Although she found fame and love on Love Is Blind, Lauren Speed is not the biggest fan of reality dating shows. She was even skeptical about joining the original cast of the hit Netflix series in the first place, as she told PopCulture.com in a November 2020 interview.
Lauren also shared with The Guardian in December 2020 that she has only seen the popular ABC dating series The Bachelor because Cameron Hamilton wanted to watch it together. “I just can’t get into it. I’m not even really into dating shows… even though we met on a dating show,” she confessed. Cameron said he originally watched The Bachelor as a form of research for his own TV stint.
The only exception for Lauren seems to be watching her own experience unravel on reality television, although she has only seen Love Is Blind once completely through. Instead, she finds herself skipping back to the parts that involved only her and Cameron. “It’s like watching our home videos. Watching us get together, watching our families come together and all that stuff. It wasn’t overly produced, so still had a lot of transparency and honesty,” she shared. Considering her love story was caught on professional cameras and is forever saved in Netflix’s archives, that is one fancy home video!
