Beginning on December 1, the new show I will recap will be Married at First Sight. You may be wondering why I’ve chosen this show, which just the name sounds crazy, terrifying and desperate. Have you heard of it? It’s a show about six individuals who are matched by a “team of experts” and agree to marry without meeting their “perfect” stranger until their wedding day. Sounds crazy right? What’s even crazier is this is the third season. How do they find these people? So brave, yet so stupid.
Season 1 was by far the most successful. Two of the couple’s, though struggling, are still together today. How do I know they’re struggling? Because they have their own show documenting their struggles. Season 2 wasn’t as fortunate. All three couples have broken up and one of the couples filed a restraining order against the other. Nothing says ever lasting love like a restraining order.
The biggest change this year is location: Atlanta. Season 1 and 2 were New Yorkers, now we’ve got the Southerners, y’all. This should be a knee-slapping good time. FYI – this is my third reality series in four months recapping the city of Atlanta. Married to Medicine, Real Housewives of Atlanta, and now Married at First Sight. I’m not saying I’m an expert on this city, just that I’ve come to love it.
The four experts returning to the show are psychologist, Dr. Joseph Cilona; sociologist, Dr. Pepper Schwartz; sexologist, Dr. Logan Levkoff; and a spiritual adviser, Greg Epstein. On a side note, I would like to conduct a social experiment naming children, Pepper, to see if there’s a correlation to becoming a doctor.
Please join me Wednesday mornings beginning Dec 2 when I post my (hopefully) hilarious recaps chronicling what happens when two complete strangers meet and marry. They must move in together for six weeks and navigate their new married life. Will they like each other? Will they have sex? Will they have regrets? At the end of the experiment the couples must decide to either stay together or get a divorce. The take away? No matter what our current love life is like, at least we ain’t in their wedding shoes.
