Bachelor Blake finds love with Louise

THE show might be over, but the quest for love must go on and it appears The Bachelor Blake Garvey has found love with second runner up Louise Pillidge.   

The couple are reportedly planning to make their relationship public with a paid interview with magazine New Idea, who shared the news on Twitter this morning.   

31-year-old real estate agent Garvey became Australia's most talked about man last week when he proposed to Sam Frost on the final of the television show and the day after it aired, announced the engagement was off.  

The revelation of Garvey and Pillige's relationship backs up rumours that a different bachelorette had stolen the hunk's heart.   

New Idea are reporting an anonymous bachelorette revealed to them that the producers were "pushing him to pick Sam".   

The three final bachelorettes, including Frost, all told him they loved him.  

Rumours are still swirling that Ms Frost could be asked by Channel 10 to be the bride-to-be if it creates The Bachelorette Australia for 2015.
