                            Why did Chris Williams panic? 'Married At First Sight' star Paige Banks shocked he called her 'ugly' after sex

With the wedding ceremony out of the way, the couples spent their first night together and each of them had interesting chemistry, to say the least. While Erik and Victoria seemed to be cuddly, Haley and Jacob struggled to find something to bond over. However, what truly shocked everyone was what transpired between Chris Williams and Paige Banks.

On their wedding night, the couple seemed to joke about the condoms that came with their room. While Williams mentioned (again) that he wasn't sure about just how attracted he was to his wife, he did make it seem like it could change over time. That didn't stop the couple from getting intimate together and sharing a few tender moments. With Williams constantly talking about if he was attracted to his new wife or not, the night seemed to end on a seemingly positive note for the two.

'Married At First Sight’: Why did Chris Williams ask about Paige Banks' virginity? Fans say he is 'just ugh!'

The next morning, however, was a whole different story. Williams seemed to go missing all morning while Banks waited for him, without a clue as to where he was. She kept trying to contact him, but couldn't even seem to get through his phone. When Williams finally did show up, he apologized saying that he was missing because he had a panic attack.

Banks sat down with her husband to comfort him, citing that her vows implied she'd be there for him no matter what only to have him say that even though they matched perfectly on paper, he was not exactly attracted to her. This came as a blow to Banks, who mentioned in her confessional that this revelation came to her as a shock, seeing that they slept together not once, but multiple times throughout their wedding night.

Fans were appalled and were quick to call Williams out on what they believe was all an act. "I get being honest, but to say that to Paige that the lack of attractiveness he feels towards her was the 'cause' of his panic attack to the point he’s like 'what the fuck did I just do?', that’s insulting and hurtful. Y’all just met, you don’t know her #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS," wrote a viewer.

"If I went on married at first sight and someone kept going on about how I didn’t look the women he’s used to and how they weren’t super attracted to me, I’d be crying for weeks..... because I’d be in jail for assault. #mafs #MarriedAtFirstSight" said a fan. "HE HAD SEX WITH HER AND THEN SAID HE WAS NOT ATTRACTED HER?! TRASH. STRAIGHT UP TRASH. #MAFS" tweeted another.

"You can't unring a bell. Paige will forever hear his words. Words can crush one's spirit. Gawd I hate Chris so much! #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS" said a fan about the same. "He had sex with her and then called her ugly? DIVORCE NOW #MaFS" tweeted another, clearly angry. 










The situation between them only got worse when Banks met Williams' parents and aunt the next day for lunch. When they asked about their relationship, Banks was candid and mentioned that they'd hit a road bump — seeing that her new husband claimed he was not attracted her. While Williams' father called his son out on this situation, his mother seemed to be of the opinion that Williams might have just been drinking.

It was difficult to watch her passive-aggressive attitude and fans were not having it, seeing that they also made it plenty clear. "Like that excuses his behavior... TF!!RT @RaveenTheDream: Chris whole family fulla shit. This is not normal. His momma said 'did he have a drink?' I would’ve slapped the shit outta his momma. Knock her and her purple off the camera #MAFS #MarriedAtFirstSight," wrote a viewer.

"Chris’ mom out there making excuses for her son talking about “was he drinking” and ole girl had to shut that down. She was like...we did it again this morning.....respectfully. Mom shut right up lol. #marriedatfirstsight #MAFS" agreed another. "#mafs Chri's father just said he raised a gentleman! This whole family is ridiculous." tweeted a fan.






The situation only escalated when the Williams' family confronted him about this situation. Williams was seen crying (again) when he told Banks he's never been the type to talk about his sex life publicly and to have Banks do so didn't sit well with him at all.

He was even upset when he found out that she's spoken to her male friends about her predicament. Banks stood her ground, saying that it was a matter of respect and for them to have gotten intimate only for him to say she wasn't attractive was extremely disrespectful.

The couple did seem to reconcile at the end of the episode or at least decide to try to make their marriage work, seeing that they were ready to go on their honeymoon. Will they make it or should Banks start running for the hills?

Their reconciliation seems to be short lived too, seeing that the preview for the next episode has Williams revealing something to Banks while she tells the camera crew that it's all too much. Looks like we've to wait for the next episode to see the drama unfold.
