The romance rumours started when the reality TV pair were spotted spending time in Coffs Harbour earlier this month.
Tara confirmed the 'date' with an Instagram post, writing: "Coffee and selfies with this absolute legend @dereckthesloth. So nice running into you at Coffs man ! Have to have bevvies soon #thebachelorette."
That soft toy she's cuddling? You guessed it - it belongs to Blake and actually made an appearance on last week's episode of The Bachelorette.
With Blake still trying to win Sophie Monk’s heart on-screen, the pair has been keeping their budding relationship a secret, reports Woman’s Day.
Though the fact that they've had coffee together certainly doesn't mean they're an item, given the multiple ex-Bachie contestant hookups in the past, we certainly wouldn't be surprised.
As for Blake’s future with Sophie? A source told Daily Mail that the 29-year-old comes forth on the show.
