THE Bachelorette star Katie Thurston “may look for love again” on Bachelor in Paradise.
The 30-year-old is “embarrassed” by her split from Blake Moynes, a source exclusively told The Sun.
On Monday, Katie revealed she and Blake, 30, split just two months after announcing their engagement.
A source exclusively spoke to The Sun about how Katie is handling the breakup, sharing: “Katie is embarrassed, for sure.
“This is not the outcome she wanted and she really, really wanted to find her person.
“But they both appear to love their newfound fame so I wouldn't be surprised if either, or both, end up on Bachelor In Paradise next year.”
Noting that Blake currently lives in Canada, the informant added: “Blake could even end up on the Canadian Bachelor.
“That's not off the table.”
The source concluded: “I'm certain they would both say 'yes' to the opportunity if it presents itself but right now they both need time to process this breakup."
The pair met when Katie led season 17 of The Bachelorette, while they became engaged during the season finale.
Both Katie and Blake broke the news of their split with an identical message on their Instagram accounts on Monday, which read: "It is with mutual love and respect that we have decided to go our separate ways.
"We are so grateful for the moments we shared together and the entire journey that has unfolded this year, but we ultimately have concluded that we are not compatible as life partners, and it is the most caring choice for both of us to move forward independently.
"We ask for kindness and privacy as we both navigate this transition. Both of us will forever want the best for one another and ask you to please support us in our decision."
The pair confirmed the split following speculation from fans that they had called off their engagement.
Rumors emerged earlier this month after fans noticed they weren't liking each other's social media posts.
At the time, Katie hit back at speculation by tweeting: "Imagine your fiancé has been on his stories for weeks in Kenya working his ass off and yet this is what some people notice."
The Bachelorette star shared a screengrab of a fan's comment which read: "You and Blake are not liking each other's posts. Is all ok?"
Katie's comment could be seen underneath reading "lol yes."
'NUMBER OF ISSUES'
The Sun recently revealed that Katie and Blake’s split was due to “distance,” as she lives in San Diego and he resides in Canada.
Distance won only one of their issues, as the insider also claimed: "Another big thing they had issues with were their communication styles.
“Katie is much quicker to call little things out whereas Blake just lets things slide.
“Her outbursts eventually became too much for him to handle."
