Bachelor Blake Garvey Has A *Secret* Girlfriend

They've been together for two years.

He’s in love..again. Former Bachelor star Blake Garvey has made headlines once more after the identity of his mystery girlfriend of two years was revealed. 

The infamous Bachelor star and his new lover by the name of Tania Mondon have been spotted dining together in Perth. Allegedly a source has told Daily Mail Australia that Garvey and his new 23-year-old girlfriend have been together for two years. This would mean that the duo got together shortly after Garvey’s 18 month “suffocating” romance with Louis Pillidge ended in 2016.

There is little information about Tania however what we do know is that she has been identified as a Crown Towers employee and she has an Instagram following of just over 2000. Her bio reads: ‘Do everything with love and passion. Fashion x Family x Friends x Music x Travel Perth, Western Australia. Little Creole Mix’, providing the slightest glimpse into her personal life and interests. However Mondon’s profile is now on a private setting. 

This isn’t the first time that the ‘love rat’ has made headlines regarding his dating life. In 2014 the nation was stunned when Garvey dumped his ‘chosen one’ Samantha Frost less than 24 hours after his proposal aired on the season finale of The Bachelor. Yet that wasn’t the last we had heard from the former stripper turned reality star. Garvey then went on to declare his love for Louise Pillidge – who was the second runner-up on the show – and the pair officially became a couple while Blake became the most hated man in Australia.

Blake has managed to stay largely out of the public eye since ending his relationship with Pillidge.

At the time he highlighted to Today Tonight that the immense stress of public scrutiny was a leading factor in their break up.

“I’ve gone through bouts of depression and I know we’ve both gone through some acute anxiety,” he admitted. 

“You get looks and you know that you’re starting a series of conversations in the room just because you’ve entered it. That and many [other] factors make you really very self-conscious.”

Both Garvey and Mondon are yet to publicly confirm their relationship.
