Netflix Orders ‘Love Is Blind’ Reality Dating Series Hosted By Nick & Vanessa Lachey From ‘Married At First Sight’ Producer


Vanessa and Nick Lachey

EXCLUSIVE: Netflix is expanding its unscripted slate with a 10-episode order to Love is Blind, its first serialized unscripted dating series, hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey. The show, from Married at First Sight producer Kinetic Content, will premiere globally over three weeks beginning February 13, tied to the Valentine’s Day holiday.

Love Is Blind looks at whether looks or age do matter in romantic relationships, or if love is really blind.
Hosted by the Lacheys, in the series, 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.
Kinetic Content’s Chris Coelen, Sam Dean, Ally Simpson, Eric Detwiler, Brian Smith executive produce.
The concept of Love Is Blind is somewhat reminiscent of Kinetic Content’s social experiment hit Married at First Sight, Lifetime’s top series for the past two years, which was recently renewed for two more supersized seasons. Kinetica Red Arrow Studios company, is behind the top 3 shows on Lifetime, MAFS, Little Women Atlanta, andLittle Women LA.
The premiere of Love Is Blind comes a year after Netflix ventured into the dating reality show arena with Dating Around. The six-episode series, which debuted February 14, 2019, featured a single who goes on five blind first dates and is then tasked with picking one match who’s worthy of a second date.

Vanessa Lachey Says Husband Nick Lachey Is Sexiest in His 'Boy Band Peak' Attire


"When I look at Nick, I still get butterflies in my stomach," Vanessa Lachey says in PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive issue

They’ve been married for eight years, but Vanessa and Nick Lachey haven’t lost that spark.
“When I look at Nick, I still get butterflies in my stomach,” Vanessa, 39, tells PEOPLE in this week’s Sexiest Man Alive issue. “I look at him and I go, ‘He’s mine!'”
But it’s not just about how he makes her feel. Vanessa says her 98 Degrees singer husband, 46, goes out of his way to be an equal partner at home and with their three children, Camden, 7, Brooklyn, 4 and Phoenix, 2.
“He cleans the pool, he does lawn work and he does the laundry,” Vanessa says. “And no matter how late he worked the night before, he’s up at 6 a.m. with the kids no matter what. Because he knows I’m not a morning person.”
And when it comes to Nick’s daily attire, Vanessa is unequivocal about her favorite look.
“The sexiest on him is a white tee shirt, baggy jeans and Timberlands with a backwards hat,” she says. “It’s like boy band peak. And I’m transported to my childhood.”
Still, Nick jokes that romantic serenades are infrequent. “It wouldn’t be this incredibly sexy moment,” he says. “But there have been times that she’s seen me in concert and gone, ‘Wow.'”
Ultimately, Vanessa says she’s grateful for a husband who supports her — and knows what she needs.
“In this day and age, yes, I am a very independent woman and I am a mother of three and I’m a badass, but I am still Nick’s wife,” she says. “And I am still a woman who likes to be told she looks beautiful and have the door opened for me. He lets me do what I want work-wise, but then he puts me on a pedestal. It’s the best of both worlds.”
