Who are Jamie Thompson and Elizabeth Bice? Meet 'MAFS' couple behind the iconic 'basic Caucasian sex' line
Elizabeth Bice's iconic line is definitely one of our favorite 'MAFS' moments, but this explosive couple seems to have calmed down quite a bit
Arguing while in a relationship is normal. If anything, it's a sign of a healthy relationship. But what happens when all you and your spouse do is fight, regardless of where you are and who you're with? If there's any 'MAFS' couple that fits that bill, it would have to be Jamie Thompson and Elizabeth Bice, seeing that all they did on their season was go at each other throats.
If you're curious to know what they and past 'MAFS' couples have been up to, then get ready for Season 2 'Married at First Sight: Couples Cam'. A self-shot series, 'Couples Cam' gives us a look at the 'MAFS' couples lives — from dealing with the pandemic to working on their relationship and in some cases, taking care of their growing families.
All they did was fight
Jamie Thompson, who is currently a senior technical consultant at Box, a cloud content management company, was paired with Elizabeth Bice, who works as an entrepreneur and an influencer on Season 9 of 'MAFS'. While the couple claims that they were always willing to be open and vulnerable with their emotions on camera, we all know that's code for "they fought a lot".
A lot seems like a bit of an understatement. From Bice getting upset on her honeymoon during the boat ride and snapping at Thompson to him asking her to shut up in front of their castmates, the fights these two went through had fans convinced they wouldn't make it to decision day. And of course, there's the infamous one-month anniversary fight, where Thompson was upset over the fact that Bice was only interested in how she looked in their wedding photos.
Thompson felt that she was being shallow and that it was their day and it was wrong of her to make everything about herself. She did justify this later that as a bride, she's allowed to enjoy all the details. As Thompson continued to chide her, Bice maintained that she didn't want to argue and she just wanted him to leave. He then said that if he left, he was leaving this marriage. To which she responded "okay, bye". Jamie took his bags and walked out, and fans thought that it was the final straw. But it was far from over for these two, seeing that they reconciled soon enough.
'Couples Cam' Season 1 saw them doing much better
No one really expected Bice and Thompson to work through their differences, seeing that all they could do is blame each other. But during 'Couples Cam' Season 1, the couple spoke about their time during quarantine, seeing that they decided to stay together. It was clear to see that the two were really putting in the work. From spending quality time together to cycling regularly, it was heartwarming to see the two of them talk so fondly about each other. She even took a jab at her 'basic Caucasian sex' line, saying that the two were having more fun together and were a lot more in tune with each other now. In Episode 1 of their season, she had described sex with Thompson as just "basic Caucasian sex" and fans couldn't stop talking about it.
Their Instagram is basically dedicated to each other
One look at either of their Instagram profiles and you'd find it hard to believe that these two lovebirds went through all the chaos they did back on their season. The couple enjoys spending time with their dogs and plenty of outdoor activities, while not shying away from the PDA. It's cute to see them this way, especially after Jamie once expressed his concern regarding if Bice really found him attractive. But they often refer to each other as their mcm and wcm (man crush Mondays and Woman Crush Wednesdays), and it is great to see them grow together in love.
