this show is absolutely immaculate! it teaches EXCELLENT lessons about having a physical connection, as Nick and Vanessa Lachey said. It also teaches good lessons about safe sex, as no one’s ever gotten pregnant from the show. Also, it teaches the kiddos just how important looks are in a relationship! Going through love blind looks like hell, and you couldn’t pay me to go through with it.

Too much vulgarity

Did not watch 2nd or 1st season but 3rd season has so much F bombs and cursing. As an adult I had to turn it off because it was just too much vulgarity. The clothing is also very immodest and some other crude talk. Without that aspect it would be a great show that has participants focusing on more than just appearances.

Is It Any Good?

This interesting social experiment underscores the idea that couples form stronger bonds when they're not distracted by physical appearance. It's a constructive reminder, especially in today's world of dating apps that are focused on physical attraction, but one has to question the wisdom behind pushing people toward a marriage proposal after spending less than two weeks on a reality show getting to know each other. Meanwhile, the cast members, who vary in age, background, race, and ethnicity, still resemble the attractive groups featured on other popular reality shows. Sex is still important to them, too. Adding to all of this is the drama that results from the engaged couples learning to live with each other's idiosyncrasies while dealing with concerned parents and other challenging issues. Bottom line? Love Is Blind's premise may be unique, but it's filled with the usual drama that makes reality dating TV a guilty pleasure.
