Love is Blind season 3 tests what it means to fall in love. Do looks, money, and other things matter when it comes to matters of the heart? Or can you fall in love with someone sight unseen? Again, we are watching a bunch of hopefuls navigate these questions in season 3 of the series. And since we can’t control selves, here is our breakdown of the first 4 episodes!
1. How does this season compare to the last 2 seasons?
Lizzie: Less drama right now for sure, but I have a feeling that’ll be coming. For now, I’m pretty happy with the season, they set up things in a way that gives me something to root for other than total chaos. And I like having people to root for! And okay, I also wouldn’t mind a bit of chaos, but the first part is also important.
Lyra: Can I be honest? I found myself a little bored these first 4 episodes. Like I know the drama is coming. That’s for sure. But I only liked one couple: Alexa and Brennon. Everyone was so bland in comparison or I just wanted off my screen immediately. Or they had no real connection aka Colleen and Matt or Raven and SK. And with more seasons that pass, I come to realize that only season 1 really blew me away.
2. Who is your favorite couple and why?
Lizzie: This isn’t even a real question, because there is only one couple that matters and that is Alexa and Brennon. I will say I judged Brennon right away — the cowboy hat threw we off, and I was worried also about his reaction when he finally saw Alexa. But he was so genuine, and excited, and she was so excited and I truly hope they become the Lauren and Cameron of this season, because they deserve it, we deserve it.
There’s just something about both of them that feels honest. Their hesitation, the spark, the way they are with each other. I believe they want to make this work not just for the camera’s sake, and I hope they do.
Lyra: I’m with Lizzie on this one. It’s Alexa and Brennon for me. All the way. They just seem so genuine with each other. And every moment they spent together felt like watching two best friends fall in love. My only complaint is that they didn’t give us enough Alexa and Brennon. I understand that they are probably less dramatic than the others, but you need balance sometimes. And sometimes you just want to watch two people being cutesy with each other. It happens!
3. Which person do you roll your eyes at when they appear on screen?
Lizzie: RAVEN. Every second of her has been torture so far. When she started doing jumping jacks as Bartise was telling her about one of his most traumatic experiences? No, girl. No. I just don’t feel like we know her, everything we’ve seen of her is kinda fake. I don’t want to judge her, but she isn’t giving me real person vibes, just manufactured stuff and not even the good kind.
Lyra: Lizzie is wrong. I mean, she is right that Raven is not giving off “real person vibes.” That girl is trying to do something weird to try and be remembered while “the love of her life” and her future fiancee is pouring out their heart to her. Unfortunately for Raven, there’s someone worse than her.
Andrew. I loathe him. So much. And the reasons are blatantly obvious as to why he’s a terrible person. One, is the fake crying. Ohhhhh that producer saw a golden opportunity to out him as the worst and I’m glad they took it. But it wasn’t just that. It was him flaunting his money, his trips, how he can romanticize the smell of decaying flesh, and how he’s basically Christian Grey.
Hard pass. Boy, bye.
4. Who is your least favorite couple and why?
Lizzie: I hate Cole and Zanab together. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t believe Raven and SK are gonna work out either, but I hate Cole and Zanab together. It feels like they’re a bad combination, and they’re only telling themselves they love each other because it seemed to work in the pods and they can’t accept it doesn’t — and it won’t because they don’t want to put in the time and effort. Oh, and because Cole is an asshole.
Lyra: Honestly, I was going to say Zanab and Cole. But then Bartise opened his mouth at the end of episode 4. Nancy, I like her. You do you girl and keep eating. You know what, I’ll join you because you’re my type of girl. But back to Bartise. He didn’t have to say that to Nancy. What was the point besides making her feel insecure and putting the fear in her that he WILL leave her for a better woman? Or was he hoping for her to be “grateful” that he chose her? Either way, fuck that noise.
5. Who is the messiest person or couple?
Lizzie: Man, I think Cole is messy, but I have such a bad feeling about Bartise. My run away Nancy alarms are ringing. I can’t even explain it, but I don’t trust him.
Lyra: Bartise. If it wasn’t obvious in my last answer. He’s throwing me off, big time. At first, it was all butterflies and rainbows. He was in a new experience and he was trying to find love. But the moment that his eyes locked on Raven’s physical attributes, it was over. Nancy was forgotten. And that’s not cool for me. Nope.
