Rumors And Spoilers About Love Is Blind Season 4

If you're into reality dating shows, you've undoubtedly watched at least one episode of "Love Is Blind" by now. The Netflix reality show first hit the streaming service in February 2020, and we've been hooked ever since. We've had three seasons of pod dating, speedy proposals, and lots of juicy drama.

For those who might be unfamiliar with the show, we'll get you up to speed. "Love Is Blind" is a reality dating show where people date each other and get engaged without ever seeing one another. The entire point of the show is to build a deeper connection with someone that sits on the other side of a wall without ever seeing them, hence the show's name. Once each couple is engaged, they meet face to face and see if they can make it in the real world, with only about a month to plan a wedding and prepare to say "I do."

Believe it or not, Season 4 of the Netflix reality show is already around the corner. We don't know about you, but we're still reeling from the drama from Season 3 *cough* Zanab Jaffrey and Cole Barnett. Don't even get us started on Bartise Bowden! We can't wait to see who this season's villains will be. So, get ready, and let's dive into what we know about "Love Is Blind" Season 4. From what we can tell, it's going to be a good one.

When does the new season air?

Before we get into some of the dirty deets about Season 4, let's cover the basic information we know. The new season is set to premiere on Friday, March 24, 2023. But, as much as we love to binge an entire season in one sitting, we won't have that luxury with this season. Netflix continues to follow the same format with episode releases as they have in previous seasons. The first five episodes air on March 24, but after that, three new episodes come out each Friday until the couples reach the altar. Here's the release schedule according to Netflix:

  • March 24: Episodes 1-5

  • March 31: Episodes 6-8

  • April 7: Episodes 9-11

  • April 14: Episode 12

While we wish we could soak in every bit of drama ASAP, this schedule does keep us on our toes and drags out the anticipation. Either way, we're here for it.

Who is hosting Season 4 of Love Is Blind?

From the start, Nick and Vanessa Lachey have been the hosts of this Netflix reality show, and they're not stopping now. For Season 4, we'll see the lovely couple come together to host the show again. We have to say, it's been a lot of fun watching the married couple host the previous seasons, particularly when it comes to the reunions at the end of each season.

Nick and Vanessa have never been shy about expressing their thoughts and feelings during the reunions, particularly toward those contestants who were anything less than nice during the show. Take Season 2 contestant, Abhishek "Shake" Chatterjee, for an unfortunate but perfect example. Both Vanessa and Nick, as well as the other contestants, grilled him for his shallow behavior and commentary during both the season and the reunion. We love to see them standing up against all of the jerks each season.

Nick and Vanessa are also great hosts for the show because of the nature of their relationship in the early days. According to Today, when they started dating in 2006, the couple spent a great deal of time apart and had to get to know each other over the phone, which they believe is similar to dating in the pods.

Where are the singles located?

Each of the previous seasons of "Love Is Blind" has been filmed in different locations, all featuring singles from that particular area. During Season 1, the cast was all based in Atlanta, Georgia, which is where the season was filmed, and the couples honeymooned in Mexico. In Season 2, the couples were based in Chicago and also honeymooned in Mexico. The couples from Season 3 were based in Dallas, but the couples honeymooned in Malibu, California. Switching up locations is a great call by the producers and gives viewers a chance to see contestants from different parts of the country.

Season 4 of "Love Is Blind" is hitting the West Coast — the Pacific North West, specifically — for the first time. According to Life & Style, the new season takes place in Seattle, Washington, and we're excited to see what new drama these West Coast contestants will bring. 

We're dying to know — who are this season's singles?

Now that we've covered some of the less exciting stuff, let's get into who the contestants are of "Love Is Blind" Season 4. This season features 30 singles — 15 women and 15 men.

Emotions will run high this season

As with all the past seasons of "Love Is Blind," emotions will run high in Season 4 based on what we can see in the trailer (via YouTube). Would it be "Love Is Blind" without some tears? From dating in the pods to standing on the altar, the seasons are always filled with lots of emotions from beginning to end. In the Season 4 trailer, we see a lot of the contestants getting real on camera. One of the male contestants opens up and admits, "Not a lot of guys that look like us talk about stuff like this" in an emotional clip. Another contestant in the pods hints at his previous attempts at love saying, "You can picture this great future with somebody, and then this person is gone." It's nice to see the men in this season being vulnerable.

We see lots of emotion from the ladies as well. In the trailer, one contestant admits, "He sees things in me that sometimes I don't see in myself." We also see some anger from some of the women, as one states angrily that she and her fiance don't have any intimate time together. Surely, we'll see lots of tears and heated arguments this season.

Some of the contestants are worried about finding love

We know that many of the contestants on "Love Is Blind" are looking for love in a new way because conventional methods haven't worked well for them in the past. In the Season 4 trailer, one contestant expresses her fears of finding love at her age. "I have doubts about being my age and not finding a person," says Tiffany, 37. However, she's not the oldest contestant to be on the show. Her fellow Season 4 contestant, Brandie, stands the oldest at 39.

In previous seasons, there has been a good mix of contestants in their 20s and 30s, but it appears that a majority of the contestants in Season 4 are in their 30s. In previous seasons, we've seen many of the contestants in their 30s reach the engagement stage in the show ... but will it be the same this season?

There's definitely going to be some drama

If we know one thing, "Love Is Blind" is always packed with drama. The Season 4 trailer doesn't let us down in that regard — clearly, this season will be juicy and drama packed. The opening line of the trailer comes in with a bang, as one contestant says, "I made the wrong choice, and now I'm gonna propose to another woman." Sheesh! If we know one thing from past seasons, having second guesses about proposing or a contestant choosing their second choice, is a guaranteed disaster. Take Bartise Bowden from Season 3, for instance. He picked Nancy Rodriguez over Raven Ross, but once he saw Raven ... well, if you know, you know.

Of course, it wouldn't be a complete season without a pool party, and this pool party looks far from boring, to say the least. We know that each season, the cast has a get-together where they all meet as engaged couples. This is the contestants' first chance to see the other contestants they dated in the pods. In the trailer, we see one of the women confessing, "Wait a minute, he's kind of fine," while raising her sunglasses." Next, another woman says, "Are you trying to sabotage my relationship?" Where this happens, we're not exactly sure, but we can't wait to find out!

Meeting the parents will cause even more drama

Even under normal dating circumstances, meeting your partner's parents for the first time can be nerve-racking, to say the least. Now, add in the fact that you are engaged to someone you met weeks ago on a reality show and you're set to get married in a month. Yeah, some parents aren't going to like that.

In the Netflix trailer, contestant Zack says, "I don't want to be in a marriage where your parents hate me." Well, we don't blame you, Zack. In previous seasons, meeting the parents has been a pain point for many of the contestants. We've seen it all — some parents come around right away, some need a little warming up, while some don't even show up to their child's wedding day. In Season 3, Cole Barnett's parents refused to meet Zanab Jaffrey or attend their wedding. We get it, parents should be concerned, but it's still a tough situation for the contestants to navigate.

We're going to see some tension at the altar

Of course, the most emotional moments of each season come down to the wedding days, when the couples meet at the altar and make the decision to say "I do," or part ways. Everything that happens throughout the season is in anticipation of this final moment. Throughout the Season 4 Netflix trailer, it's clear that the final episodes are going to be intense.

Many of the contestants seem to have concerns about walking down the aisle. One contestant asks her fiance, "Do you feel like you're questioning?" while another contestant doesn't show up for her wedding dress fitting — yikes! The trailer ends with a couple at the altar, with one saying "In this moment, the best thing I can do for us is give you the opportunity to answer first." It's always a guessing game when figuring out who will say "I do," and who will talk. We can't wait to see who makes it this season.

Is love blind? For these couples, it is.

While the majority of couples on "Love Is Blind" don't last, there are a handful of successful couples that are married to this day. From Season 1, the two couples that said yes at the altar are still married. Lauren and Cameron Hamilton look like they're going strong and are cute as ever. Amber and Matt Barnett are also still together and seem to be doing great.

Sadly, none of the couples that married in Season 2 are still together. The couples that said "I do," at the altar were Danielle Ruhl and Nick Thompson, and Iyanna McNeely and Jarrette Jones. But both couples lasted about a year before parting ways.

From Season 3, two couples got married and are still together. Alexa and Brennon Lemieux look adorable and happy as ever. Colleen and Matt Bolton are also still together, although, during the "After the Altar" episodes from Season 3, it seems like things might be rocky between the two.

There have been some memorable trainwrecks from the previous seasons

While the show proves that love is blind for some people, for others, it's clearly not. We think it's safe to say that some of the relationships from previous seasons have been absolute trainwrecks. In Season 3, we saw two relationship disasters — Cole Barnett and Zanab Jaffrey, and Bartise Bowden and Nancy Rodriguez. It seemed clear right away that these two couples weren't going to last, especially considering both Cole and Bartise's flirtatious behavior with other women during the pool party.

Season 2 brought us drama with Abhishek "Shake" Chatterjee. Shake was certainly the villain of that season — he proved to be nothing but shallow and deserved to be dumped by Deepti Vempati at the altar.

However, the standout trainwreck has to be Jessica Batten and Mark Cuevas from Season 1. For those who don't remember, Jessica just couldn't get over Matt Barnett — who chose Amber Pike — and caused a bunch of drama. Even still, she made it all the way to the altar, where she dumped Mark. We gotta say, she was not our favorite, but she isn't the worst person we've seen on the show either.
