Throughout the first five episodes of “Love Is Blind,” 31-year-old Sal is taken on a complex journey as he falls in love with Mallory. There are moments where Sal is openly emotional, which is refreshing to see on a television show that pulls in such a strong viewership (via Parrot Analytics). When asked whether he had any concerns about how he would come across on the show once it aired, Sal said he was happy to have been given the chance to be so openly vulnerable.
“Now that I can say more about it, I’m like ‘I cry a lot, guys.’ But I like the idea of opening up that door for all men. I feel like it’s really important to open up that door and encourage men to take off the armor. Really be vulnerable, be emotional. That’s a sign of strength and that you are owning your emotions,” Sal said.
He added, “I don’t care if people take that and run with it and call me a sensitive or weak person or something. I don’t care about that. I know that there are men out there that feel like they can’t express themselves. And at least seeing my example in that way, I feel like that’s working on something bigger and that we could all, all of us as men, could excel in that direction a little bit more.”
Kyle agreed with Sal’s sentiment, as he frequently expressed his emotions on-screen as well.
