What can fans expect from 'Married at First Sight' Season 16, Episode 2?

In the forthcoming episode of Lifetime's "Runaway Groom?", the Nashville residents are set to go down the aisle and marry total strangers. The five couples, Kristen and Shaquille, Domynique and Mackinley, Gina and Clint, Jasmine and Airris, and Nicole and Christopher, will first marry and then get to know one other as part of the show's plot.


Nicole and Chris deliver each other unexpected presents ahead of the wedding in a sneak peek video shared on social media networks. Chris receives a Mr. and Mrs. photo frame, as well as a few other goods, whilst Nicole receives a handmade note, as well as other items. According to the card, "Most of the items will give you a clue of the type of person I am and what types of things I am passionate about. Just know you are not alone in this mess, and I cannot wait to meet you."

Chris termed the 'Married at First Sight' procedure "crazy" and expressed his excitement to meet his partner and share this unique experience with her. Nicole discovers a diamond necklace in her present and is quite impressed by her soon-to-be husband's taste. She becomes upset as she considers how much he cares about her despite not knowing her. She went on to say that he loves her more than anybody else she knows, "If you wanna know why I wanna marry a stranger, it’s because I’ve never felt like this about anyone I actually know. And if it takes marrying a stranger to feel this way, I would do it a hundred times over, and I haven’t even done it yet."



Watch the upcoming episode of 'Married at First Sight' on Lifetime on January 11 at 8:00 pm ET.
