They tried to keep it secret.
And because we know you’ve been waiting all day for this moment, we’ll just cut to the chase.
On whether Bachelor Blake would tell Carrie Bickmore real story tonight:
Blake: “I’m going to give you as much as I can and I’ve always tried to. At least fortunately this time I won’t be hand tied.”
Blake: “I’ve been requested by Sam not to mention anything about Louise and being respectful to Sam’s wishes I was doing just that.”
On whether Sam knew about Louise during the interview she did with The Project two weeks ago:
Blake: “She knew I had feelings for Louise absolutely and didn’t want that to be the focus.”
Carrie: “So what did she ask you to say, how did she ask you to deal with it?”
Blake: “Just not to mention it. And I was doing just that.”
On how Blake ‘woo-ed’ Louise after dumping her on live TV:
Louise: “He wrote me a very beautiful and heartfelt letter, explaining why and what happened and for me I wouldn’t be true to myself if I didn’t give this one last try.”
Carrie: “So when did you get that letter?”
Louise: “Before the finale.”
Carrie: “So you watched the finale knowing how Blake felt about you.”
Louise: “I did and in some way Blake felt he was protecting me by sending me home on that episode.”
