There’s a little rumor floating around – Oh, that? – Could the couples make it on their own? – Frustrations kept building, and they came out – But you pull up your list on your phone of 40 reasons that I’m gay – Your Facebook page still says to this day that you’re in a relationship with a man. I’m sorry ♪ ♪ – Is there any chance for a reconciliation? – After the cameras and everything left, I mean, we define our relationship from here – And the fact that it took so long to end is a shame – As we know, a lot can change in three months That’s why the big question today is, “Are you still married?” ♪ ♪ This is the “Married at First Sight” finale – ♪ It’s all or nothing ♪ ♪ It’s all or nothing ♪ ♪ And there is no other way ♪ ♪ It’s all or nothing ♪ Welcome to the “Married at First Sight” finale I’m your host, Kevin Frazier, and right now let’s jump right in and bring out our first couple, Stephanie and AJ – Hi – Good to see you – Good to see you – How you doing? – Good, thank you – Why don’t you sit right there AJ, what’s up? – How’s it going? – How’re you guys doing? – Okay – Yeah? – Good – Now, when you first decided to participate in “Married at First Sight,” did you really think you’d find love? Did you think that you would find the person and that connection? – I did, so I genuinely truly thought, “Yes, “I’m doing this to find love, to find the partner that I want to be with the rest of my life.” – AJ? – I’ve–I haven’t succeeded in my own life finding love, and I’ve been single for five years, and I said, “Eh, if I can get someone to do the legwork for me…” – Mm-hmm. Yeah. I get that – “Why not? They’re experts at the top of their profession,” so– – Let’s be honest You hit a home run, didn’t you? – I did – Yeah? – Nailed it out of the park – Yeah You’re happy, aren’t you? – Yeah Here’s a look – [inhaling and exhaling rapidly] [bottle pops] – Whoo. Best sound ever – That’s the sound of marriage right there [cheers and applause] – Dude, go eat – I don’t want to eat without her, you know? I’ve been eating dinner alone for so long I refuse to do it on my wedding night – I think he likes me – I think I might just a little bit – AJ has a very big personality – Don’t get ahead of yourself – I haven’t been with anyone that has as big of a personality as AJ before – Last night, Stephanie and I slept together for the first time [laughs] The timing just felt right, On the beach at sunset gazing into each other’s eyes – It’s manchego cheesy Oh, my gosh, you are too stinkin’ cute Walking around the street holding hands, and it’s really cool being a tourist in our own city together – This is exactly why I chose to be married at first sight – The airport is that way See the airport left? – It’s–I can–no, I can go this way. Stop, please – His attitude can change really fast Okay He doesn’t know when he’s crossing my line yet – I feel like she hasn’t seen the absolute best version of me at all times – That’s ice – Yeah, but how are you gonna get it out of there? – Cut the bottle – Damn, you’re smart I feel like we’re really becoming a power couple – What color do you want on me? – Any activity that involves me getting to check out my hot wife in a bikini, it’s okay in my book – [laughs] Ahh! [laughs] – It’s so weird to have a wife and wake up every morning and be like, “I really, really like you.” – Really like you – I really like those pants on you – You like these pants off me too, don’t you? – They look really good in the corner – Everyone who is married knows that there are days where you love your spouse, and there are days where you’re like, “I don’t really like you that much today “You’re not going anywhere, but you’re getting on my nerves today.” Have you guys had any of those? ‘Cause everything is so– – Everybody’s question is always, “Have you had your first fight yet?” – Yeah, have you? – And that’s like asking a couple that just got married, “When are you having children?” Or a couple that’s been together for five years, “When are you getting engaged?” It’s rude to ask – AJ, everybody has a little drama Everybody has a little drama, AJ – I mean, we didn’t – AJ AJ, you’re talking to a man who’s been married twice – Yeah, I understand – Everybody has a little drama in their marriage – I did have frustrations, but none of them were to here It was all with the producers, lack of skills, lack of organization – Wait, wait, wait It’s your marriage – It’s your marriage Look–what did you just say? Right now you were trying to straighten your husband out,

weren’t you? You were trying to calm your husband down a little bit – Well there’s– so there’s a difference between–you know, when things get out of hand or when emotions go sky-high, it’s sparked by something Also, sometimes when he would get upset, it’s because he’s protecting me because I’m not okay with something, but I’m not as verbal about it, so if he sees that I’m upset, then he’ll try to protect me, and so then it comes out that he’s the angry one – You’re learning about each other You’re learning about– – I got very defensive of our marriage multiple times throughout You know, all I want to do is defend the marriage – Mm-hmm. Okay, let me ask you another question What was the biggest obstacle of your married life? – Um, after wedding day? – Yeah, in the beginning – I think probably the biggest obstacle in the beginning was moving in together I mean– – It’s funny you mention the moving in together, ’cause you got a little snappy at first You had a moment there where you were less-than-happy about someone coming in and changing all your stuff around – Yeah – And I have the best version of myself, and as some people probably already saw, I have a bad version of myself and everything in between, but– – But he knows it’s there – I know it’s there – And you can acknowledge it, yeah – And I have to acknowledge it – It’s also known that it’s okay to say, “Snip it! – Yeah – Calm down. Now let’s talk.” – That’s okay – Yeah – So see, there, that is what I think I was asking earlier, that you two do have a kind of a communication where you understand how to deal with each other – And we believe in marriage ultimately, and the commitment of that, and I think that’s what helps us get along too We fight for ourselves, but we fight for marriage in general – And marriage is easier when cameras are gone? – Yeah. Much – You’re much less frustrated – I have zero frustration Since the cameras left, zero frustration, zero outbursts, zero anger, happy-go-lucky AJ just like I was before the cameras ever arrived – So clearly you two have this great connection, and on decision day, you guys decided to stay together But that was three months ago, and as we know, a lot can change in three months That’s why the big question today is, “Are you still married?” ♪ ♪ – Yeah – Yeah – Okay – Happily married – Yeah, we are – Happily married as can be – I was gonna say, if you say you’re not married – That would’ve been the shock of the world – You actually kiss each other like you like each other Wow – We do, yeah Some might even say we love each other – Has anyone dropped the L-word?

Yeah – Why not? – But there were a couple of bumps in the road early on Can we go back and talk about those pictures in the cell phone? – Oh – You didn’t clear your cell phone before you got married? – I didn’t even know they were in there – I feel like you knew they were in there You just didn’t care – But you’ve worked that out now? – Yeah – He understands now, doesn’t he? – Oh, he learned – Oh, yeah – The hard way – Those pictures are gone, right? – Those pictures are gone – Okay I also want to ask about Keith’s perception of a wife’s role Have you guys worked that out? – He had to go through, you know, like, the motions of him understanding that–I don’t know– certain roles needed to be shared – You know, it’s a process

We’re still growing as humans, and, you know, this is our new marriage skin, and it just feels good – He helps out a lot more, so he’s definitely stepping up – When did you know this was gonna work? – When you took it upon yourself to learn how to cook, that was the turning point – And clearly you cook a hell of a steak – Yes, I do – Okay – It’s getting better every time – Keith, how did it make you feel when you realized that Kristine was more financially successful than you? – Well, I mean, I didn’t– clearly I didn’t mind I just wanted a wife that can, you know, have my back when I don’t have it – So what is the timeline for kids? – Ooh, pushed that thing – Pushed it? She just pushed it? – She pushed it.

I’m gonna start on this side of the panel ’cause that’s an obvious question – Oh, this was strategically done Okay. Look at you – Yeah, I do I think there’s a lot of things, but I guess my first thing was, I noticed Stephanie and AJ I noticed AJ immediately had this, like, appreciation and respect for Stephanie, and I just–I really like that about you guys – Aw – Thank you – Very good – Will, is there anything that you saw in the other couples? – Um – Why you looking at Luke? You wanted something from Luke? Is there something Luke had that you wanted? – You’re taking cues from the wrong person – Keep it over here, Will – Um, no, I can’t think of anything off the top of my head – No? – No – How ’bout, like, a marriage? Would you– – Oh! – That’s a joke Luke, how about you? You said you were surprised that the other couples weren’t as awkward, or their situation wasn’t as awkward, as yours was on the wedding night Why is that? – I just thought everyone was gonna kind of have that– I guess a little guarded or a little reserved with someone you just met on the wedding night – It’s “Married at First Sight,” not Dating at First Sight – I’m aware – AJ, Steph, looking at the other relationships, are you relieved that your marriage is very different from the other couples? – Yeah I mean, I value what we have, but we worked our asses off to have what we have I mean, we lost a lot of hours of sleep in order to devote the time and the communication to each other that we needed to make this work – You sure did – It wasn’t luck It was a lot of work – Yeah – How about you, Jas? Is there something that you saw in the other couples that could’ve helped with your relationship with Will? – Of course. We always talk about intimacy and chemistry, and we know the couple with the crazy chemistry is K and K – Oh, look at them And she sticks her tongue out on that moment She’s like, “You doggone right.” [laughter] And so you wish you had a little of that chemistry? – Absolutely – Any couple has the potential to not work out That’s just the way it goes Even though these couples are matchable scientifically and with the experience of the experts, sometimes this journey can bring out frustrations that are unexpected Let’s take a look – I mean, you’re gonna throw me on the spot right now, I’m gonna have nothing for you – Yeah, and I understand that – Homework is normally done at home for the next day – We can do Misconduct, City Tap Yeah, that’s fine – Let’s just go somewhere We’ve been talking about it for 20 minutes We’re gonna end up not eating anything I’m very outspoken What are you doing at our house? What the [bleep]? The mini-moon is supposed to be a chance to reconnect Going to, like, seriously grab a hotel room This is [bleep] up We have to share bathrooms [laughter] I just got used to that in my marriage Now I got to get used to it with six other strangers? ♪ ♪ – Kristine, how would you have reacted if Keith had those types of frustrations? – Can you see Keith– – [inaudible] – Yeah, it would’ve a been war – You know what?

Yeah, it would’ve been– I know Everyone says we’re like magnets now, but, you know, like, the opposites, and we would’ve exploded, because if he even thought he was gonna sit there and like, raise his voice, he would’ve had another thing coming – I have to raise it in a different tone, and it’s, like, a happy tone – Very happy tone – It’s like, “This is for dinner?” [laughter] “Oh, hooray.” – AJ, all jokes aside, what did you think of that of what you just saw? – Watching myself back now, I realize that I got very protective of my marriage early on, and my guard was up for much of the show Frustrations kept building, and they came out It happened throughout a lot of times as you see in the clip, and am I proud of it? No, but I mean, it is what it is – I think you were shooting a show about being “Married at First Sight,” and I think that it–You know, it’s part of the experiment You have to put the two things together– you know what I mean? The production of it and the experiment, ’cause it’s all one, you know? It’s like marriage There aren’t always perfect days, but it’s a damn good thing Luke, you did most of the cooking up in the Poconos for the group trip Was that to keep the peace? – It was a good way, I thought, to kind of help smooth everything out ’cause we were a little rocky We were going to the Poconos “together,” but some people didn’t grasp that “together” meant “together.” – Together – Together – All together – Yeah – As you learned, when you were like– – I mean, you stick eight adults in a house, and what do you expect? I mean, we’re not in high school, you know? I mean, treat us like adults – We’ve been talking about the differences in relationships, and one of the most confusing marriages this season was, let’s be honest, Kate and Luke’s. Take a look – Kiss – I just think it’s, like, odd that you haven’t kissed me yet, like, at all We had no idea what was gonna happen He kissed me last night, and then he said it made him feel repulsed and dead inside It came out that, “No, I’m not his type.” Luke asked me not to talk about this with the experts, but I can’t keep it a secret anymore Luke and I have been having sex since the honeymoon, and it’s been a little bit awkward I told Dr. Pepper that we actually have been having sex since the honeymoon – This is–I hate all of this How can I trust you? ‘Cause you’re like, “Oh, I swear to God, I’m never gonna whatever,” and it’s not changing ♪ ♪ – It’s very painful to watch you guys ♪ ♪ – But how did this affect the group watching this relationship and all the things unfold? – Everybody’s marriage is different I don’t have any input on it Like, I’m not an expert I’m not a professional Who am I to say anything about someone else’s marriage? – I mean, from an outside view, you could clearly tell she was in pain And the fact that it took so long to end is a shame It–It shouldn’t have gotten as bad as it did If you knew early on it’s impossible to make it work, then pull out ♪ ♪ – I’m sorry, but as far as, like, relationships, priority is right here, not–You know, Pastor Cal told me the husbands are the ring around a relationship, so we got to block everything, so I’m just focused right here – [sighs] – What? What are you thinking, Kate? What made you sigh like that? – Oh, I didn’t even realize I did that out loud, but just your responses, like the husbands over here, like, “My priority is my wife, and that’s what you put first,” and then the first thing that Luke asked me was about the other brides Our wedding night, when the cameras finally leave, you say, “Give me the dirt on the other brides.” I’m like, “Why would–” – I was wondering – Oh, yeah? – Do you feel like he might have done this to be on TV – Kate, do you feel like he might have done this to be on TV and not to find love? ♪ ♪ – Yes, I do – Really? – Yes – Did anybody come to you and say, “Get out?” ♪ ♪ – No – I didn’t tell her to get out – What did you say? – But I did tell her she should throw a right hook every now and then – Did you? – I sure did You know, knock a little sense into him every once and a while – Yeah, look at me [laughter] – Really, it works for Keith well though Working it on Keith – Did you know the full extent of things? ♪ ♪ – No I don’t think the full extent – I feel like he was playing a game of mental warfare

♪ ♪ – I–I’m so sorry ♪ ♪ I–I don’t know – What do you want to say, Luke? What do you want to say here? – That I’m embarrassed by all the behavior and the terrible way I treated you ♪ ♪ I’m sorry I really do want you to be happy ♪ ♪ – Thanks – Thanks ♪ ♪ – Does this day give you some closure? ♪ ♪ – Definitely – That’s good, and it’s great to see the sparkle back in your eyes All right, let’s switch gears On a much lighter note, I’m gonna read a few social media posts and give you all an opportunity to respond If you don’t want to respond, I’m gonna open it up to everyone Let’s start with Steph, AJ Well, here’s a tweet for you guys “I love that Stephanie is committed to the process “She’s choosing to see the bright side “in what others would see as AJ’s flaws “He’s got a dad bod. She’s like, I’ve never been into gym guys.” By the way, Dave, don’t flip that I’m rocking a dad bod too I don’t feel bad about it at all – You can–Okay – So first of all, I didn’t get “Married at First Sight” to have a rock star model That’s not why I was doing this I wanted a husband, and everything that I asked for in a husband personality-wise, career-wise, family-wise, religion-wise is what he is, and so that’s what made me grow to love him – AJ, what do you say to that tweet? – Um, as long as it’s not my personality that needs to be changed, I’m okay – Yeah. Absolutely – You’ll suck it in more, man It works – I thought I did, bro, and then I saw that stuff I was like, “[bleep].” – Okay, let’s move on to the next one “Jasmine and Will look really good together I hope it works out.” – Big fan – You love this couple together, don’t you? – Yes, I do – Yeah – I really do. I was like, you know, I’m cheering for the–I’m cheering for everybody, but I’m like “Oh.” [laughter] – Y’all are gorgeous together – I’m telling you – That’s all I’m saying – When you hear that, how’s that make you feel, Will? Um, it’s not like I’m happy to, you know, be sitting here, you know, without a ring on I signed up to find my forever I just wanted a partnership as opposed to the man just saying, “Oh, yeah, I’ll pay all the bills.” – I want to tell you, your stance sparked a huge argument at my job – Oh, yes – But will this change your view as you see men in the future? The next guy you date, will there be–will you say, “Hey, we can be 50/50”? – Absolutely not, but I just think [laughter] – You got to love her for sticking to her guns, right? That’s who she is – I still don’t believe in the 50/50 However, however, however, I’m happy that it sparked a debate, and when you talk about divorce, one of the top reasons why people divorce is because of financial concerns ♪ ♪ – Moving along, when you marry someone at first sight, there may be some surprises that you weren’t ready for and that you would have more time to come to terms with in a traditional relationship Kristine, was it a big shock Keith was immediately comfortable burping, farting, doing all those things on camera? ♪ ♪ – Now, on three, you all know what to do, right? – [burps] Excuse me [laughter] – Fan that that way, like All right, so we officially have a problem now This one over here just made our first fart ♪ ♪ – [farts] Sorry.

Like, you didn’t even wait until, like–You didn’t even want to go in the hall.” – It’s not like I farted on her I just, like, away from her – You smell it from the other side of the room You don’t have to fart on me for it to bother me – Anybody else have this issue like this? – No – No? – No – Nobody? – No – Oh, man, I’m sorry, baby – You’re the only one You’re the only one – My apologies – I’ve never farted in front of a female in my life, except my mother ♪ ♪ I still get up in the middle of the night and run out to the kitchen – What? – What? – You won’t fart in the bed? – I don’t know what it is It’s a mental block that I have – Man, you got to live, man – I know. I want to I want to so bad, but I can’t I’ll even roll over and I’ll see if she’s sleeping, and I’ll still get up and run out to the kitchen

It’ll be 3:00 a.m – And fart, and then you go back to sleep? – And fart and–Yep – Okay, it’ll get there It’ll get there one day – I’ll let you all know what happens – America will be waiting You know, this season the couples got a chance Listen, this has been a blast, but up to spend plenty of time together, but the group activities also highlight some of the personality differences between the participants Let’s take a look – AJ’s a stand-up guy No I don’t know He’s so over-the-top Not a fan of it – I got 20s. He’ll come back – I think he kind of–He’s– I don’t want to sound like an ass[bleep] – So how’d the Pastor Cal visit go for you guys? – Not that best I said, you know, some stupid stuff – You kissed her, and then you responded, “I feel repulsed, and I’m dead inside”? – I see it as disrespectful If I was Kate, I would say, “I want a divorce,” and get out of it Can we talk about Luke? You’re straight-up like “Teen Wolf.” I mean, look at your knuckles Can I shave your arms? – No, I just have to accept who I am as a person Okay, I’m gonna go to bed – Whoo! Lighten the [bleep] up You’re such a [bleep] – But I love drunk AJ – I was–I was wound up in the Poconos – Yeah – I was livid – Did anybody feel the tension between those two? – Yes – Oh, you did? – Oh, yes – I mean, our bachelor party, I didn’t feel it then But our first night back from the honeymoon, I kind of felt it then – I just think they’re two opposites, so I mean, without this process, they would just walk by each other in the street You know what I mean? They wouldn’t even talk at a bar – I mean, it’s clear that Luke and I have never been a fan of each other We’re so– – Oh, really? I misread that situation then – We have very, very opposite personalities – I thought we had become friends You were really helpful during the whole process – I mean, you called me ass[bleep] this episode – I told you – I deserved it, but you still said it – But you did I mean, it seemed like every time you commented about him, you were not a fan of his You were kind of like, “This dude’s over the top.” – If he was being over the top, yeah, I would say it I mean, I don’t like when he slaps my ass and says “whoo” in my ear – That’s not what you said that night. No, I’m kidding [laughter] – Any tension between the ladies? It seemed like you guys really kind of– – We love each other – Yeah – Yeah – This is, like, the best group here, like, support system – We do have our little bride tribe, and we talk often – Yeah – We all get along We feel open enough to talk to each other about all the issues that we’ve had – I mean, you seem to have formed a bond with these women Will they be your friends for the rest of your life? – Yes. Yes – Absolutely – I love all of you You really supported me, and I hope I supported you in everything, and I think you all are just the kindest, the most awesome women ♪ ♪ – Yeah – Okay, let me ask you another question One of the toughest things about participating in “Married at First Sight” is dealing with people’s reactions in watching the show Anyone get any weird unsolicited advice that you were like, “What?” – I’ve gotten a lot of messages from fans that are watching that have really just made me so happy Like, I’ve gotten someone that wrote me a prayer – There’s a lot of prayer people – Oh, yeah, that prayer was serious. Yeah – Yeah – It was very thoughtful though – Everyone I met in person has been so nice to me, like, over-the-top nice, like, pictures and just very, very nice – I got a couple random DMs saying, “Hey, are you still married? If not, I’ll marry you,” from, like, middle-aged women in the Midwest, but that’s it Like, that was really it We were laughing about it I mean, I showed her It’s nothing new – Kristine, I want to ask you about watching the matchmaking episode, and Keith and your dad sitting together and Keith saying that he liked doggy-style – So tell me, what’s off limits when it comes to sex? – I’m willing to try something new, but I do what I can do right, so I try to stick to it – What are your ways? – Doggy-style. That’s my thing [laughs] [laughter] – I saw it I didn’t even look at my dad I got up I walked out the room – Yeah, she walks out and leaves me–leaves me here – You deal with that – What is the reaction? Because not only when it happens, but when it, again, plays on TV? – Oh, gosh – And what were you thinking? That’s her daddy – Well, I–I didn’t ask him to sit next to me I sat next to him, and, you know– – Did you know that was coming? – No, I didn’t know I did not know that was coming – By the way, Kristine and Keith, after decision day, there was a little rumor floating around – Oh, God – About you all – What rumor? – Is that true, in the room that you were like, “We’re married, and you know what? We’re staying together.” – You know, we had a little excitement, yeah – A little – What? – You had a little moment? – Yeah, we had a little moment – You know, sort of, like, the excitement and adrenaline running in – And she looked so good on decision day, man

– Oh, I didn’t know where this was going – Wait, you were– – Yeah, our decision day – What? – You guys are married, so – So the crew was at lunch They’re like, “Oh, we’ll be back in, like, a half hour.” I was like, “Oh, I got enough time.” – Oh, my God – So decision day bed is – So TMI. Oh, my God One couple has a big, big, big, big, big announcement to make ♪ ♪ Kristine and Keith, would you like to share your big, big news? ♪ ♪ – So we’ve been doing a lot of work ♪ ♪ And, you know ♪ ♪ We are buying a house – We’re buying a house – We’re buying a house – I didn’t know where that was going [laughter] – ♪ I’m living a dream ♪ – So just the house and just the two of you in the house? – Yes, just the two of us – For now. For now – We were all looking I was like–I was like, “Oh, they’re getting the…” ♪ ♪ – ♪ I’m living the life ♪ – I was so ready. Like [laughter] – Okay, now that you are all “Married at First Sight” veterans, looking back on when you started this experiment, who here believes they were really ready for marriage? – I’m gonna go half – You know, I was ready for it, but I wasn’t quite sure I was ready for marrying a stranger – Yeah – Luke, you did not raise your hand. Tell us why – I feel like going in I believed I was ready, but in hindsight, I feel differently – Mm-hmm I have a question Do you feel like you learned a lot about yourself, so I guess, like – Moving forward – Yeah, moving forward it’ll be a completely different– – Yeah, absolutely I feel like this whole process has been really informative It’s definitely taught me that marriage is not easy, and you really need to be super clear with what you’re communicating to your partner and be very open to hear what they mean when they say their words – I think it’s very rough, and it’s tough, but if you can believe in yourself and you can handle it, then you can get through anything I mean, it’s–It’s a very short portion of your life to possibly have the outcome of your rest of your life with someone else – So the experts are actually starting their search for participants in Charlotte What advice do you have for future participants? AJ, I’m starting with you – Definitely go into this with an open mind, but I think that it all boils down to being comfortable and knowing who you are in the vetting process to begin with, and let them truly pair you with somebody – For who you are – For who you are and not for who you want to be or who you want to portray yourself as – If you’re doing this process, one thing, you definitely have to be honest, and I just think that if you are a type of person that it takes you forever to open up, or you know that it takes a lot to get you out of, like, your comfort zone, this may not be the best process for you – You have to think for two You’re no longer yourself You’re a unit together, and everything you do, everything you say is gonna affect the other person, so you need to think as a partnership now – Absolutely – I think that falls under “know who you are,” because I mean, some people are by nature selfish, and they can’t get past that They don’t even think they’re selfish, and that flaw will come out in this process – Yep – Don’t be throwing shade – I’m–I wasn’t–You’re making me feel guilty. I wasn’t– – Well, I mean, I agree with everyone’s advice here I think honesty is one of the number one things that you have to have in this process, because we’re being filmed constantly, and the truth always comes out And this is really intense, and this is really hard, but if–You know, sometimes it doesn’t work out, but I think that you should just don’t ever give up on love even, like, when you’re still in this process Like, there’s always a chance that you don’t still know that person fully, that there’s a chance that you could still fall in love with them, so even if it’s not going the right way, like, a month in to the process, like, I’d still suggest to everyone to ride it out to the end – Just go all in You know, go all in Give it everything you have Give it your best shot You know, like, push yourself really to your limit because it can be worth it at the end – All right, I like that I like that You know, this has been the biggest season of “Married at First Sight” ever I want to thank you all for being here and participating in this experiment and taking a gigantic leap of faith for love I’m your host, Kevin Frazier Good night We’ll see you next time ♪ ♪
