'Married At First Sight' is back for season nine in North Carolina and of course, I am skeptical. Last season, we had Luke, who was so mentally abusive all season, it was disgusting. I could not believe he was still on the show when it ended after all of his poor behavior but then I saw how Kate just accepted it and realized the experts were at fault for not putting her in serious counseling. So now, eight new singles were taking on the challenge and I was so excited to see who was paired with who and take a guess at who would survive and who would fail. After the season nine premiere, here is who I think will stay together because I always like to start on a positive note:
-Matthew Gwynne and Amber Bowles: he's a professional basketball player and she is a teacher who lives for basketball. He needs a family after his parents split and hers is super welcoming. It is literally a match made on the court. However, I am sure Matt will love the bball talk and being able to challenge his wife on the court but amber is an admitted tomboy who does not wear make-up or dress up much. I feel like she might have to integrate some of the beauty she brought to their wedding day every once in a while, just to keep the spice alive. She does not want to completely become one of the boys. If she does a few girlie things, I truly believe the experts may have gotten this one right.
-Gregory Okotie and Deonna McNeil: they are both professionals very strong in their relationships with God. They even had prayer circles with loved ones prior to the wedding so if this is what connects and bonds them, along with other amazing life experiences, this could be great.
I wanted Jamie and Elizabeth (they get married next week) to work out because she is wild and fun, just what he is looking for (made clear as he was hitting on the boobtastic poker dealer at the bachelor party). However, I think his brother is more her speed and she will just be turned off by his nerdiness and desire to try to be cool, which he really fails at. She's the fire and he's the water. As for Iris and Keith, I love Keith but Iris just loves Iris so I really think this is going to be one of those up in the air situations. She has saved herself for marriage so I hope he is sooooo good, she becomes a fiend and this changes everything! What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @3icecubes!
