Blake Horstmann's scar wasn't noticeable on Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette.

Time moves quickly in the Bachelor universe, but Season 14 of The Bachelorette only premiered in May 2018. Blake, the runner-up for this season, didn't have the Twitterverse talking then for the same reasons he did during the Bachelor in Paradise premiere

Bachelor in Paradise fans were speculating if Blake had a hair transplant — or maybe just got an interesting haircut.

Bachelor Nation had some different theories about what appeared to be a scar on the back of Blake's head. Twitter user @KrissyBalls wrote, "Blake's hair transplant scar says everything I need to know about him."

"Is that Blake's real hair?" Twitter user @Jessik40929460 implored

Twitter user @laurenalyssa thought a barber might be to blame. She tweeted, "Ok who cuts Blake’s hair? They’re not doing him any favors."

There was even an entire Reddit thread devoted to Blake's apparent scar. One commenter theorized it could be "from his aggressive hat wearing," while another said they "just thought somebody had unsteady hands with the clippers."

Several Bachelor in Paradise fans seemed convinced, though, that Blake got a hair transplant or hair plugs.

Forget about Blake's hair, though — let's talk about his hookups!

Caelynn Miller-Keyes revealed that before filming Bachelor in Paradise, Colton Underwood set her up with Blake. Caelynn said she and Blake "hooked up" during the second day of Stagecoach, an annual music festival in Indio, Calif. 

According to Caelynn, though, Blake told her, "The day before I hooked up with you, I hooked up with Kristina [Schulman]."

But that's not all! According to Caelynn, Blake was actually DM'ing another Bachelor alum, Hannah Godwin, while he was still in bed with her. 

Things are only going to get worse for Blake on Bachelor in Paradise.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Bachelor franchise host Chris Harrison revealed "things get about as bad as they can" for Blake as Season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise progresses.

"There's nothing good about... the disaster that was Stagecoach, where he was with Kristina, the next night was with Caelynn," Chris said. "Not a good look. Not a great move. Not smart at all... Thinking he was somehow gonna get away with that and just stroll into Paradise and it was gonna be just this great time, he would move on, that is what is beyond me. That's what I don't understand. What was he thinking was going to happen?"

So who does Blake end up with!?

According to Reality Steve, Blake's reign as the king of Bachelor in Paradise might not last long. 

"I've heard Blake has done a lot of crying this season, is sorry for his actions, has made it known it’s Hannah he wants, but she’s with Dylan and looks to be fairly solid," RS wrote. "So I don’t know what the future has in store for Blake out there. Time will tell, but my guess is he’s leaving soon. Either on his own or won’t get a rose. We’ll see."

Catch Bachelor in Paradise Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
