Kenny Barnes Love Is Blind Experiment; Everything That Went Down
Blessed with a great and kind personality and of course, height too, Kenny Barnes is known for his participation on Netflix's reality dating show Love Is Blind where single men and women experimented to prove whether love is actually blind or not. And, one the first season of Love Is Blind, thirty singles signed up for the show to find their compatible partners.
Basically, all of the contestants are supposed to communicate one another through a wall of a pod without seeing their faces and try to find their partner after building a relationship based on their emotional connection. Not to mention, the couple only finally gets to see each other in person after they if they succeed to find their match and become engaged.
Speaking of the beloved Kenny Barnes, he felt a connection with fellow contestant Kelly Chase on the show co-starring Cameron Hamilton, Lauren Speed, Damian Powers, Giannina Gibelli, Mark Cuevas, Jessica Batten, Amber Pike, Carlton Morton, Diamond Jack, and Matt Barnett. Kenny indeed popped the question without knowing what Kelly looked like in person to which Kelly happily said. But, three months later after a whirlwind romance that consisted of a romantic vacation to Mexico, Kelly said 'I do not' at the altar, on their wedding.
Evidently, Kenny and Kelly's love story failed to prove the experiment of the show that love is blind. And that's alright, though. Apparently, however, after more than a year later, there was more to the truth behind their relationship to dig in, as revealed by the episode of Love Is Blind reunion.
Kenny Barnes & Kelly Chase Spills The Tea On Love Is Blind Reunion
All twelve contestants who were able to be engaged on the show although many of them couldn't get married, had a reunion a year and a half later. The dramatic and eye-raising Love Is Blind Reunion episode was released a couple of weeks later after Netflix aired all ten episodes of the show.
Seemingly, Barnes had a lot to say about what he went through the show as well as after he left the show after being rejected by former fiancee at the altar. And, apparently, the rejection was actually a mutual decision. Apparently, both Kenny and Kelly needed a lot of time to get to know each other and the engagement was indeed a lot of pressure.
Clearly, Kenny and Kelly had a lot of tension in the air. And, none of them felt the decision to be wedded in a span of three months of their dating lfie was right. And, if the viewers remember, it makes sense as the former couple didn't have any intimate relationship which was discussed by Kenny on their vacation to Mexico.
Following the last episode of the wedding, Kenny and Kelly never communicated. Kelly, however, reached out to Kenny through a love letter that she was sorry and wanted to work out their relationship again. But, homeboy Kenny was moved on and couldn't be bothered to respond. Yes, Kenny ghosted her.
Barnes, however, made sure that him ignoring Kelly had nothing to do with her and that he wanted to focus on himself and his mental health. Today, a year and a half later, Kenny who is grateful of his Love Is Blind experience is dating another woman named Alexandra Garrison and says he is extremely happy with where he stands today.
