Numerous people have demanded the show’s hosts, Nick & Vanessa Lachey, be fired as a result of the reunion episode of Love is Blind that aired on Sunday.

It was the anticipated moment for supporters.

The fourth season of Love Is Blind, which had been a rollercoaster of a season, finally concluded last week when the couples exchanged “I do” and, in some cases, “I don’t” vows on their special wedding days.

Even if some couples’ expectations weren’t completely met (it stinks to be Paul and Micah), the reunion was meant to be a chance for all the competitors to come together and update us on their post-show lives.

We anticipated the villains of this year, Irina, Jackie, Josh, and Micah, to be prepared to defend themselves, but Nick and Vanessa Lachey, the hosts, surprised us by jumping in and outing themselves in such a public way. In particular, Vanessa’s line of questioning raised more than a few eyebrows.

Fans commented on Twitter that the two had “no chemistry” with the other members, which made the whole situation awkward.

“I just once again want to know what crimes Nick and Vanessa Lachey have witnessed for the execs to keep them on payroll. They’re so awkward as hosts and have no chemistry with the cast lol,” wrote this viewer.

They were also chastised for their line of questioning, particularly in comparison to this year’s male finalists, Marshall and Paul.

“This reunion was TERRIBLE! I’ve always defended the Lacheys when people said they were terrible hosts but I’m not going to anymore. Nick barely said anything and Vanessa was so obviously biased towards Jackie and rude to Marshall,” tweeted this outraged user.

“I was like, ‘F*** man.’ They kept drilling, drilling it down on me,” Paul told Entertainment Tonight. “I think I said my piece. I think Vanessa might have had a little bit of personal bias in that scenario or at least I kind of detected that. I don’t know. But that’s just my assumption based on how she continued to drill into it after I gave my full rationale for why I felt the way that I did.”


Some viewers even petitioned to remove the couple from the show.

A petition has gone viral, stating that while the show is popular, it has “one big problem – the hosts’ Nick and Vanessa Lachey.”

“From the first season, the hosts felt pretty useless and out of place,” the description adds. They appear to be more interested in drawing attention to themselves and their personal life than in the candidates who are actually participating in the experiment.

“Many enjoy the show but it’s being held back from its full potential with cringy Nick and Vanessa Lachey,” it added.

And after the reunion episode hit our screens, the number of people signing the petition saw a dramatic spike, now standing at almost 19,000 signatures.
