There’s no questions the overwhelming majority of the Love Is Blind fanbase now find all but one man of season 3 to be villains by episode 10. Brennon Lemieux and SK (Sikiru) Alagbada were the two good guys contrasting Cole Barnett‘s moody bluntness towards Zanab Jaffrey. Contrasting Matt Bolton repeatedly lashing out at Colleen Reed with his extreme jealousy. Also juxtaposing Bartise Bowden‘s juvenile behavior and rudeness to his fiancée Nancy Rodriguez. Yet, SK’s two-faced turn from being a doting fiancé to judgmentally rejecting Raven Ross on their wedding day shocked viewers. Love Is Blind fans are angered and bashing SK for getting Raven to fall in love with him only to crush and humiliate her in front of family and friends.
However, the rash of anger online may be premature, because the couple are likely still dating. That, and Love Is Blind‘s scripted storylines and editing could also play into making SK’s decision look more shocking than it actually was.
Love Is Blind Season 3 Fans Drag SK For Saying ‘I Do Not’ To Raven At Altar
Fans couldn’t believe SK led on Raven throughout the show that he was more than ready to marry her, only to reject her on the big day.
“I have a treasure in my hand. That’s how I feel,” SK said about Raven in the leadup to the wedding. He told her a lot about how great their future would be together, which turned out to be sweet nothings.
“This is going to be SK and Raven’s world,” he said on the romantic gondola date.
In his monologue he said, “I love her and I want her to be my wife.”
“I have to adopt your dreams too, you know, like it’s our dreams,” SK said days before the wedding day. “I can’t wait to make more memories with you … really can’t wait until I show you the world.”
If that wasn’t enough to make Raven convinced he’d commit, he told her she’s the one.
“I feel great about this. Uh, not about leaving, but about, like, you know, the future. You know, I’ve never really had any reason to, like, not believe in us, you know.” Perhaps all those filler words were a sign he wasn’t being exactly honest.
All of this effusive love-bombing in the leadup to their ill-fated wedding day angered Love Is Blind season 3 fans who are now bashing SK on Twitter.
SK’s response on wedding day is literally my biggest disappointment of the whole show. Raven was your “treasure” this whole time. You’ve been molding her to fit your culture and she’s happily obliged and you ditch her? I’m done. #LoveIsBlind #LoveisBlindS3 pic.twitter.com/i2J5QiOBb5

It seems like SK was patient, broke down Raven’s walls and made her fall in love with him only to leave her in tears after saying “I do not”. The way Raven said, “what’s wrong with me? I never wanna have another wedding” ??… he opened her up only to leave. #LoveIsBlind

Can’t stand men like him. Honestly the worst. These are self proclaimed “good guys” because they aren’t explicitly nasty. But truth be told. They are fake and liars for omitting the truth

Fans should be more disappointed they missed out on the many fun Nigerian customs and traditions of a Yoruba wedding.
However, some fans of the show came to SK’s defense.
I think he's being unfairly judged after this episode. As a reality TV Producer I promise you we the audience were misdirected. I promise you there are plenty of soundbites of him expressing his feelings and they chose not to air them.

SK responded to the “trolls” attacking him online by posting an IG story of him in a class in California at Berkeley where he’s getting his MBA and ignoring the haters.
“Leading up to the wedding, I was still in very, very good shape,” SK told E! News. “I felt like the differences we had and the things we were working [on] was something we could resolve. But at the end of the day, when I came to the altar on that day, there were still outstanding things that we had.”
He also told the news outlet they’ve spoke after the wedding and are on good terms, but didn’t give anything away about where their relationship stands today.
SK & Raven Still Together Likely & Fans Need To Wait For Reunion Episode
Even though fans are jumping to conclusions that SK is not a good guy after watching episode 10, Raven and SK are together still most likely.
“We have a very unique and complex set of circumstances. I feel like today is not the best time for us to do this,” SK told Raven at the altar after declining to marry her.
“…I know there are so many other unanswered questions,” SK explained in a monologue interview on his failed wedding day. When Netflix releases the finale and reunion episodes on November 9 fans will finally get some answers and clarity on why SK said no to Raven.
He still had “a little issue with the family situation”. He also wanted her to move with him to California. Also, he didn’t like some of the things that “she’s very strong about”.
One things for sure, though, SK still loved Raven at the end of the show.
“It is no question in my mind, I love Raven,” SK said at the time.
SK’s Instagram suggests that love for Raven hasn’t dimmed over the past year since the show was filmed. He posted several pictures of him and Raven together since the show started airing. He only had positive things to say about her.
Raven has also shared lots of pictures on IG with captions suggesting the couple are still very much in love.
She also had a lot of nice things to say about SK’s mom.
Fans will have to wait until next Wednesday for the reunion episode to find out what happened to SK and Raven. Love Is Blind viewers can’t wait to know if they’re engaged and in a committed long-distance relationship. Hopefully SK will give fans more details on why he said no at the altar, too.
