    Viewers have pointed out that it may be a little strange to watch Blake compete for Katie while his ex is hosting the show especially when Blake said that he felt he never got closure during the Men Tell All.

    BLAKE THEN HAD THE HOTS FOR TAYSHIA

    As Clare left the show after only 12 days, Blake confessed that he started stress balding.

    He said, “Nothing made sense to me. Now it does. But at the time, I was literally shook. I was distraught. I started stress balding in the shower because I didn’t know that was going on.”

    But Blake seemed to get over his initial shock and tried again staying on for Tayisha’s season with the remaining 16 guys.

    In the end, he didn’t make it to the final cut when competing to win Tayshia heart either and she sent him home tearful.
