The ‘groom’, Sam, has just met his ‘bride’, Elizabeth, for the first time on Married at First Sight.
He’s already told the cameras he just hopes she has a good smile and is a positive person. He also tells us that he doesn’t like being judged on his looks. He said that personality is more important than looks…
The next statement we hear him say is that she’s bigger than what he’s dated before:
She’s probably been self conscious of that in previous relationships. I’ll get her up running in the morning. But she’ll be right. We’ll get her going.
You. Arrogant. Arsehole.
This woman does not need to go running on a morning. Unless she wants to!!
We then hear Sam talking to his mates about how far to go on the wedding night.
I don’t want to shut her down. She’s very happy.
His mate says, in so many words, that intimacy might make them closer and relax more. He’s still unsure and says he’s just met her (true- most common sense thing he’s said all night) but then something else negative. Didn’t he want someone positive?
That’s a dire look on things, his mate says.
Sam, you are so good looking you may not be used to people telling you to take a good hard look at yourself.
Elizabeth thinks he’s a lovely gentlemen. We’ll be watching you Sam, I hope you are.
I hope she doesn’t want to go all the way.
The other couple we meet – Lauren and Matt are both super nice. He’s super stressed as he hasn’t kissed a girl for 7 years and the viewers already know the marketing team have called him the 29 year old virgin.
Surely this won’t come out Day one?! Of course it does. He reveals:
I’m actually still a virgin
He goes on to explain that he wanted to manage her expectations about the night (he must have been shitting himself). Luckily they have a great chat and say really sweet things to make the other feel good.
She makes up for her initial reaction:
I want to get to know you on a deeper level. Thank you for sharing and being honest.
Why is he a virgin? He didn’t want to be vulnerable.
Now you are just going for it. You are so brave.
Coming up in the next ep…. one of the grooms bolts!
Ah Sam, that’s not very gentlemanly. Maybe someone told you that you should be the one to go for a run!
