Watch: Love Is Blind's Bliss & Irina Got Into Fight Over Grilled Cheese

Warning: This story contains spoilers for the first eight episodes of Love Is Blind season four.

It turns out Cupcake-gate was just the tip of the iceberg.

Love Is Blind season four cast mates Bliss Poureetezadi and Irina Solomonova got into a confectionary kerfuffle when Irina attempted to steal a candle from Bliss' birthday cupcakes for Zack Goytowki, who both women were vying for. 

But in an exclusive interview with E! News, Bliss revealed there was even more to the Irina story that didn't make the show.

"Earlier that day, she used the ingredients for my cupcakes to make herself a grilled cheese sandwich," Bliss said. "The eggs were scrambled, so I had to go request more ingredients. We literally had a conversation 20 minutes before that. I had come up to her and said, 'Let's just have peace,' and then those things were happening."

Between the sandwich and the cupcakes and all of the messy drama in between, Bliss wishes a little more context had been given to Netflix viewers about what really went down.

"It seems like my reaction is really strong to the candle thing, but there was a whole other thing that happened," the 33-year-old noted. "I probably would have given her a candle if she had just been like, 'Yes, let's have peace.'"

The Cringiest Love Is Blind Moments Ever

Though Zack initially chose Irina, their relationship quickly fizzled out once they left the pods for Mexico. So, shortly after that break-up, Zack decided to rekindle the spark with Bliss.

"He reached out to the producers and then the producers reached out to me," Bliss explained. "We didn't have each other's phone number or anything like that. During our break-up, we weren't like, 'Let's trade phone numbers!'"

Once Zack and Bliss finally met face-to-face, their relationship hit the accelerator and Zack ended up proposing to Bliss just days later—which she was not prepared for.

"I didn't see that coming," Bliss admitted. "That didn't enter my mind. I was wondering why our story was still being followed. I thought maybe they just wanted to follow it outside of the normal structure of things. I was absolutely shocked."

Though Bliss ultimately said yes, she did have one regret about the experience, saying, "I totally would have worn a different outfit if I knew."

The first eight episodes of Love Is Blind season four are available to stream now. The next three hit Netflix April 7, with the season finale dropping April 14.
