Imagine going on Love Is Blind, going through the whole experiment, and even making it to the altar, only to have Netflix cut your love story out of the show. That's what reportedly happened to Season 5 couple Renee Poche and Carter Wall.

While we were told that the only engaged couples were JP and Taylor, Lydia and Milton, and Izzy and Stacy, there was apparently a fourth couple who fell in love in the pods.

So, why were they cut from the show? Apparently, there was a lot of shady stuff going on between Carter and Renee.

Why was Carter and Renee's story cut on 'Love Is Blind' Season 5?

Netflix did not cut Carter and Renee's story to be unfair or cheat viewers out of seeing all the couples. The streaming service cut their story because things were reportedly extremely messy and toxic between Renee and Carter. Additionally, Carter allegedly threatened production if they shared his story.

Reality TV show expert @storytimewithrikkii explained in a TikTok video what sources told her. She said that Renee allegedly had a boyfriend at the time of filming, whom she actually ended up marrying in March 2023 (his name is currently unknown). Meanwhile, Carter reportedly brought a girl home to their shared apartment during the experiment and was alleged to have become violent at one point.

Other TikTok users have also claimed to have heard similar allegations against Carter.

@storytimewithrikkii also reached out to Renee, who claimed that she was dedicated to Carter from the start.

"I did ask her to comment on when she actually met her current husband and she refused to. She also said that it makes her very sad anything to do with their story being cut after everything she went through," @storytimewithrikkii said.

Another TikTok user who claimed they were Carter's friend confirmed that Carter and Renee did make it all the way to the altar as they were present at their wedding.

This post was a nod to Carter and JP's patriotism shown on the show. In Episode 7, Carter even showed he was a fan of JP while at the BBQ, claiming that JP was the type of man he would want to marry his daughter if he had one.
