Love Is Blind alum Amber Pike admits that she isn’t a fan of the show that helped her find her husband.

Amber appeared during Season 1 of Netflix’s dating experiment in which she got engaged to Matt Barnett sight unseen.

Amber and Matt met in the pods, formed an intense connection, fell in love, and got engaged without ever having seen each other.

Following their engagement, Amber and Matt met in person for the first time and ended up becoming husband and wife.

Fast-forward four years later, and the couple is still married — but according to Amber, it’s no thanks to Love Is Blind.

In a recent Instagram post, Amber responded to a question from a fan who asked, “Who was your favorite couple from Season 4??”

In response, Amber made it clear that she isn’t a fan of the show when she wrote, “I told them to stay away from us.”

In yet another message pertaining to Love Is Blind, Amber replied to a fan who wanted to know why she mentions Love Is Blind in her IG profile — which reads in part, “Love Is Blind❤️Season☝?” — despite her dislike of the show.

Amber explained that rather than deleting any mention of Love Is Blind, she’s chosen to keep it since it’s “easier than explaining to the millions of new people that visit my page every month ‘yes I’m the amber from that reality show.'”

Following Amber’s recent interaction with Love Is Blind fans, E! News reached out to Netflix for comment, back did not hear back.

Love Is Blind is under fire by former contestants for horrendous filming conditions

Amber isn’t the first Love Is Blind cast member to throw shade at the show and its production. As Monsters and Critics previously reported, Season 2 alum Danielle Ruhl and her ex-husband Nick Thompson both alleged that they were deprived of food and sleep and claimed that production ignored their mental health concerns.

Netflix’s production company, Kinetic Content, issued a statement in response to the allegations. The entity told E! News, “The well-being of our participants is of paramount importance to Kinetic. We have rigorous protocols in place to care for each person before, during, and after filming.”

Season 4 of Love Is Blind is currently streaming on Netflix.
