Sure, love is blind, but weddings are an eyes-open affair. From the planning to the paying, it’s enough to strain any couple, especially those who got quickie-engaged on a reality show.
For Alexa Alfia and Brennon Lemieux on Love Is Blind, sparks flew immediately, and their dynamic was super shy, flirty, and cute. She was a confident, Israeli woman; he, a Southern gentleman. We absolutely loved Alexa’s body confidence and pride about her Jewish faith, and we loved even more that Brennon was into all she had to offer. But an easy first meeting doesn’t necessarily mean true love. SPOILERS AHEAD. Awaiting the finale, we couldn’t help ourselves. We had to pop online to figure out if Alexa and Brennon are still together. And here’s what we found….
Who are they?
Alexa Alfia is a 27-year-old insurance agent from a big Israeli family. She found her faith unexpectedly highlighted when new episodes dropped amid a wave of renewed conversation over antisemitism, and responded online with dignity and grace, writing, “When I signed up for this experience, I was skeptical but hopeful for love. And now that it’s being released for the world to see, I thought that love would be the only thing people focused on. When I made comments about how proud I am to be Jewish, I wasn’t trying to make a statement or take a stance, I was just being me and expressing who I am. I’ve always been proud to be Jewish and proud of where I come from. Reading all of the comments and dms from people thanking me for being proud of being Jewish honestly took me by surprise. It absolutely breaks my heart to know that people feel ashamed to proudly be who they are at the risk of facing backlash. It’s incredible the timing of this being released during a time where antisemitism is rearing its ugly head once again. I will always stand with the Jewish community. Sending love to all.”
Brennon Lemieux is a 32-year-old water treatment engineer with a heart of gold and a penchant for a lyric-y Instagram caption. Seems like he kinda wants to be a cowboy, no?
What went down on the show?
These two were first out of the pods, and felt an immediate IRL connection. Reflecting on the experience, Brennon wrote, “This was such an out of body experience! I can’t describe the whirlwind of emotions and anticipation before the doors opened that day. I had no idea what she looked like, but to me she was going to be the most beautiful woman.”
They seemed to have the fewest arguments and quickly became Love Is Blind fan favorites. But when Brennon met Alexa’s father, he seemed doubtful that Brennon could give his daughter the same affluent lifestyle she’d grown up with. Still, he liked Brennon as a person and approved of the relationship, even joking that he’d circumcise Brennon himself.
Did they get married?
Yes! In the finale, which was filmed in June 2021, the couple both said “I do.”
But are they still together?
As of October 25, they didn’t follow each other on Instagram, and their posts about the show were vague, though positive, highlighting “support” from fans and the incredible experience they had…but not really any mention of a true and lasting love with a partner. They also didn’t tag each other in any pictures. On the other hand, Women’s Health found Venmo interactions that point to Alexa having a bachelorette party. Very sneaky, you two.
We got our answer during the reunion episode: They’ve remained married. “I’ve never been loved in the way that he loves me,” Alexa said. Alexa also confirmed during the reunion that she’s not pregnant…yet.
