“Paradise Lost?” Season 9 Episode 5 ‘Married at First Sight’ Review

As Pastor Calvin would say, “It is the end of Fantasy and the Beginning of building a foundation”. Couples dive deeper into their relationships and talk about their past relationships and futures moving in together. Our couples are getting ready for their last day in paradise. Join Mike Thieling and Lanisha Fisher as they talk all things Married at First Sight.

The cart comes way before the horse in the reality series “Married at First Sight.” Based on a hit Danish format, “Married …” features six people who agree to participate in an extreme experiment: Each covenants legal marriage with a complete stranger. Four specialists — a sexologist, a spiritualist, a psychologist and a sociologist — use scientific matchmaking methods to determine each couple, who will not have met or had contact with each other until the wedding day. The series then documents the relationships, including honeymoons and other relatable events of married life. After several weeks, each couple must decide whether to remain together or go their individual ways.
