Is a new reality TV romance brewing? Blake Moynes raised his eyebrows during his recent visit to the Caribbean with Love is blind season 2 alum Nathalie Lee.
“The Crossover Nobody Asked For,” the Netflix personality teased via his Instagram Story on Sunday, July 24, along with a video of him and the Bachelorette alum of the golden hour.
The duo further fueled dating speculation when Moynes shared a preview of her “breakfast date” with Lee the following morning. In the video, the couple can be heard laughing as they eat. The Chicago resident then posted a photo of herself posing with Moynes on a beach after an “amazing dinner” at the Four Seasons Resort in Nevis.
While some fans were quick to link the duo, the wildlife manager explained that he and Lee were on the island for a conservation project with the Sea Turtle Conservatory. Moynes noted in an Instagram story on Monday, July 25 that their work is “important for sea turtles in hopes of learning and understanding and better management/protection” of the animals and their homes.
Lee continued to share with his followers how he and the Canadian went about their visit. “My favorite part of this trip was the meaningful conversations we had during our breaks, as seen here,” she captioned an Instagram Story clip on Monday, showing the two sitting together.
Moynes and Lee are engaged after finding love on reality TV. The Bachelor Nation alum offered the Katie Thurston after her Season 17 trip crashed mid-season, as Lee almost walked down the aisle Shayne Jansen in season 2 of Love is blind. The Netflix pair reconnected after the cameras stopped rolling, but they called it quits right away.
“She loves being part of the show, living the experience and meeting all the amazing people,” a source said exclusively. We are every week in March from the consultant, who previously denied rumors that she was dating another Season 2 alum Asin Perez. “But what she wanted was that she left with someone she could see herself marrying.”
Moynes, for his part, split from Thurston in October 2021. Season 25 Bachelor alum has moved on John Hersey shortly after her engagement ended – and Moynes admits she was blindsided by the whirlwind romance.
“I never thought there was any physical cheating there, but there was [was] obviously emotional [cheating] for him to change as quickly as he did. I feel foolish and stupid for allowing this to happen, to some extent,” he said in a November 2021 appearance on the “Talking It Out With Bachelor Nation” podcast. “I know they spend a lot of time together, but there’s no way. I really don’t know.
Thurston and Hersey called it quits earlier this year, and Moynes is ready to put the drama behind him. When it comes to finding love again, he said we in February, “I think I have a better understanding of exactly what I want [and] In my mind [that] makes me more selective, but the right person will come and I will know what it is because I have failed many times now. … I’m so happy where I’m at that I feel like I don’t want anyone to possibly take that away.
