Listen: The Twins discuss Sunday night’s episode, in which Tracey chose to stay with Dean for reasons we don’t understand.
Tracey told Nova 96.9 FMs’ Fitzy and Wippa on Monday that the two WA natives got together as teens and Blake was her first ever boyfriend.
“We were high school sweethearts together. We went out for about a year and a half,” she told the radio duo.
Tracey said she hasn’t spoken to Blake since before he went on The Bachelor, but did get a surprise watching the show.
"I was like, wow, he still has some of the same lines," she laughed.
