Married at First Sight

Nine’s evening began with another Commitment Ceremony on Married at First Sight. 

While Eden and Jayden, and Jade and Ridge couldn’t get enough of one another, Tristan was having serious doubts about his relationship with Cassandra, choosing to write ‘Leave’, even though she wrote ‘Stay’. Finally, after some coaxing from the Experts, he recognised that his lack of confidence was holding back their potential to move past friendship. He apologised profusely, expressing his regret for writing leave. 

Meanwhile, Ellie was still not buying what Ben was choosing to sell, Timothy was furious with Lucinda after feeling blindsided and was put on Notice by the Experts, Andrea was concerned over Richard’s behaviour at the previous Commitment Ceremony, Stephen was having trouble with Michael being left at the altar-ish the first time and Madeleine chose to leave the experiment, even though her husband Ash decided to stay.

But the drama was really at an all-time high when Jack’s disgusting comment from the Dinner Party was addressed — you know, the one where he had told Jonathan to “put a muzzle on your woman”… Still furious about it, expert John Aiken was then made even madder when Jonathan apologised to… *check’s notes* …. Jack and Tori instead of his wife, Lauren. While he wasn’t the one to comment, he did not stick up for Lauren and neither did any of the other Grooms, which the Experts deemed unacceptable.

Finally, Jack and Tori sat on the couch, appearing as a united front. The experts rake him over the coals for his appalling behaviour and question his character. Finally, Tori’s rose-tinted glasses start to slip as she ponders her husband’s controversial comments, but ultimately, they both choose to stay.

Australian Idol

Over on Seven, the first six of the Top 12 performed on Australian Idol. With the pressure of the Live round heating up the competition, four of the performers failed to impress judges Kyle SandilandsMarcia Hines and Amy Shark. Tasked with singing party songs, it was Dylan’s stripped-back, acapella version of (I’m Gonna Be) 500 Miles that blew away the judges and had the audience on their feet in a standing ovation. He was sent straight through to the next round.

While the judges praised Drea for showing her quirky side, trolley-pusher Isaac struggled with his lyrics once again and TJ‘s Party Rock was deemed too much show and not enough vocals by the judges. When it came time for 17-year-old Kiani to take the stage, her performance was marred by the fact she felt uncomfortable in her outfit. Marcia then told her to never go out in anything that she wasn’t comfortable in, giving her the power to speak up. 

Finally, Jessica Mauboy performed her new single, while also reminiscing about her Australian Idol journey which began in front of judges Kyle and Marcia in 2006.
