In other news, Blake, who is now engaged to Holly Durst, and his partner on the show Erica Rose are now speaking out on their recent eviction. Blake talks about the cra cra Melissa, and forming a romance with Holly, while Erica reveals whether or not she regrets coming on too
desperate strongly onto Blake. Excerpts from their interviews below –
Did smooching Melissa kill your game early on?
Blake: I definitely regret kissing Melissa [because] her strong emotional reaction was a pretty big death blow to get away from. It followed me constantly. She rallied the whole house against me.
Was her reaction justified in any way?
Blake: I never meant to lead Melissa on. We discussed before the date that I wasn’t looking for a relationship. I thought she understood so I was really shocked by her response [to me] flirting with another girl.
Should you have waited to pursue Holly outside the house for Michael’s sake?
Blake It never crossed my mind to ignore her. It seemed like an impossibility. Everyone has exes. Unfortunately her ex was in the same house. She told me repeatedly she was single. He admitted they weren’t together.
Were you aware Michael was still that into Holly?
Blake: Michael and I never became friends. He never confided in me. I didn’t see what he was going through.
Were you ashamed when you realized how aggressively you came on to Blake?
Erica: I know I was coming on strongly, but sometimes I like to push the envelope and I had good reasons. I thought it’d be good to keep Blake away and give the illusion that he wasn’t interested in Holly anymore. If I would have known that Blake and Holly were developing such strong feelings for each other, I wouldn’t have interfered. I believe in girl code. They’re cute.
The finale of Bachelor Pad season 2 airs tonight on ABC! It is 3-hours long and will begin airing at 8/7c. You can click here for spoilers on who won!
