Bachelorette: Blake Moynes Goes On A Date With Love Is Blind Star Natalie

Love may be in the air for The Bachelorette star Blake Moynes and Love is Blind's Natalie Lee after the two recently spent time together while saving sea turtles. Blake was a contestant on Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adam’s season of The Bachelorette, but was eventually sent home by Tayshia before hometown dates. Blake got his second chance at love with the following season’s lead Katie Thurston. Though the couple got engaged in the finale, they broke up a few months later. Blake has been open about his passion for wildlife conservation and his hesitation to start a new relationship following the drama surrounding his latest breakup with Katie.


Natalie struggled in her relationship with Shayne Jansen on Love is Blind season 2 after he was not forthcoming in his feelings for another podmate, Shaina Hurley. The couple got engaged in episode 3 but continued to fight throughout the season over consistent miscommunications. Love is Blind couple Natalie and Shayne appeared ready to walk down the aisle in episode 9, and although Shayne said, “I do,” Natalie broke off their relationship because of a dramatic fight the night before. The couple tried reconnecting multiple times after the show, but like Blake’s, their tumultuous relationship was unsuccessful, and ended for good.

Surprising fans of both franchises, Blake and Natalie were recently seen spending time together. In a video on her Instagram story, Natalie shared a sunset video of her and Blake and the caption, “the crossover nobody asked for @blakemoynes,” which Blake immediately reposted to his own story. Later, Blake posted a candid video of their “successful morning” breakfast date, where he mentioned her love for sea turtles and shortly posted another video of the two of them walking down to the beach to describe their upcoming turtle adventure. Bachelor Nation alum Blake tagged Natalie in each of his sequential story updates of their nighttime adventure, and also shared the continuation of their adventure the following morning, as Natalie can be seen filming for her own story. Blake linked Natalie’s Instagram story with the caption, “have Natalie explain this inside joke on her stories,” after they laughed about Natalie wishing she was a barnacle on a turtle.

The pair’s respective Instagram stories seem to indicate a budding relationship. Both Natalie and Blake share a passion for wildlife, and the two reality TV stars appear to have a lot in common. Natalie is featured in most of Blake’s new story updates, and it looks like the only stories which the Love is Blind star is not featured in are the ones she has filmed for Blake. Blake's earlier stories show him breaking down the pair’s turtle adventure, and later stories show that the pair are staying in the same hotel. Natalie and Blake have both had their hearts broken, so it's understandable that they may not want to jump into a serious relationship just yet. Still, the chemistry between the two is undeniable.

Blake and Natalie seem to be on their way to becoming the next new couple. The reality TV duo's love for turtles is not all they share, as the budding couple laughed together at breakfast, nighttime walks, and morning trips back to the beach. Though both have commented on their hesitation for new relationships, they may find comfort and healing in each other, as it looks like they have connected stronger with each other than with their former flames. The Bachelorette star Blake and Love is Blind star Natalie haven't officially confirmed that they are dating, but many fans of both shows are rooting for the unlikely pair.
