Netflix's Love Is Blind finally concluded its "experiment," bringing to an end three weeks of drama, tears, and, of course, the pods! In the season one finale, each of the remaining engaged couples met at the altar to either say "I do" or publicly end their relationship in front of a room full of family and friends. ICYMI, only two couples actually got married, but that doesn't mean some of the others aren't back together.
If you're anything like me, you've been stalking the Love Is Blind cast's Instagrams since episode one for clues on what they're up to now. Are Gigi and Damien back together? How are Amber and Barnett doing in the real world? And will Mark finally get the love he deserves?
Well, a source close to the show spoke to Women's Health about all your favorite on-screen couples and shared which relationships lasted IRL. Here's everything you need to know about who stayed together, who remained friends, and who will probably never speak again:
Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton
Lauren and Cameron were by far the easiest couple to stan. And if you didn't shed a tear during their wedding vows, were you even watching Love Is Blind? When asked for an update on their relationship, the source close to the show said, they're still happily married (whew!).
"They celebrated their one year anniversary back in Mexico. And they're just adorable," the source said. And although Lauren's parents were skeptical up until the wedding, they've reportedly come around. "Their families love them. They're beautiful humans. And they're truly the essence of Love is Blind," they added.
Giannina Gibelli (Gigi) and Damien Powers
Tbh, Gigi and Damien's relationship was super volatile throughout the season (they may have even given The Bachelor's Peter and Victoria F. a run for their money...). But according to the show's source, everyone close to the show assumed they'd both say yes on wedding day. Instead, Damien told Gigi she wasn't "all in" during most of their relationship, and the two ended it on camera.
But, apparently, things changed after the finale. "Once the cameras went away, they ended up regrouping and talking and [now] they're like 'We love each other; We just don't need to be married right away,'" the source said. A year and half after the show originally filmed, Gigi and Damien have reportedly moved in and are living together.
Kelly Chase and Kenny Barnes
Surprise, surpriseone of the most stable couples throughout the entire show doesn't actually end up together. If you've seen the final episode, then you know Kenny says yes to forever and Kelly says no, leaving him stranded at the altar to give a beautiful, yet awkward, speech to his family and friends.
Since then, the abandoned groom has moved on. "Kenny is in a very happy relationship as of right now," the source said. "He moved to North Carolina, [and] he's got a new jobjust a totally new setting." Kelly, on the other hand, is single and still looking for love.
Carlton Morton and Diamond Jack
Carlton and Diamond 's breakup was tragic. These two didn't make it past Mexico after Carlton revealed to Diamond that he was bisexual and had previously been in relationships with men. Eventually, everything came to a head with one explosive fight filled with every four-letter word you can imagine.
The two haven't done much talking after the show. But the source said that they recently suggested that they both start speaking again, considering that the show would debut soon and they might have to do interviews together (sounds like a reunion is on the horizon!). "So they're talking now, and they're cordial and friendly, which is really nice," the source said. But their relationship status? Single.
Jessica Batten and Mark Cuevas
Have you ever seen the movie He's Just Not That Into You? Clearly, Mark hasn't. His relationship with Jessica was off the entire show, from the pods to the day he (and only he) said, "I do."
"He was always far more committed to her than she ever was to him," the source said, which is obviously true having watched the finale. According to the source, Jessica "really struggled with the Barnett storyline."
Since the show ended, Jessica lives part-time in Chicago, but mainly in LA. "She hasn't dated," the source said. "She's been doing marathons and really focusing on herself."
And, according to conversations with other cast members, the source reported that Mark recently ended a five- or six-month relationship because his new girlfriend "wasn't ready for all the ways the show might affect them." So both Jess and Mark are single again.
Amber Pike and Matt Barnett
Despite having cold feet on the wedding day, both Amber and Matt (a.k.a. Barnett) chose to say "I do." But how did these two make out IRL? According to the source, they're still together and very happily married.
"Although they did have a brief momentnot so much a break upbut a moment where they were like 'Should we really be married? Is this going the right way?'" the source said. But the two managed to work things out. And Amber has reportedly changed her last name to Barnett. So... maybe Matt will start using his real name, now?
