The hit reality dating show Love Is Blind on Netflix tests the theory as to whether love really is blind, and by the end of Season 1, four couples had the opportunity to prove that you don't need to see someone to fall in love with them.

Cameron Hamilton and Lauren Speed were the fan-favorite couple to last past the season finale. They made it down the aisle, and if you've been following the reality TV darlings since then, you already know they are still happily together today.

Lauren and Cameron might be the most successful couple to come out of 'Love Is Blind.'

A lot of time has passed since Season 1 of Love Is Blind was shot in early 2018. When the series debuted in February 2020, fans became obsessed with Lauren and Cameron's pairing and how different the content creator and the scientist were. On the show, Lauren, a Black woman, questioned how her community would feel about her being with Cameron, who is white. Fortunately, the couple pushed through the outside noise and got married during the Season 1 finale.

Cameron and Lauren have continued their love story since production wrapped. In November 2023, they celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary by renewing their vows in Las Vegas, and have continued working together on their own YouTube series, Hangin' With the Hamiltons. Additionally, the foodies share their passion for cooking (well, Cameron's, since Lauren told us he's the chef in the household) with their Swicy chicken tenders, which they coat with Lay's Sweet and Spicy Honey chips.

But the couple's love for a good meal is far from the only thing keeping them together. When asked what makes each other "spicy" or "sweet," Cameron mentioned Lauren's ability to "do some experiences that I really wouldn't think to do" like travel and go on "really fun adventures." He also shared that Lauren has a "sweet" side to her that some fans may not expect.

"Lauren is really a sweetheart," Cam said. "What comes to mind is last Valentine's Day, she actually made this jar of little love notes. And I sometimes will open the jar and read some of those little notes, and it's a nice pick-me-up. So she has some very thoughtful gestures like that that I think aren't talked about enough."

Lauren continued the love fest by telling us Cameron's "sweet" attributes include pretty much "everything," including the fact that he's "so loving" and "really pays attention to me and our relationship." The Leap of Faith author also said her husband has a "spicy" side to him, especially in the humor department.

"First off, Cam is very funny, he's hilarious, and everyone doesn't get to see that side of him," Lauren told us. "He has a crazy sense of humor which can be like, you know, spicy, and only I see that side from time to time. And I love it, I love that about him."

Lauren and Cameron share why they don't feel pressured by 'Love Is Blind' fans to make their marriage work.

Although Love Is Blind has six seasons under its belt (and counting), Lauren and Cameron remain one of the show's "golden couples." Nearly every year, a fan on X, formerly Twitter, posts about the show being solely for the couple to meet, especially with the growing number of LIB couples who don't make it past the pods or their wedding days.

Lauren and Cameron confirmed to us that they’re well aware of the fans’ admiration for them. However, despite the recognition they’ve received, they don’t feel pressured to post about everything happening in their marriage or to stay together for the public’s sake, which Lauren said is always a “recipe for disaster.”

“I think for me and Cam, it's important for us to keep the focus inwardly on ourselves and what's going on between us as opposed to all the outside forces,” she said.

“Of course, we appreciate everyone's support and the love that everyone gets us,” she added. “But we don't look to validate our relationship outside of ourselves. We just try to stay in tune with each other. And that's the most important thing.”

Lauren and Cameron teased a podcast and other future collaborations.

While Lauren and Cameron have survived the reality TV breakup curse, fans still miss seeing them on their TV screens. Fortunately, we will see more of the couple in the future through their upcoming projects.

In addition to their YouTube channel (Hanging With the Hamiltons), Lauren and Cam shared they have something in the works that could possibly lead to a return to TV. However, Lauren teased that the audience must wait for them to announce it on their socials.

"Well, we are definitely working on a lot of different things, and a big part of that involves us returning to TV," Lauren confirmed. "That's all we can say right now. People just have to stay tuned, be sure that they're following us on all of our socials because we always keep our supporters updated on everything that we have in the works."

While Lauren couldn't tell us what the TV return will look like, Cam told us the couple is working on a podcast, where they will likely discuss their relationship and fame, among other things.

"[We're] working on a podcast as well," he said. "I think we'll probably see that sooner than later."

Whatever the lovebirds decide to do, we will definitely be tuned in!
