Lauren and Cameron are still in love and going strong.
“Love Is Blind” stars Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton met on season one of the reality TV experiment which challenges participants to date and get engaged before ever seeing one another.
They got married on day 40 of the experiment. It was also Lauren’s birthday — November 16, 2018. They’re still married today.
In April 2021, Lauren told Us Weekly that she and Cameron felt a lot of pressure from the public for their relationship to succeed. “You know, we’re not love robots,” she said. “I definitely think that we went through a period where it was kind of difficult, but it didn’t take me long to snap out of it.”
On August 23, Lauren shared a post on Instagram marking the approach of their four-year wedding anniversary. “Can we finally plan our reception now lol?” she asked her husband in the caption. In the post, she also called Cameron her “light in darkness.”
Amber and Matt are still married and wanted no drama following the series.
“Love Is Blind” fans watched Amber Pike and Matt Barnett’s love story unfold on season one of the show, and they got married in November 2018. They’re still married today, and Amber told Insider in July 2021 that they wanted no drama while filming their “After the Altar” episodes.
“We made it really clear that we wanted nothing to do with the drama. That’s not our life,” Amber said. So, they avoided interaction with castmate Jessica, who had previously tried to break them up.
On August 21, Amber posted a couple photo on Instagram with a simple message of appreciation for her husband. “You’re my best view,” she told Matt in the caption.
Giannina and Damian tried to make it work after the altar but ultimately split up.
Giannina Gibelli and Damian Powers made it to the altar on “Love Is Blind” season one but didn’t get married because Damian said no even though Giannina said yes. On the reunion show and season one’s “After the Altar,” they revealed that they were giving their relationship another chance, but they split again in 2021, per Us Weekly.
Per Damian’s Instagram, he appears to be single. Giannina is currently dating fellow reality star Blake Horstmann, who appeared on Becca Kufrin’s season of “The Bachelorette,” which aired in 2018. Giannina and Blake met on the Paramount+ series “All Star Shore,” which filmed in late 2021 and aired in June 2022.
In a June Instagram post, Giannina gushed that Blake is the reason why she’s been “so happy this year,” after keeping their relationship secret until the show premiered.
Jessica and Mark’s love story ended on their wedding day in the season one finale.
Mark Cuevas said he knew Jessica Batten was the woman for him as soon as he heard her voice during the first season of “Love Is Blind.” He said “I do” on their wedding day, but Jessica couldn’t say the same and left him at the altar.
That’s where their story ended, especially since Mark didn’t appear in season one’s “After the Altar” special. To add more complexity to their relationship, rumors swirled that Mark had been cheating on Jessica, and she said during “After the Altar” that she felt like “an idiot” for being engaged to him.
Jessica got engaged to her partner Benjamin McGrath, a foot and ankle surgeon from California, in September 2021. “I don’t think it has quite sunk in, but I’m definitely floating somewhere on cloud nine,” she told People at the time.
Mark married his girlfriend Aubrey Rainey in September 2022, two years after getting engaged. They have two sons together, Ace and Axton.
Carlton and Diamond had a tumultuous breakup midway through season one.
Carlton Morton and Diamond Jack broke up at the getaways stage of the experiment because Carlton didn’t tell Diamond he was bisexual until after they got engaged. She threw her engagement ring into the pool and he called her “ignorant.”
Diamond currently appears to be single on Instagram, but her relationship status is unknown. Carlton’s status is also unknown, although he, too, currently appears to be single, per social media.
Deepti dumped Shake at the altar at the end of season two.
Deepti Vempati and Abhishek “Shake” Chatterjee got engaged in season two, but Shake was hyper-focused on physical appearance during the experiment, as fans saw from the questions he asked women in the pod-dating stage. Deepti was unconvinced that Shake would change and questioned whether he actually wanted a marriage, so she dumped him at the altar.
Shake has been publicly dating his girlfriend Emily since March 2022, according to Us Weekly. They were in a long-distance relationship at the time and appear to still be together, based on Shake’s Instagram account. In August 2022, he posted a picture kissing her with the caption “love is blurry,” the catchphrase he introduced in the reunion episode.
Kyle and Shaina never made it to their wedding day.
Though they got engaged in the pods, Shaina Hurley ended her relationship with Kyle Abrams before they made it to their wedding day, but after he had met her family. Shaina’s mind remained on another castmate, Shayne Jansen, who she’d also formed a connection with, through much of the season.
Shaina revealed she was in a relationship on the “Love Is Blind” reunion special, and she appeared with her boyfriend Christos Lardakis in the “After the Altar” episodes. While much of Shaina’s “After the Altar” storyline focused on her friendship with Shayne and continued friction with Shayne’s ex Natalie Lee, she also announced that she and Christos were engaged on the show.
The two married in July 2022, People reported.
Shayne and Natalie broke up multiple times, during and after filming.
Shayne Jansen and Natalie Lee’s relationship after they got engaged during the pods stage of the experiment appeared to go smoothly, at first. But after a few tiffs throughout the season, on the night before their wedding day, they got into a major fight and Natalie said “no” at the altar after Shayne said “yes.”
The couple tried dating again after filming ended but broke up before the season two reunion special, which showed that tensions were still high between the two of them. The reunion was presumably filmed around February 2022.
The formerly engaged couple didn’t interact at all during the season’s “After the Altar” special, though they did speak about one another and their failed relationship to fellow castmates. Natalie revealed in those episodes that she had found what she considered to be inappropriate messages between Shayne and Shaina, sent while Shaina was dating her now-husband. Shayne and Shaina both denied that the messages were anything other than platonic, but according to Natalie, it was enough for her to cut him off forever.
Shayne and Natalie didn’t mention dating anyone else during “After the Altar” and each appear to be currently single, according to their respective Instagram accounts.
Iyanna and Jarrette’s love didn’t last, and the two announced their divorce in August 2022.
Jarrette Jones and Iyanna McNeely had one of the (relatively) smoothest roads to the altar on “Love Is Blind” season two after the pods, though they did occasionally clash over their differing lifestyles. Jarrette initially had an interest in castmate Mallory Zapata, but remained committed to Iyanna after he proposed.
The couple announced their separation in a joint statement on Instagram on August 17, about a year after their marriage. “We don’t regret a thing!” the former pair said in their statement.
The season’s “After the Altar” special, which was filmed before the two split, did show fractures in their marriage, including the fact that Iyanna had moved out of the home they shared because of Jarrette’s frequent partying.
Mallory and Sal split at the altar when Sal said no.
Mallory had an interest in Jarrette in the pods but got engaged to Salvador “Sal” Perez and made it to the altar, where he told her he couldn’t marry her in a moment that surprised most viewers.
Mallory currently appears to be single per her Instagram and told Netflix’s publication Tudum in August 2022 that she’s “just kind of focusing on myself” lately.
Sal, meanwhile, told Entertainment Tonight in March that he was “talking to someone in particular.”
“It’s going very well and that’s all I can really say right now. I’m really happy,” he added.
The “After the Altar” episodes revealed that Sal was in a serious relationship with Chicago-based performer Jessica Palkovic, who he brought along to the season two crew’s weekend getaway. The two appear to still be together, based on Sal’s Instagram activity.
When discussing his relationship with Mallory with his siblings, Sal also shed more light on what led him to break up with his former fiancée at the altar. He claimed that he’d seen Mallory in a car with another man while the two were together, which broke his trust in her before their wedding. In a post-credits scene, when asked by producers, Mallory denied that the man Sal saw her with was anything more than a friend, saying that he’d misinterpreted what he saw.
Danielle and Nick’s smooth ride ended recently.
Danielle Ruhl and Nick Thompson only had interest in each other in the pods and made it all the way to the altar where they both said “I do.”
Fans were surprised when People reported in late August that Danielle had filed for divorce from Nick earlier that month. The two haven’t shared a reason for their split, and Danielle recently said on Instagram that she spends most days “crying for eight hours straight” amid the breakup.
The couple still seemed very much in love during their appearance on the “After the Altar” special, which indicates the dissolution of their relationship must have happened after filming concluded. They don’t currently appear to be dating other people.
Deepti and Kyle agreed to give dating a try in the season two “After the Altar” episodes.
During the season two reunion special, which aired in March 2022, Kyle told Deepti, “I should’ve tried hard for you,” which was a surprise to fans who hadn’t seen them have any kind of romantic relationship during the season.
The two subsequently remained coy about the status of their relationship, though they and their castmates shared photos that showed the two spending time together. In June 2022, Deepti told E! News, “I guess you guys will just have to wait and see what happens with our story.”
In the “After the Altar” episodes, Kyle and Deepti’s storyline revolved around their confusing relationship. The two both admitted they had romantic feelings were one another, but were uncertain whether they wanted to jeopardize their close friendship by trying to date. The third and final episode of “After the Altar” ended with Kyle and Deepti deciding to give a romantic relationship a shot.
Zanab spoke her truth to Cole at the altar.
Viewers watched Zanab Jeffrey and Cole Barnett fight over semantics during their Malibu getaway. The couple disagreed on the meaning of “good” and “great” and from then on things really never got better.
Zanab was very critical of Cole at times, but he wasn’t kind to her either. He fat-shamed her multiple times and questioned her mental health.
At the altar, Zanab told Cole she wasn’t the wife he needed. “You have disrespected me, you have insulted me, you have critiqued me, and for what it is worth you have single-handedly shattered my self-confidence.” Cole was shocked by Zanab’s words. Needless to say, they did not get married.
They told reunion audiences that they hadn’t talked to each other since that day. But the two seem to have made some peace with each other.
Their relationship statuses are unclear, but both Zanab and Cole appear to be single, per her Instagram account and his.
Bartise broke Nancy’s heart.
Nancy Rodriguez and Bartise Bowden had a rocky road on their “Love Is Blind” journey, but seemed to be headed in the right direction leading up to their wedding day.
Alas, Bartise said “I do not” at the altar, breaking Nancy’s heart and sending her family into a tizzy.
On the reunion special, Nancy called out Bartise for spending time with an unnamed blonde woman the weekend after their wedding.
Nancy’s current relationship status is unknown, but she appears to be single on Instagram.
Bartise’s current relationship status is also unknown, though he too appears to be single per his Instagram account.
Colleen and Matt are happily married.
Colleen Reed was on the receiving end of Matt Bolton’s firey temper many times on “Love Is Blind” season three. But they got married on their wedding day, were still married at the reunion, and are still married today, based on their Instagram accounts.
“We have gone through many challenges and I’m proud of much we learned from each hurdle that we have come across,” Colleen wrote as a tribute to Matt on Instagram.
On his own Instagram post, Matt wrote to Colleen, “Love is never easy and it takes work, but I wouldn’t want it with anyone else.”
Raven and SK’s love story has an unexpected ending.
SK Alagbada said, “I do not” to Raven Ross on their wedding day, sending her running from the altar in tears.
But on the “Love Is Blind” reunion, they announced they had gotten back together and were in a long-distance relationship. They appear to have stayed together since filming ended.
Raven had a sweet message for SK on his birthday, November 4: “HAPPY BIRTHDAY! To the best man I know. You have taught me more about love, patience and vulnerability than I could ever articulate,” she wrote.
SK is also on Instagram, though he hasn’t posted about their rekindled relationship or dropped hints on his grid.
