if you a love is blind Fans, you remember Nick Thompson – he was briefly engaged to Danielle Ruhl in the second season of the show.
In a recent interview with Insider, Nick didn’t have great things to say about his experience on the show.
“It was just a pretty awful experience overall,” Nick said, alleging that the production expected the cast to film for up to 20 hours a day and didn’t provide enough food and water. He also claims that he lost 15 pounds during the three weeks of filming.
He also claimed that the contestants’ passports and phones were taken from them during filming. He said, “I recently met a guy who was in a cult for 10 years and it’s like that. That’s what they did to him.”
Netflix, as well as the show’s production company Kinetic Content, did not respond to Insider’s request for comment on Nick’s allegations — but it should be noted that he isn’t the only person speaking out about being on the show.
Earlier this year, Amber Pike – who appeared on the show’s first season with now husband Matt Barnett – spoke out against love is blind and added that they are still together “despite” the show.
When asked about the couple’s relationship with the show’s producers, she said, “I told them to stay away from us.” Oh!
