Perfect Match‘s Shayne Jansen was a controversial pick for Netflix after he took a lot of heat from Love Is Blind season 2 fans for his erratic behavior on the show.

Natalie even claims Shayne signed up for Perfect Match in late 2021 at a time they were still dating and lied to her about it. Shayne responded by posting an Instagram story defending himself. chasing and left Chicago to help his sick mother.

After Shayne starred in Love Is Blind season 2, LIB fans accused (without proof) the highly energetic guy of being a heavy cocaine user.
“I have experience with a few of them. Nothing that’s been injected into my body, but I think we’ve all had times in our lives where we’ve done certain things,” Shayne told Nick Viall on his podcast The Viall Files.
“That’s false,” Shayne said when asked if he did drugs while on the Love Is Blind set. “Obviously not a secret anymore, but I have severe, severe ADHD. And you’re sitting in this tiny little room for like three hours,” he added. Apparently he also gets very hopped up on caffeine each day. He takes five espresso shots in the morning and three in the early afternoon. “I don’t help my anxiety. This is five shots of espresso right here,” Shayne said on the podcast about his iced coffee drink.
Perfect Match‘s Shayne first matched with The Circle France‘s Ines Tazi. Unfortunately Ines couldn’t vibe with Shayne and abandoned their coupling. He then matched with Too Hot to Handle season 3’s Izzy Fairthorne, although that also looks to be short-lived. At a tumultuous time in his life when filming Perfect Match, it looks like Shayne’s heart wasn’t in it. Previews from future Perfect Match episodes show the heart-on-his-sleeve romantic looking to bail on the show.
