If you’ve been on any social media platform in the last few weeks, then there’s no way you haven’t heard about Netflix’s new original show, Love Is Blind. The entire premise of the reality show, which is really rather more of a social experiment, where contestants get to know each other, and hopefully find love, from two sides of a dividing wall. Fifteen men and fifteen women are sent on blind dates in which the contestants get to know each other, taking notes without ever actually seeing any of their possible love interests. Completely isolated, contestants step away from reality and into pods in hopes of walking down the aisle for their fantasy tv wedding. 

Though the show aired just recently, it was actually filmed in late 2018. When prompted on where the couples stand today, Chris Coelen, the show’s creator and executive producer, has said: “Without giving anything away, the people who decided to get married, anybody that does that is still together today...that’s going on almost a year and half.” It’s finale, which dropped on Netflix on Thursday, revealed which of the five final couples made it down this aisle and which didn’t (spoiler alert, there’s a runaway bride). 

Spoiler! Here’s a breakdown of the final five couples:

Cameron Hamilton & Lauren Speed

These two caught viewer's hearts when they got engaged at the end of the first episode. Luckily, things worked out for these two and they ended the series as husband and wife. Oh, and they got a dog! 

Damian Powers & Giannina Gibelli

Unfortunately for fans of this couple, they are no longer. Especially considering Damian broke off their engagement at the altar. 

Mark Cuevas & Jessica Batten

If you’ve heard of a runaway bride appearing on this series...you found her. Jessica ran out of her own wedding leaving Mark while someone at the ceremony said, “This is so embarrassing for her”. 

Matt Barnett & Amber Pike 

This couple, who focused more on their sexual connection rather than their romantic one, did in fact end up being the second couple to make it to the altar and say “I do”. 

Kenny Barnes & Kelly Chase

While they seemed like a good match, unfortunately it was too good to last. Kenny told Kelly at their wedding that he didn’t love her. She walked out.
