WHO Magazine caught up with Bachelor In Paradise's Blake Colman and the reality TV star revealed exactly what happened with Laurina Fleure, his secret romance with Megan Marx and confirmed he has also been receiving messages from Married At First Sight alum, Davina Rankin.
WHO: Tell us the truth about the Lenora moment?
[Laughs] To be honest I think I’m just going to be cast in tv shows for one liners. Last time it was the Viagra tree, now it’s Lenora.
WHO: A few guys have come out and said you were sick, was that the actual case or were they just having your back?
Nah I was super sick I was bedridden all day – with heatstroke and some other sickness. I didn’t have medics to come see me so when I did get out of my room it wasn’t until night time at that cocktail party. Yeah, and when I got to the rose ceremony I almost passed out and we had to stop filming. Then after I had a drink of water and they asked me to go up and present my rose and then yeah that’s when I said “Lenora.”
WHO: Are you fully over Laurina now?
Yeah, I got over her really quickly… I was into her at that point but you know when you’re in that sort of space you’ve got to move on quickly and I know it’s not shown but me and Meg (Megan Marx). I was super into her. She’s just a legend. She’s like super chill, she hates drama and stuff and she’s just really mellow.
WHO: What’s something that you learned about Laurina that you didn’t really expect?
If you ask everyone about Laurina, she’d just disappear and just go hang out in her room doing her own thing. She didn’t exactly hang around all of us. We’d all be out having a good time, so when she talked about me not communicating – I was the one who was out with everyone. I don’t know she’s a real spiritual sort of girl who does her own thing. We’re just two different people, I hope she finds what she’s looking for – I mean she does have a list of a hundred things to tick off so hopefully, she finds the one.
WHO: Would you do things differently in hindsight?
I tried something different (with Laurina), but as soon as Meg rocked up I would have broken it off with Laurina and spoken to Megan.
WHO: Would you go back on another Bachelor or Bachelorette show?
I’d do Bachie In Paradise again.
WHO: You were pretty controversial, do you think you would date another controversial reality star like Davina Rankin from Married At First Sight?
[Laughs] She actually slid into my DMs (direct messages) the other day! I’ve been taking the piss on Instagram after the whole “Lenora” thing and everyone was messaging me in response to the memes and she just said “dead” with a crying eyes emoji.
WHO: Would you date her?
I don’t really think so… I don’t think she’s my type. Plus she cheated on Ryan…
WHO: Are you dating anyone now?
No. I’m single, I’m ready to mingle.
