LOVE is Blind’s Amber Pike went OFF on co-star Jessica Batten for “throwing herself” at fiancé Barnett after she had already gotten engaged to another man.
The cast from the Netflix blind dating show joined hosts Nick and Vanessa Lachey for the reunion special that will steam on the platform’s YouTube channel March 5th.
A dramatic love triangle played out on the show with both Amber, 27, and Jessica, 34, competing for 28-year-old Matt Barnett – who ended up getting engaged to Amber.
Jessica accepted the proposal from contestant Mark Cuevas, 25, but continued to pursue Barnett in numerous conversations after they were all engaged.
In the season finale of the series, Amber and Barnett said “I do” to each other while Jessica dumped fiancé Mark at the altar.
Georgia peach Amber admits she “confronted” her then-husband-to-be before the wedding about his feelings towards the blonde regional manager.
She claims Barnett confessed to “trying to figure things out” but insisted there was nothing more to the story and she “believed him.”
At the reunion special, Amber SLAMMED Jessica’s persistence towards her husband, who already had a ring on his finger:
“As far as I was concerned, that [relationship] was nothing after the fact. So to see her throwing herself at him in Mexico? B***h, you're sheisty!
“You're so fake, coming to my face like we were cool. You are so fake. I think you're a very disingenuous person, and you know what?
“I hope seeing this, you do grow from it, because that is not what the world needs, is women that go behind people's backs like that.
“You were engaged to another man that you were leading on. He was engaged. He made his choice. So no, I’m not super happy seeing that,” she fired off before the clip ends.
Jessica is speechless as she attempts to hold back tears when being confronted by her angry nemesis.
The rest of the cast – including fan-favorites Lauren Speed, Cameron Hamilton, Giannina Gibelli and more – are also at a loss for words with stunned expressions on their face.
Atlanta-based scientist Cameron, 28, revealed exclusively to The Sun that Jessica’s infatuation with Barnett was one of the most "surprising" parts when watching the show back:
“We really had no idea that was going on while filming. I knew in the pods Jessica liked both Mark and Barnett.
“Even on the dates if we we didn’t connect with them, we still were friends and would still talk to each other. So I talked to Jessica about Lauren and she talked to me about Barnett.
“But I had no idea she had such strong feelings that continued,” Cameron – who got married to Lauren on the show – shared.
