S12.E03: Nice to Marry You

Recommended Posts

Maybe Paige and the ex are both pregnant!!!   In the coming attractions...lol...Dr Do little asks Paige if they are using birth control.  She answers no and he rolls his eyes!

What a season!

IMO Chris is the worst person ever selected to be on Married at First Sight.  My jaw dropped when he announced to the bridesmaids that he was very adept at "pulling out".  So classy...so so classy.

Neither Haley or Jacob are ugly, IMO.  They are a moderately attractive couple.  In normal life, they are both very laid back people, yet both did an uncharacteristic thing and signed up to be married to a stranger.  They usually aren't the centers of attention in any given situation so nerves and discomfort knowing everyone was looking at them led to the extreme awkwardness we witnessed.  Jacob isn't confident like Ryan or outgoing like Erik.  Haley would never drape herself all over a complete stranger while drowning herself in liquor.   Maybe they are boring but I'd take that over the trainwrecks of some of the other couples.  

These two really want to be married.  Unless I missed it, I don't remember Haley going on and on about how important traveling is to her a la Olivia (even though she seems to have traveled much more extensively).  Jacob asked what kind of a cook she was.  Maybe he's willing to incorporate a few more things in his diet besides steak and eggs.   If passion can grow once they become more familiar with each other, then they might have a chance.   I'm not willing to write them off just yet.

Is it me or was it déjà vu all over again in the preview?  Chris reminded me of Brandon a few seasons ago down to cursing at everyone in the van and almost coming to blows with people.  Poor Paige.  She will join the club of women paired with scoundrels on this show.  It shouldn't be legal to do that to anyone, especially someone that sincere.  I refuse to believe that Chris didn't show himself to be a creep during the selection process.  Once again the ethics on this show is nonexistent.  And yet we watch anyway!

Perhaps in Jacob's way over the line creepy mind he wants a woman with a big nose because it makes him feel better about his big nose, LOL.

As someone who was young in the '80s I roll my eyes at young people that get fascinated with it.  For me it was both the best and worst of times and I have my baggage with it.  Jake seems to romanticize the superficial stuff like a little kid, but the '80s was far more than that.  Maybe he wouldn't love it so much if he had to live through it as a young adult.  I'd take the '90s over the '80s any day, but at least I lived through both as an adult.

I'm a product of the 60s.  Can't tell you how many people think anyone who came of age in that era did nothing but sex, drugs, and rock & roll, with the emphasis on drugs.

I think Haley is far more attractive than Jacob and she is only moderately attractive.  Add me to the table that thinks he's in competition for worst looking man on the series so far.  And like others, I feel that his creepiness only makes me see him as more unattractive.  It looks like Haley is already unsure about him.  Wait until she sees his house, LOL.  Already she seems far less "quirky" than he is and not so tolerant of his brand of quirk.  They already look awkward together - which doesn't bode well for her softening to the quirk.  I'm not too optimistic about them.

Yeah I hate it when people stereotype a decade.  It doesn't help that we have all sorts of TV documentaries that only encourage that.  I was a kid in the '60s but even I knew that a lot of people weren't "hippies" or do drugs.  Jacob's fascination with the '80s just seems so immature.  I loved the movies and big bands of the '30s and '40s when I was young, but I didn't dedicate myself to every little bit of kitsch and superficial trivia from those decades.  Plus thanks to my parents who lived through the Depression and WWII, I knew it wasn't all fun and games either.

I graduated from high school at the end of the 60s, but I LOVE anything from the 50s (also called Mid Century Modern).  It makes sense since that time period was my childhood, but it's interesting you like the big bands.  Listened to that music growing up because my dad loved it.  Made jokes about it at the time, but it must have seeped in and I listen to it a lot now.

I was a teen in the 80’s and so was my husband. We both are kind of stereotypical GenExers - great nostalgia for the pop culture we grew up with. We now have a teen daughter and tween son enamored with 80’s music and movies most definitely because of us. I don’t see the problem with liking that stuff, but Jacob is 10 years younger than me, so he would have been a young child in the 80’s, so it’s kind of weird that he’s into it. But that’s not even the weirdest thing about him - the diet, the nose thing and just his overall unemotional demeanor. Why did they pick this weirdo, or more accurately, why did they match him with someone so conventional? If they had picked a matching weirdo like Bennett and Amelia, maybe it would be ok, but this chick is not going to be down for this nonsense.....

I think Eric should have been matched with Haley; Jacob should have been paired with someone new and Virginia shouldn't have been picked for the experiment.  

I think in the long run Haley and Erik would be a better match. I think Erik wants this to work so bad. I think he thinks Virginia is good looking. Right now he laughing and drinking might be seen as nerves or fun. After a few weeks if she keeps up the drinking and wants to go out a lot, I think it will get old for Erik. I think he really wants someone who in the next few years will be a mom, maybe even a stay at home mom. I could see Haley who has a good career and likes to travel, but is a homebody after work being a better long term match. Plus Haley is the forever bridesmaid, 12 times? so she has married friends, Erik has married friends so a better match then party friends with Virginia. 

I hope it works out for both  couples. There still is hope. I think we will have enough drama with Chris so I hope the rest are as happy as they can be.

I don’t want to see the ‘experts’ self righteously gang up on him either. Even if production chooses these people they got behind choosing him so no excuses- they all suck. 

Next week, my dream is to turn on the show and it be Pastor Cal, Chris and Erik and Jamie. From the previews and the first meeting Erik does not seem to like Chris' crap so he and Pastor Cal could help Chris review the wedding clips.

Thank you! I mean, Paige is clearly getting screwed over by being paired w/ Chris, but so is Erik! The man has said a hundred times he comes from a "Traditional, Conservative Family."  So... he's siting across the table from his new mother-in-law w/ purple hair... & did you see his eyes bug out when Victoria said her sister was a lesbian? A teetotal homebody paired w/ a lush that likes to go EDM clubbing. Why, Show, why??? Meanwhile, Hayley just sitting there looking like a perfect match. 🤦🏾‍♀️

Unless she abandons that lifestyle. Many of us had our party-girl days. I used to LOVE to party, go to night clubs and drink. Until at age 30 I got drunk on Jell-O shots and then felt like DEATH for an entire week. It was horrible. I never got drunk since that time and that was well over 10 years ago. Now I’m a vegetarian runner who doesn’t touch liquor and who’s all about health! You’d have to shoot me to make me go into a nightclub or party - I value my early bedtime so I can be up at 5am for my morning run! Things happen in phases...hopefully it’s a just a phase for her

How absolutely stomach churning that Chris’ minister father uses his first on camera chat with Paige to tell her that it is her duty to be hot and ready for sex when Chris comes home for his hard day entrepreneuring...

How about Chris being ready with dinner on the table, bubble bath drawn and foot rub during tax season Jan through April when Paige comes home after a 15 hour day crunching numbers and possibly showing a home.....never going to ever happen.

I don’t get how season after season people still apply to be married when if you just watch seasons past , you can see the “ experts “ don’t choose the best people , they choose the best people for television . I can understand doing this show if the intentions of the matchmakers were genuine but it’s clearly not . Chris is the best the show can do ? I mean all it takes is him saying one or two words to see he isn’t a nice guy .

Jake & Haley will be a Brett & Olivia. Jake's big talking point when "getting to know family & friends" was all about his home. He described every feature of it. It's clearly his pride & joy. He's a d.i.y. guy & likely a saver & a homebody.  Haley is a contemporary chick & world traveler.  This may not work.  

I don't think Jake is horribly ugly like a lot of folks feel. I think he's awkward & nervous.  His friends & family worry because they know he's a geek. The saving grace could be if he's super nice & sweet to Haley & she appreciates getting her way in all matters as he relents to her preferences.

Chris’ personality is horrific.  I thought he was punking us with the way he was talking to Paige and her bridesmaids just wanting on the show for his 15min of fame.  But in the previews it shows that he and Paige have sex.  Ugh.  Paige is going to need so much therapy after this.

Did you notice his mother didn’t speak until the dad addressed her?  And then her advice is “don’t spend months and weeks being angry”.  WTFF?!  I’ve heard of don’t go to bed angry, but to spend months that way???  Chris’ dad must be as big of an ass as Chris is.

Watching Chris on this show is as entertaining as it would be to watch Harvey Weinstein on a dating show.  I wish they would delete all of their segments.  It is abusive and disgusting.

Jacob might not be everyone’s cup of tea but I think it’s a little harsh to describe him as ugly and creepy. I think he’s relatively attractive maybe not TV attractive and I think if he’s the nervous type anyway being filmed marrying a complete stranger when he doesn’t really even date very much might be a bit intimidating. I would save my criticisms for people who appear to be not nice humans and I haven’t seen any evidence of that yet.

What's the worst we've seen of Jake?  He eats steak & eggs every day and he's stuck in the 80s?  So what?  They both seem to be very sensible people so I'm sure they thought this whole thing out and decided they would do whatever it takes to make things work.  That means Jake doing what every man does and let his wife change him by maybe adding variety (and healthiness) to his diet and redecorating his house (and updating his appearance and getting him out in the world more).  Okay (dusting my hands off).  Next problem.

I wanted to support Jacob a bit, but then he was kind of leering at Haley & that bothered me. Then he goes to bed shirtless which I thought was premature. He was a body builder so I'm sure he's confident, but Haley was obviously not interested so I think that's why it was coming off creepy to some of us. She has an I'm-done-with-this-guy-already-and-would-be-moving-on-but-dammit-I-committed-to-this-so-am-stuck-for-now vibe.

Jacob has very specific interests which don't work for this, unless the other person shares at least some of them. But of course they chose Haley who is nothing like him. He needs to choose his own mate, which is understandably challenging. He's got his own little life happening in that home, & it will be difficult to fit someone else into it.

I love corgi's though & am looking forward to seeing his on screen again.

I also think Haley was a bad choice for this show. She admitted to shutting everyone down for stupid reasons right at the start gate, & I don't believe that would change easily with anyone on this show, even Erik. She also hates being just a bridesmaid so often - she's become the friends' joke & it makes her want to be part of the married club that much more. Be careful what you wish for, Haley.

Virginia & Clara are way too 'extra', but I can tolerate Clara's 'extra' (where'd the braid come from LOL) more than Virginia's (although I hate her pointy nails too). Even if the show is overdoing the drinking narrative, Virginia's obviously a sloppy drinker. She's very cute but it's already starting to show on her face. Hopefully she will settle down with Erik, though. I'm not writing this off just yet, because she's young & as others have said things could change.

Chris is a straight up degenerate (his father too), & I'm going to be very angry when the 'experts' act like they had no idea.

Not much more to add, other than RUNNNNNNN, Paige! I know it showed in the previews that she said they had sex every day without protection (which I hope we don't have to see or hear about), but there was something she said about being tested. I wonder if Chris gave her something, and I hope she wasn't taking a pregnancy test. The previews showed little clips of trouble in all the couples' lives, but we know how much editing they do.

Wedding night speculations - I have NO DOUBT that Virginia and Erik will share wedded bliss - and I think she will do all the driving; Poor Paige and her loser 'husband' are destined to because she is putting too much faith in this whole thing; I think the rest will wait for a while - at least until the honeymoon.

I've seen outlandish dresses...I've seen cheap wedding dresses.  And then, on one or two occasions (mine included) I've seen wedding dresses that were absolutely perfect for that particular bride.  Haley apparently doesn't like being the center of attention, so she picked a dress that had no lace, no tulle, no beads or crystals...nothing that would stand out.  I wouldn't even call it a dressy-dress.  If it was knee length she could throw a jacket over it and wear it to the office.

I've seen outlandish dresses...I've seen cheap wedding dresses.  And then, on one or two occasions (mine included) I've seen wedding dresses that were absolutely perfect for that particular bride.  Haley apparently doesn't like being the center of attention, so she picked a dress that had no lace, no tulle, no beads or crystals...nothing that would stand out.  I wouldn't even call it a dressy-dress.  If it was knee length she could throw a jacket over it and wear it to the office.

She's attractive, & it's really sad that was her choice. Even if there were slim pickings there had to have been something more flattering.

Just going to add at the end of this: . . . now and my father took the flask with him vibe!

I'm sure MAFS will be providing more than enough free alcohol.  Erik may not meet a sober Virginia until the 8 weeks is over...

Hello MAFS fans,

It looks like the producers wanted to avoid a boring season like last season. Some of the couples don't seem to have a prayer of working out. Lets match someone who likes to stay home with someone who loves going out and traveling. I agree that opposites attract but that doesn't mean they make good life long partners.

Ryan and Clara have potential to be a good couple. I wonder how many couples are influenced by the prospect of more lucrative TV time if they stay together?

Briana and Vincent are starting off on good foot. Recall almost all the couples at one time or another will have fights and issues. Doesn't mean they don't work things out and get back on the right foot.

Haley & Jacob

Not getting a good vibe from this couple. They remind me of season 4 Derek and Heather. The 80/20 rule applies to married. Couple should have 80% things on common but 20% where they have their own ideas, hobbies and interests. Jacob seems very one dimensional. Not sure if his wife is going to be impressed with his home. He is a very insecure man he told several people the very same thing.

Paige & Chris

Here is the blurb about Paige,

Paige (25) is determined to break the generational curse in her family and be the first to have a successful marriage. When she was only twenty-two years old, she purchased her own house. She’s stable in her career and is ready to start the next chapter in her life and be a wife. She wants to be Married At First Sight because she truly believes in the process and trusts in the experts to find her the right man.

She better get some voodoo dolls and garlic to break this curse. She will never trust the experts again. It took Chris no more than a few moments of air time for any to realize this guy is a certified grade A self-centered narcissistic jerk. The good news is he believes in God...the bad news is he thinks he is God. You know why people take an instant disliking to Chris? It saves time.

I don't get what kind of friends Paige has (hopefully the experts didn't pick her friends) to listen to this guy flat out say he doesn't think Paige is attractive and not his 'type. And you know what they call guys who 'pull out'? They're called fathers. Sorry for Paige she's not going to break any curse with that guy. In some ways its probably good there is one couple with outrageous problems so the other couples feel better about their relationship. Paige is a very pretty woman...I think she might be 'blacker' than he expected. As always I despise the men and woman who sign up to be married sight unseen and almost immediately throw in the towel. I'm sure he swore up and down that looks weren't the top issue with him.

Virginia & Erik

Even though we see problems down the road I think they have potential. Of course most couples get along well during the honeymoon. All couples have to overcome being loners and sharing a life with someone. If it was easy they'd never be a divorce.

She could lend the dress to Paige & she could do taxes in it.
