The Love Is Blind star appeared in the clip for less than a second, but it was undoubtedly him. Donning a light blue shirt and grinning from ear to ear, his appearance was impossible to mistake. And fans in the comment section had a few thoughts.
“Oh [he’s] been trying for A WHILE,” one person joked. Another added, “That is 100 percent him.” So, how did Kwame end up in Married at First Sight and Love Is Blind? Here’s what people think.
‘Married at First Sight’ and ‘Love Is Blind’ share the same producers and casting team. Fans think Kwame was asked to come back.
The two marriage-centric Netflix reality series are produced by Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Sam Dean, and more. Additionally, Kinetic Content casts the stars of each show, meaning that although Kwame didn’t make the cut for Season 10 of Married at First Sight, they potentially saw something special in him and asked him to come back for Season 4 of Love Is Blind.
One fan noted the possible explanation on TikTok.
“Same producers and casting team!” they said. “I bet they asked him to re-audition.” Another viewer wrote, “Kinetic [Content] is responsible for casting talent and producing Married at First Sight & Love Is Blind. He’s been trying to get on TV for a while.”
@piebus on TikTok wasn’t the only viewer who caught Kwame on Married at First Sight. On Twitter, @BlackerAndProud shared a clip of the Goldey-Beacom alum smiling and clapping in a room of potential Season 10 candidates.
“Aye Kwame … you gotta explain this one,” they wrote. “You been on all the shows looking for a wife,” followed by three crying emojis.
The first five episodes of Love Is Blind Season 4 are now available for streaming on Netflix.
