Married at First Sight

The next Dinner Party is about to begin on Married at First Sight and Timothy is ready for war with Jayden. Meanwhile, Ben, who utterly offended his Bride Ellie with a long list of dislikes, has gained a new perspective on their relationship and wants to make a grand gesture. 

At the Cocktail Party, Ellie arrives alone and Jayden is concerned about Timothy’s treatment of Lucinda. Lucinda reassures him that they’ve had a genuine reset; however, overhearing this conversation, Timothy sees red. 

When Ben finally arrives just in time for dinner, Ellie brings up the list he wrote of her flaws, including that she shouldn’t wear makeup. Sara is furious because she believes this is controlling behaviour. While Ben agrees it was a dumb thing to say, he then says that Ellie spends a lot of time in the mirror — and frankly, he should stop talking…

Meanwhile, Timothy is eyeing off Jayden before an argument ensues. Jayden believes his advice should count for something as his “relationship is near perfect”; but Timothy is furious. Timothy then tells Jayden he’s a “grandstander” and will “have nothing in life” before slamming his fist on the table!

Later, Timothy speaks fondly of his Bride, however, Tori is not convinced. She explains that if Jack spoke like that, her “foot would go down his throat” which annoys Timothy who points out the irony that Tori had no problem when Jack said “muzzle your lady” to Jonathan. Cassandra then speaks up, but Tori is furious and tells her: “Don’t tell me what I said”.
