Love Is Blind: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1
Love Is Blind

Critics Consensus

Addictive, but problematic, Love Is Blind is undeniably binge-able, but its version of romance often comes off more toxic than aspirational.

Critic Reviews for Love Is Blind Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (11)

For fans of the genre, it's a delicious romp with just enough twists to keep you guessing, just enough familiarity to keep you entertained.

Love Is Blind is an engaging watch, but it's not one to feel good about.

Feb 28, 2020 | Full Review…

The only queer person we see in Love is Blind oscillates between toxic masculinity and emotional instability.

May 30, 2020 | Rating: D | Full Review…

At the end of the day, Love Is Blind is a reality show that thrives on drama. But the way it evolves into an in-depth exploration of cliché tropes makes it one of the most interesting reality shows currently airing.

Reality dating show has unique premise, some sexy stuff.

Feb 27, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Would "Love Is Blind" have been a more interesting experiment if they had cast people who were actually not just thin, able-bodied and cisgender? Hell, yeah.

Feb 27, 2020 | Full Review…

This show sucks. It thinks its premise is strong enough to make you watch it, without ever having to explain it.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

Love Is Blind is amazing. It's awful. It's probably faker and more manufactured than it seems. It is, quite overtly, trash... Love Is Blind is like The Lobster come to life.

Feb 20, 2020 | Full Review…

...in any case, I must admit: The spectacle of it all was more than enough to keep me rapt until the end.

Feb 14, 2020 | Full Review…

Love Is Blind says more about how completely absurd it is to marry someone you barely know than it does about the power of a strictly emotional bond. It certainly does prove that dating through a wall does not a pair of soulmates make.

Feb 14, 2020 | Full Review…

Binging the show over a course of a few days invites low level nausea. I will not reveal who actually makes it to the altar and beyond, but watching the couples that manage to cross the final hurdle is extremely depressing, due, in part to the framing.

Feb 14, 2020 | Full Review…

This makes Love is Blind the zenith of relationship reality television, especially in the way it ends up as cautionary tale about these kinds of shows.

Audience Reviews for Love Is Blind: Season 1

  • Jun 30, 2020
    Back in New Zealand, I avoided "reality TV" like the plague. I couldn't even sit through one full episode of a talent/'my story is sad please vote for me' show. But now I live in London. More importantly, now I live with Hannah: a little English girl whose taste in televisual stimulation I'll politely describe as basic. So when I walked into the lounge this morning and saw her watching some white guy and a hot black chick flirting either side of a dividing wall I thought, ‘Waheyyyy, Hannah and I watch the same sort of stuff.' But as it turned out, Hannah wasn't watching one of those films. No, Hannah was watching Netflix's latest attempt at a dating show – Love Is Blind, hosted by Stevie Wonder. I'm kidding! I'm 99 per cent sure it's hosted by Jessica Simpson's ex. Anyway, the show seemed straight forward enough to me at first: A bunch of loveless strangers move into a house; apparently there to meet their future wife or husband. The boys are in one part of the house, the girls in the other. The twist? They don't get to see each other. Instead, they have to go into private rooms to talk to their prospective lovers through an adjoining wall (think of every gloryhole porno you've watched then take away the hole). Sound stupid? It is. But Hannah was already watching it when I entered the room so I decided to sit through it… for research purposes. The show proceeded like most of these shows do and bits of information about each character were given – so that I could pick favourites. Whilst I was still trying to determine if I hated hearing the pansexual black guy or the 24-year-old white guy talk more, the most unbelievable thing happened. One of the white guys hit it off with a black girl (that's not the unbelievable part – chill out). The unbelievable part was that he proposed – through the wall – and she said yes! I was fuming. ‘This is the sh*t the anti-gay marriage community should be against instead,' I thought. But then I saw it. How happy Love Is Blind, a nonsensical, store-bought romance show, made Hannah. It was like watching a child who still believed in magic see her weird uncle pull a coin from behind her ear for the first time. So I did something for the first time too. I bit my tongue. Who am I to spoil the magic for Hannah? Come to think of it, I hope she doesn't read this.

    There are several common signs of saying "No": 1) Their parents are not attending 2) S/he is crying and.. 3) Jessica has kissed before the pledge.

    Does anyone also dislike Jessica!!! I think she's soooo disingenuous!!!
  • Apr 16, 2020
    I'm not falling for their BS premise that romantic love is blind. The two strongest couples had strong physical attraction as well as emotional connection. Win win. The dating process was very interesting to watch. I love the idea of learning personality first then the physical second. But the majority understandably have physical preferences that can't be overridden so easily. Oh and a two month timetable to the wedding is ridiculously short. You brought them together now why not let it simmer for a year and evolve more naturally.

    To me, it seemed this experiment came off forced in terms of time. I get the premise, but the way this was done just wasn't a viable process to prove their hypothesis if love really is blind. Cramping everything into one month, even if it's unscientific, was good enough for reality TV.
  • Apr 13, 2020
    Starts off strong and catchy, but it seems painfully scripted. While reality TV often is, many better shows do a good job of hiding it. Love Is Blind lacks that polish.
  • Apr 11, 2020
    if they really want to prove love is blind they should've cast ugly mofos like me instead of a bunch attractive tv people
  • Mar 27, 2020
    It had a realistic "tinge" to it until the bisexual black dude (Cameron) did his true confession around the pool and she acted (with lights ablaze) as if she was surprised and shocked. The acting throughout was real high school production quality.
  • Mar 24, 2020
    Its completely the worser show ive ever seen, if i could give 0 stars I would
  • Mar 20, 2020
    For those who don't mind to be always in the line of fake or not or who can appreciate exaggerations and over the top tv. That could be a good one to watch.
