Who will host Love is Blind season 5?
Nick and Vanessa Lachey have both been confirmed as hosts for the fifth season of Love is Blind, despite Vanessa facing backlash following her behaviour at the season 4 reunion.
Fans started an online petition for new hosts which gained over 45,000 signatures. Titled, “Remove Nick and Vanessa Lachey as the Hosts of Love is Blind” it stated that the season 4 reunion “felt very forced, rehearsed and ingenuine regardless of any editing that they did. The hosts showed bias towards certain contestants which felt like an obvious manipulation of the viewer to dislike certain contestants”.
The backlash was specifically targeted at Vanessa’s treatment of Marshall and interview with Jackie, following their dramatic season 4 split which saw Jackie skip her bridal fitting, call off their engagement and start dating Josh.
The married couple have hosted the series since it first debuted on Netflix in 2020. There had been growing speculation that the hosts could be replaced by Love is Blind season 1 couple Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton. However it was revealed that filming for season 5 was already underway when the reunion aired.
Speaking to Women’s Health just before season 4 aired, Nick revealed: “We’ve filmed five seasons”. Adding: “Every single one has been so different from the others, so that’s what makes it interesting, what makes it intriguing for us allows us to approach every single season with a fresh attitude and fresh perspective.”
