People Are Already Addicted To 'Binge-Worthy' New Dating Show 'Love Is Blind'
Here at Tyla, we're a sucker for a good dating show. So, when we spotted that the makers of Married At First Sight had brought out a new series, we were all ears.
Love Is Blind launched on Netflix last night, and just hours after it hit on the streaming site, people were already gushing that it is addictive AF.
The new series follows a group of singles hoping to find somebody who loves them for their personality alone.
However, the catch is that the couples don't meet while getting to know each other, and instead speak from separate pods, only coming face-to-face for the first time moments after one pops the question.
We mean, what's not to like?!
Taking to social media to give their verdict on the show, one person wrote: "#LoveIsBlind is addictive. It's like #MarriedAtFirstSight but better."
While another joked: "I told myself I'd stop watching trash reality tv but here I am.. just binge watching the entire #LoveIsBlind show. Help".
A third concurred: "So far Netflix is 2 for 2 with these reality shows. First #TheCircle now #LoveIsBlind ????? Binge worthy".

The programme doesn't just show the contestants dating. It also follows their relationships after getting engaged, tackling the real world and planning their upcoming weddings.
But will a physical attraction blossom before the big day?
The 10-episode series is hosted by Nick Lachey (of 98 Degrees and Newly Weds fame) and his wife, Vanessa - who have been married for nine years and together for 14.
And it explores how important age and looks are in the quest for love, as well as whether strong bonds can be made purely through conversation.
Sharing obvious similarities with its predecessor Married at First Sight, there is no doubt that a whole hoard more fans will soon be flocking to watch the show, too.
Married At First Sight - which saw singletons agree to go up the aisle with partners selected for them by dating experts - gave us some bum-clenchingly awkward TV moments.
There was Carly and Troy's shock romance, Tracy 'sexting' Dean, and Dean Wells' affair with Instagram model Davina Rankin, to name a few.
As for the inevitable shockers Love Is Blind will have in store? You'll have to watch it to find out!
