The Bachelor's Blake Garvey has finally broken his silence on his split with Sam Frost. About time, Bachie!
The 31-year-old, who broke off his engagement to the 25-year-old financial consultant not long after they finished filming, told Perth Confidential: "Sadly, Sam and I have parted ways. I have so much love, care and respect for her but unfortunately the relationship hasn’t worked."
He added: "As with any break-up it’s not only heartbreaking but incredibly disappointing. We have been through an unforgettable experience together which I'll always cherish."
We'll get a chance to hear both sides of the story when Blake and Sam tell all on Monday night's episode of The Project. Judging by the promo above, it's going to be a fiery one… hello, Sam calls Blakey Boy "a jackass". Watch above!
Network Ten announced the pair's split on Friday, the morning after the "fairytale" finale aired with Blake down on bended knee and Sam saying "yes" to his proposal. It's all kinds of awkward watching it back now... see below.
On Friday, Sam tweeted: "People need to stop asking why we broke up. Trust me, I'm just as in the dark as you all are.. Blake is the one calling all the shots here." OUCH.
Sam has since released an official statement: "After many weeks of trying to make it work, unfortunately Blake decided to end our relationship. I am of course devastated but staying strong and looking forward to eventually finding the one."
As the nation reels from this reality-romance-gone-wrong, new details have emerged about Bachie's secret life... as a strip club owner!
We already knew Blake had a past as a topless waiter, but now Perth Confidential has confirmed the real estate auctioneer is also the sole owner of Perth's "premier, non-sleazy, male entertainment provider", Alpha Male Entertainment.
For as little as $110 an hour, you can hire one of Blake's topless waiters, including "chocolate-covered French sensation" Pierre and "sexy firefighter" Tai, who also has a "strawberries and cream show". No word yet on whether there's a #DirtyStreetPie routine in the works.
