The fundamental subject of whether it’s a good idea to marry someone you hardly know and have never seen receives a resounding “no” in the second season of Love Is Blind.
The second season of Love Is Blind was similar to dating aversion treatment
The level of pessimism in Love Is Blind‘s first and second seasons primarily distinguishes them from one another. And that’s coming from someone who generally views everyone on the countless uncensored reality programmes I like with cynicism. It appeared like the casting team, producers, and editors were making a live-action dating taxonomy of individuals to avoid rather than love pairs to promote.
Contrary to all predictions, Cameron and Lauren were the main focus of the first season of the show. They were an incredibly compatible, uncommonly down-to-earth, and incredibly handsome pair who you couldn’t help but root for. They still work together now. Danielle is a sceptical critic of her fiancé Nick’s use of relationship counselling terminology this season. He believes she is poison and she accuses him of cheating. She claims to enjoy going out, and her closet contains a bag full of costumes that make fun of different meals. He goes in and calls her a horrible, immature person. The major enemy from the first season, Jessica, seems to command more attention this time around. Jessica had strong feelings for Barnett despite not being in love with the man she dated. Jessica was well-known for giving her dog alcohol and having a baby voice. She was dubbed “Messica” by a fellow cast member. In order to give Barnett a “choose me, select me, love me” speech, Jessica appeared to be acting out several show phases with her fiancé, Mark, including living together, preparing for the wedding, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and bachelor and bachelorette parties. Jessica’s speech was delayed, yet she still made a big impact on the programme.
I don’t hold it against the show’s writers or producers that they picked four or five foes given that Messica’s power was successful in grabbing viewers’ attention. After this awful watch, I only wonder if the series still has any promise.
The demise of its own reality programme is another issue that Love Is Blind must address
With only two seasons under its belt, Love Is Blind is already becoming into more of a vehiclefor its performers to become famous than it is for establishing the truth of the show’s name. Previous competitors utilised their appearances to amass substantial Instagram followings, much like The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, which they then used to look for sponsorships.
The Love Is Blind competitors are in an unusual position since they are unable to see their possible love partnerships. Some of the competitors appear to already disagree with the premise of the competition that what’s inside matters: For example, Shake attempts to approach ladies to determine their relative weight, while Shayne asks his discussion partners to give him a detailed description of their body. It must be acknowledged that the show did a fantastic job this season of avoiding selecting Instagram-hungry competitors. The fact that Love Is Oblivious, unlike The Bachelor, presently lacks a larger brand or spinoff series undercuts the notion that contestants are blind to one another’s appearances. Even if the majority of the key cast members now have social media followings in the hundreds of thousands, these elements could help the show remain more real.
It won’t take long for competitors to discover that getting rejected on the programme pays handsomely or that, if the post-show incentives were high enough, a staged showmance marriage may be worthwhile. Season One would seem to be an even bigger outlier given this tendency.
