Maybe it was about her being female.

If that were the case then why would he even do this show, knowing that he was going to be matched with a female?  He had a job so I don't think he needed the money and a place to stay, like Matt did.

People go on reality shows for a variety of reasons, some of which we will never understand or be able to relate to.

That's interesting.  There was something that he didn't like as soon as he laid eyes on her.  Now I'm wondering if it really was about her being black.  

Huh? What did I miss?

I have never witnessed that much weave hair on one person. That has to be 80 bundles of hair she's dragging around.

In that Reddit post, the part I don't understand is "...Brandon and 2 other grooms match backed out 30 days prior to shooting... "

What does that mean?  I'm surprised about Taylor though.

Her hair looked horrible. It was uneven and pulled back on her scalp...giving her a five head.

I do like her upbeat personality and am going to withhold judgment till I see the show.

Are they trying to say she is just a lab tech and not a grad student?

The groomsman on Reddit also says she has a suspended license, so I assume she doesn't drive for Uber and Lyft.

I think that's bad grammar by the groomsman. I think it should say "Brandon and 2 other grooms' matches backed out 30 days prior to shooting ..." meaning that Brandon (and two others - wonder who?) was supposed to be matched with different people who backed out. Taylor was a last-minute substitute, so they didn't vet her properly (which is shady of the show).

Wow, if all of this is true I guess she is going to bump Mia down to 2nd place in most deceitful bride.  That’s sad because I really liked Taylor.

Taylor confuses me.  Is she a research assistant?  I used to work in research and a research assistant doesn't need a masters or a Ph.D.  In human subjects research, the research assistant interviews research subjects and does follow ups with them.

Why are we taking the groomsmen account as the gospel truth? First Brandon filed for annulment before the show aired, even though we know it's against the show's rule. Now his groomsman who I am very sure signed some form of contract is singing. I just get the vibe that Brandon and his crew are trying to control the narrative. They know he looks bad so they are on a smear campaign. They seem very immature. We shall see what really happened.

There is an attempt to make this girl look bad. We would keep watching Brandon and his crew 🧐..

Good Lord, I got the vibe that Brandon did not like Taylor on sight. The thing he did with the cake and the garter seemed like passive aggressive disrespect to me.

I understand not liking your bride but only a giant jerk smears her good name afterwards.

I mean even if Taylor is not research scientist....who cares? She is a brand ambassador which is the the same job that Brandon holds

As far as couch surfing...DC is expensive and the girl has three jobs. People do tend to stay with their parents longer in areas where cost of living is high. It is not like she is lazy and watching TV all day.

Also, Brandon really is no Master of the Universe himself.

I will with withhold final judgment until I see what happens on the show, but I have never seen anyone be as low key hostile upon meeting their bride like Brandon. Even Luke was somewhat civil upon meeting Kate.

Yeah I agree. I am very interested to see this season play out, but it's always more interesting to me hearing the behind the scenes spoilers, & then what happens after decision day.

Honestly, I feel like Brandon didn't like Taylor at first sight. I feel like sooo many other black grooms on MAFS that he expected someone different or of an entirely different race/nationality. (Will wanted someone like Meagan Good/Halle Berry but he was paired with Jasmine. Tres wanted a biracial woman, and he was paired with a fully black woman, Vanessa. Tristan wanted a biracial woman who wasn't too dark basically.) There was something in his energy when he saw Taylor that just immediately deflated. I'll hold off judgement regarding the annulment, but I'm curious to see how it will play out.

In fairness, if I were matched with someone who claimed one job and then it turned out they did a different job, I would be annoyed. I'm not sure if I would be annoyed at the show or at the person or both, but I would be annoyed. Remember Jamie was annoyed that Elizabeth lied about her job (she didn't even have one when she was cast - which is fine, I've been unemployed and wouldn't judge someone for it, but just say that from the get).

I suspect Taylor does do research but the level of research she does has been exaggerated. I was a research assistant in the psych department (my major) in undergrad (I was "one of the names to contact for info about the study," as someone posted in that screenshot upthread; that doesn't mean anything in terms of seniority). It was a good resume booster for my very first resume, but I wasn't out here making breakthroughs about human behavior. I was a student. I would administer the study to individuals and log answers and do data entry. 

There are lots of different tiers of work in a research setting and my guess is she does lower-level work than the show would have us believe. This may not even be Taylor's fault - it may be that she said "I do research at John's Hopkins" and the show ran with "research scientist.") 

I'm not trying to slam Taylor - neither Taylor nor Brandon is better than the other to me right now in show time - I'm just pointing out that there are lots of possible levels to working in research, and it may be that Taylor's not on a senior one yet. (If she doesn't have an advanced degree, she's almost certainly not at a senior level. See also: "child therapist" Katie.)

All this is true but it probably would not be a deal breaker if he had liked her in the first place. 

Again, Brandon might be an innocent victim in this...I guess we will have to wait and see.

Correct.  I used to hire research assistants, and they were not required to have a MA, they did exactly what @Empress1 just said.  It's probably the show that built up her title to make her look more interesting, not Taylor herself.

I don't get the pushing cake in the face as passive aggressive, I've seen that countless times at weddings, and never thought it was a big deal, it was more along the lines of being funny, but these days every move a person makes gets scrutinized.  I thought Brandon was more into himself and being on TV than he was into Taylor.

I thought Brandon was a little too aggressive grabbing a hunk of cake and he looked like he wanted to slam that into her face. That seemed to me to be the only time he had any energy. He does NOT like her!

I'm enjoying all of the insights, shows that we can all watch the same shows and see things differently, depending on experience.  I didn't see Brandon's throwing cake in Taylor's face as being aggressive, because when I was in college, that's what happened when it was your birthday, Cake smushed in face was standard and I never saw it as aggressive or hateful .  Maybe it's different when a man does it to a woman, don't know.

I think a large portion of the people on this show and on reality shows in general go on reality TV to build their profile, to become social media personalities.  People hate someone on the show?  You'll have others who will label those folks at "haters" and follow the person out of spite.  

One thing the experts really need to do is have more counseling with the couples, especially since many of them did not grow up with fathers in the home, and the show is pushing "traditional" male/female marriages.  For instance, Michael said he was the first person in his family to get married (?)  Did he have other family members who had "traditional" marriages?  Did he have friends whose parents were married?  Questions like those.

Would it matter?  Maybe yes, maybe no.

In my case it was a sisterly trait as I went to an all woman's college in the 1970's.

But I think Brandon is immature with a capital I.

I'm with the rest of you withholding judgment until we see what actually happens. Yes, Taylor could be deceitful (wouldn't be the first time we've seen it on this show), but that doesn't explain Brandon's immediate reaction to and treatment of her at the wedding. And we all know how these reality shows like to tinker with people's professions. I'm curious to see when and where it all  goes irreversibly downhill.

A.  I'd care.  A girl who starts a marriage by lying - forget what she told production - to her husband is untrustworthy, enough for me to untie the marriage.

B. Yeah, she was a brand ambassador for a bourbon company.  Wonder how she got her license suspended?

C. I guess she checks this forum because I think she deleted the Linkedin account I quoted in the Ep thread.  In it, she's listed as a "Data Assistant".  She's below a grunt researcher, she's probably just entering data into a spreadsheet and getting people coffee.  Not a bad job if you're trying to get a foot in the door but lying about it looks bad.  I would respect someone saying that they're still a student but took a grunt job in the department she hopes to make a career of. 

On her MAFS bio page she calls herself a "Research Scientist".  She ain't no scientist.

Like others, I'm going to suspend judgment on Taylor for now, but I can believe that some of the grooms' matches were last minute and therefore not of the best quality.  It's obvious to me that Mindy and Zach are a mismatch in addition to Brandon and Taylor, so this wouldn't surprise me at all.  Even just reading the short bios of these people so far I'm scratching my head as to why some of them were matched.  So far the only match that seems intentional and genuine is the one between Austin and Jessica.  Otherwise, they could have rolled dice and done a better job of matching.

Took one for the team & listened to the last part of Auntie's tea spilling. Here's a quick synopsis of what she said:

-She received an email from Michael's ex gf, who knows Meka & was also at the casting but backed out because of too many red flags reg. Michael.

(My assumption is she knew Michael was there & chosen- maybe someone can clear that up).

-Auntie validated the person's identity, that she was in a relationship with Michael, & Auntie says she saw her in the casting show.

-The ex feels sorry for Meka having been matched with Michael.

-Michael's ex saw tons of red flags while dating him.

-Michael was unemployed in 2018 driving Uber p/t, had no idea what to do in life, & was living with his mom; he was unable to pay when taking the gf out & asked her for gas money while out.

-When she was hanging out with Michael's friends the friends would say that Michael is "under cover". 

-One of her friends said when she was dating Michael he was "zesty" (look it up on Urban Dictionary).

-The ex said Michael hangs out with more women than men & has feminine traits.

-Auntie then went on a rant saying there's nothing wrong with being gay but be true to yourself & don't marry someone who is hetero.

-Auntie also said she "has not received any email in (her) box about Meka passing herself off as something she's not".

-The ex also said she (allegedly says Auntie) had a restraining order out on Michael.

-Auntie said she has a lot more info in the email she won't disclose because she doesn't want Lifetime coming after her.

Take it all for what it's worth. Anyone know Auntie's track record with this type of thing?

And that's the crux of the matter.  Could just be a jealous ex girlfriend spouting off.  "Auntie" wants to get paid to run her mouth, just like the rest of these internet gossip people.  I don't blame her for wanting to make the money, but that doesn't mean I believe her.  We'll just have to wait and see how things play out.
