Umm, Shake has been announced as the new host of Love Is Blind on Netflix?!

Season three, which has already been filmed, will be Nick and Vanessa Lachey’s last

Controversial season two cast member, Abhishek “Shake” Chatterjee, will be the new host of Love Is Blind on Netflix, The Tab can reveal. Netflix has confirmed the shocking news, and I for one cannot believe this is really happening?! After causing a stir on the show, bosses have said they believe having him on board for new seasons will “bring something new to the show”, and keep the format fresh.

Season three of the show is set in Dallas, and has already been filmed, and this will be the last season current hosts Nick and Vanessa Lachey will head up, with Shake taking over from season four. He will host both the main show, and all spin-off and reunion shows too. Love Is Blind has been confirmed for at least a fourth and fifth season on Netflix, with season three expected later this year.

Shake said he is “extremely excited” about his new role, and can’t wait to get back to the pods to film. “I have to admit, when I got the call I was a bit shocked myself,” he told The Tab. “But I’m extremely excited. Obviously the bosses know they need to keep people talking, and the best way to do that is to get someone like me involved. They’d be fools to let me go.”

He said he will be offering new cast members tips and advice on how to make it big on the show, and will definitely be sticking to his villain roots. “I’m not changing for anyone,” he said. “The Shake you saw on the show is me, and I won’t apologise for that. Since the show I’ve had loads of guys asking for dating advice, so I’ve decided I’ll be a bit of a guru for the newbies on the show. I’m most looking forward to see who will step into my villain shoes next!”

I’m shook????

Before you get too excited (or scared), check the date! Happy April Fools’ 🙂
