Double Shot At Love

Love Is Blind


Ever wondered what you really fall in love with, looks or personality? Look no further as Netflix's Love is Blind answers all these questions and more. It's fascinating to watch these singletons go on dates in 'pods' where they talk and get to know each other, without an inkling of what the other person looks like. The season takes a dramatic turn when several of these couples get engaged, only to finally see their counterparts in real life. The season is shocking, heartwarming, embarrassing and definitely leaves you wondering… is love truly blind?

The hit franchise has everything you're looking for – the exotic locations, the hilarious banter between islanders and plenty of drama.
