So, does Netflix pay for the engagement rings on 'The Ultimatum'?

It's unclear if Netflix's production team covers the cost of the engagement rings in The Ultimatum, but it's pretty safe for us to assume that the men buy the rings themselves. Season 2 cast member James Morris even said he pulled the diamonds from his grandmother's ring and placed them on a band for his now-fiancée, Ryann McCracken.

"I already have that ring that my grandmother gave me," James told Ryann at the beginning of Season 2. "And I know that I'm gonna pull the diamonds from that, have it set differently, and probably added onto in some way."

Netflix does, however, pay for the engagement rings in Love Is Blind.

"If they get to the point that they want to propose, we will ultimately give them [the rings]," the show's creator, Chris Coelen, told Newsweek in November 2022. "I don't know how many different kinds of rings, but there's [a] selection of rings that we will show to them… if they want to propose and get engaged, we will give them the opportunity to."

Chris added that both the men and women are allowed (and encouraged) to propose to their partner, so it's likely this rule also applies to The Ultimatum as well.

The Ultimatum is now streaming on Netflix.
