Blake Horstmann, will you accept this rose? The 29-year-old sales rep has stolen Becca Kufrin's heart on The Bachelorette, and thanks to his good looks, openness, and kind soul, he's stolen our hearts as well. Blake may have gotten the first one-on-one date this season, but after expressing his insecurities to Becca before hometown dates, it looks like those fears are still taking over. In a sneak peek at Monday night's episode, Blake confronts Becca yet again, as he struggles to accept that she may be in love with one of the other final three men.
"Is she kissing and is she hugging and is she blushing the way she is with me with the other guys?" Blake asks in the exclusive E! News clip. "I know they don't love her like I do, so that doesn't bother me. It's more like, does she love them?"
It's one of the true tests every person who's been a part of The Bachelor franchise needs to deal with, but for Blake, he's still looking for that reassurance from Becca, and we'll have to wait and see if she gives it to him. During the Fantasy Suites episode, he addresses his concerns to her again.
"I feel stronger for you and more in love with you than I was for my ex and to know how bad it hurts, that heartbreak, how bad this heartbreak could hurt is where the real fear sets in," Blake tells Becca. "You obviously have really strong connections with other guys and so, I can't really ignore that anymore."
Listen, we absolutely love Blake. He's shown Becca a side to him that many contestants are not so quick to do on the show, and he does it with such sincerity that we admire. The only question that remains is: will Blake let the fear of striking out keep him from playing the game?
