On last night’s episode of Married At First Sight, the couples had a week until decision day! Hopefully these train wrecks couples can find out any unanswered questions, before they decide to commit or split. Luke Cuccurullo finally realized he was on national television and only has one week to appear to have made an effort in his marriage. He actually takes Katie Sisk on a date in public to the ballet to see Romeo and Juliet. Kate has had a change of heart and feels back on track with her marriage. Insert side eye here. Will this new found happiness last? Or will it everything come crashing down when a HUGE secret is revealed tonight? This Married At First Sight episode is one to remember, trust me!!!!
Jasmine McGriff attempts to seduce her husband, Will Guess with lingerie and a home cooked meal. Here we go again with her interview questions. I don’t think Jasmine has quite mastered the art of conversation. There is a way to ask someone questions without it seeming like you are grilling them. Nonetheless, it actually seems like she listened to Will and understood his life goals a little better. Chile, I have never seen someone struggle so much (besides Kate) to make someone think they are sexy. Either you got it, or you don’t! The chemistry simply isn’t there.
Jasmine decides to make this even more awkward to do the kissing exercise that the experts suggested. She is hoping it leads to sex, but I can tell it is going nowhere. Will even admits that it was awkward and didn’t feel organic. Jasmine, girl, let me give you a lesson or two in the art of seduction. You seem like you are reading from a timed checklist, rather than going with the flow. That is not attractive nor is it sexy. Had you dressed in that sexy librarian outfit and sat and had an intellectual conversation and let him take the lead, you may have gotten somewhere (if he actually liked you)… Ugh, this scene was just sad. SMH
The couples go out to dinner with Pastor Calvin Roberson. The topic of love comes up and half the couples feel that they are well on their way to getting to that stage. Can you guess which men sat quietly? Of course, Will and Luke did everything not to make eye contact during that discussion.
Pastor Calvin informs the couples that they will have a chance to have a second honeymoon in the Poconos. The only catch is that all the couples will be in ONE house, together. I had to go pop some popcorn for this! This is definitely a recipe for disaster. Can you imagine the battle of egos, starring crazy AJ vs. the narcissist Luke? Is it bad that I am already laughing….
Kate calls Dr. Pepper Schwartz to drop a bombshell she has been hiding. Apparently, she and Luke have been having sex since the honeymoon!!!!!!!!!!! Whatttttttttttttttttttttttttttt. Not only that, she reveals that he will get weird immediately afterward and ignore her for hours. Okay, I… AM…DONE! What more does this man have to do for you to leave him alone? Between the “repulse”/”dead inside” gate and this new weird sex manipulation game, I am ready to jump through the tv and shake Kate.
He has screamed to the high heavens he isn’t attracted to her. And the sex has to be secret. I am no longer invested in either of them. She wants Dr. Pepper to counsel them, but it seems like they both need DEEP INDIVIDUAL counseling. I think it’s time we all come to grips with the fact that Kate is officially the queen of desperate….SMH.
Jasmine and Will are driving to meet the other couples and you can cut the tension with a knife. This is just painful to watch. Will, just admit you are not really into your wife. We only have a week left, must we drag this out. He apologizes for his delivery and reemphasizes the positives about the night. Jasmine clearly is sex deprived and ready to tear her hair out. But things are smoothed out for now.
Kristine Killingsworth and Keith Dewar are the first to arrive at the house. It’s very intimate and cozy. I think it would be great for close friends, but I am not sure with this crowd. I guess there will be nowhere for Luke to run from Kate after having sex there. AJ Vollmoeller and Stephanie Sersen are the last to arrive and he is already very agitated. He walks in the house and looks like he is ready to kill everyone. The energy was fun before a soon-to-be drunk AJ walked in. He seems hell-bent on being as negative as possible. I guess he realizes he won’t be able to hold it together for a whole weekend in such close quarters.
Things get really weird as AJ begins making inappropriate jokes and starts drinking like a fish. He even asks Luke “Are you a top or a bottom?” and compares him to teen wolf. I literally just spit out my water and laughed hysterically. Whoa, someone canNOT handle their alcohol or their crazy at this point. Kate instantly puts her arm around her husband protectively. This made me laugh even harder. She can’t even stand up to her husband. I doubt she will confront the hot mess which is AJ. Stephanie must have known this was coming since she went and hid in her bedroom. I sense a trip back to lonely dinnerville in someone’s future.
Luke runs to his bedroom after AJ slaps him on his butt. Will and Jasmine are the last ones to call it a night after they realized there was no talking to AJ. The next morning AJ acts like the night from hell never happened. Jasmine thinks AJ is lucky his wife went to bed early, so she wouldn’t be mad. I actually think she went to bed to avoid the embarrassment she knew was coming.
Teen wolf Luke and Kate go for a walk outside. The scenery is beautiful. He gives her compliments and stares weirdly into her eyes. I have a feeling things are about to take a turn. Kate was too scared to talk about her conversation with Dr. Pepper and opts to tell him later. This is not going to end well. I’m sure Luke will use that as the reason he wants a divorce. I have never wished for a couple would just break up. So badly. Lifetime needs to pay for the viewers to have therapy after being subjected to them every week.
Side note- Seriously, this probably was the most entertaining Married At First Sight episode of the season!
TELL US – WERE YOU SHOCKED TO FIND OUT THAT KATE AND LUKE HAVE BEEN HAVING SEX? WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT THE DRUNKEN SHIT SHOW THAT WAS AJ? DO YOU THINK IT WAS A GOOD IDEA FOR THE MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT COUPLES TO STAY UNDER ONE ROOF? DO YOU THINK WILL IS INTO HIS WIFE OR MAKING EXCUSES?
