The Bachelorette’s Blake Colman lives with his parents

He’s the smooth-talking TV ‘villain’ who billed himself as an ‘investor and entrepreneur’ on The Bachelorette this month.

But the life of Blake Colman, 29, may not be as glamorous as he claims, with an insider saying he worked as a fridge and air conditioning mechanic before appearing on the show and he currently still lives with his parents.

‘He isn’t an ‘entrepreneur’- he is a refrigeration mechanic that lives with his parents,’ a well-placed source exclusively told Daily Mail Australia.

Despite the claims, Blake appears to be quite entrepreneurial given his list of business ventures.  

The newly minted reality star was pictured outside a home owned by his parents in the Perth suburb of Wembley several times in the past week – each time slipping into the driver’s seat of an Audi SUV.

Several vehicles were parked outside the modest home, including a pest control truck packed with cleaning supplies, parked next to a sports car and an Audi SUV.

Meanwhile, Blake’s LinkedIn account notes that he owned a company called Coolman Refrigeration – having started the business in January 2011. 

The official Facebook page for his business boasts 74 fans, and contains an offer for bargain air conditioning servicing at $99.

‘Servicing of air conditioners is the name of the game, comfort is game we play!’ the page reads.
