Nine TV Report

Married at First Sight

Nine’s evening began with the Final Vows fast approaching on Married at First Sight. 

While some couples are loved up, Sara is more apprehensive, as she prepares to face the group for the first time since it was revealed she had caught up with her ex. She regrets what she did to Tim and wants to continue trying to regain his trust. Tim hasn’t forgiven Sara yet but thinks they are making steps in the right direction.

As the couples head off to the Dinner Party, Andrea and Richard are yet to even get dressed, running late due to an argument. Richard thinks Andrea has ruined what they had and is blaming Andrea’s traumas from her past relationships. Andrea is furious, and the argument intensifies until Richard walks away.

When the group sits down for dinner, Andrea and Richard are asked to fill the group in on what’s happening with them. Richard explains how they have had heated conversations that “got personal” and “a bit nasty” and that Andrea has hurt from her previous relationships that’s affected them. Andrea attempts to explain that it’s not past relationships, but rather their communication style that’s the problem, but when Richard continues to blame her past, Andrea loses her composure. 

The conversation then turns to Sara and Tim and Tim explains that he gave Sara the opportunity to make it up to him. Jayden tells Tim to “run for the hills”. It starts to escalate but Tim shuts it down and asks for the group to respect his decision – he thinks the group is being too hard on her and that there’s been a change this week.
