Katie Thurston’s upcoming season of The Bachelorette is currently filming in New Mexico, and whomst was spotted wandering around the set? That’d be Blake Moynes, who you might remember from Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams’ joint season(s).
At this point it’s unclear why Blake is on set, but that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate wildly. IMO, he’s either 1) seeking closure with Tayshia, who’s co-hosting this season alongside Kaitlyn Bristowe, or 2) he’s a late addition to Katie’s cast. Would be a little weird, but lord knows producers love forcing random Bachelor alums to quarantine, show up in large white vans, and immediately get rejected!
Either way, Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti confirmed that Blake is 100 percent on set, even sharing photos on their Almost Famous podcast’s Insta.

“A lot of you were speculating because of his silence on social media over the last week or so that perhaps he joined the season,” Ashley said, per Us Weekly. “We here exclusively have got the pictures to prove it. We did it. We confirmed it.”
And actually, Ashely made a good point: Just because we haven’t seen Ben lurking around set ’til now, doesn’t mean he’s a super late addition—especially since the first cocktail party went down pretty recently on March 22.
“If he’s just been spotted now, if he’s entering late, he’s not entering too late,” she said. “He’s probably entering after the third rose ceremony. I would say this looks like he’s going onto a one-on-one or he’s just entering.”
Seems like it’d be kinda awkward for Blake to compete for Katie’s heart when Tayshia is out here planning their dates, but again: lord knows the Bachelorette has done thirstier things!
