The “SNL” recreates Netflix’s very first reality dating show, ‘Love is Blind’. Though there is a twist in this one. The contestants are closed inside pods because of CoronaVirus!
Love is Blind | An Addictive reality dating show
The reality dating show “Love Is Blind”, premiered on Netflix last month. This ten-episode series shows falling in love with somebody, you have never seen. Yes, it is as complicated as it sounds.
Netflix aired Love is Blind’s first episode on 13th Feb 2020. The contestants have to date each other and get engaged to a partner of their choice without knowing what they look like. Only after the engagement can they get to see each other. Few of the contestants were showered with lots of love. While the others with lots of criticism on social media platforms.
Six couples officially got engaged, leaving the rest of the still single contestants on the road. Within four weeks, from tripping through hurdles, battling with distractions and riding on an emotional roller coaster, the show’s most lively contestants finally made their way from pods to the aisle.
By the end of the show, a lot of viewers think this romantic contest focusing on heterosexual couples was totally unfair in many ways.
