Vanessa Lachey addresses the lack of body diversity on 'Love Is Blind' and thinks it may have to do with contestants feeling 'insecure'

Host Vanessa Lachey addressed the lack of body diversity on "Love Is Blind"  in a recent interview with Insider.

She said she often wonders if some contestants don't make it past the "pods" stage of the experiment because they feel "insecure" and don't have enough time to make meaningful connections.

"Their whole life they've been so insecure about being themselves because of this crazy swipe generation that we are in and this catfishing world that we're in"

"that they're so afraid to be themselves," Lachey said of contestants who may not believe they fit into conventional beauty standards.

On the first phase of Netflix's hit dating show, male and female contestants live in separate pods and only communicate with each other in designated rooms, separated from each other by a wall.

 She's not a part of the casting process but said she knows that "Love Is Blind" and Netflix give people with diverse bodies a "fair shot"
