Love is Blind presenters, married couple Nick and Vanessa Lachey, are currently under fire from fans, with one even beginning a petition asking for the hosts to be replaced on the show. The petition has a goal of 20,000 signatures, and has currently received signatures from over 19,000 fans. What do you think?

The petition's description explains: "The show has had a ton of success but has one large problem - the hosts Nick and Vanessa Lachey... They seem to be much more concerned with directing as much attention at themselves and their personal lives rather than focusing on the contestants that are actually participating in the experiment.

"Many enjoy the show but it’s being held back from its full potential with cringy Nick and Vanessa Lachey."

They went on to suggest that Nick was unkind to his ex-wife, Jessica Simpson, after claiming that "second marriages are always the best," adding: "Vanessa Lachey is domineering of every reunion and attempts to gain as much camera time as possible by cutting into every conversation, speaking over her husband and contestants, and very badly acting like she cares about members of the cast."

They concluded: "Now three seasons in with a cult following and international versions of the show, it is time to upgrade to hosts that don’t make you want to turn off the show every time they speak…
Join the thousands of Love is Blind fans in making the show evolve into the best version of itself by removing Nick and Vanessa Lachey as hosts and replacing them with…. Well literally anyone else."

Although the couple have yet to respond to the petition, Vanessa issued a plea to her followers amid criticism about the live reunion episode, reminding fans that "words have weight". She wrote: "Please keep in mind online (and in life) that “words have weight”. What you say to someone you don’t know (and don’t know the whole story too) can have a lasting effect on them… in many different ways. Mental health should always be treated with respect."
