Netflix has finally unveiled the cast for the second season of the hit reality series “Love Is Blind.”
Season one of the dating show introduced viewers to fan-favorites, like Cameron Hamilton and Lauren Speed-Hamilton, and other contestants who delivered dramatic moments every episode, like Jessica Batten and Giannina Milady Gibelli.
Based on the one-minute clip the streaming site posted on its social media platforms, the cast of the sophomore season will be just as entertaining and emotional. The famous pods from season one are back and helping these contestants fall in love without seeing each other first.
For season two, Netflix has once again brought together a group of singles, 15 men and 15 women, who are ready to get married. This time, the season will feature cast members from Chicago instead of Atlanta.
So, who was brave enough to sign up for a show where contestants get engaged, move in together and get married in a few weeks? Check out the cast of “Love Is Blind” season two, which will wrap in a finale episode on Feb. 25. Plus, find out what they said in their introduction video before the experience began.
