'Married At First Sight': Katie is shocked after reading Derek's romantic poem and fans think she is 'nuts'
Derek Sherman and Katie Conrad make for one of the cutest couples on 'Married At First Sight' but that's a thing of past. They started well but got off track mid-way and that is how their equation has been for weeks now.
Katie wants Derek to be in love with her but seems to be more invested and drawn towards his dreams, which includes building treehouses and writing poetry. They require time and are extremely ambitious goals. Derek acknowledges that and has even assured Katie multiple times that he will not deviate from what they have built over the past few weeks. However, she seems to be anything but convinced.
In this week's episode, Katie and Derek visit his home — his garage to be precise — which is stocked up with tidbits from when he was in school. While rummaging through it, Katie found an icebox that had a bucket list pasted on it, from which one was checked — get a hot date for yourself. Elaborating on it, Derek said that he and his date, Monica, snuck into a circus and pet elephants.
Was Katie enraged or maybe a little jealous? She was surely taken aback. And even more when Derek shared a snippet of a poem he had written while in school. Titled 'Sight', it was an emotional one laced with feelings of love and care. This shook Katie to the core because she couldn't fathom how could have Derek written something like that if he had never been in love? Meanwhile, Derek explained one doesn't have to be in love to relate to those feelings.
Meanwhile, fans think Katie is someone who is pulled towards guys who are jerks and are baffled that she is even a mental health professional.
"Katie is a screwed up girl drawn to guys who treat her like shit and pull her hair, so she doesn’t know what to think about a sensitive, romantic, poem-writing nice guy. Go back to the jerks, Katie, & let Derek find a nice girl," one user wrote, while another shared: "Katie doesn’t know how derek can write a poem like that without ever having been in love. and we’re all wondering how the hell she’s a mental health professional with an attitude like that."
"Here goes Katie about to overthink and sabotage shit instead of just giving Derek a compliment and enjoying a really good poem. What a bitch," a viewer added. "Soooo... You’re jealous of a poem dude wrote when he was 15 yo??? And you are a counselor? You are NUTS Katy!!" another fan expressed.
