Love Is Blind’s Jessica Batten shocked viewers of the popular Netflix show when she abandoned Mark Cuevas on their wedding day.
Jessica left Mark standing at the altar after agreeing to marry him in shocking scenes.
However, she’s now spoken out about her experience on the show, which she branded "psychological warfare."
She also claimed that she wanted to quit the series but was told she ‘had to’ stay.
Show boss Chris Coelen has defended the show and insisted that none of the contestants were ‘forced’, to do anything they weren’t comfortable with.
He told Metro Online: "Jessica is a fascinating character for all types of reasons. She’s very relatable in that she’s very conflicted.
‘’I know she gets a lot of vitriol on social media, but she could’ve walked away, she definitely could have. I feel like she was very confused and very conflicted,’’ he continued.
‘‘Nobody had to do anything. If they found someone, they could choose to propose, they could choose to accept that or not accept that. If they got engaged, they knew there would be a wedding day that was set four weeks from their engagement.’’
Coelen was also surprised and relieved at the fact the contestants got so involved with the experiment, as there was no guarantee they would take to it.
Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton dropped the L-word pretty early on, so it looks like Coelen had nothing to worry about.
Jessica’s comments come after Amber told her what she really thought of her intentions with now-husband Matt Barnett.
The tense exchange unfolded during the reunion episode.
However, Jessica did concede: "I guess I’ll apologise to whoever I need to apologise to, but I’m not going to apologise to myself because I’m not actually sorry.’’
Love Is Blind season 1 and Love Is Blind: The Reunion are available to stream on Netflix.
