If you’ve missed Married at First Sight, read Daisy’s catchup, below, and her predictions for what lies ahead (thank you, Daisy!).
So MAFS viewers, it’s probably not long now to the end, when it will be revealed who makes that final stay/go choice. Then I will jump on google to see who lasted beyond that.
I doubt Alene will let Simon go without ten sessions at Relationships Australia. No wonder she got Simon to cut his hair. Her hen-pecking couldn’t get through the curls. Last week Simon had to jump through more hoops, such as shopping at Ikea, constructing a dining set, getting grilled by Alene’s girlfriends, cooking with his in-laws then getting poked and prodded awake.
Vanessa and Andy are a bit boring. There are no sparks there, individually or as a couple. They haven’t been a slow burn as the sexperts say, and barely even a dinner warmer. They might last after the show but we aren’t seeing signs of it.
Susan and Sean have been madly, deeply in love since first clapping eyes on each other, but it’s unlikely they will overcome the differences in location and life-style. Susan loves the beach, cafés, friends and family but Sean needs to work the farm right across the opposite side of the country. In spite of it being a doomed relationship, Susan and Sean have been making the most of this time to gaze into each others’ eyes, and bill and coo sweet words.
Susan wasn’t fairing so well in the girl group though and made the mistake of stepping up to apologise to the queen bee twins. Two queen bees are scarier than one. Anyhow, her backhanded apology earned her a dressing down and a back-handed apology acceptance. It’s OK though because Sharon said she is only aggressive because she “feels so much”. That’s her excuse and we might all use it now. Anyway Susan won’t be invited to their baby showers.
I am waiting for stuck up Sharon to notice Nick actually is a bogan. Even when she saw him wearing her hair extension mullet, she didn’t see it.
I started with a friendly attitude toward the girls from Manji, but they seem like mean girls, even without the whips. The twins both have condescending attitudes and behaviour towards Nick and Jessie.
Jonesy outed Cheryl with his “Gotcha” when she couldn’t bring herself to kiss him. But it didn’t stop him from putting himself through the nightmare visit with Cheryl’s bastard dad.
I am sure Cheryl’s dad was bunging on, but I bet he didn’t have to dig deep for the role. McBastard Dad lambasted Jonesy for his casual attire, in spite of Cheryl wearing shorts and thongs herself.
BTW I was team Cheryl when Jonesy rocked up 9 minutes late and THEN wanted to shower and change. The popular “Hey Jonesy’s here” Jonesy leaves Cheryl but still goes to the dinner, where he secretly hands Sharon and Nick the news that Cheryl was a bitch and he has been sick over it. This gives Sharon a good sense of righteous indignation and ammunition against Cheryl, which she wasn’t allowed to use because Jonesy swore them to secrecy. The sexperts were team Chezza there.
Anthony and Nadia are a fascinating pair. Nadia recognises Ant is an arrogant know-all but says “it’s a decision to make it work”. Betcha anything this is a career decision. Anthony gets a glimpse of how Nadia “rolls” when she lays on the beach sunbaking when they have guests coming for dinner.
(Team Ant on that one. I cooked all week last week for an arvo tea party on Sunday). Ant sees Nadia’s flaky side but thinks he can fix it. Like a good controlling, narcissist he will manage his arm candy wife. Nadia clearly doesn’t like Ant and there is a “no you don’t buster” beneath her charmingly sweet amusement. At dinner Anthony brags about his uncanny sense of direction and throws in his little belittling remark at Nadia. It will be one of many if she stays with him. Which she won’t.
Well that was just my little recap summary. I will leave you with the trivia fact that MAFS has been rating really well so we can expect it to be made again next year. That means they will soon be calling for cast, so if any of you singles out there want a hubby, wife or just a chance to get on telly and would like to be matched with someone completely unsuitable, get your applications ready. 😉
