Love is Blind fans know that Jessica Batten and Mark Cuevas‘s relationship was pretty much over before it actually began. She wanted to be with [Matt] Barnett and never seemed to give Mark a chance, constantly mentioning that he was “24 years old,” which she was very much aware of right from the jump.
Obviously, these two didn’t make it down the aisle. But, after the show, Mark was dating LC Chamblin, another Love is Blind cast member who wanted to marry Barnett. This guy has a type, right? Well, apparently LC found out Mark was cheating on her in a Reddit thread with a bunch of women and Jessica chimed in saying she knew he was cheating with one woman, but didn’t know about the others. Now, it seems like Mark and Jessica have finally put the past behind them.
Jessica went Instagram official with a new man on Fourth of July, writing, “Happy Fourth! Freedom isn’t free. I’m thankful to be able to follow my heart and choose my own happiness. I hope you all do the same!!! For those who have asked, this is why I would do it all over again. Can’t wait to share some of our adventures…”
She didn’t tag the guy in the photo, but Entertainment Tonight reported that her new man is Benjamin McGrath, a foot and ankle surgeon from California.
“Coincidentally,” Mark went public with his new relationship just a few hours later. He didn’t tag his girlfriend in the photo, simply captioning it with “Thankful.” However, a “source” (most likely Mark himself) told People, “They’ve been seeing each other for a bit. He’s very happy with her.”
