The body activist Sara ‘Songbird’ Linderholm looks critically at the issue of weight in the casting form.

She thinks it’s irrelevant in a dating show, especially in a dating show where love is blind.

– If they are going to parachute or load everyone into an elevator that cannot exceed the maximum weight, I would have understood, but that is completely irrelevant in a dating program, says Sara ‘Songbird’ Linderholm in a comment to Nyheter24 and continues:

– It defeats the whole purpose of love being blind if the focus is on weight. After all, the participants are not allowed to know such information about each other when they date in the podcasts.

Krissy Hedenstedt, who married Rasmus Hedenstedt in the first season of Swedish Love is Blind, does not remember whether she had to answer a question about weight in her casting form. However, the production asked her about her dress size.

– Honestly, I can’t remember being asked about it! On the other hand, they asked about size in clothes, but I interpreted that as needed for any clothes that would be assisted by them, she says in a comment to Nyheter24.

Mastiff has chosen to remove the question of weight

When Nyheter24 reaches Matilda SnowwallCEO of the production company Mastiff, regarding the issue of weight in the casting form, she announces that they have now realized that it is not relevant to the program and have removed it.

– It’s a question that sometimes comes up during casting, but we realized that it’s not relevant for Love is Blind. That’s why we removed it, it doesn’t get any weirder than that.
