Hi, what are you looking for?


Nick Lachey gave a not-so-good response to claims that “Love Is Blind” weeds out black women

Last month, Lauren took to Twitter to claim that there was a discrepancy between the number of black women shown in the show’s promotional material and the number that made it into the final cut:

I don’t like how LIB cuts off all black women. How come they’re always in the trailer but not on the show… 👀

In fact, several black women were cast in Season 3, but they rarely appeared.

He went on to claim that “about 85%” of the couples were “forced” anyway, meaning more black women could easily have been selected to progress through the show:

I know there are few options, but about 85% of them, the couples are forced (they just move forward for entertainment purposes) anyway. They could at least force a few more sisters forward during the show. 🤷🏾‍♀️

And he pointed out that some couples who got engaged on the show were never televised, which, as we know from seasons 1 and 2, is very true:

It’s the couples who get engaged that sometimes don’t even show themselves. I think they just show what they find most entertaining.

Well, host Nick Lachey was asked about entertainment tonight what he thought of Lauren’s comments, and he, perhaps unsurprisingly, maintained that there was no orchestration behind the couples we see on the show. “It’s a fair observation, but the counterargument is that it’s not rigged in the sense that people gravitate to who they gravitate to,” he began.

“That’s not something that the producers or anyone else can dictate or take away or have dictated or take away. People make connections in the pods for whatever reason, and those connections then stick around for the rest of the season.”

“I think all you can do in terms of being on the show and being in the casting department is cast fairly and with great diversity. I think they’ve done a good job of trying to do that,” she continued.

“How it plays out, I can’t really answer that part other than I know it’s not dictated or manipulated… who moves on. It’s really, really the connections that they blindly make in the pods.”

This isn’t the first time Lachey has tried to explain the show’s lack of diversity; Earlier this summer, Vanessa claimed that the reason more plus-size contestants weren’t appearing on the show was because they were “insecure.”

All very normal and fine!
