Warning: The following post contains spoilers for Netflix's Love Is Blind.

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably binge-watched Netflix’s dating show Love Is Blind, plus its reunion (maybe even more than once). Honestly, it’s been too long since we first saw our favorite TV singles have their no-face first dates and fall in love. Fans are eager for any news on the couples, and when there’ll be a true season 2.

Recently, Netflix gave dedicated fans a three-part special update on the season 1 couples, dubbed Love Is Blind: After the Altar. For anyone looking for juicy new details about where everyone is now, you’re in the right place. After numerous breakups, and a few continued engagements, it’s time to see who made their love last (looking at you Lauren and Cameron!), and who decided to call it quits. Scroll down to see where all the Love Is Blind contestants are now.

The Women

Kelly Chase, 33

Where she is now: Not married to Kenny! In the season finale, she decided she didn't want to get married because she didn't feel an overwhelming attraction to him.

Since the show, she's started hosting a podcast and posting lots of exercise pics. Kelly hashed out remaining details about her whirlwind romance with Kenny in the Love Is Blind: After the Altar special.

Diamond Jack, 28

Where she is now: Diamond is currently CEO of a jewelry and accessories line called The Lady Box. No matter how far she's come, she still reps her the Atlanta Hawks and their dancers. She recently shared throwback pictures from when she danced for the team.

On the Love Is Blind reunion show, we learned that Diamond is working toward her PhD. (And no, she and Carlton did not rekindle their romance.) In Love Is Blind: After the Altar, Diamond reunited with the rest of the Pod Squad, and she once again revisits her heated breakup with Carlton.

Maybe we'll find out if she's got a new beau?

Giannina Gibelli, 25

Where she is now: Doing a lot of modeling—and not married to Damian. In the season finale, Giannina says "I do" to Damian—but he tells her he can't go through with the marriage. As we predicted, Giannina was the mystery bride who went running down the street in her wedding dress. But on the Love Is Blind reunion show, we learned that she and Damian had started dating again.

Since the reunion, Giannina hasn't posted on Instagram about Damian...at all. In Love Is Blind: After the Altar, viewers see a surprise: Damian doesn't bring her as a date to the special. The details behind their on, then off, then on again romance are revealed.

Lauren Chamblin, 26

Where she is now: According to Lauren's Instagram, she's been enjoying the single life. The Pod Squad is reunited in the upcoming Love Is Blind: After the Altar though, where she was thrown back into the reality dating drama, notably trying to help Carlton work through his unresolved tension with Diamond.

Jessica Batten, 34

Where she is now: In the finale of Love Is Blind, Jessica turned Mark down at the altar. When the episode aired, Jessica shared an Instagram post thanking fans for their support, and the behind-the-scenes production crew who made the show happen.

Since then, her social media also shows she's in a new relationship and very happy. She also showed up in the recent Love Is Blind: After the Altar special.

Lauren Speed, 33

Where she is now: While the show was airing, fans found evidence that Lauren and Cameron were still together...and it looks like they were right! The couple got married on the Love Is Blind finale.

Lauren and Cameron recently made a final appearance in the Love Is Blind: After the Altar three-part special.

Amber Pike, 27

Where she is now: She's still married to Barnett! The goofy couple defied expectations and tied the knot in the season finale.

Since the show, Amber and Barnett have been enjoying life, kayaking and prepping up for the just-released Love Is Blind: After the Altar special. They even met up with couple Lauren and Cameron for a recent trip to Universal Studios Hollywood.

Aly Costa, 36

Where she is now: Since the show, Aly seems to have found love outside of the show, and is living her best Love Is Blind-free life. Good for her!

Kay Nicole, 30

Lexie Skipper, 26

Ebony Alexis, 30

Where is she now: Ebony is busy running working as a media journalist and make up artist according to her Instagram bio. Although she wasn't in one of the endgame couples of the first season, it looks like co-stars Lauren and Diamond still keep tabs on their girl, and commented on her recent Instagram post.

Danielle Drouin

Briana Holmes

Lillie Mae

Where she is now: Still hanging out with the Love Is Blind squad! But mostly she's been running her own PR company and making a name for herself outside of the show.

The Men

Kenny Barnes, 27

Where he is now: Not married to Kelly. On the Love Is Blind reunion show, we found out he's dating someone new. In fact, they just celebrated two years since they first met! Kenny is also now affiliated with Brawl for a Cause. He revisits his romance with Kelly on the new special Love Is Blind: After the Altar.

Carlton Morton, 34

Where he is now: Carlton and Diamond were thought to have cleared the air since their engagement ended in a fiery explosion. But it appears he's not over the breakup yet.

Since the original show, Carlton met Love Is Blind fans and appeared on Love Is Blind: After the Altar. According to his recent Instagram post promoting the special...he's still not cool with Diamond.

Mark Anthony Cuevas, 24

Where he is now: Not married to Jessica, who turned him down at the altar in the season finale. In fact, he's a father! Mark's son Ace Anthony Cuevas is now 2 months old and very cute. Congrats, Mark.

Read our interview with Mark, where he reveals how feels about Jessica now.

Cameron Hamilton, 28

Where he is now: Married to Lauren, his soulmate. We're so happy for them. They celebrated their anniversary in the Love Is Blind: After the Altar special. Adorable!

Damian Powers, 27

Where he is now: Not married to Giannina. According to his Instagram, Damian is now affiliated with Brawl for a Cause, the organization directed by his Love Is Blind castmate, Matt Thomas.

Although the two stated they were dating in the reunion show, Damian hasn't been posting Giannina lately on his Instagram. Could the pair be finally going their separate ways? In the new Love Is Blind: After the Altar special, he shows up with a surprise date: Francesca from Too Hot to Handle. Suffice it to say, no one takes it well.

Matt Barnett, 27

Where he is now: Married to Amber, and maybe helping her pay off her make-up debt Barnett recently changed his Instagram handle from @mrflex13 to @barnettisblind, so dude seems to be going all-in on that Love Is Blind branding.

He appeared in the new Love Is Blind: After the Altar. With Amber of course.

Andy Rickert

Where he is now: Andy may not have moved forward with an engagement on Love Is Blind, but the show did lead to him finding a relationship, albeit indirectly. In an Instagram post shortly after the show dropped on Netflix, Andy explained how he met his now-girlfriend, Kelsey, through fellow cast member Danielle Drouin. (Danielle brought Kelsey to a dinner with other Love Is Blind cast members, and the pair bonded over their love of eggs in ramen.)

"I might not have found love on a reality show, but a reality show did help me find love," he wrote in the caption. "Happy Valentines day babycakes."

As of 2021, Andy has gotten really into working out and hiking, and of course, posting on Instagram all about his cat.

Where he is now: Rory is busy streaming games on Twitch and promoting Love Is Blind Season 2 casting calls. Although it wasn't covered in the show, People reported Rory and Danielle got engaged, then promptly split after the two took a weeklong trip to Miami. If his social media is anything to go by, it doesn't look like Rory has entered a new relationship just yet.
