Love Is Blind’s Shake pulled out of Perfect Match after finding out Nick Lachey was the host

Loool you just couldn’t make this up

Netflix’s latest reality TV series is a dating show called Perfect Match which involves a cast filled with people who didn’t find love on different reality TV shows. You just couldn’t make it up. The cast is just as chaotic as you’d imagine and includes the likes of Shayne and Bartise from Love Is Blind and Chloe Veitch and Francesca Farago from Too Hot To Handle.

Love Is Blind star Shake Chatterjee has revealed he was close to starring on the show but pulled out when he found out that Nick Lachey was going to host the show. Yikes. In a post to his Instagram story, Shake said: “Happy for my friends on Perfect Match but there was no way I was going to participate with that clown Nick Lachey hosting. I backed out as soon as I found out he was involved.” Shake hinted that although he was not going to be in Perfect Match, his reality TV journey did not stop there.

Shake was on Love Is Blind in 2022 and did not get married at the end. After the series, Shake launched his own podcast named Love Is Blurry, coining the phrase he used during the reunion episode, but he has since changed the name to Life Is Blurry. In Love Is Blind: After the Altar, Shake was noticeably missing from the episode, this was due to him not being interested in participating. He said: “I was approached. But I said no, because I just didn’t trust how they were going to edit me.”

Perfect Match airs on Netflix on Valentine’s Day and will be made up of 12 hour-long episodes, dropping over three weeks. The full cast list of Perfect Match is: Abbey Humphreys (Twentysomethings), Anne-Sophie Petit-Frere (Selling Tampa), Bartise Bowden (Love Is Blind), Calvin Crooks (The Circle), Chase DeMoor (Too Hot To Handle), Chloe Veitch (Too Hot To Handle, The Circle), Colony Reeves (Selling Tampa), Damian Powers (Love Is Blind), Diamond Jack (Love Is Blind), Dom Gabriel (The Mole), Francesca Farago (Too Hot To Handle), Georgia Hassarati (Too Hot To Handle), Ines Tazi (The Circle France), Izzy Fairthorne (Too Hot To Handle), Joey Sasso (The Circle), Kariselle Snow (Sexy Beasts), Lauren “LC” Chamblin (Love Is Blind), Mitchell Eason (The Circle), Nick Uhlenhuth (The Circle), Savannah Palacio (The Circle), Shayne Jansen (Love Is Blind), Will Richardson (The Mole), Zay Wilson (The Ultimatum).
