People of the internet, rejoice: Love Is Blind is officially getting a season 2 (and 3!!). All of social media erupted when this show first dropped, so it’s pretty phenomenal news that more episodes are coming our way. The thing about Love Is Blind, though, is that it’s even less realistic than most reality TV shows. Sure, it’s fun to watch, but it’s also really hard to watch.
Here are 8 things the show should do with season 2 and 3 to make it a little easier to stomach (and believe). Netflix, if you’re reading this, you're welcome for the free ideas!
A longer timeline
This show definitely asks you to suspend reality, but it would better serve the audience and the contestants if the whole thing didn’t happen in one month. Obviously, watching this craziness go down is half the fun, but if the contestants had more time with each other, maybe more of the relationships would have actually lasted.
People who look more like average, everyday people
It’s just hard to watch a show where the central question is “is love blind?” when all the people are objectively hot. How blind is it really!? This would admittedly be tricky, because you wouldn’t want someone’s appearance to become the butt of the proverbial joke, but it’s hard to believe love is blind when the contestants are all slim, able-bodied, and attractive.
More ex girlfriend/boyfriend drama
A lot of the contestants referenced people they’d dated in the past, but we didn’t actually see anyone’s ex. You're trying to tell me not one person found out their ex was getting married after finding love in a pod and made it a point to try to go stop that person? I don’t buy it! I want more ex drama in season 2 and 3.
Extra family time
Like any good reality show, Love Is Blind should lean into the family dynamics of each contestant. I want more side-eye from grandma, more disapproving looks from people’s siblings. It’s what we deserve!
Contestants who have kids
Some people who are looking for love also happen to be parents, and bringing that into the show would add a whole other level to it.
Separate bachelor/bachelorette parties
By giving all the brides and grooms separate parties with their friends, the drama might be able to come to the surface even more. You’ve gotta believe one girl is going to say to her friend, “You’re not really going through with this, are you?” I’d like to see it.
