Love Is Blind Season 4 is done and dusted, all that’s left is the bonus material. Stuff you didn’t see, or things that got cut. And we have confirmation from Netflix that there were at least two other proposals in the pods that blossomed, bloomed and died. And now there are rumors of a third involving Jackie’s Josh. As we go through the sad stories of these failed romances you might see things Netflix’s way. Or, you might wonder why we were denied even more juicy drama. It all depends on your perspective and whether you thought season 4 had enough ridiculous behavior. Let’s review the players in these games and talk about Love Is Blind: Three Failed Engagements You Never Saw.
Love Is Blind: Three Failed Engagements — Josh Demas (?) and Monica Rodriguez
We’ve covered how cauliflower-eared tough-guy Josh Demas ended up with Jackelina Bonds, who apparently satisfied her craving for “toxic” love. We’ve forgotten this as the weeks have gone by but Jackie had her own gang on the show. Accordingly, this crew consisted of her, Kacia Clark, Kendra Patrick and Monica Rodriguez. Along the way the bridge between Jackie and her ex Marshall Glaze got undeniably burned forever. Jackie has also apparently ended things with her ex-pod squad member Kacia Clark. At the reunion, Jackie accused Marshall of wanting to keep his ring so he could give it to Kacia. Obviously, Marshall has addressed this and said he did date Kacia. However he wasn’t in the right frame of mind after Jackie dumped him and they didn’t go further. Consequently, it seems that Jackie’s man was at one point engaged to another member of this crew but broke it off.
On Monica’s IG, she says she did receive a proposal and a ring, but after the reveal things fell apart very quickly. The 32-year-old teacher broke her silence after she noticed that coverage of the other relationships didn’t include her. Monica doesn’t reveal who the mystery man is, but there is a TikTok that alleges that it is Josh. Fans have asked her about the Josh rumors, but so far Monica has not confirmed or denied. Monica does still follow Jackie on IG, and it’s mutual for Jackie, so there is that.
Love Is Blind:Three Failed Relationships- Josh “JP” Schultz and Ava Van Jenson
We saw Josh “JP” Schultz popping up at various points during the season. He spoke with Jackie and apparently had a connection with both Micah Lussier and Chelsea Griffin. However, his ultimate connection was with Ava Van Jenson. Ava, who is two years older than Josh and has already been married once before, became JP’s #1 after Micah and Chelsea were taken. Although Ava did say yes to JP’s proposal, this was another example of the relationship disintegrating once the wall came down (or after the cameras disappeared early). JP also took the jerk move of ending the engagement via text, something he doesn’t dispute. Ava, a communication specialist with the Lake Washington School District, was heartbroken and a post on Ava’s IG details her sorrow.
Ava also calls out JP, saying “he just wanted 58 seconds and to be on Perfect Match.” She says that she was subjected to “fraud. Deceit. Lies. Bullying. Many of which happened after the filming.” It’s not clear whether JP was responsible, but he does say their in person meeting was heavy and awkward.
JP responded on Instagram in a statement, where he denied an intentions other than finding a wife to start a family with. He also shared text messages between the two which reveals he apparently broke up with her on the flight home to Seattle after he found out they wouldn’t be staying on the show and heading to the resort in Mexico.
Love Is Blind:Three Failed Proposals Jimmy Forde and Wendy Kong
Finally, we have the one relationship that didn’t end in tears and recrimination. Daredevil Jimmy Forde, who works for lending website Upstart, and high-flying aerospace engineer Wendi Kong clicked in the pods. They never went to Mexico, but dated for three months before parting amicably. 29-year-old Jimmy wished Wendi the best on Jimmy’s IG, and Wendi thanked him for his kind words. In a surprising turn, 28-year-old Wendi did connect with Paul Peden after moving on from Jimmy. However, that pairing was not to last, as Paul says they were almost too compatible. Whatever that means. We’re sure the scientist has a very sound explanation.
We’ll be watching all the Love Is Blind season 4 cast members to see if they patch things up or move on.
