Blake Horstmann decided it was time to go all-in with Kristina during last night’s episode of Bachelor In Paradise. Even though he had weeks to figure out his feelings for Kristina, it wasn’t until last night that he wanted to show her that he was dedicated to her and their relationship.
But his past actions at Stagecoach and hurting her had her questioning how she could ever trust him fully again. She wanted to do baby steps, but when he arranged for a cute private date for them, he was surprised to learn that she wanted out of their relationship.
Within minutes after leaving the date, Kristina announced that she was done with the show and leaving paradise. There was no reason for her to stick around, as she knew the finale was coming up and it was either go home or pursue a proposal.
Reality Steve reveals that he doesn’t think anything happened between them once they got home. However, Steve does predict that Kristina will find love with someone in the Bachelor Nation.
As for Blake, he appears that he’s currently single, as he hasn’t announced anything. Reality Steve doesn’t know who he’s dating either, but unlike some of the other Bachelor stars, he hasn’t been spotted with someone special.
When the episode wrapped, Blake posted a lengthy Instagram post, talking about how the summer hadn’t gone as he had expected.

To say paradise was rough for me is an understatement. I have no one to blame but myself for that. It’s not easy putting yourself and all of your mistakes out there for the world to see. No matter the differences all of us had on that beach, I will always have respect for each and every one of you, being brave enough to be yourselves and chase the love we all feel we deserve. Never forget that we are all human and not characters on television. I want to thank those of you that have sent me kind words and encouraging messages. Those have helped more than you will ever know. I hope that this is not the end of my story and I can look back at this summer and be grateful for the lessons learned and the friends made #bekind #imstillnotgonnastopdancing #imstillgoingtostagecoach

In the post, he also joked about still going to Stagecoach next year, a music festival where he hooked up with several of the Bachelor In Paradise contestants. It sounds like he isn’t slowing down at all when it comes to finding love, but Stagecoach may not be the place to find it.
Bachelor In Paradise airs tonight at 8/7c on ABC.
