Cheeky Col­man changed

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page -

HAV­ING never watched an episode of The Bach­e­lorette, Su­bi­aco en­tre­pre­neur Blake Col­man (right) did some light re­search and thought he would be hang­ing with “a bunch of douches”.

What the peren­nial stir­rer walked away with was life­long friend­ships (ex­cept two) and an ex­pe­ri­ence he said he would do all over again in a heart­beat.

The cheeky 29-year-old, who wooed So­phie Monk with a box filled with gifts and his buff bod in noth­ing but a fig leaf on a group date, said he had the time of his life.

“I never watched the show be­fore and thought I was go­ing to walk into a bunch of douches, so I went in all guns blaz­ing,” he said.

“All the boys got along so well and we were all back­ing each other. I came out a dif­fer­ent per­son and it was so good meet­ing So­phie, we will have a bright fu­ture.”

Cur­rently in Perth “sort­ing out stuff” Col­man, whose last re­la­tion­ship ended be­cause they were go­ing in dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions, de­scribed his dat­ing his­tory as pretty stan­dard, de­spite one awk­ward one where his date would not speak.

“I wouldn’t say it was bad, but I did go on a date where the girl didn’t say did­dly squat all day,” he said.
