Netflix managed to hit a home run when Love Is Blind first came out. The streaming service staked its claim as a definite competitor when it came to original reality TV content. They’ve tried to recapture lightning in a bottle since but to varying degrees of success. However, the Love Is Blind Season 5 cast may be just what the network needs.
Meet the new Love Is Blind contestants!
Netflix made the announcement via Instagram, showcasing the cast in an interview setting. In response to the question “Why are you still single?” 30-year-old HR specialist, Maris, said, “I have a mouth on me and I don’t apologize about it.” Meanwhile, Josh, the 32-year-old sales rep said, “I tend to pick people that don’t fit me and try to mold myself into a person for them.”
A stylist, Paige, 32, said, “I have great taste and I just haven’t found the right person yet … A lie.” And an ICU travel nurse, Aaliyah, 29, responded, “My parents would just say, ‘You need to sit your ass down somewhere so that you could actually fall in love with somebody!’” 32-year-old veterinarian, Renee, said, “Either I can date the mailman or the pool guy, or I gotta get out of the house.”

A majority of the time, I usually am.” A 32-year-old flight attendant, Shondra, said, “I use my hands when I talk.” Stacy, 34, a director of operations, said, “I burp a lot. Like, truck driver belch.” 28-year-old Chris, a project manager, said, “My diet is really bad … I just eat fast food a lot.”
