Here's what we know about Love Is Blind Season 3 contestant Zanab's job.
What is 'Love Is Blind' Season 3 contestant Zanab's job?
Zanab reveals to Cole in the Love Is Blind Season 3 opener that she lost both of her parents when she was a teenager in rather traumatic ways. She explained that the losses really forced her to grow up faster than she planned.
Although she sounds American on the show, Zanab also reveals that she's from the U.K. (calling her mom "mum" was a big hint!). More specifically, according to The Cinemaholic, she was born in Irvine, Scotland. But, per Us Weekly, she grew up in London.
The 31-year-old Love Is Blind contestant spoke about how she never got hit on when she was working as a flight attendant.
Zanab is a flight attendant for American Airlines, and as a result, her Instagram is total travel goals (warning: don't look at her page if you don't want to be struck with a strong feeling of wanderlust).
She also has "realtor" listed on her Instagram bio — but wait, Zanab isn't done there. She's also a Spenga fitness instructor (Zanab cheekily added the hashtags #igot3jobs and #idontgettired to her Instagram post about becoming a fitness instructor).
What is 'Love Is Blind' Season 3 star Zanab's ethnicity?
As mentioned by Elite Daily, Zanab's Instagram bio includes two flag emojis: the Union Jack and flag of Pakistan. While we already know she was born in the U.K., she has Pakistani roots.
Zanab's faith is also important to her.
Another word in Zanab's Instagram bio is "Chosen."
Cole was sold on Zanab when she brought up the idea of them praying together if they were to tie the knot. He asked Zanab if she wanted to be his girlfriend, admitting that he was falling in love with her. Zanab said the feeling was mutual.
After that, the couple doesn't waste any time. Cole proposes to Zanab and she accepts. Their first meeting takes off without any turbulence — but do their sparks keep flying past their first kiss?
Zanab busted out her British accent during her hot tub conversation with Cole. He mentions that he can sense their genuine physical chemistry, even though Zanab frets that Cole may not super physically into her (which is shocking given how stunning she is, but we're always our own worst enemy!)
However, the morning after Zanab and Cole's first night together doesn't go quite as smoothly. Has the honeymoon phase already worn off?
Considering Cole weighs his options and struggles with his family's disapproval in Episodes 5 through 7, marriage might not be in the cards for these two. "Zanab is the girl I emotionally connect with, Colleen is the girl I physically connect with, where's the in-between?," he questions. Yikes.
Well, if things don't work out with Cole, Zanab has an easy escape route thanks to her flight attendant job!
Episodes 8–11 of Love Is Blind Season 3 drop on Netflix on Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2022!
