With the end of Bachelor in Paradise season 9 approaching, audiences are curious about who ends up with whom this season, including Blake Moynes. Blake and Jess Girod hit it off on day one in Mexico, but things got rocky soon after.
Who Does Blake Moynes End Up With on ‘Bachelor in Paradise’?
While Blake and Jess became a couple at the very beginning of the season, Reality Steve said that the couple didn't get engaged and did not leave Paradise together. Instead, he revealed Blake chose to self-eliminate from the competition. Turns out, he was correct once again.
The reality TV blogger didn’t have many extra details to reveal regarding Blake’s departure at the time. On July 18, 2023, he wrote, “Blake Moynes was involved with Jess Girod during filming, but same as Rachel, at some point self-eliminated. He wasn’t eliminated at a rose ceremony."
Blake Moynes' Ex-Fiancée Showed Up During Filming
In an episode of BiP season 9, Katie Thurston, Blake’s ex-fiancée, arrived on the beach to have a talk with him. This marked the first time he had seen Katie since their split, and it definitely contributed to why Blake ended up leaving the beach single.
However, Blake and Jess had already begun to experience some bumps in the road even without the arrival of Katie. During episode 5, which aired on October 26, the couple sat down for a serious talk.
Blake told Jess, “I’m trying to be optimistic, but I feel the unsureness in you, and that makes me worried. We aren’t fully trying. We’re, like, going through the emotions and it’s, like, cute and fun. And there’s moments when you make me feel really good, but I’m not fully into it because you’re not fully into it.”
When she said she wasn’t sure about their connection, Blake decided to give her some space. While the couple eventually came back together, nothing developed into a long-term relationship.
Blake Left ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Single
Both Jess and Blake explored connections with other people during their time on the show. Jess developed a connection with Tyler Norris, from Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia’s season of The Bachelorette, and Blake went on a date with Genevie Mayo, who audiences met during Zach Shallcross’ season of The Bachelor.
No love connections were made, however, and Blake and Jess ended up back together once again before ending their romance. Ultimately, he decided to break things off with Jess shortly after Katie's appearance on the show.
“Everything’s pointing to as much as we want this to work, it’s not going to,” he told Jess during their breakup, adding that they were “kind of going in circles” with their relationship by that point.
