While romance rumors were swirling about Shaina and Shayne Jansen after the second season of “Love Is Blind,” it’s obvious that those aren’t true!
Just before the engagement news, “Extra’s” Katie Krause spoke with Shaina, who played coy on her relationship status. She quipped, “You’re going to have to stay tuned.”
As for having feelings for Shayne, she said, “I think he’s a great person. I want nothing but the best for him.”
On the show, Shaina accepted Kyle Abrams’ proposal, but they didn’t end up getting married. As for why she said yes in the first place, she admitted, “When I was going through the whole process, I think I kind of got wrapped up in it.”
Hurley went on, “I also didn’t want to hurt him, which is not a good reason to say yes to somebody, looking back on it. I wish I would have been forthright from the beginning, but it was just crazy… It was more out of, again, people-pleasing.”
