A former “Love Is Blind” contestant is suing Netflix and show producers.  Jeremy Hartwell, from season 2, is saying that “the show manufactured drama by forcing the contestants to film while they were drunk, starved, sleep-deprived and underpaid.”  He went on to say, “the combination of sleep deprivation, isolation, lack of food, and an excess of alcohol contributed to inhumane working conditions on the show … and says it made cast members hungry for social connections, altering their emotions and decision-making.”  According to Jeremy, the cast made $1,000 per week. But since they worked about 20 hours a day, they made about $7.14 an hour.
