Lauren and Cameron on Love Is Blind
Lauren said in the first episode: “My connection with Cameron is very strong and I feel like I’m a good judge of character.”
Their connection was so strong that Lauren and Cameron decided to get engaged just five days after they met!
So far, Lauren and Cameron have been the standout favourites of the show. They’ve accrued a huge fanbase who are all hoping that their engagement worked out.
Although they faced obstacles as a couple – mainly regarding their different races and processing the stigmas that being in an interracial couple can bring – they got through it all together. They were one of the two couples who got hitched at the end of the experiment, leaving Netflix fans everywhere over the moon!
