Fans speculated Shayne was on drugs during season 2 of Love is Blind
After fans viewed season two of Netflix’s Love is Blind, which saw season 4 episodes return to the streaming site in February, many started to speculate that Shayne was on something due to his strange behavior.
As a result of seeing Jensen’s restlessness fans of the show left comments on his social media posts suggesting he was taking cocaine while on set.
Jensen said he grew tired of seeing the snowflake emoji written below his photos and decided to directly address the allegations on Viall’s podcast.
He said: “I’m not naive to say I haven’t done it before in my past, like no, but not in the show. I’m not stupid. I’m not going to risk everything for that on the show.”
Why was Shayne acting strange on Love is Blind?
So what was the cause of his strange behavior in the new season of Love is Blind?
Jensen explained to podcast host Viall that he has “severe” attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD. It is a “mental health condition that can cause a variety of symptoms, ranging from difficulty paying attention and finishing tasks to acting impulsively and feeling hyperactive,” according to Insider.
In the show, cast members are put in small pods where they speak to potential partners through a wall. They converse for hours in front of cameras, which, for Shayne, was a “very uncomfortable situation.”
He told Viall he relied heavily on caffeine to stay awake during the long filming days in the pods. He said his daily routine consisted of drinking five espresso shots. Two in the morning and three more in the afternoon, which he said didn’t help his anxiety.
