Love Is Blind season one spoilers ahead!
As far as I’m concerned, Love Is Blind is the only social experiment that matters right now and it was a total mess. If you haven’t wasted hours of your life on Netflix’s new reality show in which strangers get engaged without ever seeing each other, please stop being so responsible and give in already!
After ten episodes of watching the couples figure out if they made a terrible mistake by going on the show and getting engaged (Spoiler: Most did!), only Cameron and Lauren and Barnett and Amber are still together. That means Jessica and Mark, everyone’s favorite doomed-from-the-start couple, did not say “I do.”
It was pretty clear Jessica wasn’t all-in with Mark the entire time, so the fact that she carried on with him definitely had fans scratching their heads. But in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jessica said she was “forced” to continue the show through the wedding.
After asking a Netflix rep if she can reveal if she tried to leave the show before she got to the altar, she explained, “Yeah, I mean, I had to stay. I definitely had a conversation about leaving and I wasn’t able to do that. My dog got sick too and almost died during the show. I had so much other stuff going on.” Jessica also said she knew she wouldn’t end up with Mark, so staying on the show and planning a wedding felt like “psychological warfare.”
That’s Jessica’s take, but a Love Is Blind producer recalls things very differently. After reading the interview, Chris Coelen denied that the show forced her to stay. He told Metro, “I know she gets a lot of vitriol on social media, but she could’ve walked away. She definitely could have. I feel like she was very confused and very conflicted.”
Chris went on to say, “If they got engaged, they knew there would be a wedding day that was set four weeks from their engagement. If they showed up at the wedding or didn’t show up—all of that was their decision.”
Uh, well, obviously Chris and Jessica don’t agree on this, but at least she didn’t get married, right?
