love is blind Star Shayne Jansen has denied speculation he was drugged while filming the show.
Jansen starred in the second US season of the hit reality romance program, which launched on Netflix in February.
While his relationship with fellow actress Natalie Lee became a major talking point when it aired, some online commentators also expressed a belief that Jansen was using drugs that influenced his actions.
Appears in a recent episode of a video podcast The Viall filesJansen rejected the allegations.
“People thought I was doing cocaine,” he told the show’s host Nick Viall. “I’m miked all the time. Anyone would have heard me.
“It’s crazy to think that I was carrying cocaine and I was snorting lines and doing all this stuff in the bathroom when I had a mic.”
The reality star then shared that while he’d experimented with some substances in the past, he wasn’t using any drugs during the shoot.
“I have [used drugs]? Yes. On the show I haven’t,” he said.
“I have experience with some of them. Nothing that’s been injected into my body, but I think we’ve all had our times in our lives where we’ve done certain things.
He then went on to explain that his erratic behavior on the program was due to “severe, severe ADHD” and his anxiety and highly emotional feelings.
“On my wedding day, when I looked like I was coked up, I didn’t sleep for two days because I had no idea what she was going to say at the altar, no idea,” he explained.
