Ava Van Jenson Bio, Ethnicity, Job, Height, Love Is Blind

They say communication is the key to a healthy relationship. But that didn’t seem to be the case with Ava Van Jenson — a communication specialist. So, to make a whole new start and find a compatible husband, she joined Netflix’s Love Is Blind in 2023.

Keep reading this Ava Van Jenson Bio to learn more about her.

Ava Van Jenson On Netflix’s Love Is Blind

Season 4 of Love Is Blind hit the screen on March 24, 2023, and for the first time in its history, the singles were searching for love on the west coast. However, as always the theme remained the same — 30 new participants including Ava, entered the pod in search of love whilst only listening to their potential other’s voices.

A few weeks before the premiere, Ava took to her IG to reveal the big news, “I’m so excited to finally share that I’m on @LoveIsBlindNetflix, season 4! Join me to watch where my love journey takes me when Love is Blind premieres on March 24!”

As per her Netflix bio, she was looking to “secure a guy who is all in”  after “settling” in a previous relationship.  She considered herself a “wifey material” and wanted a husband who accepted her “super close” family  and her self-described “ugly laugh.”

Her biggest pet peeve in a relationship was a man who didn’t floss. Seems like Ava had issues with dental hygiene.

For those of you new to the show, Love Is Blind follows singles who introduce themselves through their respective pods, unable to see each other, but, able to communicate as much as they want. So, once they’ve decided, the potential husband/wife would then embark on a trip to a romantic destination, and meet each other’s family before deciding if they want to get married in the final ep or not.

Joining Ava for a chance at love were her co-stars Irina Solomonova, Marshall Glaze, Amber Wilder, Kwame Appiah, Micah Lussier, Zack Goytowski, Jackelina Bonds, Brett Brown, April King, Ava Van Jenson, Bill, Bliss Poureetezadi, Chris Clemens, Chelsea Griffin, Conner Fremmerlid, Jack Bonner, Jimmy Forde, Josh Demas, Juan Johnson, and 10 others.

Ava Van Jenson Ex-Husband

Ava Van Jenson was married to her ex-husband Peter Jenson from September 2, 2017, to 2020.

Three years after their divorce, Ava finally spoke up about how “race and religion” ended their marriage. It all began when violent protests broke out when the George Floyd tragedy happen in May 2020. “Buildings were burned down. People were crying out for help, an end to systemic racism,” she said.

For weeks she could not sleep. “I was grieving with our Black community. I was also deeply disturbed by the racist conversation on social media. But above all, I was terrified for the future of America,” Ava added.

But while she was talking to a mayor about her concerns and how to being equity changes in the community, she couldn’t believe what happen in her own circle. A priest at her church posted photos of people with their confederate and Betsy Ross flags armed in their AK-47s “to protest local businesses.” He supported what they were doing and taunted protesters to meet them with violence.

“I was shocked, horrified, and confused by everything. When I needed God the most, I couldn’t even trust my church leaders,” Ava shared. So, she asked her husband (now ex) at the time if they could go to a different church. Sadly, he told her if she didn’t go to his church (which his parents built), he would “resent” her. And if she didn’t remain Christian Orthodox, he would divorce her.

The two then visited marriage counseling with an Asian therapist. However, the counselor was less concerned about race and religion issues. “She said I was the problem in the marriage. It seems she was a Republican broad leader in WA,” Ava said.

Thus, divorce was inevitable.
