    S09.E04: Stranger Love in Paradise

    Dullest honeymoon episodes yet but the rubber hits the road once reality sets in. Although most seasons at least one couple is already in serious trouble. I have to conclude its intentional that there are two black couples and white couples. It will mean black applicants will have a far greater chance of being picked than white applicants. Don't see many Asian or Latinos. I wonder if any applicants are willing to accept handicaps? I suspect the applicants choose the preferred race and probably smart to choose the same race since the shock of marrying at first sight is enough to handle. I didn't stick around for previews...

    Looks like the posts are more lively than the episode. Guess we can't have someone arrested on every season. That really is a bad omen.

    I agree you can't read anything into the decision day clips..it may not have even been from decision day. They always show the couples grimacing or crying or looking like a deer in the head lights. Its meaningless.

    So far it looks like these couples were well matched. They appear to be physically attracted to each other which makes for a good start although potentially boring season... I don't believe the producers or 'experts' deliberately put couples together they know aren't compatible. No update on the couples...they all seem to be having a great time. Its a big red flag if a couple can't enjoy themselves while on a paid vacation. I notice three of the couples the man is older which I always think is a good idea. The only thing exciting in this episode was the preview.

    S09.E03: Don't Kiss On the First Wedding Night

    I'm a male and I haven't noticed a significant greater amount of criticism of woman. I don't think anyone has ever been more criticized then Luke was last season. I imagine he's called out on the streets for being such a self-centered jerk. I think more females than males comment on this show...just a guess.

    S09.E03: Don't Kiss On the First Wedding Night

    Taking each couple at a time... Amber and Mathew. No real vibes...that's the short and tall of it. Elizabeth and Jamie. I was thinking he's already seen his woman naked which is more the Jon ever got with Molly. Will they sizzle or burn out? Dad time to let girl your little girl is thirty and a little bit on the naughty side. No virgin there... Iris Caldwell, 27 and Keith Manley, 27 I had the perfect answer when the mentioned about being a virgin. I would say honey this will be our 'virgin' first time with each other so its important we establish a bond first and I will do my utmost to be worthy of your virtue. In my head I'd be thinking its going to be hard to get laid... Deonna McNeill, 30 and Gregory Okotie, 32 Not good vibes...even this early on it can only go down hill.

    S08.E15: Finale Reunion

    How could a person's sexual orientation not be an issue when you marry someone of the opposite sex?

    S08.E15: Finale Reunion

    I thought all the ladies looked fabulous, well rested and more at peace regardless of the results... I've defended the experts and producers of the show because its very difficult to succeed, its amazing any of the marriages work. I do fault them this occasion for selecting Luke and I blame Luke for going through all the hoops, understanding (or perhaps not) that this involved another human being who was seeking a husband. It appears to me he is struggling with his sexual identity and he actually thought getting married at first sight would some how get him over it. I know the experts can't polygraph or water board someone but they can look at all social media. Didn't anyone notice he was interested in male relationships? He must have poured on the charm offensive during the numerous interviews. His attitude right from the alter was wrong. He was looking to see if he approved of the person they picked and he condemned it to failure right then and there. About the only genuine Luke moment we have is him at the alter already throwing the towel in. Kate personally isn't my type either shes almost too perfect...but I would be floored with her beauty and would hope she found me handsome enough (in my prime). Why does someone who desires a certain type of woman to be his mate waste everyone's time especially the person they involved. I don't think Kate has completely clean hands either. She went into the show claiming she was striking out dating yet only a month after the show lo and behold a new 'handsome' boyfriend and they are hitting it off well. Marriage is a relationship and relationships unlike love is conditional. One minimal condition is you treat each other respectfully. Luke treated Kate with contempt and she should have left. Not divorced maybe date... Will and Jasmine didn't make it...I believe they were respectful to one another for the most part. I hope for Stephanie's sake AJ is a good husband.

    S08.E14: The End or the Beginning

    Don't hold back, tell us what you really think. He's going to be roundly criticized by all, I can't imagine even his friends think he is a stand-up guy. Even his family must be thinking what a schmuck. His grandma probably flips him the bird.

    S08.E14: The End or the Beginning

    The final show had a bit more punch with four couples rather than two. However I still channel flip as I watch it. -Jasmine and Will I think Jasmine only agreed to stay married to see if Will was willing. Will wants to save the world he should remain single, being married will get in his way. Just as well they are parting ways there relationship was contentious the majority of the time. AJ and Stephanie, I hope for her sake he can be a good husband. I'm leaning toward him being too much to bear and they may be separated or divorced. If I was only 20 years younger I'd love a date she is a wonderful woman. Kate and Luke. Least surprise they are parting ways. Its one of the few times I think all involved were relieved. They should have opened the bubbly. I think the gay comment alluded to was just a tease and won't turn out to be a real situation. If there is something to it this is disastrous to the show. Not because he's gay (if that's the case) but he pretended to be otherwise. His personal mannerisms and affectations make my skin crawl. His hair looked particularly bad. I'd say out of a hundred guys with decent looks (not male model) a decent job decent temperament 99 would be thrilled to their toes with Kate and would bend over backwards to have a happy marriage. I've defended the experts in the past but this is a total blow. I pin the tail on them. I expect to see Keith and Kristine married next week. They truly seem to love one another and that can make things work.

    S08.E13: Doomed or Devoted

    Probably all the really good stuff occurs off screen...

    S08.E13: Doomed or Devoted

    That's funny you're watching by proxy! Its okay I thought the last episode was the finale. I hear a lot of comments about some monetary incentive if they stay married I hope its not a huge incentive that would dim my view of this show even more. I agree with others that the 8 week deadline is just a contrivance for the sake of drama. I would think a couple would only split if its obvious it won't work. I like Stephanie a lot (never noticed her eyebrows) I do worry about her future with AJ. Her concern is that with the cameras and crew gone he may lose all restraint. He appears to be oblivious to his behavior which is apparently internalized. I don't think she will drop him...if she ever does she needs to do a complete disappearing act. AJ doesn't seem the kind to take no for an answer. I don't have much hope for Will and Jasmine, I don't think either one has expressed love toward each other. They look like a couple that's already been married for 30 years. Luke and Kate...Kate and Luke. Its hard to keep my eyes off of Kate's beautiful face. She looks like a model but with a very healthy youthful glow. Her smile is magic. She seems to sincerely want a husband even if its Luke. I've met a lot of people in my life and they seem to fall into categories of personality traits. I don't think I've met someone I can say is like Luke. His affectation always seems to be off. I can't tell if he is looking in Kate's eyes when he speaks of if he is someone else for the cameras. I can't imagine they have a future because to the best of my recollection they've never spoke about the future. K&K will be fine...I'll be shocked if either one bails out. I'd still like to see Shacked up at First Sight same procedure but couples get married after the eight weeks!

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    The comparison of cultures that practices arranged marriages isn't very relevant to such an arrangement in a culture that doesn't practice it and then videos the entire experience. I have an idea for a spin off...Living in Sin at First Sight. Go through the same routine but couples decide if they want to get married at the end of eight weeks...

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    Final comments on all couples before the finale.... Will and Jasmine These two barely seem like friends never mind being a married couple. If they stay married they're only fooling themselves. I'd love to hear the experts defend these picks this season. I try not to be too hard on the experts marriage is difficult enough under normal circumstances. If it weren't for the drama of Kate and Luke we'd talk a lot more about this couple. I blame Will he's putting forth minimal effort. Are they really not having sex or are they hiding it too? AJ and Stephanie, I have a crush on Stephanie so I really hope AJ admits his issue and seeks help and he can have a wonderful wife at his side. I suspect they will stay married she will hope and pray with camera's gone he will become more normal. Not without help barring which I don't expect to see them married at the reunion. Keith and Kristine, I think they'll stay married. Best of the bunch Keith needs some maturing a bit more confidence and leadership. If he doens't have say so its because he's not leading. Kate and Luke. Can any more be said? Gives weight to the notion that people only go through this process and let someone else pick their mate because they're screwed up... Could neither one of them really find a suitable mate? Kate? I expect them to be relieved its over...
