Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love Outside The Show

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love Outside The Show

Fans of Love Is Blind have favorite couples, most hated couples, and the couples they wish stayed together. But what about the rest of the casts, across the seasons? Does anyone wonder what happened after the shows to the men and women who didn’t make a pod connection? Were there any Love Is Blind cast members who found love outside the show? Have any of them started families, or gotten up to anything significant since their time on the show? Let’s go through the seasons and see if any cast members didn’t need the experiment to fall in love.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Giannina Milady Gibelli, Season 1

After being rejected by Damian Powers, Giannina Milady Gibelli branched out of the Netflix Realityverse to forge her own path. The independent-minded influencer has made the jump to Bachelor Nation as she has connected with The Bachelorette standout Blake Horstmann. Blake has competed in two seasons of The Bachelorette, placing as the runner-up in season 14 and returning for the sixth season of Bachelor In Paradise.  The two have been a slow-burning item since December 2021 and love teasing fans with engagement rumors.

Just last month Giannina and Blake took a burst of cuddly photos from a beach at night. The caption read, “we say yes to so many opportunities that stop by, why stop now?” Not a few fans were fooled into thinking they were finally taking the plunge, and Giannina claimed she “didn’t really think that one through.” Of course not, but she definitely thought about it a little.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Jessica Batten & Mark Cuevas, Season 1

As we mentioned in our article about Love Is Blind couples who split, Jessica Batten and Mark Cuevas didn’t work out with each other on the show.  They are not married to each other, but they have both gotten married to other people outside the show. Mark’s spouse is Aubrey Rainey and they have two children. Jessica’s husband is Dr. Benjamin McGrath and they have one child together (Ben has two kids from a previous relationship). The two have different relationship timelines as well. Mark and Aubrey’s relationship announcement was in June 2020, and the engagement was official in November 2020. They had their two kids in April 2021 and February 2022 and finally tied the knot in September 2022.

Kenny Barnes is another cast member who found love after his onscreen engagement to Kelly Chase sadly crumbled before our eyes. The lighting professional has gotten lit with a new relationship with Alexandra Garrison, a Chief of Staff in her own right as advertiser/marketer at Red Ventures. Though the couple don’t have any kids yet, they have gone through the engagement and wedding stages. They got engaged very soon after the show in August 2020.

Their special day took place on April 30, 2022.  The pair celebrated Alexandra’s birthday this week and are still going strong.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Danielle Drouin, Season 1

Yoga instructor Danielle Drouin married Kerrington Sky on September 16, 2022. It looks like they started dating in May of 2020, as the first time we see them together is on a trip in St. Augustine, Florida. Danielle had a complicated journey through the pods, and her love story was never seen on the air. She was engaged to season love guru Rory Newbrough who frequently gave advice to the couples. They weren’t able to make it to the show’s honeymoon as the producers hadn’t banked on so many couples getting engaged in the pods. So, Rory and Danielle had their honeymoon in Miami, but Danielle wasn’t over her feelings for Matt Thomas, another cast member.

After a short-lived romance with Matt, Danielle settled down with Kerrington. Kerrington was not a contestant on the show, and he was from a totally different state as Atlanta-born Danielle has relocated to North Carolina to be with him. Kerrington is a talented lighting artist and while the two don’t have any children yet, they love their fur baby Santiago very much.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Westley Baer, Season 1

Westley with his girlfriend Brittany

Westley with his girlfriend Brittany (Instagram).

Self-proclaimed short guy salesman Westley Baer  had another wild off-screen romance with fellow salesperson Lexie Skipper. They fell hard for each other and even had a cute Christmas-themed pod date. Westley walked into his pod to find that Lexie had decorated it like Christmas, leading to Westley to cry happy tears. They went on their own honeymoon just like Danielle and Rory and were on their way to getting married. However, Westley made the choice to pack up and move to Bali, and he and Lexie grew apart. Westley and Lexie are both friends and live fairly close to one another in New York.

However, Westley is likely seeing someone else at the moment, and her name is Brittany Caid. Since Brianna’s profile is privated the only thing we know about her is that she lives in Nashville. Also, Westley hasn’t posted on IG since 2021, but he did post a picture of a trip he went on with Brittany to Denver. He has recently uploaded a short video of him giving a motivational speech while walking shirtless through a park. He hasn’t deleted any pictures of Brittany, so it looks like they’re still a couple.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Andy Rickert, Season 1

Andy Rickert didn’t have any real role on the show and mostly seems to want to put the experience behind him. The personal trainer, welder, and natural bodybuilder doesn’t seem suited to the polished, mundane LIB look. He enjoys travelling, the beach, writing, and his pets. But, he does have a beautiful love story that involves Danielle Drouin mentioned above. He didn’t fall in love in the pods, but he did fall for Danielle’s friend Kelsey. Because Kelsey’s profile is private we don’t even know her last name. But they have been together for over 3 years, despite not having any kids.

It turns out that Andy and Kelsey bonded over eggs, at an event for eliminated cast members. Danielle offered Kelsey the egg that had come in the ramen she ordered. Realizing they both love eggs, they formed an immediate connection. Most recently, they have travelled to Sapelo Island in Georgia.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Briana Holmes, Season 1

Briana and her boyfriend Remington

Briana and her boyfriend Remington (Instagram).

Briana Holmes had a terrible time in the pods and also featured heavily in the narrative about the show’s abusive working conditions. One of the men on her season said he wasn’t sure if he wanted to propose to her. She had a panic attack and ran outside, and got chased with cameras trying to record her distress for a viral moment. You might think that she would want this traumatizing moment to stay a secret, but Briana was further upset when it never aired. Plus, she had to quit her job as it reminded her of the pod experience. However, these days Briana has a lot going for her including a relationship with supportive boyfriend Remington A. Rolé.

Briana is currently a travel/lifestyle influencer, cofounded Network of Atlanta and is marketing director for tech conference Render ATL. While Briana was doing all of this, Remington planned a work event/birthday for Briana’s 30th with a trip to a Beyonce show last month. However Remington’s entry into Briana’s life seems to be very recent as the two don’t have many photos together.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: India Bridgeforth, Season 1

Another super impressive single who struck out in the pods, India Bridgeforth is getting married next summer. India already has a son, Carmelo, from a previous relationship, and has a thriving career in tech and has a sideline in music as well. She is always on the go, posting amazing vacation pics, trying out cosplays, and trying out new experiences just for fun.

The lucky guy is painter Chris Davis, and it looks like they were together for at least a year before he popped the question. India has a video highlighting 365 days of valentines, and another one where she tells the world about her engagement. Apparently they are having a destination wedding celebrating their Afro-Caribbean heritage, and they have travelled to many destinations together including Paris.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Ebony Alexis, Season 1

Ebony and her boyfriend Brett

Ebony and her boyfriend Brett (Instagram).

Ace reporter Ebony Alexis has her own line of beauty products and is the CEO of Social Justice Tees. Interviewing members of Migos or making the rounds at New York Fashion Week is all in a day’s work for the independent journalist. Though she mostly posts work photos to her Instagram, she appears to have found time for a relationship as well. Her boyfriend is Brett Allen, Jr., as Brett can be seen in a few pictures. However, we haven’t seen a lot of Brett in her recent pics.

Brett’s Instagram is a bit of a mystery too. He’s an MBA and a CPA, and his socials are still active, but he hasn’t posted at all recently. What is going on with these two? Until we get a confirmation, the lack of deleted pics suggest they’re together still.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Kara Williams, Season 2

Social media strategist Kara Williams dodged the madness and ruptured relationships of season 2 to find love on her own. She has only gone public with this relationship this week, but it seems that they have done a lot together. They’ve gone golfing, boating, attended concerts, and dined on rooftops. A friend of hers celebrating the relationship says that together, Kara and her new love are K+K. Based on who liked the post and judging from his photo, the other K is Kyle Hundelt.

Kyle is a bit of a private guy, but we know he is from Chicago and works for a well known real estate and investment management company.

Shake Chatterjee’s Instagram shows he’s happily engaged to Emily Wilson. As fans of season 2 will remember, Shake is a vet and newly involved in the mortgage industry. He turned into the season villain after getting dumped at the altar by Deepti Vempati. But as far as Emily is concerned, Shake is her hero from the moment they met on Spring Break 2022. Emily is an influencer and entrepreneur who is very proud of her Miami home.

Shake will be returning to the world of reality TV as part of E!’s House Of Villains He’ll be joined by a Legion of Doom of reality stars, including Omarosa from The Apprentice and Jax from Vanderpump Rules. 

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Salvador Perez, Season 2

Salvador Perez’s Instagram  shows that he has successfully relaunched his love life after season 2. Despite a genuine rapport with Mallory Zapata, the real estate broker couldn’t seal the deal at the altar.  His new flame is a big departure from wholesome Mallory. Leo Star aka Jessica Palkovic is an outspoken and uninhibited actress and Only Fans star who Sal has been dating since September 2021.

If you scroll down Jessi’s IG, you will find their origin story in her own words along with a reply to haters. Jessica was apparently a friend of Sal’s sister Victoria and met Sal at a birthday party. She attended the season’s reunion and they have been extremely close since.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Kyle Abrams, Season 2

Kyle Abrams‘s Instagram shows he’s happily in love with Tania Leanos. In late 2022, Kyle dropped a montage of photos and video clips of the happy couple together. Kyle, who’s skilled with cutting and installing glass into doors and windows, found love with Tania in September 2022. Now we have found out that Kyle and Tania are engaged, with the official announcement having dropped on April 11, 2023.

Tania herself is a multitalented individual who works as a financial consultant  but has also studied criminal law and journalism.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Amanda Peterson & Raven Ross Season 3

Amanda Peterson’s Instagram shows she found a partner with a mystery man and had a baby since going in the pods. She’s only the third Love Is Blind cast member to have a baby, which is shocking when you think about how many cast members have been on the show. Compare that to The Ultimatum, with only two seasons and far fewer cast members, but two babies already arrived.

Raven Ross also has a new boyfriend, although she hasn’t made their relationship official on Instagram.

Other than Cole Barnett maybe hiding a girlfriend, none of the other co-stars are dating anyone other than the two couples who got married that season.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Molly McGrew, Season 4

Molly with her boyfriend Steven (Instagram).

Chronically late marriage and family therapist Molly McGrew has a love story that sounds like a romance novel. Her current guy Steven is actually someone she’d known for 8 years, which is a record nobody on this list could ever beat. She seems very aware of the irony of going on a Netflix dating show and washing out, only to find love was right in front of her all along, while working on other couples’ problems at the same time. Molly’s announcement post is dated April 15th, which means she and Steven have been together for five months.

Molly says that she and Steven have dated on and off previously after meeting on a dating app. However, they never really found a spark until now. Molly, who loves yachting and her pup Pippa has also made friends with podmate April King. Her announcement post got supportive comments from Tiffany Pennywell Brown and Bliss Poureetezadi.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Kendra Patrick, Season 4

Super social worker Kendra Patrick is another background member of the cast who apparently had an outsized influence. On her IG, she’s compiled a supercut of all the times she was caught on camera working up a sweat on the gym equipment. Then, she appeared on After The Altar at Chelsea Griffin Appiah’s party. She’s apparently close with podmate Wendi Kong, who had her own almost-engagement with Jimmy Forde. In another reel she can be seen with Jackie Bonds and Monica, and she’s tagged Bliss and Amber Wilder in a pod squad post.

However Kendra’s girl friends aren’t what we’re here for. Kendra seems to be in a relationship, and we know what he looks like, but we don’t know his name. This tall bearded fellow appears in a burst of pictures taken from a June trip to Pao Alto, California. Kendra captioned the pics, “A bit of an Italian immersion weekend,” which hints at the fact that her boyfriend is Italian. But that’s all Kendra’s chosen to tell us!

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Jack Bonner, Season 4

Software salesman Jack Bonner  would have ended up married to Chelsea Griffin Appiah if things had gone differently in the pods. We never saw the connection Chelsea and Jack made on the show. But as we all know Chelsea decided to marry Kwame Appiah (despite the many red flags). Jack and Kwame are cool with each other and he is one of Kwame and Chelsea’s biggest fans. Jack did pop up in Episode 10 of the season and won many fans over with his positive attitude.

Positivity paid off for smilin’ Jack as he found love with yet another Chelsea after the pods. The quirky Chelsea Cree has been with Jack since July 12 of 2022 according to their announcement post. Now, Jack and Chelsea are slated to become The Bonners after Jack took a knee on May 1st of this year. They had their engagement party on June 10th with the hashtag #LoveIsNotBlind. According to this registry, the big day is coming soon on February 10th, 2024.

Love Is Blind Cast Members Who Found Love: Connor Fremmerlid, Season 4

Connor Fremmerlid seems too much of a buttoned-down dude for Love Is Blind. According to his LinkedIn profile he’s worked as an Operations Manager for major corporations like LAZ Parking and Wells Fargo. He’s got a Bible verse on his IG and he claims to want an old-school, old-fashioned love. The wild bunch of season 4 ladies weren’t going to go for that. And so Connor ended up as one of the many men who passed through the show unnoticed.

However Connor appears to have found the love he was looking for. He posted a burst of photos with licensed esthetician Jasmin Streidinger on April 18, and again on May 30th. He hasn’t posted since then, so assuming they are still together they have been a thing for 5 months. They’ve spent time going to concerts and football games, dining at rooftop restaurants, playing with fur babies and dressing up in cute costumes.

LIB Season 4 Star Marshall Glaze Is Dating A Doctor

We all saw Marshall Glaze debut his new girlfriend Chay Barnes after having his heart go through an endurance test. Chay showed up on After The Altar and Marshall has been extremely supportive since then. After The Altar for season 4 was filmed in May 2023, so they have been official since then. However a July 20th post on Marshall’s IG shows that they were together for a year before then.

LIB Season 4’s Paul Peden’s Dating Canadian Girlfriend Geneva Dunham

After getting caught up in a crazy love parallelogram, mild-mannered scientist Paul Peden has found happiness with Geneva Dunham. Geneva seems to be a lot less chaotic than Micah Lussier and Irina Solomonova were, and she shares Paul’s love of nature and exploration. Paul’s also fallen in love with the natural beauty of Geneva’s hometown of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Paul and Geneva got together in June, just after his season’s After The Altar. They are just testing the waters of their relationship, but they have been on a trip all across North America where they visited each other’s hometowns. Paul seems much happier and at ease now, even busting out some dance moves.

Jackie and Josh are still dating but not married after meeting in the pods on LIB 4 (Instagram).

Jackelina Bonds‘ epic drama with Marshall has been relitigated endlessly. Marshall and Jackie squashed their beef on After the Altar and we all breathed a sigh of relief. Jackie is still with Mr. Steal Yo Girl, aka Mr. Cauliflower Ears himself, Josh Demas. To hear Jackie tell it, Josh is her soul mate (and her daddy, too), and was a source of comfort for her as she buried her father. Jackie does want to start a new family with Josh, but they aren’t engaged quite yet. Over on Josh’s profile, they’re asking where Jackie is. This couple, who connected on the show in May 2022, is by no means done with the drama.
