Love Is Blind season 5 stars Johnie Maraist and Chris Fox hit it off in the pods. But Johnie fell into old habits of falling for emotionally unavailable players when she picked Izzy Zapata. However, she got rejected by him and then tried to patch things up with Chris. But he wasn’t interested in being second place, breaking things off for good. Or so he thought. He ran into Johnie at the airport and they hit it off. When the cast met up back in the their home city of Houston, Texas, they came as a couple. So, are Johnie and Chris still together over a year after filming Love Is Blind season 5?
At the hangout in episode seven, Johnie and Chris appeared pretty smitten. Johnie cried in a confessional with producers because her mom was so happy she met someone she approved of. She said her mom liked him way more than any of her previous boyfriends. However, Izzy felt the need to bash Johnie and tell her everyone thinks she ‘s “sketchy”. He also accused her of being a liar because she told opposite stories to him and Chris.
Johnie returned to Chris and teared up, telling him Izzy essentially told her she didn’t deserve to be with Chris. Johnie told Izzy she was now trying to make things up to Chris for him being her second choice in the pods.
Are Johnie And Chris Still Together After Love Is Blind Season 5?
Despite the two getting serious after running into each other at the airport, and Johnie introducing Chris to her mom, it doesn’t look like things lasted. Johnie’s Instagram shows she isn’t following Chris on Instagram, he isn’t following her either. Adding to the likelihood they broke up, they both don’t have any pictures together.
Although Izzy said everyone thought Johnie was “sketchy as [bleep]”, she has at least one good friend from the show experience. She and Aaliyah formed a strong friendship. They’ve shared IG stories of them together.
Chris spoked to Today and suggested there still may be hope for him and Johnie, though.
“When you finally meet somebody that you have that kind of emotional bond with, that you’ve fallen in love with, you don’t just mess that up because of something outside of your control,” Chris said. “Everybody’s there trying to find their person and, unfortunately, she thought that another option was better. But you don’t want to miss an opportunity to find our forever.”
But the end of the interview sounded ominous for how things ended.
“I did fall in love. Unfortunately, there were some speed bumps that pulled me away from that ending.”
