The relationship history of Giannina Gibelli and Blake Horstmann from All-Star Shore.
Giannina Gibelli featured on Season 1 of Love is Blind and became engaged to Damian Powers, however, the pair split up on their wedding day. They rejoined after the program but split up again in 2021 after he was suspected of cheating on her with another reality star. Despite Powers’ denial, Gibelli felt “truly, very wonderful” and “so at peace” following their breakup. While shooting for the All Star Shore last year, she met Blake Horstmann, who ended as the runner-up on the 2018 season of The Bachelorette. Gibelli shared the following information about their first encounter with E! News:
“I’d never seen the Bachelor series or anything like that, so I had no idea who he was.” He felt familiar to me, and he simply smiled at me, and that’s how I met him there on the beach.”
She went on to say:
“He’s courteous, but I don’t believe people realize how hilarious, impulsive, and committed he is.” He’s doing his DJ thing now, and just seeing him hit all these new heights and ambitions, I don’t think many people realize he has it in him, but he certainly does.”
The duo did not declare their connection since their future endeavor had not yet been revealed. Fans were quick to notice, however, that the two were uploading photos from the same place on Instagram after they spent the New Year together. In response to a fan’s complaint about their purportedly identical photos, she wrote:
“I can’t formally publish him rn since we worked on a project together that has yet to be disclosed.”
Gibelli spoke information about their connection after the launch of All-Star Shore. Throughout the next competitive reality series, viewers will also get to experience their growing love story. She told People about their love story being portrayed on the show:
“I believe it’s reasonable to say we weren’t bashful expressing how we felt about one other and how at ease we were with each other. During the performance, you’ll see some individuals saying, ‘Get a room.’ Could you kindly solve this over there? I am missing my guy. I’m missing my hubby. You make me envious.’ You could grow angry with us towards the end, but we were in heaven. We were on our honeymoon or whatever. So… I don’t really care.”
All-Star Shore premieres on Paramount + on Wednesday and includes reality TV stars from Love Island, Jersey Shore, Bachelor in Paradise, and more in a first-of-its-kind party competition series.
