Nick and Vanessa Lachey have major competition in Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton. 

Even if you know nothing about the pod squad, you're aware that Lauren and Cameron are the shining stars of Love Is Blind. Against all odds, the season 1 couple fell in love before first sight and are still going strong four years later, so much so that fans are petitioning for them to host the series. 

After the disastrous Love Is Blind season 4 reunion—massive tech glitches, invasive questions, apparent partiality—fans have become a little fed up with the Lacheys. But will this frustration lead to host changes? Here's what we know. 

Are Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton going to host 'Love Is Blind'?

A now-viral petition has been making the rounds and reached nearly 43,000 signatures at the time of publication. The purpose? "Remove Nick and Vanessa Lachey as the Hosts of Love is Blind."

Part of the petition reads: "Neither Nick or Vanessa make any effort to guide the cast through a confusing and emotional experience and blatantly attempt to stir up drama and leave." 

There's been plenty of talk about bringing back Lauren and Cameron, but according to a leaked report from The Daily Mail on Tuesday, April 25, this is actually a plan that's being seriously considered. 

When the news broke, the couple didn't address the claims, but according to a selfie on Instagram Stories, they're "making big moves." This definitely made fans suspicious, but judging from the emoji usage—a building and a key—we take it this means they're settling into a new home. 

Psst: if you're looking to catch up with the fan-favorite couple, snag a copy of their memoir, Leap of Faith: Finding Love the Modern Way (available on Amazon). 

Given that the down-to-earth pair feels relatable to viewers and has had experience with this unique dating experiment, fans have given this move a thumbs up.

However, there is plenty more to address on the show than just the hosts: Love Is Blind lawsuits and allegations arose following the finale of season 4, claiming that the contestants were mistreated, overworked, underpaid and emotionally exploited. Though the production company has denied the rumors, it definitely seems like there needs to be a few changes to the popular Netflix series.
