Buckle up, reality TV fans, season 4 of Love Is Blind is dropping batches of new episodes on Netflix each Friday through April. And it’s safe to say that things are already heating up in a big way. There’s only one episode left before the live reunion, and it’s been messy. There have already been two breakups and the couples haven’t even made it to the altar episode yet!
But before getting into the reason you clicked on this article—let’s review the show’s plot. You know how people say that “love is blind”? Well, the purpose of this show is to quite literally find out whether that’s true. The show takes 30 singles and puts them in “pods” where they date, sight unseen.
And although the premise might sound like a total recipe for disaster, four marriages have actually come out of the three existing seasons. One of the couples that seems to be on their way to the altar this season is Chelsea Griffin and Kwame Appiah. Things definitely start out hot and heavy (well, as hot and heavy as you can be in the pods), but it seems they have a deeper connection underneath.
Ahead, find out how their journey together went, what happens to them on the show, and where they are today. (And this goes without saying, but *warning*, spoilers are ahead!)

What has happened during season 4 so far?
Chelsea is a 31-year-old speech language pathologist who is hoping for commitment and wants a “charismatic, charming momma’s boy,” according to Netflix. Kwame is a 33-year-old sales development manager and former soccer player who’s had a “tough” time finding compatibility, but who’s in search of a partner who “matches my energy,” per Netflix.
Needless to say, they hit it off after meeting in the pods. But while Chelsea is dead set on Kwame, he has his eyes on some other gals at first. Specifically, 27-year-old Micah, a marketing manager looking for a “smart and career-oriented” man. However, Micah ends up choosing 29-year-old environmental scientist Paul Peden instead.
Chelsea knows what she wants, so she goes right after Kwame. When they meet in the pods, they have ~intense~ sexual energy right off the bat. And that translates to real life too, because they make out a lot when they first meet. The PDA is real, folks.
They get engaged.
Yes, in the pods, they decide to spend forever together without seeing each other’s faces. At least Chelsea knows Kwame’s entire name, so they clearly connect on a deeper level. (Good for them!)
Chelsea and Kwame are all over each other and seem super obsessed in Mexico, which is cute. However, Kwame begins to flirt with some of the other girls during a group pool party, which understandably, doesn’t sit too well with his fiancée, Chelsea.
Does he really like Chelsea? Does he not want to be tied down? It’s unclear, but he can’t have his cake and eat it too—that’s for sure.
Once they get back to the “real” world, these two seem to be making it work quite well until Kwame’s mom enters the picture. Kwame is super close with his mom, but she does *not* approve of the love experiment, which makes Chelsea nervous that Kwame will back out at the last minute.
Are they still together?
As of right now, it appears that they’ll make it to the altar, despite Kwame’s mom’s disapproval. However, they don’t follow each other on Instagram, which isn’t always a good sign. Chelsea also posted a Valentine’s Day picture that definitely seems more about self-love than partner love…
But I can’t say for sure at the moment, so stay tuned and come back for more updates after the next batch of episodes drop.
