If you’re looking for a new way to meet someone this year, Netflix is here for you.
‘Love is Blind’ is a series where singles “Date” and engage without ever actually seeing each other in person. Once they pop the question, they meet, go on a tropical getaway, move in together and -if everything goes well, get married.
Casting directors are looking for people to audition to be a part of the new season of Netflix’s ‘Love is Blind’. All you’re required to do is fill out a 46-question application, which covers everything including physical appearance, education, religion and sexuality. Ther are several matchmaking questions including, “Are you open to dating someone who is divorced and/or has children,” “What are your deal breakers?” and “Where are you currently meeting potential mates?” Applicants must be 21 and over and are required to upload photos of themselves to be considered.
On February 28, the day after the finale aired, Love Is Blind became Netflix’s number-one trending series coming just days after Netflix launched its new trending top ten lists on their application on February 24.
Tricia Crimmins of Mashable reviewed the first five episodes of Love Is Blind following their original release on February 13. Comparing it to The Bachelor, Crimmins called the series “the bizarre reality TV experiment you’ve been craving”. She says that you never know what the couples will do next, even down to the altar at the wedding, making the series “harmless, entertaining, and satisfying.”
Lucy Mangan of The Guardian gave Love Is Blind a rating of 2 out of 5 stars, calling it toxic, revolting, but extremely addictive. She says that Love Is Blind is the final nail in the coffin of humanity; however, in terms of reality television, she declares that it is good because it “exploits emotional frailties, profaning the sacred, making the private and precious public and worthless and turning it into voyeuristic ratings-bait.” Notwithstanding all of this, she recommends the show as a unexpected reality television binge, similar to The Bachelor.
On March 24, 2020, Love Is Blind was renewed for a second and third season.
Filming took place in Atlanta, Georgia, from October 9, 2018, and remained 38 days up until the weddings. The couples met face-to-face on October 19. The ten days in the pods were shot at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayetteville. Then, after the newly engaged couples left the pods, filming took place at the Grand Velas Riviera Maya in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, when all the couples went on a retreat. The relationships that made it through the retreat in Mexico move in together in an apartment complex. After the retreat, the couples headed back to Atlanta to the Spectrum on Spring apartment building, where they spent the rest of the time filming up until the weddings. The weddings took place at two event spaces called Flourish Atlanta and The Estate on November 15.
