Love Is Blind star Shayne Jansen denies claims that he was using cocaine during the show

Love Is Blind star Shayne Jansen has set the record straight on claims that he was using drugs – specifically cocaine – during the filming of the popular dating show.

The reality TV star, 32, made an appearance on The Viall Files on Wednesday and clarified that though he has used drugs in the past, it was not the case while he was filming the second season of the series.

‘People thought I was doing cocaine. I’m mic’d up the whole time. Everyone would have heard me do it. It’s wild to think that I was carrying cocaine on me, and I was snorting lines and doing all this kind of stuff in the bathroom when I’m mic’d up,’ he explained.

‘Have I [used drugs]? Yes. On the show I did not,’ The Wisconsin native firmly stated.

‘I have experience with a few 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,’ Jansen went on.

The blonde star – who was left at the alter by fiancée Natalie Mina Lee at the end of the show – sparked concerns among fans due to his erratic behavior and jittery mannerisms.

However, during the podcast with the Bachelor alum, he went on to explain why it would have been almost impossible for him to have been using drugs in the house.

‘They can literally hear you whispering. Every word you say. How could they not hear me do it?’ he added.

Jansen also said that he was ‘sick’ of people commenting snowflake emojis – to signify cocaine – under his social media posts.

‘I’m not naive to say I haven’t done it before in my past, like no, but not in the show, I’m not stupid. I’m not going to risk everything for that on the show,’ he said.

As for the real cause for his nervous mannerisms, he revealed that he has ‘severe ADHD’ and that his five-shots-of-espresso a day habit doesn’t help.

‘I have severe, severe ADHD, and you’re sitting in this tiny, little room for like three hours. It’s not 30 minutes. It’s like three hours, and you have cameras here, cameras here, staring at you while you’re confessing your love and you’re talking about all your deep emotions.’

‘It’s a very uncomfortable situation, right? You don’t get used to it,’ he explained.

‘I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t help my anxiety. I drink…this is five shots of espresso right here,’ he said, picking up his coffee cup and adding that he usually has five shots of espresso in morning, three at night, as well as a pre-workout drink.

Jansen then explained that his jittery appearance on the show had a lot to do with his anxiety and lack of sleep.

‘My wedding day where I looked like I was coked out of my mind, I didn’t sleep for two days straight because I had no idea what she was going to say at the altar, no idea,’ he continued.

‘My mom was in town, my whole family was in town. I was so embarrassed, my anxiety was going crazy,’ he stated.
