"Do you believe that love is really blind?" Yes! That's the unanimous answer of ten participants in Love Is Blind Brazil - the national version of one of the most successful reality shows on Netflix, Love is Blind - who formed couples and continued in the experiment until the altar. Hosted by Camila Queiroz and Klebber Toledo, the reality puts to the test whether it is possible to fall in love without ever having seen each other.
16 women and 16 men agreed to throw themselves in this unique experiment, but only 10 people managed to fall in love in the blind dating booths. Now, it's time to get to know these participants better and try to guess who the couples are. Will it be that now, with eye contact and a good period living together, will they be able to truly surrender to love?
