Since Blake Moynes’ dramatic arrival, the wildlife manager has made quite the splash on Season 17 of The Bachelorette. And though Katie Thurston had plenty of fish in her Bachelorette-sea, the leading lady has had her eye on Blake for a while. As the finale quickly approaches, fans want to know if the superstar couple is engaged. Are if they are do they stay together?


It seems that fans have known for a while that Katie Thurston and Blaze Moynes get engaged. Reality Steve revealed that despite a hot-and-heavy final three, Blake ends on top, winning a final rose. The prediction was made at the beginning of the season, even before Blake’s “surprise” appearance.

The Bachelorette Season 17 spoilers and predictions. Will Katie end up with Blake? And how long will it last!

As spoilers go, it’s wild. Blake wasn’t even supposed to be on the show and here he is swooping in halfway through. His arrival was marked with plenty of questions, but as fans have noticed in recent episodes, the wildlife lover is a shoo-in for Katie’s heart. She’s had goo-goo eyes for the hunk and has even said he checked all her boxes – including his excellent kissing.

Blake Moynes And Katie Thurston Get Engaged … Are They Still Together?

According to Reality Steve, all signs point to Blake getting the final rose next week. Katie chooses him over Justin Glaze and Greg Grippo. The pair’s past is enough to spark a future, but for how long?

While Reality Steve is fairly sure Blake Moynes and Katie Thurston get engaged, he’s not 100-percent sure that they stay together. Before Blake appeared on the show, the spoiler king was positive Katie was engaged after filming concluded. Once Blake’s name was revealed, it seemed inevitable that he would last until the end. But not everything is always as it seems.

Blake has had a hard time keeping relationships in the past. He previously dated Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams, but both of those pairings ended quickly. Despite his history, Blake Moynes came to The Bachelorette Season 17 to win Katie’s heart, and it seems he achieves just that. Throughout Season 17, Blake said he was falling for Katie.

“I’m not in love right now,” Blake told Katie on Week 7, “but the way that we’re going, it’s [beep] inevitable.” Hopefully Blake stays committed to that love going into the final episode and beyond.

Last month, a Bachelor Nation fan posted a video on Instagram that showed Blake pursuing three of his Bachelorette sweethearts. Blake competed on both Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams’ season. That makes Katie’s season of Bachelorette his lucky number three. The fan wrote in the caption that “we can’t get rid of Blake but we ain’t mad about it.”

Blake responded to the post with a simple “Lollllllll” but his mom was a little less cryptic. “Always taught him ‘If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, and try again!!! He listened…” Blake’s mom commented on the post.

While some fans may overlook this, it seems undeniable that Blake’s mom is hinting at her son’s inevitable success. The fact that “try” is repeated three times can’t be a coincidence since Blake is now on his third try on The Bachelorette. Following the third “try” is a very poignant “succeed” which could indicate that Blake will succeed at winning Katie’s heart.

If things between Blake and Katie were over after filming, would Blake’s mom reference her son’s success? It’s certainly possible the mother of the groom gave us all a HUGE spoiler.

A Few Hints Of His Own

Blake has used his own Instagram account to indicate that he and Katie Thurston are engaged. The wildlife manager is known for posting cute pics of wild animals. But since his return to The Bachelorette, Blake’s Instagram feed is filled with domestic animals, instead. Blake has posted several photos of cats, which is an obvious reference to Katie’s love of those feline creatures.

“It’s OK to be a cat guy,” Blake captioned a post back in March. “Tell me why it’s not.” The post seemed like an attempt to woo Katie. Then, in June, Blake Moynes posted a pic of himself wearing a “Cat Daddy” T-shirt while holding his cat Bear. He captioned the post: “Honestly, just trying to even out the ratio on [cats and dogs].”

Katie and Blake first met on Instagram, exchanging heated DMs before his appearance on The Bachelorette. It’s possible he would try to win her over by appealing to her love of cats. #CatDaddy is all over Blake’s feed. If he is dedicated to cats, maybe he is dedicated to his one-and-only: Katie Thurston.

Nothing is set in stone. But the Season 17 finale of The Bachelorette will definitely be filled with drama.
