Overrated Netflix shows: Love Is Blind

Seasons: 1

Starring: Nick Lachey and Vanessa Lachey

Why It’s Overrated: Could there every be too many dating reality competition series? Possibly, yes. Between The Bachelor(ette) and Married at First Sight, there’s no shortage in watercooler-worthy reality shows about strangers meeting and competing for love. This year, Netflix snagged its own hit with Love Is Blind, a pre-quarantine treat that captivated the masses with its intriguing mixture of romantic drama and mystery.

Hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, Love Is Blind centers on the concept of strangers hoping to fall in love without actually seeing the prospective partner they’re speaking to. The contestants are placed into isolated pods, where they speed date without laying an eye on their date. When they have reached a decision, the contestants propose to the date they want to marry, which then leads to a couples retreat and subsequent cohabitation.

In the end, Love Is Blind comes to the interesting revelation of whether love is truly blind. It’s a fascinating concept, and it’s clear to see why viewers were hooked. The dating reality series was one of the most popular Netflix shows of the year and landed a two-season renewal. Still, just because a lot of people watch a certain show and spend a lot of time talking about it doesn’t necessarily make it a must-watch. But that also doesn’t mean you shouldn’t watch it anyway.
