The two got married after falling for each other on Netflix’s Love Is Blind season 2 which began streaming in February. There was some friction between the two at the beginning of their relationship when Jones also fell for another woman in the pod. Jones ultimately had a decision between their co-star Mallory Zapata and McNeely, which in the end he proposed to McNeely after Zapata denied the proposal.
The tv show is an experiment where couples connect while dating in a pod and get engaged sight unseen. McNeely and Jones are the first from the series to get a divorce.
