A proposal, dogs and calling divorce lawyers: Where the Love Is Blind cast is now
Oh they’ve been busy alright
The past month has been a complete whirlwind of emotions. From the first “I love you” in episode one, to the “I don’ts” at the weddings – Love Is Blind has been a rollercoaster for all involved. But all of that was filmed over a year ago, so where the hell are all the Love Is Blind cast members now?
Are they still married? Are they having children? Is anyone dating new people? The answer is all that – and even more. The Love Is Blind cast up til now have been keeping themselves very busy. Here’s a rundown of everything they’ve been up to.
*This article contains spoilers for the Love Is Blind renuion*
Here’s what all of the Love Is Blind cast are up to now:
Amber and Barnett
Since the show, Amber and Barnett have remained married. They have moved closer to the city together and say they are “doing great”. They moved after Amber said the house they were living in previously together was haunted.
In the reunion show, Amber admitted she had spent some time being financially dependent on Barnett after the show and was working as a cocktail waitress. It definitely hasn’t been all plain sailing for them though, the couple said they had felt the strain of their own expecatations after the wedding and Amber said at one point she had phoned a divorce lawyer and considered calling the entire thing off.
Amber has dyed her hair blonde and Barnett seems to have developed an interesting taste in blazers. Now the show is over they have been able to share some loved up pictures on their social media accounts.
Lauren and Cameron
Everyone’s favourites, Lauren and Cameron, are obviously still together. They described themselves as having “never been as happy” which is enough to melt anyone’s heart.
If that doesn’t melt you heart then try this, they’ve also got a puppy together and Cameron said they will have children “hopefully soon”. Their puppy is called Sparks, because of the sparks they felt in the pods.
They’re doing photoshoots together and planning on setting up a YouTube channel. This is real love right here.
Gigi and Damian
After the most dramatic wedding of the series, where Damian said “I can’t”, Gigi ran out the church, fell down a hill, came back, ripped her dress and they both cried for a bit – Gigi and Damian got back together. They are now dating each other which they say has worked much better for them.
Gigi described them as “so together” and said her friends and family love Damian. Damian has apologised for how he made her feel at the wedding – in particular that it had to be in front of all of her friends and family. The couple are not currently living together, each staying in their own places.
Gigi’s Instagram is a massive vibe and she is clearly living her best life. She’s currently doing a Love Is Blind press tour all down the west coast of the US.
It looks as though Damian is with her and is just out here having a good time. Their Instagram takeover of cute pictures together is still pending, though.
Kelly said “I don’t” at the altar in one of the biggest shocks from the weddings episode. Her and Kenny didn’t rekindle their relationship and instead – she started dating a friend who was at the wedding!!
She also said she has spent the past year or so going through some career transitions. She is working as a health and relationships coach. Even though she didn’t find love on the show, it looks as though her and Gigi have got a solid girl friendship going on – Kelly has shared pictures of them hanging out together.
Despite not leaving the show with a wife, Kenny won everyone else’s hearts. So we can all let out a sigh of relief because he has said he “doesn’t want to sugar coat it but I couldn’t be doing better”. Yep, Kenny is having a great time.
He has a new, official girlfriend and has been travelling a lot and starting new ventures. Happy fresh starts to the King!!!
Jessica had a rollercoaster ride on the show. After filming she took some time for herself and went home to Chicago for six months. She moved across the country with her dog and had therapy after she rejected Mark at the altar.
She’s now living in California and posts non-stop Instagram stories of her and her dog around the pool. She said on the reunion show she had a lot of “cringe moments” to look back on, hated that she was “drinking too much” and added that she’s now dating again!!
Mark was left at the altar by Jessica. And since then, he seems to be doing just fine. He has his own fancy website, which doesn’t seem to contain much other than the Love Is Blind trailer, but it’s swanky AF. He is single now and said on the reunion show that “life is good”.
There’s a picture of him circulating which appears to show him on the dating app Hinge – but it hasn’t been confirmed by him. It could be a fake account but if not, good for him.
There are A LOT of calls for Mark to join The Bachelor. Some comments on his Instagram include: “Please be the next bachelor!!!!!!!!!!! If the producers are smart, they will do it!” And: “Would you ever go on The Bachelor?” Watch this space?
On the reunion show, Carlton was very open about how difficult life has been for him since filming the show. He broke down in tears as he recalled his experience with comments online following his huge argument with Diamond on the couples’ retreat. He also said he has had death threats since the show was aired.
Carlton posted on Instagram saying he is “fighting alone” and it “hurts”. It looks as though he has separated from his management company and is no longer doing any press appearances.
Carlton is single now, and said he has spent the past year or so “working on Carlton”. In one of the most shocking moments of the reunion show, Carlton got down on one knee in front of Diamond (!!!!) and presented her with the ring he threw into the pool in Mexico. He said after the row he went into the pool and got the ring back. They said there is no chance of them getting back together, but he presented her the ring as a final apology and a symbol of them moving forward in their friendship.
Diamond didn’t have it easy after the show either. She said she also received a number of death threats and nasty comments online. However, she’s pushing forward now and has gone back to school to study for a PhD. She is also working as the current chairperson of the cancer support group, Charge Up. She didn’t comment on the reunion show about her current relationship status.
