season 17 revealed it is James Bonsali and Moynes is not scheduled to make an appearance till mid-season.
It's almost 'The Bachelorette' time ladies and gents! Though there's no Chris Harrison this season which in itself is drama, the producers went all out to create more of such moments that make the audiences go wow with surprise. Men turning up in goofy costumes that just don't make sense, to awkward introductions on the driveway with the woman of the season is just not cutting it anymore, for quite a few seasons now. Seems like the good people on Season 17 took all this into account and decided to bring back Blake Moynes - Bachelorette and now host Tayshia Adams' ex-boyfriend back into the picture, packaged inside a gift box.
Audiences still remember Moynes' angry rant from the time he was dumped by Clare Crawley on the previous season of 'Bachelorette'. “When I found out it was her (Clare), I bought a book on dementia and Alzheimers to understand what she was going through with her mom. I fully dove in to make sure that I could potentially be that fairytale ending if I got there. Why did I invest so much and not get anything in return?” he said and fans said he was "creepy and scary" for coming off this strong against a woman who decided to follow her heart and get engaged to Dale Moss.

Does the bachelorette simply forget how creepy and scary Blake Moynes is?? The man thought buying a book meant he deserved to “own” the right to a woman... he’s an absolute red flag and the fact that he may be a final for Katie’s season makes me sick.
Who is Blake Moynes on Season 17 of 'The Bachelorette'?
Blake Moynes is an entrepreneur and a wildlife manager from Ontario, Canada. "His dream woman is outdoorsy, beautiful and fun. She has to have a goofy side and be okay with his self-described 'potty mouth'. He says he has no problems talking about his emotions and wants a partner who will appreciate that he wears his heart on his sleeve," reads his bio. Bachelor Nation's lord and savior Reality Steve, the blogger who has been spoiling 'The Bachelor' and all its spinoffs since times immemorial has revealed Moynes is one of the top four contestants on Thurston's season. Third time's the charm? We're soon to find out.
Joining him will be John Hersey, Greg Grippo, and another unnamed suitor who will complete the top lineup. Thurston was engaged to one of these men, according to the blogger. Moynes making it to the top means he's half the person he was during his infamous rant. Like the rest of Bachelor Nation, we too will be watching him a little more closely as he pursues love on national television for the second time.
'The Bachelorette' Season 17 will premiere on June 7, 2021 at 8 pm ET only on ABC.
