Well a new season of Love is blind It’s upon us, and you know what that means…
More odd couples rushing into ill-fated romances just because the cameras are rolling!
Yes, every year we receive at least a couple who shouldn’t even share an elevator, let alone get married.
Last season, we had two such pairings, with Danielle Ruhl and Nick Thompson offering almost as much discomfort as Shake Chatterjee and Deepti Vempati.
This season we have Cole Barnett and Zanab Jaffrey.
And while Cole might not be as despised as Shake, the man certainly isn’t a fan favorite either.
(And as the clip below reminds us, he engaged in very Shake-like behavior during filming.)
Appropriately enough, Zanab seemed blinded by love in her early conversations with Cole, and it wasn’t long before she fell head over heels for her fellow realtor.
But once the pod stage was over, Zanab and Cole seemed to go through one rough patch after another.
Like so many other couples on this show, Cole and Zanab were drawn together by their shared religious faith, but shortly after spending the night together for the first time, they found themselves embroiled in an unholy war.
These two argued about the difference between “good” and “great”, and in one of the grossest moments in LiB’s history (which really says something), Cole told Zanab that he thought the dancer Colleen was more attractive.
Come to think of it, maybe this guy it is as bad as Shake.
The reaction from fans has been so bad that Cole has already issued an apology on Instagram.
“It is very difficult to see us fight in Malibu, and if I could change the mistakes and those moments, I would,” he wrote this week.
“We had ups and downs, these are some of the moments that I will never forget.”
So did Zanab make the mistake of her life and agree to marry Cole?
Well…it looks like the producers of LiB have gotten better at keeping secrets, which means we won’t know until the season finale airs on November 9th.
What Glamor points out, if Cole and Zanab made broke up, at least they’ve remained friends: they’ve both liked each other’s posts non-stop.
Otherwise, Zanab has kept the entire business on IG, promoting the show without giving anything away:
“Nothing says wife season better than sitting on a couch opening your heart! The sweet messages and comments I have received this week are so lovely!” she captioned the photo above.
“I can’t answer everyone, but please know I’ve seen you and appreciate you SO MUCH! Sending all the positivity and love back to you all. xx The first four episodes of @loveisblindnetflix are now airing!”
Damn those iron-clad NDAs!
We guess we’ll have to wait another week to see what happens with these two.
We hope for the sake of both that they go their separate ways!
