After 18 months together, reality TV heartthrob, turned villain, Blake Garvey has split with his runner up contestant Louise Pillidge. Blake surprised everyone after he broke up with first choice Bachelor winner Sam Frost, breaking her heart and fleeing the country with Louise.

The pair have kept a low profile the past year as Frosty picked herself up and went on to greener pastures, steeling the nations heart as she found her one true love in Sasha on the first season of The Bachelorette. It all worked out for the best:

Just bloody beautiful.

Leaving his life in the ‘adult entertainment‘ industry and becoming an Auctioneer, 33 year old Blake spoke with New Idea to share the news ‘exclu$ively’ – saying that things have been on the rocks for some time. Why Blake is choosing to air out his dirty laundry publicly is beyond us, ohhh wait – they got paid. Ahhhhh. He told the mag:

‘We were walking on eggshells around each other, always trying to say the right thing…”

Despite all that, Lousie, who has siezed her time in the limelight to become a lifestyle blogger, last posted an image of the pair around a month ago (below) and things seemed rosy. She told the magazine that the news came as a bit of a shock, saying that it was Blake’s decision to call it quits and said that she’s still struggling to come to terms with the fact she was not his first choice on the show. She says in the interview,

I’ve been crying, numb and angry

Bloody devo!


…We’ll be crossing our fingers something comes of this.

Farewell former lovers.
