Season two of Netflix’s reality romance series Love Is Blind is keeping us guessing and guessing and guessing, and the romance between Mallory Zapata and Salvador “Sal” Perez is included in that mix. The couple shared an immediate and deep connection from the start, but things spiraled just a little bit once they met each other outside the pods, after it became clear to Sal that Mallory’s connection with Jarrette might not be totally over, like he’d thought.
And the couple continued to keep us guessing on their current relationship status throughout the season. Here’s everything to know about Mallory and Sal. (Can we call them Mal and Sal? MalSal?)
This should go without saying, but: Major spoiler alerts for Love Is Blind season two ahead—including whether or not the couple got married in the finale.
Who are they?
Mallory Zapata and Salvador Perez are two contestants on season two of Love Is Blind. Mallory is a 32-year-old communications manager from Chicago. Her Insta bio reads, “📍Chicago • • Rosie’s mom 🐶 • Family, friends, food, fashion • Youth advocate.”
Her latest grid post, shared on February 11, shows a pic of the pod girls.
Salvador is a 31-year-old executive assistant from Chicago. His Insta bio says, “El Paso, TX ✈️➡️ Chicago, IL 📍 Musically inclined – Is love really blind?”
Sal’s latest Insta post is a reference to the show: “Pov you tell the producers you play the ukulele once,” he wrote in the caption.
What happened on the show?
Mallory and Sal bonded in the first episode of the season over their Mexican heritage and got engaged. However, Mallory also received a proposal from Jarrette. But she rejected that proposal because she had stronger feelings for Sal. “Since the beginning, I’ve connected with you so well,” Mallory told Jarrette. “We have so much in common, and I could talk to you about everything. It’s fun and I laugh with you a lot. I love talking to you all the time. You’re such an amazing person, but there’s always really been two people I’ve felt very strongly for and I feel my other connection I’m just drawn more to that.”
