Deonna McNeill and Greg Okotie tied the knot as strangers in 2019 on Season 9 of Married at First Sight. This couple is one of my all-time favorites. The road to decision day wasn’t a smooth one, however.
Greg had trouble getting Deonna to open up to him. Deonna felt like Greg was always in his head, overthinking everything. Deonna and Greg were discussing expanding their family last season on the Married at First Sight spin off Married at First Sight: Couples Cam.
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 Caldwell. Let’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!
Lifetime’s Married at First Sight has a new spin-off show on the way called Married at First Sight: Couples’ Cam. The couples will film the series themselves.
This might be in response to the current quarantine situation. Or maybe this was the plan all along and eliminating the camera crew as just a smart move for the budget. Either way, a press release from the network promises: “highs, lows, humor, drama and domestic life.” Here’s my question though, if they’re filming this show themselves, will we actually get to see the drama? Couldn’t they just shut the camera off when they argue?
On last night’s episode of Married At First Sight, the couples were their last few days of their honeymoons. Elizabeth Bice claims that she and Jamie Thompson finally had sex. Wait a minute, something is off. They didn’t have sex when she was in a see-through nightie or when she was naked??? Apparently, they had a threesome with Elizabeth’s Aunt Flo. Eww…. Someone make it make sense! This is gross given they are virtually strangers. Jaime even said I love you during sex. Ummm… what?? Wait a damn minute! You mean to tell me they had period sex AND said the “L” word after knowing each other 5 days. Something is very weird about them.
Keith Manley and Iris Caldwell are definitely enjoying their honeymoon. They both seem to be adventurous and are connecting more day by day. Matt Gwynne and Amber Bowles also seem to be enjoying their time together. Until I see someone in Matt’s family, I can’t take him seriously. Who goes on national television and gets married without warning his family? Do they sit at home all day churning butter? I would think the family would find out rather quickly. What is the point of hiding it?
