Kelly Chase Love Is Blind Journey In A Nutshell
Like many of the contestants, Kelly Chase agreed to participate on Netflix's Love Is Blind, to find her potent soulmate through blinds dates. And, after communications with several men through the walls of pods, Chase clicked with the sweet Kenny Barnes, a North Carolina based entrepreneur.
As a matter of fact, the two became engaged without ever seeing each other in person. Their relationship, in fact, was only formed on the base of their emotional connection. Not to mention, their whirlwind romance was one of the most admired ones by the viewers, till the last episode, to say the least.
But, the ending and the final episode that showcased Kelly's decision at the altar changed everything, especially the impression Kelly and Kenny had on their fans. Long story short, the fitness pro rejected Kenny on their wedding day in front of his family and friends. She made it obvious that she didn't want to marry Barnes and then left the altar leaving her groom stand there heartbroken.
There's more to the story, though. Both Kelly and her partner have come a long way since they concluded filming Love Is Blind in winter 2018. And, here's what you need to know.
Kelly Chase & Kenny Barnes Whole Truth
From the beginning, Kelly and Kenny's relationship was one of a kind, without any drama, compared to fellow couples including Giannina Gibelli, Damian Powers, Lauren Speed, Cameron Hamilton, Jessica Batten, Mark Cuevas, Amber Pike, Matt Barnett, Carlton Morton, and Diamond Jack. FYI, Kelly knew and was friends with Jessica for more than ten years before the show.
Truth be told, their relationship also wasn't highly focused by Netflix's producer since they were always adorable together and were the least problematic one. However, when Kelly shockingly objected at the altar, it was obvious everyone's jaws were dropped on the floor. The fans rioted on social media citing that Kenny didn't deserve the humiliation.
Some even claimed it was Kelly's big loss for turning down a nice guy like Barnes. But, if they only knew the truth. Basically, there both Kelly and Kenny's chemistry had faded by the time it was their wedding. It was indeed a mutual decision to part ways which makes it certain that Kenny knew already that he was gonna get rejected. Not to mention, he rejected too, but the part he said, 'I don't' was cut out by the producer.
Interestingly, Kelly realized she lost a diamond and reached out to Kenny a couple of weeks later. Sadly, he was already moved on and this time, it was Kenny who ignored and rejected Kelly. The Atlanta bred revealed the whole truth on the Love Is Blind Reunion and shed light on how she usually rejects great guys.
Kelly then dated a best friend who ironically was present at the wedding but that romance couldn't blossom. As for Kenny, he is happily in a relationship with another woman, his new girlfriend, Alexandra Garrison.
