Some ‘Love is Blind’ Fans Want Better Hosts
Have you seen Netflix’s new series, Love is Blind? No, seriously. If you haven’t checked out the streaming services’ latest reality show, there is no better time than now. The premise of the show is one simple question: “Can love really be blind?” (and believe us, they ask this question time and time again). To test the theory, couples get to know each other, without ever meeting face to face. When they make a connection, participants have the option to propose, sight unseen and within a few weeks, walk down the aisle.
While some fans think Love is Blind might be better than The Bachelor, for others, there’s something missing. In a recent post, some fans suggested the show might be better with different hosts.
Love is Blind: A new kind of reality show
Is love really blind? That’s what the creators of the new Netflix show wanted to know. Think of the show as a combination of The Bachelor and The Voice. The premise is simple. The series starts with 30 people who are ready to find true love. These individuals have seen enough of the dating world and are ready to settle down.
The individuals get to know each other through a series of blind dates. And by blind, we mean BLIND. Potential mates talk to each other through a thin wall, without the opportunity to be distracted by sight or touch.
The format forces couples to get to know each other deeply and quickly. When someone thinks they have found their match, they can make the choice to get down on one knee and propose (still behind a wall). It is only then that they get to meet face to face and see if love is really blind.
Who are the hosts of Love is Blind?
If you’re a fan of 90s boy bands, you’ll instantly recognize the hosts of the reality show, Nick Lachey, and wife Vanessa Lachey. The couple introduces themselves at the beginning of the show and immediately shares their excitement to watch the couples come together.
But almost immediately, there’s something off about the hosts of Love is Blind. Most notably, they’re almost never there. While the focus of the show is the couples, unlike other reality dating shows, Nick and Vanessa rarely make an appearance. They don’t talk to the “contestants” and don’t really provide any additional insight throughout the show. In fact, there are some episodes where they don’t even appear at all.
Some fans are hoping for different hosts for season 2
Now that it’s official season 2 of Love is Blind is on, some fans are hoping that the show will return with different hosts. In response to a promotion for the show’s reunion installment, many fans took the opportunity to speak their mind.
One fan wrote, “A huge disappointment, I think it would have been better if they had fans host instead of vanessa and nick.” While another agreed, “Nick and Vanessa should’ve asked @Andy for pointers. #LoveIsBlind #loveisblindreunion.” @Andy referring to television host Andy Cohen.
Other fans weren’t as harsh. Speaking of the reunion, one fan wrote, “The hosts are cute and all but the questions were not as dramatic, pressing or as deep as it appeared to be intended. I wish they would’ve stirred the pot some but whatever. This show is insane lol.”
Will Nick and Vanessa return for the coming seasons? Fans are ready for whoever is hosting season 2, they want to see more behind the scenes and more DRAMA.
