Netflix dating show "Love Is Blind" now casting in Minneapolis and St. Paul
Why it matters: Twin Cities residents can find out if love is truly blind.
How it works: A group of 15 men and 15 women, all from the same metro area, are put into separate "pods" where they can talk to — but not see — their date. The goal is to fall in love and get engaged without ever knowing what the other looks like.
- Then, the engaged couple meets in person, goes on a trip with the other couples and moves to an apartment in the city they live in for four weeks.
- At the end, the couple will get married or reject each other at the altar.
Of note: Though "Love Is Blind" reportedly pays contestants around $1,000/week, couples who get married don't receive any prize (other than love).
What to know: The 78-question application includes questions like “Why are you a catch?” and “What are your thoughts on the dating scene in your city?”
- Applicants must also submit all their social media handles.
Reality check: Three completed seasons of the show are out now, and only four of the 17 engaged couples are still together.
