'MAFS': Is Rachel not attracted to Jose? Fans irked by his 'insecurity' and 'low self-esteem'
For the couples of 'Married at First Sight', there is a feeling of insecurity while going through the process. Seeing that the participants marry total strangers, it is not uncommon for them to worry about if their spouse will find them attractive.
For Jose, his biggest concern walking down the aisle was if his wife would be attracted to him or not. He was rather self-conscious on his wedding day that he was not 6 feet or that his nose and forehead are quite big. However, when Rachel walked down the aisle, she was all smiles, putting his tension at ease, seeing that he was on the lookout for any signs that she might be upset at his appearance.
After the wedding, the two sat down and spoke before the reception and learned that they have a lot in common, seeing that they both were born and raised in Houston, speak Spanish and are massive sports fans. Rachel confessed that she went for several sports events alone, including the world series, and Jose even promised to propose to her at a game on their anniversary, seeing that it was her dream.
Everything was off to a great start until, throughout the conversation, Rachel made a statement saying that she doesn't care about looks but is more concerned about her partner's personality. Jose immediately assumed that she was not attracted to him, which fans found somewhat problematic.
"Jose's mannerisms and insecurity annoy me already, Rachel is an aight lady at first it was like giving her the shallow edit, but she seems like a chill nice lady #MAFS" tweeted a fan. "Jose is hella insecure. His accomplishments and the two homes he purchased aren't going to compensate for it nor make him any taller. #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS" added another.
"I bet Jose's low self esteem causes him to be controlling in relationships because it provides a level of false comfort/security. I'm not a social worker or anything, just an observation. #MAFS #MarriedAtFirstSight" observed another.

The situation only got worse when Jose bombarded Rachel with plans of their future, seeing that he had it all mapped out, without even discussing things with her.
"Jose, you are doing too much. You just met her and went to plan your whole life without discussing her. Huh?! #MAFS #mafsHouston #MarriedAtFirstSight" added a fan. "Rachel is TERRIFIED!! Jose already asking about leases and she is SKRESSED!! #MAFS" pointed out another.
"Why does Rachel look like she's in the principals office when Jose listing his expectations #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS" tweeted a fan. "Jose is one of those "what do you bring to the table" type dudes. Go away from me with this. #MAFS" exclaimed a fan. "Jose need a therapist, not a wife. God bless Rachel. #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS" added another.
