Netflix’s ‘Love is Blind‘ is a dating reality series that follows several men and women who hope to find love. Initially, the participants get to know their prospective partners through speed dates and then can choose to go on longer dates with a person they desire. However, throughout the process, the dates take place in specially built pods that do not allow them to see each other. When a marriage proposal is extended and accepted, the participants get to see their partners and then prepare for their upcoming wedding.
Season 2 of the series was set in Chicago, Illinois, and featured many entertaining cast members. One of the most notable participants was Abhishek ‘Shake’ Chatterjee, whose personality and antics certainly left their mark on the viewers. Surprisingly, fans quickly noticed Shake’s absence in the ‘After the Altar’ episodes of the show’s second installment. Naturally, many of them are curious to know what he is up to these days, and we are here to answer the same!
Abhishek “Shake” Chatterjee’s Love is Blind Journey
Abhishek ‘Shake’ Chatterjee appeared in the second season of ‘Love is Blind,’ aged 33. Hailing from Chicago, Illinois, he introduced himself as a veterinarian and a house DJ. After intense rounds of speed dating and long dates, Shake felt a connection with Deepti Vempati, a 31-year-old Information Data Analyst; to move their relationship along, he asked her to marry him, to which she agreed.
Although, once the two saw each other for the first time and got better acquainted, things worsened. Shake and Deepti are of Indian descent and, before the show, had only dated white people. The former claimed that he was physically not attracted to her, which led to quite an awkwardness between the two. The lack of physical attraction from Shake left Deepti wanting more as the Veterinarian was far from affectionate with her. Unfortunately, this pattern of behavior continued through their journey as an engaged couple.
When the time came for Shake and Deepti to tie the knot in a lavish Indian-style wedding, the latter refused to wed him. While Deepti appreciated the friendship that had blossomed, she stated she could not marry him, as she didn’t wish to be with someone who did not appreciate her for who she was. After this interesting turn of events, let’s find out what exactly Shake has been up to these days.
Where is Abhishek “Shake” Chatterjee Now?
Currently, Abhishek “Shake” Chatterjee is quite happy with his life and has made some drastic changes. Talking about his profession, it seems that Shake is on a hiatus from his job as a veterinarian and is now inclined towards cryptocurrency. “I’m taking a break from being a vet,” he told Us Weekly. “The vet field is amazing in so many ways, but it’s also incredibly draining, both physically and emotionally.”
Furthermore, the reality star has established Your Digital Pet, a company that allows people to convert their beloved pets into NFT. Additionally, Shake is an Advisory Board Member at Engram, a Business Development Advisor at Cryptan Media, a Board Member of Silicon Society, and a Project Advisor at Alien Scum Fleet.
Since Shake appeared in the Netflix show, he has been under fire regarding his comments about Deepti and women. From his castmates to viewers, he was criticized for his alleged degradation of women and his narrow-minded view of them. Shake has since apologized to Deepti through his Instagram for his comments about her and the hurt he caused her. He admitted that he could have worded things better.
Shake’s love life seems to be flourishing, as presently, he is in a happy relationship with Emily Wilson, and the duo hosts the ‘Life Is Blurry Podcast.’ The second season of the said podcast was released in September 2022 and focuses on topics like love, life, and reality TV. Given his work and relationship, Shake often commutes between Chicago and Miami. We wish him the best in life and hope his ventures provide happy results.
