Why Blake Horstmann took Tayshia Adams and never Hannah Godwin on his first ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ date
“Why did you take Tayshia on your first one-on-one date instead of Hannah G?” requested one fan.
“OK so this is gonna be a long one…But f*ck it I’m off contract…” he started.
“This is a funny question bc Tayshia is amazing and anybody would be lucky to have a date with her, but I understand given the circumstances lol,” he wrote.
Then, Horstmann acquired into it.
“When I received the date card I 100% planned to take Hannah. I even left my interview saying I was gonna take Hannah. When I walked out of the interview 3 producers sat me down for close to an hr and convinced me to take Tayshia. It was 100% my decision they didn’t force me or anything, but at that point I really truly did trust the producers and that they had my best interest,” he wrote.
Today, nevertheless, Horstmann feels Bachelor producers didn’t and don’t care about him.
“Obviously I was very wrong and they didn’t want me to be happy with Hannah bc that would have very much ruined there plans for the season…” he wrote.

But all’s nicely that ends nicely as a result of Godwin ended up with Dylan Barbour (they’re nonetheless fortunately engaged), and Horstmann feels they’re an ideal pair.
“Everything worked out tho bc Hannah and Dylan are perfect for each other and will live happily ever after,” he wrote.
