Katie, 30, told Us Weekly: “I definitely knew who he was, which also Tayshia’s ex-boyfriend! So that’s weird.
“We had chatted before, but usually what happens is, like, the guys will reach out to the women once they’re eliminated and be like, ‘Good luck, you did great.’
“Like very generic, you know? And so to see him, I was like, ‘Why is he here?’ Like, ‘What’s happening?’”
Katie played coy on whether sparks fly with Blake, saying: “I mean, we have to see if that’s even why he’s there.”

“Like I said, he’s Tayshia’s ex-boyfriend, so I don’t know what’s happening.”
Blake isn’t one of the 30 admirers who set out to win over Katie’s heart in the first episode.
The Canadian hunk appears midway through the season, making quite the entrance by blaring out a boombox outside Katie’s balcony.

After Clare’s season of the show ended 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 and joining Tayisha Adams’ season with the remaining 16 guys.

But in the end, he didn’t make it to the final cut when competing to win Tayshia heart either.
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.
However, Blake did say that while he never got closure he’s “moved past” his feelings for her.
This appears to be true as Reality Steve has reported that Blake makes into Katie’s top four.

Earlier this week, she revealed she falls in love “more than once” on the show and has sex in the fantasy suite.
While viewers are loving her honest attitude, ABC execs are reportedly more wary.

Katie’s frequent social media activity mixed with her strong personality has raised concerns for bosses they try to avoid another scandal heading into this season, a source told The Sun.
The insider explained: ”Execs are on edge going into this season understandably. There’s a lack of control with Katie they have not felt with previous Bachelorette’s.
“She’s outspoken and very active on social media plus with recent drama, they are being more careful than ever with how they conduct things.”

According to the source, “They’re concerned her social media will reveal too much about the season or even worse, her activity will get her into trouble.”
“Katie’s always posting about herself and saying little things here and there about her season and the guys.
“The last thing anyone on the show wants is another scandal, especially with the lead. But Katie has been posting more than any other lead and it’s getting out of hand.”
The informant alleged that Katie has been “warned” by an exec to “tone it down” when the show begins airing – which she “agreed to do.”
