It looks like Blake Horstmann has a new woman in his life, whether it be platonic or something more. The former Bachelor in Paradise star was recently spotted out for drinks with reality star Holly Allen.
Holly, who previously appeared on Big Brother, doesn't seem to be losing sleep over her recent split from Jackson Michie. According to Us Weekly, she seemed happy as a clam in videos from her outing with the Bachelorette alum, posting a fun-loving clip featuring Blake to her Instagram Story. “ICED,” she captioned the video, showing him drinking a Smirnoff Ice.
Despite their seemingly flirty hangout, a source for Us Weekly says the pair are just friends. “Blake actually knew Holly before she went on Big Brother,” the insider declares. “They have mutual friends in Denver and were just out with friends catching up.”
The catch-up session comes just one week after Holly shared a lengthy statement about her split. “I had an amazing partner in that game I played. And I wouldn’t change the experiences for the world,” she wrote on June 18. “But some things are not meant to go beyond that. Sometimes fundamental character traits simply don’t line up."
Holly continued by saying, "Priorities don’t match. And that’s OK. This past year has been the hardest to date and has taught me about sense of self, security in who I am, and what I want for my future. I know I cannot compromise my own integrity. I know that I’m proud of myself, my accomplishments, and my roots.”
Whether it's with Blake or someone else, here's to hoping Holly finds her happiness, and the same goes for the Bachelor Nation star!
