There's no arguing that Love is Blind is one of the best, if not the best, reality series on Netflix. There have been five seasons so far, with a sixth season currently airing. A Love is Blind season 7 is even in the works. I can definitely see this show going on for more and more seasons, and I'll continue to be a faithful fan and watch every single one.

In this reality series, Nick and Vanessa Lachey host a social experiment where a bunch of single men and women try to find their match and fall in love all before meeting in person. The experiment begins with the singles dating and getting to know each other through soundproof pods, where they talk to each other through a speaker but are unable to see each other. Once a genuine connection is made in the pods, someone in the couple has the opportunity to propose. After the marriage proposal is accepted, that's when a couple is able to see each other face-to-face for the first time.

Then, they spend quality time at a couples retreat before heading back to the real world, where they live together and meet each other's families. After a wedding planning period, the weddings officially happen, and each couple decides if they want to get married.

Over the entire five seasons that have been released so far, there were a couple of couples that I absolutely loved and were happy to see end up together. However, there were also some Love is Blind couples that I didn't care for and weren't surprised to see not make it. Are you curious to know which couples I'm talking about? If so, continue reading because I listed the most disliked Love is Blind couples below and ranked them from least to most disliked.

Love is Blind. (L to R) Paul, Micah in episode 403 of Love is Blind. Cr. Courtesy of Netflix © 2023 /

9. Micah and Paul (season 4)

I remember watching Micah and Paul date in the pods and thinking that Micah would choose someone else over him because they seemed so opposite. I know there's the saying "opposites attract," but Micah just seemed to have a stronger connection with Kwame. So imagine how surprised I was when Micah decided to choose Paul in the end. As the season went on, I began to somewhat like their pairing but was still skeptical about whether they'd go through with marrying each other.

They couldn't agree when it came to their long-term goals, and that didn't help their relationship one bit. Micah was living between Seattle and Arizona at the time and didn't want to compromise. Paul was fine living in Seattle and didn't like the idea of Micah traveling back and forth. Then, on their wedding day, Paul said no to Micah at the altar and they didn't go through with the wedding. But it was Paul's insensitive comment about not being able to "envision Micah as a mother" that had upset me and many other fans.

Although all was forgiven after the reunion special, Micah and Paul still weren't able to make a relationship work between them. They had tried to give it another go after the show ended, but they weren't able to do long-distance.

8. Shaina and Kyle (season 2)

I'm going to keep it short and sweet when explaining why I didn't like the Shaina and Kyle pairing, and it's all because of Shaina. Shaina never wanted Kyle but accepted his proposal because she wanted to stay on the show. She really wanted to be with Shayne, which she confessed at the couple's resort, but Shayne chose Natalie over her.

Ultimately, she gives Kyle his engagement ring back, and they call off the engagement. But what made me dislike Shaina even more is that she lied to Kyle and tried to make it seem like the reason why they wouldn't work was because of their different religious views when really it was because she was never attracted to him and wanted somebody else. I'm glad Kyle realized this in the end.

Love Is Blind. (L to R) Cole Barnett, Zanab Jaffrey in episode 306 of Love Is Blind. Cr. Courtesy of Netflix © 2022 /

7. Zanab and Cole (season 3)

Although Zanab and Cole bonded while in the pods, things began to get rocky quickly once they returned to the real world. First, Cole's parents didn't want to meet Zanab or attend their wedding. Then, Cole ends up telling Colleen that she's the type of girl he would usually go for. In the end, Zanab and Cole don't go through with getting married with Zanab telling Cole that he "shattered her self-confidence."

While it was obvious that they weren't meant to be together, what threw me for a loop is what Zanab accused Cole of at the season 3 reunion. During the reunion, she accused Cole of body shaming her, and while I was initially on her side, the footage that was shown as evidence to back up her claims made me question her instead. The footage, otherwise known as the "Cuties scene," doesn't show Cole being disrespectful to Zanab in any way. If anything, it's like Zanab was trying to put words in Cole's mouth. I'm not saying Cole didn't play a part in their split, but he's not the only person to blame.

Love Is Blind. (L to R) Raven Ross, SK Alagbada in episode 304 of Love Is Blind. Cr. Courtesy of Netflix © 2022 /

6. Raven and SK (season 3)

Raven and SK were another shocking pairing to me. While SK was more open in the pods, it didn't seem like Raven really liked him on a romantic level. But as they got to know one another more after spending time together outside the pods, Raven began to open up more, and I could see that she actually liked SK. Honestly, they really grew on me. So, why do I consider them one of the most disliked Love is Blind couples, you ask? Well, it's because of all the drama that went on between them after the show wrapped. SK allegedly cheated on Raven, and that's a big no-no for me!

Love Is Blind. (L to R) Nancy Rodriguez, Bartise Bowden in episode 304 of Love Is Blind. Cr. Courtesy of Netflix © 2022 /

5. Nancy and Bartise (season 3)

This is another case of one participant not really being attracted to the other once they get the opportunity to meet in person for the first time. Bartise annoyed me so much because he was so full of it all season. He thought so highly of himself, which isn't necessarily a bad thing if you're a good person. But Bartise was as shallow as they come.

He treated Nancy horribly, and she would just let it happen. Remember the scene where he was gushing over Raven to Nancy? Seriously, who does that? Although I hated to see Nancy be turned down at their wedding, I'm glad at the same time because she definitely dodged a bullet with Bartise. He still has a lot of growing up to do.

4. Diamond and Carlton (season 1)

Many viewers were mad that Carlton kept such a huge secret about himself hidden from Diamond until after she accepted his proposal and they went to the couple's resort. While that was also irritating to me, what annoyed me the most was how he reacted after he finally told her. Diamond never treated Carlton differently after she found out about his sexuality. All she said to him was that she needed some time to process what he had just told her and then they would talk.

The morning after, she explained in her confessional how her feelings for Carlton hadn't changed even after finding out about his sexuality. So, to see Carlton be so defensive and combative towards Diamond was just wrong. All Diamond wanted was some understanding of why he waited so late to confess. Carlton even disrespected Diamond by swearing at her. Thankfully, their engagement ended after this altercation because I can only imagine how a marriage between them would've gone.

Love Is Blind. (L to R) Abhishek Chatterjee, Deepti Vempati in season 2 of Love Is Blind. Cr. Netflix © 2022 /

3. Deepti and Shake (season 2)

When I think of some of the worst Love is Blind male cast members, Shake is definitely one of them. Like Bartise, all Shake showed us in his season was how shallow he was. Starting from the pods, he was saying insensitive things to the women. Then, there's this scene where he's talking to Jarrette and says how physically unattracted he is to Deepti, even comparing being with her to being with his aunt.

But what was baffling to me was how concerned he was about looks even though he was literally on a show called Love is Blind. I just couldn't wrap my head around that. It's normal to meet someone and not be physically attracted to them, but it was how often Shake mentioned he was unattracted to Deepti that bothered me. I was so happy to watch Deepti stick up for herself and choose not to get married to Shake in the season 2 finale. She deserves someone who loves every part of her, and Shake wasn't that person.

Love is Blind. (L to R) Zach, Irina in episode 405 of Love is Blind. Cr. Courtesy of Netflix © 2023 /

2. Irina and Zack (season 4)

Irina definitely joined Love is Blind in an attempt to attain fame, and I couldn't stand watching any of the scenes she was in. I found it ironic that she came on the show talking about how insecure she was in the past because of her acne scars but then turned around and talked badly about others and laughed at the other women in the cast.

She treated Zack horribly and led him on, knowing that she wasn't attracted to him or wanted to be with him. She constantly insulted his looks, saying things like "it's going to take time to get used to" and that he gave her "the ick." She even said something mean like she thought he'd be a "little more normal." I thought Shake was bad... Irina was on a whole other level. She gave mean girl energy throughout the entire season, and I'm so glad that Zack eventually realized that they're not compatible and broke things off before they made it to the altar.

Love is Blind. (L to R) Jackie, Marshall in episode 405 of Love is Blind. Cr. Courtesy of Netflix © 2023 /

1. Jackie and Marshall (season 4)

Jackie and Marshall were actually one of the main couples I was rooting for in season 4 until Jackie started revealing her toxic ways. Marshall pretty much worshipped the ground Jackie walked on, and Jackie couldn't see that. In my opinion, it seemed like Jackie used her family trauma as an excuse for pushing Marshall away when the real reason was that she didn't find him manly enough.

Honestly, I'm not sure she was even really attracted to him. She knew he was a good man, but he wasn't the guy she would usually go for. So, to me, it looked like she was intentionally starting arguments and creating drama so they had a reason to split up.

Don't get me wrong, Marshall was definitely in the wrong for calling her "a project," but I don't completely fault him because he was fed up with constantly feeling like he wasn't getting anything in the relationship. He even took accountability and immediately apologized to her for saying something so hurtful.

The truth is that Jackie was physically attracted to Josh and wanted him, and that's why things between her and Marshall didn't work out. It was sad to see Marshall get his heart broken, but I'm glad to know that he has found real love with a woman named Chay Barnes.
