Further damaging his already tarnished reputation, it is revealed that Blake Garvey may have been the owner of a male stripper service as well as a previous stripper himself.

Further damaging his already tarnished reputation, it is revealed that Blake Garvey may have been the owner of a male stripper service as well as a previous stripper himself.

As if his reputation wasn't tarnished enough, it now appears that Australia’s latest Bachelor, Blake Garvey was previously the owner of Alpha Male Entertainment - "Perth's premier male entertainment provider...for everything from hens parties to ladies nights and birthday parties".

Back in July as the show was about to air, it was revealed that Blake came clean about his former life as a stripper and topless waiter, in apparent attempt to come clean about his past so that it wouldn't come back to haunt him.

At the time, Blake, 31, said that he fell into his topless career to help out a friend.

“A high school friend had someone pull out at the last minute for her hens’ night and needed a fill in. She begged me,” he told the Herald Sun. “I gave it a whirl, it was pretty funny. We’ve all had adventurous pasts.”

Now though, Blake, who has already drawn the ire of Australian women everywhere after he chose to end his relationship with Bachelor winner Sam Frost not long after proposing to her on air, has been dealt a further blow to his reputation. It seems he covered up the full extent of his stripper past in order to maintain his wholesome clean-cut on-air image that often saw him dubbed as "boring Blake" by viewers.

The last Bachelor, Tim Robards, was also discovered to have a secret stripper past after the show already went to air.
