We might have finished binge-watching Love Is Blind weeks ago, but the Netflix show is still all that we can talk about. Whether it's what it's ACTUALLY like to go on the show, where the couples are now or what the future holds (second weddings?!), we're sucking up every bit of information that we can.

The latest Love Is Blind thing to catch our attention was during Jessica Batten's Instagram Q&A, when she gave viewers the chance to ask her anything and everything about her time on the show.

During which, she revealed she and Kelly Chase, who was engaged to but didn't eventually marry Kenny Barnes, have actually been friends for years.



"Did you know Kelly before the show?" a follower asked, to which Jessica replied, "I've known Kel for 10 years!" along with a photo of them both with brunette hair on an earlier holiday.

Fans were understandably surprised by the admission. "I'm actually getting a headache. I- w h a t ?" one person wrote, while another added, "What. This makes their convo together even weirder." A third said, "There's something about this that I'm not loving about this. Don't know what it is, but just something...."

While this wasn't made particularly clear on the show, it would make sense: the 30 contestants were all living in Atlanta during the time of filming, in order to give relationships the best chance of working, which means it's likely they shared mutual friends and, in this case, even knew each other.

During the experiment, Jessica was engaged to wed Mark Cuevas, while Kelly and Kenny walked down the aisle. Neither couple tied the knot, with the latter both revealing during the Love Is Blind reunion they had actually had relationships with other people since.
