"I’m scared about being vulnerable"

Netflix’s hit dating series Love Is Blind is returning to our screens for a second season.

The first season of the show was released in February 2020.

Since then, fans of Love Is Blind have waited in anticipation for a new set of singletons.

The show features a group of 30 singles who sign up to participate in the ‘experiment’.

Over ten days of speed dating, contestants get to know each other by having conversations in pods, separated by a wall.

They take notes and build a connection until they have to decide whether to get engaged without ever seeing their partner, or leave the show alone.

Once the engagements take place, the couples are whisked away to a tropical resort.

There, they work on building a physical connection.

Finally, phase three involves transitioning into the ‘real world’ – living together, meeting each other’s parents, and tying the knot.

The show’s first season brought with it plenty of questions from viewers, from whether the episodes were scripted to who paid for the weddings.

The second season of Love Is Blind is expected to be just as wild.

Netflix recently announced the 30 contestants who will appear on the show, alongside hosts Nick and Vanessa Lachey.

Season one was set in Atlanta, Georgia, but this time the singles hail from Chicago, Illinois.

The second season of Love Is Blind features four South Asian singletons who have joined the ‘experiment’ in a quest for love.

In a recent Instagram post, Abhishek wrote:

“I really hope that the person on the other end is looking for something special and not just looking for a step up in their social media.”

“I think that there is always a plan – just allow yourself to be open to the chance.”
