'Married at First Sight' Spoilers: Honeymoon destination disclosed, fans worry for couples' safety amid Covid-19
'Married at First Sight' Season 12 was shot amid the pandemic and fans are worried if the show took sufficient precautions before jetting off to the honeymoon location
'Married at First Sight' Season 12 is underway and we have met the five couples who are taking a huge leap of faith by marrying strangers. The social experiment has been around for over a decade and it wouldn't be wrong to say that it prides itself on its success stories. But there have been failures too. Let's hope this time the results are different.
Pastor Calvin Roberson, Dr Pepper Schwartz and Dr Viviana Coles have teamed up yet again to match couples they think will write happily ever after stories. But the premiere episode painted a different picture. There were quite a few red flags as the individuals went about introducing themselves in the confessionals and Chris Williams took the top spot in that category.
He said he wanted a "freak" for a wife who would be "submissive" and rightfully earned himself a bad edit. Paige Banks, blissfully unaware of his requirements, admitted to wanting to marry a "god-fearing" man, which struck as odd to the other ladies on the show. But, she is confident about her needs and wants and that is what really matters. Unfortunately for fans, that was possibly the only high-point of the show because not one wedding was aired in the mega-sized 3-hour-long episode. Most started to get bored and wanted to skip to the part where they leave for their honeymoon.
While viewers were on that topic, a fan account broke the news about the honeymoon destination. Apparently, the couples will jet off to Las Vegas for their special vacation, MAFSfan revealed. However, this left fans worried who are of the opinion that the just-married love birds won't be safe given the Covid-19 situation in the area. The season filmed was in August 2020.
"Even in covid they got honeymoons! i figured they may do something local but i didn’t expect las vegas," a fan commented on a Reddit thread, to which another replied: "Idk why they did somewhere so crowded. Should have gone to the mountains and away from people. Guess production got a really good deal in Vegas since lack of business due to covid."
"To be honest, the first few episodes of #MarriedAtFirstSight are typically boring. Idc about anything that happens before the first day of the honeymoon," a user tweeted. "Why must they drag this intro fluff part out? Fast forward to the honeymoon," another shared.
