The one that got away.
Love Is Blind star Kyle Abrams had a rollercoaster romance with Shaina Hurley during season 2 of the hit Netflix show, but there is one specific person he wishes he had "tried harder" to woo.
Abrams, 29, left the dating show single after Hurley called it quits on their whirlwind engagement, and now, the young construction worker has realized he would do things differently if given another shot.
“I think I would have tried harder with my two other loves,” Abrams spilled to Us Weekly. “I felt like I gave up on one person in particular, and I should have tried way harder. It’s a huge regret of mine, actually.”
In the show's Friday, March 4, reunion episode, Abrams confessed he believes that he should have proposed to 31-year-old data analyst Deepti Vempati.
“Biggest regret is I should have asked Deepti to marry me,” he admitted. ”That’s what I learned the most. I f—ked up. I should have tried harder for you. I love her so much, she’s the best. And I wish I saw what was right in front of me and that’s my biggest regret. I’m sorry.”
Vempati exited the show single herself after leaving fellow contestant Abishek "Shake" Chatterjee at the altar after she discovered he had bragged about not being sexually attracted to her. He had previously claimed he would have to get drunk in order to be intimate with her, and compared her to his "aunt".
"It’s OK to not be physically attracted to somebody." The offended reality star told him at the reunion. "Guess what? There are a million other people who are."
Vempati went on to explain that what has been so upsetting to her is the way Chatterjee chooses to "go about life" blinding hurting feelings.
"It’s how you do it and how you say it that’s extremely disrespectful and degrading to women," she argued passionately. "And I’m so happy for every single person sitting on this couch today because they have my back and they call you out."
