A rumored cast member for Season 7 of 'Love Is Blind' is under fire on TikTok.

On March 4, 2024, former Love Island USA contestant and TikTok creator, Andy Voyen (@andyvoyen), shared some inside scoop on what he's heard about Season 7 of Love Is Blind. Although nothing is confirmed, Andy revealed that TikTok has been buzzing with videos about one of the rumored contestants — and it's not painting a pretty picture.

According to Andy, he received a text message regarding this contestant, which read, "There's a rumor that this guy named [blank] is filming for Love is Blind right now in Minneapolis. Apparently, he's dated a ton of women and has a reputation of being abusive, lying, cheating, tricking women into sleeping with him. All of the TikTok girls are rooting against him and posting about it."

"I personally don't know this guy, so I'm not in a place to talk about his character, but I've heard enough about it, so I just wanted to share that," Andy told his followers. He also noted the tight-knit nature of Minneapolis, where filming is reportedly taking place, suggesting that this dynamic could add an intriguing layer to the season's narrative.

Some fans speculate that Ben Mezzenga could be the rumored contestant.

Despite Andy refraining from disclosing the individual's name, his followers — using their sleuthing skills — allegedly identified the rumored Love Is Blind contestant as Ben Mezzenga.

"It's Ben Mezzenga," one user wrote. "One of his friends told me he's on the show."

A second TikToker echoed this sentiment, commenting that a significant number of University of Minnesota athletes, including Ben Mezzenga, are well-known for their playboy reputations.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Ben graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2019 with a bachelor's degree in communication and media studies. Throughout his college career, he played for the Gopher baseball team.

Post-graduation, the rumored Love Is Blind contestant transitioned into the realm of real estate, establishing himself as a licensed realtor in Minneapolis. Described on as an "up-and-coming creative mind" with exceptional communication and negotiation skills, Ben clearly exudes ambition in his professional endeavors.

His profile reads, "Pushing the envelope of my own potential every day, I strive to make everything I come in contact with attract attention from everyone. I have developed my skills to provide a clear and simple process of buying and selling houses, and everything that comes with it, to my clients."

Before we go, it's important to note that this information is speculative. Netflix has neither confirmed nor denied Ben Mezzenga's involvement in Season 7 of Love Is Blind, so it's best to approach the topic with caution.
