The 27-year-old marketing manager and 28-year-old environmental scientist got engaged on the most recent season of Netflix's top-rated reality dating show but could not sustain their relationship; the former couple was the only duo standing who did not get married. Countless elements seemed to get in the way of the couple's success; Lussier's closest friend disapproved of their union, Lussier's relationship with Kwame Appiah, she also sustained in the pods, was frequently mentioned throughout the season, and Lussier's pod best friend Irina Solomonova admitted to crushing on Peden.

Since the season finale and live reunion have been released, Lussier and Peden have publicly addressed their relationship in the media. Peden recently spoke to TMZ about their post-show effort to give their relationship another chance. Lussier appeared on an episode of "The Viall Files" last week to discuss their relationship with former 'Bachelor' Nick Viall.

A week later, Lussier posted an Instagram reel featuring many intimate black-and-white clips that the duo reportedly shot after filming wrapped. Her ex-fiancé commented on the post, mysteriously teasing fans about the state of their relationship status!

What Did Lussier Have To Say On 'The Viall Files?'

Lussier shared her side of their relationship story on "The Viall Files." Her castmate Marshall Glaze recently did the same; Glaze's relationship with Jackie Bonds fell apart before the duo reached their wedding day.

The Blast was on hand to share Lussier's insight. Fans took to Lussier's Instagram reel promoting her appearance.

"I don't like how Micah's always so quick to blame Paul. Paul said Micah wasn't nurturing, which also shows there was no reassurance on HER end," one of Lussier's followers weighed in. "she's so quick to blame everyone else. Still, I think she needs to reevaluate herself and take responsibility that she also didn't reassure Paul."

"I thought the stunt she pulled with Kwame in Mexico was intentionally meant to cause problems, assert herself to try and show he still wants her; she needed that drama and was not making a comment as a joke that went poorly," another follower shared. "That's a huge cop-out. I agree with Chelsea that it did not need to carry on the way it did. I admire Chelsea's ability to rise above it and carry herself so well; let's face it, ladies, most of us would not have an easy time with how that went down!"

Lussier also spoke of when Peden allegedly touched one of Lussier's bridesmaid's backsides. Peden emphatically denied the rumors during the reunion. She defended her friend, saying, "I honestly don't think there were [any] bad intentions from her; honestly, if I'm being real, I don't think there was from Paul either," she explained.

"Paul's being weird now," she added. "Now that you talk about it, I'm starting to get pi**ed. I will call him after this and ask, 'What's your deal?' she joked. "I was giving him the benefit of the doubt, but now hearing it from a guy's perspective, I'm like...,' referring to Viall's take on the moment. He called Peden's actions "b***s**t."

Are Lussier And Peden Thinking About A Reconciliation?

It's worth noting that Lussier seemed to allude to their open-ended relationship status at the end of her "Viall Files" interview.

"Paul and I, until I saw the finale, were on excellent terms," she said. "We had met up recently. I wouldn't say we discussed getting back together, but it was very emotional. There was some hand holding, there was definitely [a feeling of] there are still feelings here. Maybe that's why everyone was still on good terms. They knew there were still some feelings in my heart," she said.

Lussier's latest IG post seems to confirm these 'good terms.' She writes in the caption, "Paul, I'll always be so thankful you came into my life. We shared something so special & no one will ever be able to replace that. No matter what, I'll always love you..." she shares.

Peden commented, "My love for you isn't going anywhere. Maybe we're together, maybe we're not, but regardless, we'll still have that no matter what," he wrote.

Will they or won't they? Could we be seeing a "Love Is Blind" reunion of a different kind?
