Love Is Blind season 4 fans can’t believe how much schadenfreude Micah Lussier‘s friends had over Paul Peden saying no to her at the altar. Micah’s supposed best friend Shelby Tschohl and bridesmaid Ruby Mensing apparently couldn’t contain their glee at Micah getting rejected at the altar on her wedding day. Micah’s friend Shelby even expressed her joy and wishes being fulfilled at the news: “I’m relieved, honestly. That’s how I wanted it to go.”
However, fans need to remember Love Is Blind is largely staged and scripted.
Shelby’s been happily married to her husband since 2018, according to her Facebook profile. Shelby’s Instagram is private for obvious reasons, considering all the backlash happening online.
Some fans even think something may be going on between Paul and bridesmaid Ruby with an apparent clandestine tap on a backside and him following her on Instagram.
Love Is Blind Fans Call On Micah to Dump Friends Shelby & Ruby
Love Is Blind fans went on Reddit to voice their disgust with Micah’s friend Shelby’s behavior. They couldn’t believe they were laughing and smirking at their friend’s traumatic experience. One Reddit thread with over 2,600 upvotes said they hope Micah gets asked about Shelby on the live reunion episode.
“I think Micah gravitates towards mean girls to make herself look less like one,” one commenter chimed in.
“She seems to attract the worst types of people as friends and she should re-evaluate that about herself,” another added.
Replying to @heatherpower2016 What do you guys think of this interaction between Paul and Micah’s Bridesmaid? Innocent or Intentional?? #micahandpaul #paulandmicah #loveisblindseason4 #loveisblindseason4recap #greenscreen #greenscreenvideo credit to @thegabbi.rielle
On another Reddit thread with over 3,100 upvotes, a fan suggested maybe they were laughing because they knew the relationship was a sham from the beginning.
“Assuming it was fake crying maybe they’re laughing because they know it’s all an act and they it’s funny seeing Micah act,” said the reasonable commenter.
Love Is Blind alumnae Natalie Lee and Deepti Vempati discussed how they both informed family and friends before their wedding days to let them know they wouldn’t be getting married on their podcast Out Of The Pods. They also, on another episode, said they had sources telling them Paul and Micah’s relationship was fake showmance from the beginning.
Love Is Blind Fan Speculate Paul Had A Thing With Micah’s Bridesmaid Ruby
An eagle-eyed Love Is Blind watcher spotted Paul reaching behind him where Micah’s friend Ruby stood when he left Micah so her mom and friends could console her after the failed wedding. Micah’s mom Patrisha walks in front of Paul as his hand reaches back. After she’s out of the way Paul is exiting the door and Micah’s friend Ruby adjusts the back of her dress.
“And the brunette friend with the [butt] tap from Paul as he walked out of the room while you were crying!! Can we address this at the reunion please,” the fan said on one of Micah’s TikTok videos.
The moment in question happens with 55 minutes and 42 seconds left in the episode. However, it also could’ve been an innocent bumping into her, however it’s odd his hand reached back.
Paul and Ruby also follow each other on Instagram. Perhaps Paul and Ruby had more of a real connection than Micah and Paul on Love Is Blind season 4.
