Eight people. Four couples.
One ridiculous reality show that craps all over the sacred concept of marriage.
Yup: Married at First Sight returned with new episodes on Tuesday night!
On yesterday's Season 8 premiere, viewers met Kate Sisk and Luke Cuccurullo, the former of whom s just dying to fall in love and the latter of whom runs a speed dating company.
So he's frequently around new couples and is familiar with the world of meeting someone and quickly trying to establish a connection with this person.
Both parties were psyched to exchange vows.
On his wedding day, Luke realized that a woman in the crowd actually attended one of his speed dating events.
Then, when Kate headed down the aisle, he whispered to his groomsmen that he had actually met this woman before. Weird, right?
But also all we know for now, as Luke looked concerned over this revelation, yet fans will need to wait until next week to see if he’s happy with his decision to marry Kate.
We now turn to Jasmine McGriff and Will Guess.
McGriff was unable to fully enjoy her nuptials because her family disapproved of this entire process. They were very traditional and, understandably, acted aghast that Jasmine was actually going through with marrying someone she just met.
She was overwhelmed. She was stressed. She was questioning her decision-making process...
... and then she met Guess.
Almost immediately, newlyweds were each cracking jokes and laughing at the absurdity what they were doing; it all felt very natural.
“I could see myself falling in love with Jasmine,” Will said.
Stephanie Sersen and AJ Vollmoeller, for their part, were both quite energetic and ready to find love.
On papter, therefore, they seemed like a great match. Heck, Stephanie even admitted right away that she’d be “devastated” if it didn’t work out... which is somewhat crazy when you consider the set-up here.
When the two finally met, Stephanie realized she had never dated someone as outgoing as AJ and said his “enthusiasm is really cute.”
The new husband and wife spent the evening talking their affection for partying and drinking, so they seemed to be hitting things off well.
We'll see if it lasts.
Finally, we arrive at Keith Dewar and Kristine Killingsworth.
One (Keith) is an introvery and the other (Kristine) is rather conservative, so they felt that it was important to let loose before their wedding at their bachelor and bachelorette parties.
They just had to get it all out, you know?
“I would love somebody to pull me out of this little funk that I’m in,” Keith said, not exactly inspiring confidence that he's prepared for marriage.
In the end, both spouses-to-be drank a lot of alcohol and enjoyed their friends – and a few strippers – the night before they were tied down.
For life? Or just for a few weeks? We'll be tuning in this season to find out!
