'Love is Blind' hit Netflix in 2020, a new twist on finding love by doing so with absolutely no physical interaction. Contestants on the show lived in their own rooms and 'speed dated' other contestants through the walls. They could get to know each other, flirt, communicate, but had no idea what the other looked like. Couples never met until after they were already engaged, a concept that confused a lot of people until they started watching the show.

During Season 1, a revelation about one cast members sexuality led to a blow up fight, ending an engagement before it really had begun. Although it wasn't necessarily the fact that the character was bisexual that drew his fiancé away, more the fact that he chose not to disclose it before the engagement, producers of the show have said they will be asking all the details- and I mean all the details- before the contestants can even start going on dates.

The casting questionnaire includes several personal questions, including if they consider themselves straight, gay, bisexual or other, says TMZ This way there can't be any surprises after a ring has already been placed on a finger!

Other questions are standard ones, including age, hair color, eye color, ethnicity, hobbies, jobs and dating status. They are also asked about deal-breakers, including religion, ethnicity and other cultural differences. Potential cast members are also asked about cigarette and alcohol use, designed physical traits and descriptions of their dating history.

Spoiler Alert!

Season 1 started with an array of contestants, but eventually focused on just six couples that had coupled up during the process. Spoiler alert: two of them ended up getting married, two ended up breaking up at the altar and one broke up merely a day after getting engaged. Diamond Jack and Carlton Morton were engaged and living in Mexico bliss for a whole 24 hours when Morton surprised Jack by revealing he is bisexual. The two broke up before they were able to go back home to their lives in Atlanta. The decision to ask potential castmembers about their sexuality during the casting process could keep an explosive break-up like Jack and Morton's from happening again.

While Season 1 focused on residents of Atlanta, Season 2 will be filmed in Chicago. Both 'Love is Blind' and its sister 'The Circle', Netflix's other 2020 breakout show where contestants aren't allowed to interact with each other, have been renewed for two more seasons on the network.

"It's been incredible to see Netflix members everywhere respond to the raw, authentic stories of real people and real stakes," Brandon Riegg, vp nonfiction and comedy specials at Netflix, said in a statement.
