Love Is Blind season 4‘s episode 8 introducers viewers to Micah Lussier‘s good friends Shelby Tschohl and Micayla (AKA McKayla) Floe who grilled Micah’s fiance Paul Peden. They’re not far from the same mean girl vibe as Micah’s bestie in the pods Irina Solomonova, the rude Russian American. Micah’s friends Shelby and Micayla laid into Paul and made it clear they could make or break his engagement with their best friend.
UPDATE: Now Love Is Blind fans are believe Paul grabbed Micah’s bridesmaid and friend Ruby’s butt at their wedding.
Micach’s best friend Shelby was celebrating her birthday at the Alibi Room – Greenwood pizzeria in Seattle, one spot where Love Is Blind season 4 filmed.
Meet Micah’s Friends Shelby And Micayla From Love Is Blind Season 4
Micah’s actual best friend isn’t Irina, who she apparently isn’t a fan of after finding she hit in Paul a bunch at the resort in Mexico, but blonde Shelby.
Shelby wasn’t a fan of Paul giving her attitude back when she was rude and tried to intimidate him.
“Shelby single-handedly has terminated relationships for me,” Micah warned Paul.
“A couple of them,” Shelby chimed in. “Because they weren’t good people and they sucked.”
Although Shelby keeps her Instagram private, she’s in several pictures on Micah’s Instagram. They went to the Washington State University together but appear to be best friends even before that. Ironically as Shelby torpedoed Micah and Paul’s engagement, Micah’s best friend has been married since 2018 to her husband Yossi Sarshar, according to her Facebook.
“Obviously, it is kind of a skill to date Micah,” Micayla told Paul.
Paul agreed and then she said she doubts that.
“Are you sure? ‘Cause I don’t know if you’d be here right now if you did,” Shelby responded, kind of snickering.
Micah’s friend Micayla goes by the name Micayla Floe on social media but keeps her accounts mostly private.
“I mean I can’t say that I care,” Paul responded when Shelby got offended he stuck up for himself.
“Don’t be like that,” Micah said, chastising him.
“I don’t know, I mean, I don’t.”
“I mean you should,” she insisted.
Paul responded, “I care for you.” Before eventually caving and saying he does care about what Shelby thinks of him.
Love Is Blind Season 4 Fans Don’t Care For Micah’s Friends Shelby And Micayla
Although Paul was diplomatic, Love Is Blind season 4 viewers didn’t hold back on Shelby and Micayla essentially sabotaging their friend Micah’s relationship. Twitter and Reddit dragged them for their rude welcome to Paul.

Micah’s friend are exactly like her. Annoyed that Paul can form complete and descriptive sentences while they can barely speak coherently. The girl in green is a complete hater. #LoveisBlind4 #loveisblind pic.twitter.com/AtULttJgEH

Micah’s friends are actually terrible people and she’s doing nothing to defend Paul. They are insulting him to his face and she does nothing except get mad that he says she doesn’t care what she says #LoveIsBlind #LoveIsBlindS4

Shelby also made fun of Paul for speaking with a high vocabulary and in full sentences.
“In this whole, like, articulate manner. Yeah,” she mocked. “We’re not used to that.”
After Paul left to go the bathroom Shelby tried to terminate Micah’s relationship with him.
“Yeah, I know. That kind of makes me sick,” Micayla said about Micah saying she’s in love.
“I’m 100% not with it,” Shelby said. “I’m the most protective person of Micah because that’s my best friend in the entire world. And I will never not be skeptical because of how I feel about her. I’ve been there for so much. And I just think that I need more. I need more,” she said drunkenly.
“I just feel like that this wasn’t meant for you. Like you’re meant to have the most spectacular everything. You’re Micah. And I think you deserve that. You’re meant to have your best wedding of your life. You’re meant to have all this, and this isn’t it.”
In Shelby and Micayla’s defense, the two appeared to be drinking a lot to celebrate Shelby’s birthday. Also, the interaction was heavily edited, so perhaps Paul wasn’t as nice as the exchange portrays. Although Paul generally comes across as a sweetheart.
We’ll have to wait and see if Micah’s real-life mean girls friends Shelby and Micayla come the wedding and further sabotage Micah and Paul getting married.
