'Love Is Blind': Chelsea Says Show Helped Her Seek Therapy

Love is blind season 6 contestant Chelsea Blackwell shares her experiences seeking mental health help after filming the show.

During a recent Instagram Q&A, Chelsea opened up about going to therapy after filming her season of the Netflix reality show.

“Absolutely. The show was very accommodating and helped me not only find a therapist but also pay for the costs,” Chelsea revealed. “I've never seen a therapist, but man oh man. I think everyone can benefit from an unbiased opinion. I never thought I 'needed' therapy, but I had a lot of inner issues that I needed to debunk and My life, my mentality, my heart has completely changed.”

As for how she feels after a therapy experience, Chelsea added, “I thought I loved myself before, but I've never felt THIS kind of love.”

When another fan asked her for a mental health check, Chelsea responded, “I'm so good. I have the most amazing people who know my heart and have been so supportive! It's an experience I've done that has been my weakest moments emphasized, but we are here surviving these trenches.”

One thing Chelsea is disappointed about when it comes to how she is portrayed on the show is what was left out of the experience. After forming connections with both Trevor Sova And Jimmy Presnell in the pods, Chelsea accepted Jimmy's proposal and moved on from their tumultuous relationship.

“There is sooooo much not shown. I knew this would be the case. There is a ton of footage and they created our storyline that they saw fit,” Chelsea wrote. “Was I emotional and insecure? Absolutely. But my feelings were valid and I wish we had included more. But that's showbiz baby.”


However, despite these discrepancies, Chelsea has absolutely no regrets about doing the show.

“This was the most beautiful trip I have ever been on,” she told another fan.

Chelsea received some criticism earlier this season for telling Jimmy that people often compare her to Megan Fox when it comes to looks.

'I contacted her [Fox]and I thought, 'I'm so sorry I did this to you.'” Chelsea recently told ETadding that she hasn't heard from the Transformers star. “I'm just waiting for Megan to respond.”

Chelsea's comments about therapy differ from what previous contestants have said about their experiences on the show. Season 2 participants Danielle Ruhl And Nick Thompson have both spoken out about their mental health struggles following filming, making a series of accusations against Netflix and production company Kinetic Content.


“When I was experiencing medical issues in the pods, there were no doctors. When I was experiencing mental health issues, there were no therapists,” Danielle claimed to ET in April 2023. “You just had to rely on your producers to make you feel better.”

“There was absolutely no therapist on set. There was absolutely no support after filming, and I will take that to my grave,” she insisted.

Last year Nick co-founded the UCAN Foundationwhich stands for Unscripted Cast Advocacy Network, which provides legal resources and mental health care to reality stars.

In April 2023, Kinetic Content released a statement to ET in response to the claims, saying: “The well-being of our participants is of the utmost importance to Kinetic. We have strict protocols in place to care for each person before, during and after filming.”
