His charm and southern drawlHistory:
Born and raised outside of Memphis Tennessee, Blake spent his childhood performing all the farm tasks one would expect from a farm boy. A simple guy, he walked a pretty straight and narrow life. His daily routine was getting up with the sun, working until the sun went down, and getting some sleep until it was time to get up and work again the next day. While other kids were running to the city to go to clubs and later bars, Blake stayed near his farm with those closest to him and hosted bonfires and camping weekends.
A couple years after graduating high school, Blake fell in love. Mary Johnson was the most beautiful girl he had ever met. Having just moved into the small town with her parents, he found her on the side of the road, lost, with no cell phone reception. It was a quick fix, the tire and the directions, but he couldn't help with her reception. They exchanged numbers and met the next week for lunch and from that moment, they had been connected at the hip. After a year of dating, they were going to take a trip to the Bahamas so that Blake could propose to her.
Blake never wanted to go to New York in the first place. The hustle and bustle of the big city was something that never excited him, he was much happier with his quiet, simple life in the country. But if he had to make the long trip to New York to take his love on a week long trip to the Bahamas, he would happily do so. They arrived a day early, to see some sights, and Blake’s idea of the city was confirmed. It was loud, overly busy, dirty and the people were rude. He vowed never to return to New York, except for the return flight. Unfortunately, the plane went down for reasons he never tried to understand and Mary didn't survive. Blake dug Mary’s grave himself, not allowing anyone to help in her final preparation. It was difficult work, because of a lack of tools, but he got it done. For the first few months, outside of adjusting to life on the island, he had to adjust to life without his love. Eventually, he found out that he had a special skill set that was necessary to ensuring not only his survival, but the survival of the others who made it through the wreck.Sexuality:

Blake is a working machine, having worked outside all his life he is no stranger to hard work and approaches work with an open mind. Long days on the farm transferred to long days on the island and if there is a job that needs to be done, Blake will likely sign up for the task.Weaknesses:
Blake doesn’t have any medical training so if anything was to happen to him, he would be out of luck. He is overly trusting, Blake is almost always willing to go out a limb for people whenever they say they need the help regardless of how he is feeling at the moment.Personality:
Overall, Blake is a someone who is always extending a helping hand. Simple and hardworking, Blake wants to establish himself as a strong member of the island community. He believes that God has a reason for everything and the reason no one has found the plane crash over the year is because they are supposed to establish a new community here.PLAYER ONS AND OFFS: A Gentleman's O&O's
