In case you hadn't heard, the newest, greatest reality TV craze is Netflix's Love Is Blind. Fans have gone absolutely nuts over the premise—a handful of men and women fall in love inside pods that don't allow the two people to ever see each other—and as we head into the show finale, which drops Thursday, people are going nuts. As we wait with bated breath to see which of our couples made it all the way down the aisle (Lauren and Cameron forever!), allow me to present: The very best reactions to Love Is Blind so far.
Side note: If you aren't fully caught up, or haven't had a chance to watch the show yet, I tried not to spoil too many plot points, but a few may have snuck in there. You should definitely go watch before Thursday, though, because people are going to have thoughts about the finale.
Fans are shocked—shocked!—that they love it so much.
The term "love is blind" refers to how when you're in love you ignore or don't see red flags in a relationship but this Netflix show has the phrase ass backwards yet i'm ADDICTED to this insanity. You aren't in love bro, you're desperate. Keep it coming tho pic.twitter.com/Pb52gzTJP3February 26, 2020

me: love is blind is a dumbass show, fuckin cringey and it is garbage entertainment. none of it makes sense and they are all INSANE for claiming they are in love after 4 days.*cameron talks about how much he loves lauren*also me: pic.twitter.com/nvpNmEY1LcFebruary 24, 2020
There are even some famous fans!
And the show's drawing a few comparisons to that reality tv show.
People are marveling over the utterly insane premise.

Netflix really put a bunch of 20-something boys and 30something women in a box and told them to get married in four weeks. genius. I’m watching all of it. #LoveIsBlindFebruary 13, 2020

The first season of love is blind before the weddings should have been black screens for us so we would also be blind oooooooo shitFebruary 23, 2020
