Why did fans want Nick and Vanessa Lachey to be removed from Love is Blind? Learn all there is to know about the situation.
If you watched the drama that unfolded during Love Is Blind season 4 reunion, you might be wondering if celebrity couple Nick and Vanessa Lachey are leaving Love Is Blind.
Courtesy of a recent fan petition to have the couple removed as co-hosts of Love Is Blind, there is doubt over whether the Lacheys will keep their jobs on the hit Netflix series.
Following the season 4 reunion special, which was filled with controversial moments, drama and was plagued by technical issues, the Change.org petition to have the Lacheys removed received a surge in signatures, more than 40,000. Vanessa was criticized for hyper-focusing on when the contestants planned to have babies, individually questioning each couple about when they planned to become parents.
Will Nick and Vanessa Lachey leave Love is Blind?
As of now, Nick and Vanessa Lachey look unlikely to leave Love is Blind.
A source who works on the show told about the plans to oust the current hosts Nick and Vanessa Lachey. “There have always been whispers about replacing them, especially now after the live reunion special, which was a complete disaster on so many levels,” the source said. “If they want to keep their ratings up, there’s got to be a change.”
As for who will be replacing them, a fan-favorite couple from season 1, Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton are in the run to replace Vanessa and Nick. “Viewers feel a connection with Lauren and Cameron because they are the real deal,” the source said. “They are down-to-earth, kind people who can actually help the contestants because they have walked in their shoes. People want to relate to the hosts — and at this point, they can’t relate to Vanessa or Nick.”
