Did Zanab Jaffrey purposely wait for D-day to say NO? 'Love is Blind' Season 3 star slams Cole Barnett
'I don't understand our wedding day,' Cole Barnett said on 'Love is Blind' Season 3 Reunion episode
Netflix just dropped the finale and the reunion episode of 'Love is Blind' Season 3. The show ended with some couples finding the love of their life while some parted with a life lesson or two. Zanab Jaffrey said a clear 'NO' to Cole Barnett at the altar and also slammed him for breaking her confidence and making her feel like less.
When asked whether she wants to marry Cole, instead of saying "I do" or "I do not", Zanab chose to explain their relationship. She thanked Cole for teaching her so much about herself and slammed the 27-year-old saying, "I think I have a really good idea about the type of woman that's gonna love you the way that Cole needs to be loved every day for the rest of your life. And, I think, you and I both know that is not me." She added, "You have disrespected me, insulted me, you have critiqued me." In front of family and friends, Zanab bashed Cole for "single-handedly" shattering her self-confidence. She then walked out of the altar with her friends clapping and cheering for her. Slowly, everyone walked out of the room while a shocked Cole remained at the altar. The whole thing has made viewers wonder whether Zanab's NO was pre-planned.
Was Zanab Jaffrey waiting for the wedding day to say NO?
Zanab's NO came as a shock to Cole. Even though he knew the marriage wasn't a sure thing yet, the public bashing was still an unexpected blow. After Zanab walked out of the altar, Cole cried his heart out and looked utterly shattered. They never contacted each other after the wedding day until the reunion.
Bartise Bowden asked Zanab in the reunion episode, "When did you know Zay, that you were gonna say no?" Zanab replied that she didn't know until she was at the altar. She claimed that she wanted to fight for their relationship even on the wedding day. Zanab said, "That's why I cried all wedding morning." Cole clapped back to Zanab's reply, saying, "If I was this horrible, the whole way through, but on the day of our wedding, you still care about me...why were you there?" Well, it seemed Zanab knew that Cole was not the one for her. She also knew that he was the reason her self-confidence reached a low point. Still, she chose to step onto the altar. Was that because she only wanted the world to know how bad Cole was to her? Maybe!
In the reunion episode, Cole cried as he said he was sorry for shattering Zanab's confidence. He further confessed to her, "I love you," and added that the only thing that didn't make sense to him was their wedding day. He said, "How do we get that from, like everything you and I had gone through?"
'Love is Blind' Season 3's drama has come to an end and fans are rooting for Netflix to deliver a Season 4.
