“Do you think that producers are like, ‘Please don’t do this, please don’t do this on the second week?’” Ryan begins on the Wednesday, October 27, episode of the “Here for the Right Reasons” podcast. “I feel like they should have waited to break up until after this because now I’m like, ‘Hey guys, I’m starting to not believe in love. I’m starting to believe that you guys don’t actually know what you’re doing over there.’ … We all want to believe in love, but you guys do not have a good track record.”

Katie, 30, and Blake, 31, who got engaged during the August finale of The Bachelorette, announced their split on Monday, October 25, via a joint statement.

“It is with mutual love and respect that we have decided to go our separate ways,” the duo wrote. “We are so grateful for the moments we shared together and the entire journey that has unfolded this year, but we ultimately have concluded that we are not compatible as life partners, and it is the most caring choice for both of us to move forward independently.”

A source subsequently told Us that the pair “definitely tried” to make their romance work.

“They just couldn’t make the long-distance [relationship] work,” the sider said. “Katie really missed Blake once he left and they would get into little arguments, but at the end of the day, Katie wished he would be with her more.”
