When you hear about a television series called Married at First Sight, chances are you envision a lot of drama. After all, it takes a lot of couples years together before they decide to take the plunge and get married – it’s an incredibly big decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. However, for the purposes of reality television, people are being a bit more lax with their attitude towards this big commitment.
The series, which is actually based on a Danish reality television series (what on earth were you thinking, Danes?), features six individuals (three couples) who agree to marry someone the minute they meet them. They’re paired up by a team of experts, but still… that’s quite an agreement to strike. Instead of going on a few dates, these bold couples give their relationship a trial run by going straight to their honeymoon and then spending a month together in marital bliss (or not), celebrating a big holiday, and more. After six weeks total, they decide whether it’s working out or not. Pretty crazy, right?
However, the drama that has emerged from some of the couples is more than producers likely could have ever dreamed of. Restraining orders, death threats, and that’s just naming a few of them. This season has had its fair share of drama, and a lot of it has revolved around one couple in particular – Jessica Castro and Ryan De Nino.
Here are 10 secrets you didn’t know about the show, and about this season’s most controversial couple.
10 Castro came on the show to change her luck in love
9 De Nino threatened to kill Jessica
8 The experts might not be all that great
7 The future bride and groom draft pre-nups
6 More people are willing to marry a stranger than you might think
5 De Nino posted the restraining order on his Instagram account
4 The success rate has gone from 66% to 0%
3 There’s more than just the experts’ matchmaking
2 Jessica doesn’t believe in divorce
1 They’re already filming a third season
Yep. This shouldn’t exactly come as a surprise. Given the controversies and drama of this past season, of course they’re going to try to get another season full of hopefuls. They’re keeping the same format of three couples, six weeks, and have been filming in Atlanta. That’s right – there are six people out there, likely unhappily married, right now. Given that the experts claimed Ryan had a “sweetness” to him this season, hence why he was initially paired with Jessica, we certainly hope they picked couples a little better. Although, with a 0% success rate in the second season, partially due to a cast full of drug addicts and cheaters, they can’t exactly do any worse.
