'Bachelor Pad' contestants Holly Durst and Blake Julian are engaged, report says
ABC'S "Bachelor Pad" brought back former contestants from the "Bachelor" franchise to compete for $250,000 and "possibly a second chance at love" and it appears one pair has found just that.
Holly Durst, 28, and Blake Julian, 28, who flirted heavily throughout the season, are now engaged to be married, according to People magazine.
Julian appeared on season 7 of "The Bachelorette" while Durst appeared on "The Bachelor" season 12. Durst is reportedly planning to move to South Carolina, where Blake works as a dentist.
Durst voted her now-fiancé off the show this week, but handed him a note during the rose ceremony which said it wasn't the end. Once the two were away from the mansion, their relationship progressed, but they both had some on-set baggage.
Durst's former fiancé Michael Stagliano, who appeared on "The Bachelorette" season 5, was also a contestant on the show and revealed that he still had feelings for her. Meanwhile, Julian was involved with another contestant, Melissa Schreiber, from "The Bachelor" season 15, through most of the season and it didn't end well.
Schreiber recently told People that she is more than over Julian, "I have no feelings whatsoever. I'm over it. He's still Tweeting nasty things about me. We had some email correspondence that was very passive aggressive on his end. I just want to be done with him. Blake is not the kind of human being I would want to be with. He's not a good person."
The season 2 finale of "Bachelor Pad" airs on Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
