“Love is Blind” contestants might be blindsided by their fiance’s sexual orientation, but the shot callers sure won’t … they’re already asking potential cast members how they identify.
Here’s the deal … the popular Netflix reality dating show was recently renewed for a second season and is currently casting in the Chicago area, with producers asking a pretty personal and important question: What’s your sexual orientation???
Remember, it became a huge deal first season … Carlton didn’t tell Diamond he was bisexual until AFTER they got engaged, leading to an epic spat and some much-needed therapy.
The questionnaire asks potential cast members if they consider themselves straight, gay, bisexual or other.
The other casting questions are pretty standard … age, ethnicity, hair color, eye color, occupation, hobbies etc. Casting also wants face photos and complete body shots.
There’s also questions about dating status, where the applicant meets prospective mates, what qualities they look for and deal-breakers like religion, ethnicity and cultural differences.
The casting call also asks about cigarette and alcohol use, desired and undesired physical traits in a partner, and descriptions of current dating history and longest relationships.
Interesting … no questions about politics, which has become a tried-and-true dealbreaker.
The big question now … do producers want another Carlton situation or not?!?
