Love Is Blind season 4’s Micah and Irina anger fans?

Love Is Blind season 4's Micah and Irina in a pool

The infamous pods are officially open, and singles are again hoping to find their soulmate in Love Is Blind season 4. Although fans watch the show hoping to see people find real love with every season, they also wind up picking out "villains" that manage to ruffle feathers. In season 3, the audience united against Bartise and Cole. However, in this brand-new installment, show besties Micah and Irina have alienated their fellow castmates and viewers with what many have deemed "mean girl" behavior. 

Micah’s ascension to this not-so-covetous role actually started in the pods during the love "pentagon" dynamic that developed between herself, Kwame, Chelsea and Paul. Long story short, Kwame liked both Chelsea and Micah. Micah knew that, and in a competitive move, she pushed Kwame into professing his feelings for her, and he even offered her an early proposal of sorts. However, she backtracked and claimed to need more time to explore her other connection with Paul. 

After leaving Kwame gobsmacked, Micah spoke to Paul and told him she was sad to hear about his connection with Amber. Micah then asked him to stake his claim for her as she knows she’d want to marry him if he asked. Paul then pops the question and she happily accepts. 

If fans didn’t feel a way about Micah’s misleading tactics when it came to Kwame, they certainly felt strongly about how she acted when Paul broke things off with his other connection. As Paul spoke with Amber, Micah expressed her frustration to Irina that it was taking too long. Then, as a tearful Amber walked back into the ladies' apartment after being dumped, Micah seemingly got some enjoyment from witnessing her rival’s emotional state. 

As if that wasn’t enough, as Amber separated herself from the other ladies to have a conversation with Chelsea who was consoling her, Micah asked Irina to spy on these ladies to hear what they were saying, and Irina complied. As she listened to Amber cry, Irina sat there giggling. Chelsea spotted her, and then Irina ran away laughing. (Chelsea didn’t let this slide, and later called Irina and Micah out for their juvenile behavior.) 

Beyond Micah and Paul’s situation, Irina annoyed fans in another incident. Both she and her fellow contestant Bliss found themselves as Zack’s top two choices. On his birthday, Irina expressed to the other women that she wanted to bake Zack cupcakes for his special day. She was in need of candles for her surprise and turned to Bliss to borrow a few. 

Bliss felt the request was dense and inappropriate given she had already made cupcakes for Zack and the ladies were competing for the same man. Plus, it was no secret that the two women didn’t like each other. 

In yet another cringeworthy moment, Irina called herself being a good friend, consoling Jackelina as the latter wrestled with her decision between two suitors. As she listened to Jackelina cry, Micah walked up and made a disgusted face and inquired why Irina was sitting on the couch. Micah got closer and claimed she didn’t see Jackelina originally, but her nonchalant dismal of Jackelina’s tears rubbed fans the wrong way. They were further annoyed Irina found laughter in that moment. 

By the way, should we mention Micah's cheeky toast to Kwame when the two met at the pool party in episode 4? She raised a shot glass to him for his "failed proposal." She then turned around to flirt with him in front of their fiancés Chelsea and Paul. Micah failed to realize that Paul was in turn flirting with her bestie Irina. Yikes. 

It will be interesting to see in future episodes if the two women find themselves on a course of "redemption."
