Public discourse around the pair was revived after Blake was a guest on the Aug. 20 episode of the Reality Life with Kate Casey, where he said he had recently been back in touch with Becca. The former Bachelorette chose Garrett Yrigoyen over Blake in her series finale that aired in 2018, but she and Garrett split in August 2020.
Blake said on the Aug. 20 podcast, “We did kind of chat here and there, and we were back in touch within the last like six months.”
This led Becca to share her own take on things during the Aug. 26 episode of her Click Bait With Bachelor Nation podcast. She told co-hosts Joe Amabile and Natasha Parker that the pair have “always been friends” but implied it would be staying platonic.
“We’ve always been supportive of one another,” Becca explained. “In terms of the ‘talking,’ yeah, we’ve been in touch very sporadically, but nothing that I would say would warrant…a potential relationship.”
