Amber Bowles

Ashley Petta Anthony D'Amico Married at first sight mafs

At the beginning of the pandemic I went on a serious Married at First Sight binge. Could not get enough of Dr. Pepper-Schwartz and Pastor Calvin Roberson. I binged Season 9 first and was totally mesmerized by the toxicity of the “basic Caucasian sex” between Elizabeth Bice and Jamie Thompson. Then there was Amber Bowles and Matthew Gwynne. I still feel for Amber and hope that Matt’s music career never takes off.

I moved backwards during my binge watch and no season seemed as good as Season 9. That is until I watched Season 5 MAFS in Chicago. Ashley Petta and Anthony D’Amico were perfect for each other. Remember when Anthony had a dream about the letter “A” the night before Dr. Pepper showed up? Just me probably, I remember the dumbest things. But still, they were super cute and one of the few couples from the show to still be happily married. They have more good news too!

Married At First Sight Greg and Deonna are having a baby

Hard to believe it’s been a year since Season 9 of Married at First Sight wrapped. If you haven’t seen it or aren’t fresh on the details, I highly recommend a binge. If I had to pick one word to describe Season 9? Mayhem. Absolute mayhem. From the secret life of Matt Gwynne to the virginity obsessed Iris CaldwellLet’s also not forget the angry, but horny, but not horny, and now she’s sad, wait is she mad again, roller coaster of Elizabeth Bice. But through it all there was one steady guiding force. None other than  Gregory Okotie and Deonna McNeill.

Deonna and Greg are truly too pure to capture in words. They’re the kind of realistic true love you don’t even mind watching. Even when all you really want is a moment like Matt catching a fly in that constantly gaping mouth of his. Seriously. That guy is so odd and I still can’t believe how long Amber Bowles stuck around for it. At the season reunion Deonna and Greg announced they were expecting…a new niece or nephew. Now they have an even bigger announcement!

Married At First Sight Recap- Finale Reunion

On last night’s episode of Married At First Sight, we finally got to see the update we have all been waiting for.  Two months after decision day, the eight cast members reunite to talk about life away from the cameras and experts and to reveal if they are still married.

This season we watched the highs and lows of four Married At First Sight couples on a journey to find love. I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t wait to see what happened after the cameras stopped rolling. On decision day, only two couples decided to remain married. It’s time to find out if anything has changed.

Married At First Sight Finale Recap- The Forever Decision

On this week’s episode of Married At First Sight, it was the day we all have been waiting for…DECISION DAY! After eight weeks of new adventures, explosive arguments, and complete desperation, we finally find out plans for the future. The Married At First Sight couples must decide if they want to stay married or get a divorce. This is going to get messy!

I have made it clear, my favorite couple is Deonna McNeill and Greg Okotie.  Keith Manley and Iris Caldwell get an honorable mention, although I don’t think they are suited for one another. But I am most interested in what Amber Bowles, Matt Gwynne,Elizabeth Bice and Jamie Thompson will do about their marriages. Honestly, if Amber chooses to stay with Matt, I may lose my mind. I just want to shake her and force her to use this last episode as her redemption. It’s not her fault she was paired with the nomad from hell. Let’s get straight to the Married At First Sight recap!

Married At First Sight Recap- She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not

On last night’s episode of Married At First Sight, there were only 5 days left in the experiment before the couples made a BIG decision. The retreat was coming to a close and we are one step closer to decision day. Something tells me this last week won’t be easy. Knowing this group, there will definitely be some drama.

In fact, one person finds out a shocking secret about their spouse. The viewers don’t need to find out a secret to know half of this group is doomed. Let’s get right into the Married At First Sight episode!

Married At First Sight Recap- Bear With Me

On this week’s episode of Married At First Sight , the experts arrange a couple’s retreat. This will give the group a chance to reflect on their marriages and open up about their issues. With only one week until decision day, it’s extremely important that they put everything out on the table. Given most of the couples are train wrecks; this should be an interesting finale. I don’t know if the cast is just desperate to be married or they are blinded by love. Either way, I want several of these people to find their self-respect and a good therapist. Let’s get straight to crazy and recap this episode!

Greg Okotie and Deonna McNeill decide to go out for a fun night of ax throwing with her sister and her boyfriend. Before Deonna arrives, Greg tries to find out the secret to getting his wife to let her guard down. He doesn’t get much information, but her sister says she can see her walls slowly coming down. I can see that Deonna is trying as well. I just hope that she can continue on the right path. Amber Bowles goes out to dinner with her friend, Raven and discusses her marriage. If this guy is straight, Amber you have a better chance of getting this guy to stick around than  Matt Gwynne. Even Raven can see that Matt is a lost cause. He flat out tells her that she deserves better. I agree, no one should have to beg someone to want to be with them. Amber breaks down crying as Raven encourages her to see her true value. Amber, this guy is way cuter than lanky vagabond Matt. What are you doing with your life?

Married At First Sight Recap- Secrets of the Past

On this week’s episode of Married At First Sight , the couples went deeper into the past to help them determine if they have a future together. With less than three weeks left to make a decision time is imperative.  The Married At First Sight experts ask the couples to visit childhood memories.

One couple has drama the ENTIRE episode, to the point where we are left wondering if they should call it quits before decision day. Let the minding of other people’s business begin  and start the Married At First Sight recap!

Married At First Sight Recap- Are You Committed?

On this week’s episode of Married At First Sight, the experts sat down with each spouse to find out what it will take for the couples to stay together on decision day. There are less than four weeks left in the experiment and at least 50% of the couples are already doomed.  As much as I enjoy being reminded my problems aren’t so bad, I can’t help but wonder why some of these people even got married.

You have one groom who barely comes home and another couple that argues at the drop of a dime. The other couples have issues as well, but they are fixable at least. If I were an expert I would make each Married At First Sight participant take mandatory psych evaluations and self-esteem courses. Nonetheless, let’s unpack the BS drama we witnessed inside this episode.
