The Second Season of Married at First Sight Was Sure Different Than the First
Well kids, another season of Married at First Sight officially wrapped last night with the conclusion of the reunion double-header, bringing this roller coaster ride of drama and only sometimes cuteness to a close.
When the second season was announced early this spring, I foretold that I didn’t think I would probably get as attached to these couples as I did to my first loves of this show, Jamie and Doug and Courtney and Jason—and sadly, that proved to be true. I didn’t like all six people individually as much as I mostly liked the first batch, and they just didn’t convince me that they could make it as couples as much, either.
And, considering all three of them were in splitsville by the time they joined us last night on the Loveseat of Hate, I guess they also didn’t do a great job of convincing themselves: Davina and Sean announced their breakup during the regular season’s very dramatic Decision Time, Jessica served Ryan with a restraining order after he supposedly threatened her on various occasions—including under his breath into his hot mic while taping the reunion show, prompting the show’s producers to give her a security detail—so they’re more than dunzo, and Jacklyn and Ryan, who provided us with the most frequent bouts of sweetness of any of the couples, just kinda fell apart. By the time their therapy sesh was over last night, we had some hope that they would try and pull it together for one last go—but according to People, that fell apart, too. Sigh.
In this morning’s breakdown of all we had gone through with this season, Shoppist‘s Emily Goulet defeatedly declared the show Divorced at First Sight and vowed that we would not watch the next season—but we both know we will. How about you?
