Love Is Blind star Marshall Glaze has been blinded by a new love and he does not want it to be private. On 1 September 2023, he introduced his new girlfriend, Dr. Chay Barnes, also emphasizing that she is “the perfect woman.” So, naturally, it is our job now to tell you all about her.
Meet Chay Barnes, Love Is Blind Marshall Glaze GF
Marshall Glaze, after having split with fiancée Jackie Bonds not long after they left the pods, brought back a new girlfriend, Dr. Chay Barnes, on season four of the Netflix After the Altar. The marketing manager introduced Chay to costars Tiffany and Brett Brown in the series filmed earlier in 2023, while discussing plans to mark their first anniversary. “In July, Chay and I will have been together for a year officially,” he said. And, indeed they celebrated the occasion on 15 July 2023, s year after Marshall asked Chay to be his girlfriend.
Marshall literally could not stop talking about her. He said she is the “yin to my yang” and the complete opposite of him. That is why he said they “mesh” so well. Not stopping there and after more, he said what he had with Jackie is no compare to his bond with Chay.
Apparently, Chay is Marshall’s first serious girlfriend since filming Love Is Blind. Yet, he dated a few others. He opened up on the April reunion episode that he went on one date with fellow castmate Kacia Clark after filming.
At this point, one need not raise a question of if they are still together. For they most certainly were as of September 2023.
Marshall went public with this relationship in May 2023. First, it began in August 2022 with their flirty exchanges on each other’s IG posts.
