Warning: The following post contains spoilers for Netflix's Love Is Blind.

If you're reading this, then there's a good chance you've already stumbled upon Love Is Blind, Netflix's new reality dating show that just might be the best thing on TV right now—if not in ever. In history. A delicious hybrid of Bachelor in Paradise, The Circle, 90 Day Fiancé and Dating in the Dark (yeah, remember that?), Love Is Blind has contestants talk to each other via individual pods, the goal being to get engaged and married to someone without ever having seen them.

Part of what makes Love Is Blind so good is the cast of characters. (Cameron and Lauren! Please be my parents!) Because you're definitely curious, we tracked down everything we could find about the cast of Love Is Blind, including their Instagram accounts and where they are now. And to watch the full Love Is Blind reunion show—and get the latest updates on your favorite couples—scroll down to the bottom of the post.

The Women

Jessica Batten, 34

Where she is now: In the finale of Love Is Blind, Jessica turned Mark down at the altar. When the episode aired, Jessica shared an Instagram post thanking fans for their support, and the behind-the-scenes production crew who made the show happen.

Lauren Speed, 32

Where she is now: While the show was airing, fans found evidence that Lauren and Cameron were still together...and it looks like they were right! The couple got married on the Love Is Blind finale.

Amber Pike, 26

Where she is now: She's blond! And also presumably (we hope?) still married to Barnett. The goofy couple defied expectations and tied the knot in the season finale.

Aly, 36

  • Nurse client relations director

Diamond Jack, 28

Where she is now: Diamond is working with the Charge Up Campaign, "a non-profit organization that supports, educate, empowers, and celebrates men, women, and youth who have fought against health, social, and economic concerns due to the impact of cancer," according to her Instagram.

On the Love Is Blind reunion show, we learned that Diamond is working toward her PhD. (And no, she and Carlton did not rekindle their romance.)

Giannina Gibelli, 25

Where she is now: Doing a lot of modeling—and not married to Damian. In the season finale, Giannina says "I do" to Damian—but he tells her he can't go through with the marriage. As we predicted, Giannina was the mystery bride who went running down the street in her wedding dress. But on the Love Is Blind reunion show, we learned that she and Damian are dating again!

Just sitting here, patiently waiting for #LoveIsBlind to air in less than 12 hours!😱!!! . Fun fact: I practiced the ketogenic ‘diet’ during some of the filming for the show because I knew the healthy fats would keep me satiated for longer and give my body the energy I needed for long days of filming. I legit cooked food on set to ensure I was fueling my metabolism as best as possible.👩🍳 . I hear way too many women complain about their weight with the comment “ugh, I’m just not gonna eat for a few days.” This comment makes me cringe. When you aren’t eating enough, your metabolism slows down. Well if you’re already not eating enough and then you starve yourself, for sure you may lose weight, but you’re also doing damage to your metabolism...which then can cause so many other issues: hormonal, thyroid, deficiencies, even a plateau in your weight.👎🏼 . So ladies, if this is you, if you’ve cut back on your food consumption lately bc you don’t like the way you look/feel right now, let’s take a look at what you’ve been eating and make appropriate adjustments from there. Don’t just cut calories or cut foods out without speaking with someone who can support you on your journey. . Honestly, I’d love to call it a “metabolism kickstart” program versus a “weightloss program” bc that’s essentially what we do- kickstart that metabolism! 🙌🏼 . . Food is fuel my friends. Eat your veggies. Eat fruit. Eat good quality proteins, healthy fats (plant based), and perhaps some grains here and there. In addition, audit your self care practices, stress levels surrounding your career and relationships, and daily movement. . Need some help? Shoot me a DM! I’m always happy to help you become a better you!💛 . . 📸: @marlayvonnecreative . . #chaselifewithkelly #chaselifetogether #health #healthcoach #healthylifestyle #eatclean #metabolism #foodisfuel #weightloss #transformation #nutrition #wellness #fitness #fitfam #exercise #movement #selflove #selfcare #confidence #keto #plantbased #veggies #greens #bodyimage #BecomeABetterYou

The Men

Andy Rickert

Where he is now: Andy may not have moved forward with an engagement on Love Is Blind, but the show did lead to him finding a relationship, albeit indirectly. In an Instagram post shortly after the show dropped on Netflix, Andy explained how he met his now-girlfriend, Kelsey, through fellow cast member Danielle Drouin. (Danielle brought Kelsey to a dinner with other Love Is Blind cast members, and the pair bonded over their love of eggs in ramen.)

"I might not have found love on a reality show, but a reality show did help me find love," he wrote in the caption. "Happy Valentines day babycakes."

As many of you now know, I was on a reality show called Love is Blind, which came out this week. I had been single long enough that I was willing to go on a reality tv show, and potentially get engaged to someone I had never met. If that gives you any grasp of how single I was. As many of you also know, or will know if you watch the show, I did not get engaged on that tv show. I was dejected afterwards, not only because I thought it was an awesome process to be apart of, but also because I was very much still single, and still lonely. I was ready to fully give up on actively trying to date for the foreseeable future. About 2 weeks after the show, the cast met for a dinner at a restaurant here in Atlanta. It was mostly cast members, but a few people brought friends to join in. The lovely Danielle Drouin, also recently having been recently "eliminated", for lack of a better word, from the show was one of those people that brought a friend. Her friend ordered vegetarian ramen for dinner, as did Danielle. When the food came, Danielle, being a vegan, offered her friend the egg that had come in her ramen. Randomly, and luckily, I commented on how that was the best part. "I love eggs" That was the first thing @kelseymarie333 ever said to me. I might not have found love on a reality show, but a reality show did help me find love. Happy Valentines day babycakes @netflix @kineticcontent @loveisblindnetflix #loveisblind #valentines #netflix #andyloveisblind
