With a profession in sales, a love for athleticism, and a strong desire to find emotional connection, Izzy’s journey in the pods is one to watch.


Ismael “Izzy” Zapata Jr., 31 years old, hails from the bustling city of Houston, Texas, where he serves as a dedicated sales representative. 


On his Instagram account, with the handle @izzyzapata_, Izzy shared his excitement for the Love Is Blind Season 5 premiere, inviting viewers to join him on his quest for love.


Netflix’s official Love Is Blind Season 5 biography offers a glimpse into Izzy’s dating history and his aspirations for a lasting connection. Izzy’s proactive approach to dating shines through as he shares that he has been going on two to three dates a week for the past year and a half, yet he hasn’t encountered his ideal match. He attributes this to being often “not on the same page emotionally” with his romantic partners.

Izzy’s dream girl embodies athleticism, with the ability to share workouts at the gym and enjoy a game of sand volleyball on the beach. Physical attributes like blonde hair and beautifully colored eyes are a plus, but his top priority is finding an “open-minded, good communicator” who can love him unconditionally.
