As per his accounts, he stayed at home, spending more time with his family - his spouse and their two daughters. He did a lot of grilling and cooking for them.
Blais also admittedly realized that his wife was a better cook than him during the hiatus.
"Really, I will say, it hits my ego every once in a while. She makes the most delicious food," Blais said during an interview on the Scene in San Diego podcast in January 2021.
He added she followed recipes and made things healthier; hence, earning the title of a talented chef.
While Blais's partner is not a professional chef, she is a yoga instructor. In addition, she is an associate in his creative culinary company, Trail Blais, and podcast, Starving For Attention.
Richard Blais on Why He Could Get a Divorce
Blais's relationship with his spouse is sailing smoothly, but he knows what could be the reason if they ever divorced.
In an interview with Bravo TV, the television personality opened up about his most embarrassing food habits. In his own words, he would order a lot of food on room service when traveling.
So much so, he would lie the food would be for two people even though he would eat 95 percent of it by himself. "So they bring up two sets of silverware," Blais recounted, remarking he would be embarrassed.
Then, he joked his room service habit could cost him his marriage. He explained if his wife ever checked the receipts, she would wonder, "Who are all these people you're having room service with?"
He implied she would not believe he ate the food alone and think he was with someone else.

Although Blais joked about the divorce, his food habits have brought challenges in his weight loss and gain for real.
Around 2019, he was reportedly 230 pounds. After realizing he had packed some unnecessary pounds, Blais kickstarted his weight loss journey to balance his height with weight.
He cut off sugars, excessive meat, junk foods and opted for dried fruits, a plant-based diet, and grilled vegetables.
As a result, he dropped 60 whopping pounds and was 170 pounds in September 2019.
