Well I sort of believe aunty about the gf's claim because before the show started, an alleged gf of Micheal made some comments on marriedatfirstsight reddit page. She talked about Micheal being political and full of sarcasm. The sarcasm checks out based on what we see. She wished Meka goodluck because she would need it with him.
I watched the Episode 3 review and auntie is based in the DMV area. It seems she has info on most of the participants even Meka and she is disappointed in the selection of most cast members. That's my take..
