‘The Bachelorette’: Blake Moynes’ Battle To Win Katie Thurston’s Family Over

Katie Thurston and Blake Moynes may be enjoying their time together, but there could still be some way to go when it comes to getting Katie’s wider family to approve. 

‘The Bachelorette’: Blake Moynes’ Battle To Win Katie Thurston’s Family Over

That is according to Blake himself. While Katie’s family is happy at the prospect of her finding a partner, there were still some unanswered questions that caused a bit of concern on the season finale. First of all, Katie’s mother and auntie asked Blake about where he was planning to live.

Not only that, but they also questioned Blake’s approach to marriage. Given that neither Blake nor Kate were able to give a satisfactory answer, it left a lot of tension. But with the show having been concluded, Blake has managed to work his way around those issues.

In an interview with Us Weekly, he said: “I can laugh at it now. … It was a very intimidating moment. It was hard to navigate it. I’m excited to see her [Katie’s auntie] and, you know, have a drink and talk and laugh about it.” The primary concern for the family was the fact that Blake may have considered moving away from Katie’s family.

Given that the pandemic has caused mass uncertainty, there were obvious concerns if Katie were to uproot herself from everyone. In addition, not everyone had the best view of Blake. Many fans felt that Greg Grippo, prior to his shocking exit, was odds on favourite to win.

Nevertheless, Blake could see it from the other point of view. He added: “She just wanted the best for Katie. And so, she went about that in her own way, and she didn’t get the answer she wanted clearly, but hopefully, we’re OK now moving forward.”

And gaining approval from Katie’s auntie was going to be an essential part of determining whether Blake would end up with Katie. Katie’s following comments confirmed as much: “[If he] wasn’t going to be able to survive Aunt Lindsey, he was not going to fit with my family.” Let us hope that things can continue to remain positive. If the family have approved, then who is anyone else to say otherwise.
