Netflix’s famous dating show Love Is Blind has only produced two long-lasting romances to date—season 1’s Cameron and Lauren Hamilton, and Matt Barnett and Amber Pike—nevertheless, the reality series is back for a third season with more singles hoping to find love.
As usual, a group of men and women are thrown into “pods,” where they can “date” several people without ever seeing what they look like. The aim of the game is to get engaged to someone based solely on the emotional connection formed during these blind dates. Once betrothed, some of the lucky couples are whisked away on vacation with hosts Nick and Vanessa Lachey, and they’re forced to find out whether their romance will work in the real world.
Here’s what you need to know about all of the lucky singletons joining Love Is Blind season 3.

An insurance agency owner, 27-year-old Alexa Alfia is unapologetic about who she is, which quickly makes her a fan favorite on Love Is Blind‘s third season.

Amanda Peterson is a 31-year-old stylist who’s ready to find love. Amanda told Tudum that she’s “terrible at communicating,” so it must be pretty scary taking part in the Love Is Blind experiment, which relies almost exclusively on talking. With a penchant for picking “the wrong guys,” Amanda is hoping to find her person in one of the pods.
Raven Ross isn’t about to stop working out just because she’s on Love Is Blind. The 29-year-old can be seen exercising during several pod dates, which is unsurprising considering she’s both a Barre instructor and a Pilates Master Trainer. As she revealed to Tudum, Raven views Barack and Michelle Obama’s relationship in high esteem, just like the rest of us.
Chiropractor Ashley Randermann believes that “good things come to those who wait.” In fact, the 29-year-old Texan, who is a keen equestrian, told Tudum, “I have a big heart and I know I deserve the same.” A Master of Neuroscience, Ashley calls herself a “Concierge Chiropractor of Humans & Animals,” who refuses to “settle” until she’s found her person.
Chelsey Jordan definitely has the right attitude when it comes to the Love Is Blind experience. “I believe in going after what I want in life,” she explained, “and if that means finding love in a box, then I’m willing to do it!” The 27-year-old is a customer success manager who loves the outdoors, and is looking for a partner with a sense of “silly,” per Tudum.
A medical device sales rep, Tony Taylor revealed to Tudum that he is looking for his “teammate.” The 34-year-old’s longest relationship to date lasted for a decade, and he describes himself as “open, accepting, and loving.” Sadly, his Instagram account is currently private, but viewers can follow his dating journey on the third season of Love Is Blind.
Water treatment engineer slash sales coach and entrepreneur, Brennon Lemieux certainly makes an impact on the ladies during his time in the pods. As he told Tudum, Brennon is a big fan of “alpha women” who can “take charge” of any situation. Describing himself, Brennon revealed that he has a “strong personality,” revealing that he’s not afraid to speak his mind.
Aerospace engineer Dakota Easley wants a relationship as strong as the one his parents have, and they have been married for 40 years. The 32-year-old told Tudum that he has a “welcoming personality,” and alongside his day job, he founded home decor business Invicta Luxus. Perhaps most importantly, Dakota is “looking for someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously.”
A dermatologist by trade, Valerie Truong “loves baking, hiking, surfing and writing songs,” per Tudum. The 35-year-old also revealed that her biggest pet peeve is “lack of accountability.” As a singer and songwriter, Valerie performs with a band called LemonTech. When she’s not looking for love on a Netflix show, Valerie can be found hanging out with her cute pups.
As a professional ballet dancer, 26-year-old Colleen Reed immediately hooks the attention of several prospective love interests on the show. Alongside ballet, Colleen is a digital PR strategist. “I’m a firm believer that you will get an instant feeling when meeting ‘the one’ and I haven’t felt that yet,” she revealed. According to Tudum, Colleen is pretty sure that her perfect match is in one of the pods this season.
DaVonté Black is a fitness development coach who “works out too much,” per Tudum. Will Smith’s relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith is his inspiration. “If I have a specific type, it’s women I can identify as bold, strong, independent, fitness-loving, and intellectual,” he revealed.
Real estate investor Nancy Rodriguez wants to find a partner who’s ready to “settle down,” per Tudum. The 32-year-old’s longest relationship to date was eight years, and she hopes to find a “spontaneous” guy that loves to travel.

Attorney Anthony LaScalea signed up for Love Is Blind to try “something different,” and eliminate all of the real world distractions that can get in the way of dating, per Tudum. The 33-year-old is a big fan of chocolate chip cookies, and he can regularly be found snuggling with his adorable dog.
Discussing why she’s still single, Kalekia Adams revealed, “I invest in guys who are undeserving and overlook red flags.” (We’ve all been there.) The 31-year-old ICU nurse practitioner has been dedicated to grad school and often finds herself working night shifts, meaning that she hasn’t had all that much time to find love just yet. According to Tudum, she’s ready to find a partner who is “kind, sincere and able to communicate.”
Zanab Jaffrey is “picky AF” when it comes to dating, but she’s ready to find her forever partner, per Tudum. The 32-year-old realtor describes herself as a “globetrotter,” and revealed that she’s “looking for someone who’s loyal, supportive and all in.” Alongside those crucial qualities, Zanab apparently hopes to find someone who smells nice and is taller than her, both of which are kind of unknowable from inside the pods, sadly.
Dale Dalida is a Navy Veteran, who’s passionate about mobile gaming and fitness. According to Dale, “The hallmark of a good relationship is 3am conversations.” In fact, the 32-year-old cybersecurity student believes that “good conversations” are the key to a great romance, but they’re unfortunately “hard to come by” right now.
The key to Andrew’s heart is “constant snuggles,” he told Tudum. The wildlife photographer and director of operations makes quite a stir in the pods, on account of his honesty. And when it comes to relationships, Andrew is looking for someone who is able to solve their own problems, rather than constantly looking to other people for answers.
Teacher and coach Kim Clarke “changes her mind a lot,” per Tudum. But that’s not going to stop the 30-year-old from looking for romance in the pods. “I believe I can build a lasting love, rather than another superficial relationship,” she revealed. She’s not a fan of poor communication, and is ready to find a partner she can relax with while watching a game.
“If someone doesn’t know what they want or doesn’t voice their intentions, it drives me crazy,” Jess Gumbert explained. The 30-year-old senior event producer “wants someone who’s down-to-earth and can make her laugh,” according to Tudum, and values friendship and compromise in any relationship.
Julian Torres is pretty adamant that he won’t be with anyone who “isn’t well-read,” he told Tudum. The 34-year-old is a managing director of operations, who loves eating out and playing sand volleyball, when he isn’t reading, obviously. He also “loves women with a magnetic personality, not because they attention-seek, but rather because they’re naturally charming and nice.”
Makeup artist Charita Scott is looking for a man “who’s funny, smart and communicative,” according to Tudum. The 35-year-old is sick of getting stuck in “situationships” with “emotionally unavailable” partners. When she’s not busy working, Charita is a big fan of cooking from scratch.
The class clown of the group, Cole Barnett brings a slew of hilarious one-liners to Love Is Blind. The 27-year-old realtor is ready to “bring entertainment” to any relationship, but he’s also hoping to foster a deep connection with someone “who lives in faith with God,” per Tudum. According to Cole, his biggest pet peeve is a bad driver, and he doesn’t want to be with anyone that wants him to “tone it down.” You’ve been warned!
Zach Gordon is an interior quality control manager who’s also been training at medical school. As for what he’s looking for in a partner, Zach explained, “The key to my heart is genuine commitment, and my stomach. I love food.” However, Zach has been single for the last four years, on account of his “high standards.” Can the pods change that?
A director of marketing technology, Simmer Bajwa revealed, “I’m still single because I haven’t put myself out there enough.” The 27-year-old is very ambitious, and is looking for someone to build an empire with, according to Tudum. When it comes to the Love Is Blind experiment, Simmer is open-minded; he doesn’t have a particular type.
Loren Langeneck is a huge fan of loud music, hiking, yoga, and traveling. The 36-year-old is a medical device representative, who explained, “The key to my heart is adventure… and pancakes.” As for romance, Loren is hoping to find someone that values vulnerability as much as she does.
A private charter sales executive, Matt Bolton describes himself as a morning person, via Tudum. Matt also revealed that he’s looking “for someone to break down my walls and allow me to open back up.” The 28-year-old is a fan of golf and working out, and he has a pretty cute partner in crime (clue: it’s a dog).
SK Alagbada “enjoys the finer things in life” and is looking for a “boss lady,” he told Tudum. The 34-year-old data engineer is also “excited to fall in love with his partner’s mind before their appearance.” The Berkeley Haas MBA student moved from Nigeria to Poland on his own when he was 19, but revealed that appearing on Love Is Blind was “the craziest, most out-of-place thing [he’s] ever done.”
Brannigan Maxwell loves everything from cake decorating to axe throwing, so any potential love interest needs to “buckle up,” she tells Tudum. The 35-year critical care nurse is over “f-boys,” and wants to “settle down with someone who isn’t intimidated by her accomplishments and success.” She also revealed, “I know my worth and what I deserve.”
Senior analyst Bartise Bowden loves to laugh and wants to meet someone just as funny as he is, according to Tudum. The 27-year-old also explained, “My grandma and mom say I just haven’t met a girl as cool as them, but my friends say I’m too picky.” A big fan of working out, Bartise is about to start some drama in the pods.
Nash Buehler is ready to find his “equal partner,” he said to Tudum. As for what else he’s looking for, Nash explained, “The key to my heart is warm apple pie.” He describes himself as a trivia nerd, a terrible golfer, and a fan of sand volleyball.
