‘Love Is Blind’ stars reveal they still wear costumes

  • “Love is Blind” stars Danielle Ruhl and Nick Thompson spoke to Insider about married life.
  • They say they love dressing up in costumes — like hot dogs and corn — together.
  • Over the course of the series, Thompson dreaded Ruhl’s love of dressing up and dancing on tables.

One of the most talked about scenes from the wild second season of “Love is Blind” involved stars Danielle Ruhl and Nick Thompson arguing while dressed as hot dogs and corn stalks.

The couple – who got married in the season finale – revealed to Insider that they still regularly wear the two suits together at home.

“All the time,” Ruhl told Insider on the red carpet at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on Tuesday. “We probably have about 20 new costumes at this point.”

“It’s also fun because as soon as we have friends or family, everyone’s like, ‘Oh, we want to see the costumes,'” Thompson said. “And everyone ends up in costume!”

Thompson first discovered Ruhl’s hobby of dressing up when he visited his apartment and realized – looking around at the Guitar Hero and Nerf guns – that they had very different interests.

Ruhl told Thompson that his friends had a penchant for dancing on (and breaking) tables, to which Thompson replied, “Nobody would get on my kitchen table and break it.”

“Well, me and my friends do,” Ruhl replied. “We like to have fun.”

But when asked by Insider if he’s danced on tables since, Thompson admitted he’s tried it “from time to time.”

“I haven’t even done that since we got married,” Ruhl added. “It’s all him!”

And as for the Guitar Hero, Thompson said the pair were “negotiating” to find a place to store the video game instead of having it in the living room.

“I was like, ‘I guess you can put it in a trash can, you’re right – that sounds a bit obnoxious,'” Ruhl said. “It’s all about compromise.”

Ruhl also revealed that Abhishek “Shake” Chatterjee – the season’s most controversial star – has since been banned from the cast’s group chat.

“I had to block him on all forms of social media,” she said. “I don’t even know what’s going on in his life.”
