Reality survival game show Surviving Paradise sent twelve hopefuls off to an island in the sun for what at first seemed like your usual run-of-the-mill reality show. However, the players were thrown a curve ball when half of them were sent out of the luxury villa, forcing them to scrape by in a basic no-frills camp in the wilderness. The game hinges on the chemistry between those involved, and the success of the show, as with all reality-based games, comes down to the people who are chosen to take part. One of those contestants was Aaron Blake.

Aaron seemed to grasp the idea that forming strong relationships within the group was the key to being able to remain in the villa, and therefore eligible to win the final cash prize.

He would make his allegiances with Tabitha and Justin, forming what fans would call TAJ (Tabitha, Aaron, and Justin), and hoping the group dynamic would keep them in the house.

However, the plan had some flaws, and Tabitha would cause conflict, leaving Aaron and Justin vulnerable. Aaron also selflessly offered up his position within the villa, ending up in the outsider’s camp, but earning respect from the others.

When Gabe entered the game, a challenge would pair the two up, and they would be forced to choose a teammate to return to the camp. The challenge did not go well, and Aaron ended up sacrificing his position, going to the camp, and a group vote in the season finale would see him eliminated from the game.

Aaron is a very physical and sport-minded kind of guy, who is also a keen skydiver and has expressed an interest in appearing in other shows including the grueling and challenging reality show Survivor.

How did Aaron make it to Surviving Paradise?

Aaron was a bit of a star on the social media platform TikTok and it’s likely his popular persona on the platform was directly responsible for his stint on Surviving Paradise. His username is @itsaaronblake.

Aaron’s TikToks focus on his everyday life, and in particular, he takes a light-hearted approach to being single.

He has over 150,000 followers on TikTok and was approached by an agent who asked if he would be willing to take part in the show.

Aaron saw the show as an opportunity to build his profile and admits the cash prize and being able to help his family was a motivation that carried him through the process.
