Blake is no stranger to The Bachelor franchise. He first appeared on Season 16 of The Bachelorette and tried to win Clare Crawley's heart, but once Clare quit the show early to be with Dale Moss, he decided to pursue a romance with Tayshia Adams last year.
Although Blake and Tayshia seemed to connect, the Bachelorette sent him home a few bachelors shy of a hometown date.
Blake therefore must have viewed Katie as his third shot at love, and he even called her "The One" in a promo ABC recently released of his arrival on the show.
Blake apparently stands outside Katie's window with a boombox in his hands, taking on a classic romantic gesture out of the movies -- but will Katie fall for it and open her heart to him?
"I'm ready to find love, and not just, like, the temporary kind. I'm talking forever, my husband, and I'm in a place in my life where I feel like I'm the best version of me," Katie said after being cast as The Bachelorette earlier this year.
So what do we know about Blake already and does he have what it takes to win Katie's heart?
Until viewers can watch Katie and Blake meet face to face on The Bachelorette, let's learn some information about this interesting bachelor.
Below is a list of seven facts Reality TV World has compiled about Blake Moynes.
"I care for Blake, but when I looked in his eyes, I was looking for more validation and confidence in the situation. I don't see it. Maybe that's why we haven't progressed like some of the other relationships," Tayshia shared in a confessional.
Tayshia said both of their hearts were fully open, but then she suddenly realized, "I don't think he's my guy -- and I have to tell him that."
Blake told Tayshia that he needed more time to show her all that he has to offer, but Tayshia believed they had run out of time with family dates right around the corner.
"I wish we had more time. I just don't know if we can get there. It's not that you're not an incredible guy, I just don't know if the timing was just off for us. I think it's time to go our separate ways," Tayshia told Blake.
Tayshia said Blake has all the qualities she wanted in her person and he's "such a great guy," but she knew her heart was "more invested" in some of her other relationships, including her romance with the eventual winner Zac Clark.
Tayshia broke down into tears upon saying goodbye to Blake and nearly dropped down on the ground hysterical with emotion after he left.
"I didn't see that coming -- at all," Blake said following his ouster. "How did that change so quickly? She still has no idea -- no clue -- I'm, like, so crazy about her."
Tayshia said the goodbye "really hurt" but she felt confident in her decision.
Following his elimination, Blake told Us Weekly that he thought Tayshia "had her guard up" with him because he had feelings for Clare at the start of the season.
Blake said he actually saw a lot of "potential" with Tayshia, adding, "If it was Tayshia from the beginning, I think my story would have been a little bit different."
Blake sells official wildlife-inspired merchandise, mainly T-shirts, on his website blakemoynesshop.com.
Some of the proceeds raised from Blake's shop are apparently donated to wildlife conservation, and every item purchased plants a tree.
All of the products are made from organic or recycled materials. One T-shirt, for instance, was made from 7-12 recycled plastic water bottles.
Blake's interest in wild and marine animals extends to animated ones as well
Blake is a huge fan of the Ninja Turtles. He says he loves the Ninja Turtles as much as the Ninja Turtles love pizza.
Blake also enjoys a good picnic, and he apparently volunteers with a different endangered species every year.
Katie has revealed her pre-show relationship with Blake
Katie shared with Us Weekly in a recent video interview that she actually spoke to Blake before leaving Washington to film her The Bachelorette season in New Mexico.
"I definitely knew who he was," Katie told Us. "[He is] also [Tayshia Adams]' ex-boyfriend! So that's weird."
Katie explained, "We had chatted before, but usually what happens is, like, the guys will reach out to the women once they're eliminated [from The Bachelor] and be like, 'Good luck, you did great.' Like very generic, you know?"
"And so to see him, I was like, 'Why is he here?' Like, 'What's happening?'"
When asked if she had any hesitations about Blake joining her cast late in the game, Katie dodged the question.
"I mean, we have to see if that's even why he's there," she teased. "Like I said, he's Tayshia's ex-boyfriend, so I don't know what's happening."
