Here’s a look at some of the show’s notable contestants.

 

KENNY BARNES & KELLY CHASE

 

The 27-year-old architectural lighting consultant is a quiet fixture on “Love is Blind”.  He and Kelly Chase have made it to the wedding on the show. Chase, 32,  revealed she is attracted to Barnes as a friend, but not romantically.

The ladies of “Love is Blind” are burning up over Matt Barnett.   Several of the contestants have been won over by Barnett’s charming personality, including Amber Pike. The 26-year-old cocktail waitress’ fiery personality instantly attracted Barnett.  Matt is a 27-year-old engineer who is ready to be part of a mature relationship. The two have clashed on finances and lifestyle preferences, in addition to a looming third wheel.

 

CAMERON HAMILTON & LAUREN SPEED
