Cheeky Colman changed
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.
