Viewers Think Netflix's New Dating Show Love Is Blind Is So 'Crazy' It's Addictive
New Netflix show Love is Blind has viewers hooked already after debuting earlier this month, with many torn between feeling completely baffled by the 'crazy' premise and simply not being able to stop watching it. Yep, sounds like all the makings of a quintessential reality series to me.
The concept behind the 10-part series is fairly simple, as it couples up singles who want to be loved for 'who they are, rather than what they look like' - meaning it's not worlds apart from the Married at First Sight franchise.
Contestants start speaking to a selection of potential partners, but don't get to see what they look like as they try to forge a connection, only being allowed to clock eyes on each other once there's been a proposal.
Billed by Netflix as a 'three-week event', the programme synopsis offers: "In the Netflix series Love is Blind, singles who want to be loved for who they are, rather than what they look like, have signed up for a less conventional approach to modern dating where they hope to meet the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with... Without ever having seen them.
"With no distractions from the outside world, the singles talk to a stream of potential love interests and when a meaningful connection is made, they propose and then lay their eyes on their fiancé for the first time.
"Engaged and back in the real world, as the couples plan their wedding day, they will quickly discover whether they can turn their emotional connection into a physical one before the fast-approaching ceremony.

"Hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, this addictive 10-part series will uncover whether looks or age do matter, or if love really is blind."
Since the programme was added to the streaming service on 13 February, viewers have been baffled, shocked and addicted in equal measure, with many arguing the premise is 'crazy', while others argue that's all part of charm.
