Who is Myrla?

Myrla, 34, is from South Texas, where she grew up. Her bio states that she comes from humble roots and is currently a leadership coach. Myrla has a lot of faith in what the experts do, seeing that her own career has allowed her to understand the nuances of the vetting process and the choices made by the panel.

This has led her to believe that she will undoubtedly find the right partner on the show.

What is Myrla looking for in her future husband?

Myrla is looking for an ambitious, caring, confident, faithful, and loving man when it comes to her partner. As reported by Monsters and Critics, Myrla has gone through her own fair share of hard times, having dealt with past traumas. Growing up in a home with domestic violence, she wants to create a peaceful and loving life, unlike the one she experienced as a child.

She has addressed her trauma, especially domestic violence and food insecurity. She has turned it into a driving force to create a future for herself where these cycles are not repeated. She has also been open about her vulnerability, stating that she doesn't want a relationship where she puts in time, energy and effort, only to have her husband walk away at the end.

Who have the experts paired her up with?

The expert panels have paired Myrla with Gil, a 35-year-old firefighter from Colombia. Gil's bio mentions that he is rather keen on starting a family and as a hopeless romantic, wants to build a loving relationship with his partner.

They seem like a great match on paper; we have our fingers crossed!
