Netflix’s ‘Love is Blind‘ is a reality dating show with a unique premise. It welcomes several young men and women so that they may get to know their prospective partners and hopefully find love. Initially, the participants go on speed-dating rounds with their potential matches, followed by longer dates with people they feel most connected with. The dates take place in specially built pods that do not allow contestants to see the person they are talking with.
Only after a marriage proposal is extended and accepted by a pair are they allowed to see each other and start preparing for their upcoming nuptials. However, not all engaged couples get married, and not all married couples stay that way for long. The show’s second season premiered in early 2022, and fans are curious to know what the unique cast members are up to. Let’s catch up with them, shall we?
