Am I the only one who has binged Netflix’s Love Is Blind – twice? Well, I did, and I’m not sorry for it. This show is a reality television masterpiece. It has everything fans of romantic reality shows love – proposals out of nowhere, hot tubs and rose petals, epic fights featuring Beyonce lyrics, and Jessica Batten (google her). It’s so great to watch a first season of a reality show. The kinks haven’t been worked out yet, and it doesn’t have a reputation, which makes it more authentic. Part of the fun of watching this show was the extreme social experiment of getting engaged to someone you’ve never seen. But what was more fun was how messy it got. Literally.
Giannina Gibelli was a standout personality. She proposed to Damian Powers in the pods, and then continually self-sabotaged throughout the “experiment.” On the day of their wedding, Giannina was denied by Damian at the alter and she quickly became the runaway bride who fell in mud. Then in the next scene, we see her dramatically confront Damian, and her dress is whiter than white. People on Twitter were quick to call out shoddy editing.
In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, Giannina avidly denies that her wedding scenes were shown out of sequence. She said, “You don’t want to look dirty. No one wants to look dirty!” Okay, sure.
Giannina emphasized, “after I took that little tumble, I got back up, dusted myself off and cleaned [the wedding dress]. Because if I’m going to confront this man that I’m angry [with], I want to feel my best. So, I scrubbed it in the bathroom.”

This is a little hard to believe considering how dirty her white dress was. The mud stain was sizeable, so I’m not sure I’m buying that she was able to completely remove the stain so that her dress looked like it had never been damaged.
Giannina understands that this sounds crazy, and told Entertainment Tonight, “My mom was like, ‘What are you doing? Stop that. Get out of that dress!’ I was like, ‘No, Mom. I need to clean it…I wanted to literally just clean and kind of restart.”
Even though the couple didn’t get married, they are still dating. Damian was present for the Entertainment Tonight interview and confirmed her story. “She’s not kidding. That’s how she is,” he said. I’m not sure how that’s possible but also not sure why they wouldn’t chalk it up to bad editing. What I am sure of is that I’ll be watching Season 2 of Love Is Blind.
