Milton, a petroleum engineer, and Lydia, a geologist, geeked out over their shared love of metamorphic rocks on one of their first dates in the pods. But an enthusiasm for science wasn’t the only thing they had in common. Despite some concerns about their six-year age gap, they got engaged at the end of episode 4. 

Milton’s Instagram features highlights from his trips to several national parks. Lydia’s Instagram is @lavg and includes highlights from visits to Puerto Rico and Chicago. She also posts on TikTok at @lydiaarleen.

Uche, a lawyer and entrepreneur, intended to propose to Aaliyah, an ICU nurse, at the end of episode 4. But after she learned that he’d dated Lydia before the show, she got cold feet and backed out of the experiment, leaving a dumbfounded Uche wondering how to move forward. We’ll have to keep watching to find out if Uche can repair things with Aaliyah.

Johnie, a lawyer, thought she’d found something special with Izzy. But then came some intense revelations about her romantic past, including that she’d been divorced and had an ex that had died of a drug overdose. Izzy began to have second thoughts and ultimately decided to break things off. Meanwhile, Chris, a project manager, had fallen hard for Johnie, but she worried he was the safe choice and rejected him. After her romance with Izzy stalled, Johnie tried to rekindle things with Chris, to no avail. He decided to be “selfish” and not put himself in a position where he was someone’s second choice. 

By the end of episode 4, both Johnie and Chris were still single. But a teaser for the upcoming episodes of Love Is Blind indicates that both will be back and that their return stirs up some drama with the rest of the cast.
