We're all wondering who gets married in Love Is Blind season 3.
Engagement rings have been presented, families have been met and joint bachelor/bachelorette parties were celebrated, but unlike typical affairs, each milestone was met with hesitation. But hey, when you agree to marry someone you've never seen before—on reality TV, no less—what can you expect?
Despite maneuvering rocky terrain, five Love Is Blind season 3 couples emerged from the pods. Alexa and Brennon were smitten from the get-go and ready to exchange vows practically immediately. But the other pairs weren't quite as secure in their unions as these two. Matt and Colleen experienced a few hurdles, Raven and SK seemed like they didn't mesh well, Cole and Zanab were not on the same page and the flame cooled for Nancy and Bartise.
If one were to ask us if love is blind, as of right now we'd probably say no. The show's vets didn't seem to have a great success rate—we can count which Love Is Blind couples are still together, and our hearts are still broken over Kyle and Deepti. We'll admit, we're pretty skeptical.
In addition to wondering if in fact, love is blind, we are also curious about another myth: is the third time a charm for this unconventional reality dating show?
*WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD*
Who gets married in 'Love Is Blind' season 3?
If you have yet to watch episode 11 upon its release on November 9, proceed *VERY* cautiously.
After dramatic revelations, tears and some profanity, we finally have the fate of our season 3 couples. Unsurprisingly, Alexa and Brennon said "I do," as did Colleen and Matt, which truthfully, surprised us. When she took an interest in Cole post-pods, it seemed to cause some tension, but (hopefully) it's all resolved now that they're man and wife.
However, the question on everyone's minds: Does Bartise say yes in Love Is Blind? He did not, and the consequences were catastrophic—a very unhappy Rodriquez family. (Nancy did say yes.) Though tensions were high at the reunion for these two, they seemed to move on fairly gracefully on the wedding day itself...after Nancy's mom and brother got upset.
What wasn't graceful? Zanab and Cole's ceremony. When the two first get up to the altar, she claims that Cole "isn't hard to fall in love with," and talks about his charm and love of God. That was very short-lived.
"Cole, you have taught me so much about myself in the last two months," Zanab begins. "And you have shared so much of who you are, and I'm so thankful for that."
Then, things took a turn.
"You have disrespected me, you have insulted me, you have critiqued me. And for what it's worth, you have single-handedly shattered my self-confidence."
She concluded, "You are a good man, and I know that about you. I really do. I wish I could have had more of that, I really do."
While these two couples didn't part ways amicably—and they are arguably the most toxic pairs from the season—Raven and SK didn't commit to marriage, either. However, the couple is still going strong, even though they're long-distance right now.
"We’ve been working on it,” she revealed to US Weekly (opens in new tab) about their relationship. “And he’s just such a beautiful person, so we’ve been giving each other patience. It’s been great."
But let us tell you, if you thought the wedding ceremonies were dramatic, just wait until you catch the Love Is Blind season 3 reunion.
