There are often love triangles in every season of the Netflix dating series Love Is Blind, and Chelsea Blackwell was part of two. She and Jessica Vestal both fell for Jimmy Presnell, and Chelsea chose between Jimmy and Trevor Sova. While this alone would have made season 6 fun and memorable, Chelsea told Jimmy that she looks like Megan Fox, which caused a big stir.

However, when Chelsea and Jimmy got engaged and the big reveal happened, Jimmy didn’t think that she resembled the famous actress. He told the cameras, “She definitely lied to me about some, uh, how she looked. Chelsea told me she looked like Megan Fox. At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter.”

In this article, we’ll take a look at what Chelsea Blackwell’s life looked like before she became a Love Is Blind cast member, and what she said after she received negative attention.
