Netflix’s ‘Love Is Blind’ is a dating reality show that follows several young men and women as they participate in a social experiment. During their time on the show, the cast members go on a series of dates in specially built pods that allow participants to communicate verbally, but they cannot see their partners. After a marriage proposal is extended and accepted, the engaged couple can finally see each other and prepare for their upcoming wedding.
