Netflix’s Love Is Blind is certainly a new twist on the classic dating show formula, which has us wondering if any of the couples are still together postfilming. The new series, hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, has contestants start their relationships without being able to meet in person — and they can’t meet until they get engaged. But the engagement is just the start: the show then follows them as they try to figure out their relationships in the real world, integrate their families and lives, and head toward a wedding. Sound difficult? It definitely has produced tons of drama on screen, with plenty of intense breakups. Now that the season is wrapped up with a reunion episode available, we know which couples are still together after the show. Keep reading to learn who has — and hasn’t — made it. View On One Page.

Sima Taparia is like a human Hinge algorithm. Card system, except instead of dueling, the players must get drinks with one another. Like all good bad reality dating shows such as recent Netflix hits Love Is Blind and Too Hot To Handle , the dates are largely cringey to watch, and there is ghosting, awkwardness, and family drama. Oh my! But the show has been met with equal parts fascination and criticism. While Indian Matchmaking carefully and successfully swats away stigmas that surround the concept of arranged marriage—that marriages are forced, or that individuals lack the freedom to make their own decisions— critics have highlighted that the show reinforces heteronormativity, divisions between social classes, and discrimination based on skin color, ethnicity, and status.
And while the series mostly opts to steer clear of those conversations, our concern for the mostly likable, relatable cast on their search for love runs deep.
And the Most Successful Reality TV Dating Show Is…
The streaming service’s latest dating docuseries, Indian Matchmaking , however, takes a completely different turn away from testing out social experiments to creating lifelong relationships. The show follows matchmaker Sima Taparia as she helps South Asian singles and their families navigate love with the help of face readers, astrologers, and life coaches. Series creator Smriti Mundhra said that the show originally reached out to all of Taparia’s clients to see who would be interested in filming their experience, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Twelve people initially agreed, but after six months of filming, only eight participants made the final cut.

Big Brother has never been billed as a dating show, but the sheer number of long term relationships that have come out of the show makes its success in that area undeniable. With Big Brother All-Stars underway it’s hard not to notice just how many of the cast are in relationships with people they met playing the game. This season has Tyler Crispen and Bayleigh Dayton who are both from the same season and still in long term relationships with their Big Brother showmances.
Tyler is not only living with and in a relationship with his girlfriend Angela Rummans but they have bought a home together and started a business together. Bayleigh ended her season engaged to and has since married her costar Chris “Swaggy” Williams. Nicole Franzel took a break from planning her wedding to fellow houseguest Victor Arroyo to play this season.
What is it about Big Brother that allows it to succeed in matchmaking when all the shows with that goal in mind seem to fail? On The Bachelor or its sister series The Bachelorette , you have a large group of singles competing for a relationship with one person. They must compete for the attention of, dates with, and time alone with the star who lives somewhere separate from the group of competing singles.
Aside from the fact that Big Brother films for roughly twice as long as a Bachelor season, there are no breaks. Many guests have joked that the sheer volume of time they spend together makes dating for a week in the Big Brother house comparable to months in the real world.
