By the looks of it Married at First Sight Season 3 is not going to see the light of the day. The social experiment that seemed to have hit the right note in the first season ended as an epic failure when each of the couples in the second season of Married at First Sight ended up having a divorce.
According to Realty TV, the first season of Married at First Sight was somewhat of a breakthrough, but it was the exact opposite from then on. One consolation that the viewers of the American series can have is the show has met a similar fate in Australia and Denmark.
The one couple that got the major share of attention in Married at First Sight Season 2 was Kate Stewart and Jason Knowles. They were the couple that decided to end their marriage just two weeks into it.
The real drama according to Mirror UK, however, started when Kate’s friends found a profile of Jason in Tinder. Tinder is a well known dating app that lets you connect to similar minded people who are in the same area as you are.
When Jason was confronted about this, he said that he has not cheated on Kate in the two weeks that they were together and he has made that profile on Tinder when he realized that things will not work out between the two of them.
Jason went on to say that he didn’t even consummate on their honeymoon. He confessed that he would hang out with the bar staff instead of spend time with Kate in Ireland, where they were honeymooning.
While there has been no official confirmation that Married at First Sight Season 3 has been cancelled, the page that called individuals for casting for the show has been closed. Movie News Guide is of the opinion that this is clear indication that the show might not come back for the third season.
The second season of Married at First Sight saw all the couples filing for the divorce. The couples, Ryan Ranellone and Jaclyn Methuen, Sean Varricchio and Davina Kullar, Ryan De Niro and Jessica Castro have all ended their marriage.
The separation for Jessica Castro and Ryan De Niro was a nasty one with the two being in a legal spat. Jessica Castro has filed for a restraining order against her ex-husband Ryan De Niro because he had threatened to harm her and her family. Ryan has denied the whole incident and even shared a photo of the restraining order saying that the truth will ultimately find the way to come out.
The show was based on the fact that match making is a science where compatibility can be measured between two individuals. In earlier days, arranged marriages were the norm and they were way more successful than the love marriages that take place now-a-days.
However, what the psychologists, who formed the panel, couldn’t realize was that connection cannot be made by science and emotions and love and respect is something that is based on the individual and it cannot be made in a scientific environment. The failure of the show has also resulted in a failure of the social experiment on which the show was based.
Married at First Sight bring together two strangers on their wedding day and makes them start a married life together. The pairing is done by an expert panel of psychologists who study these individuals closely and then pick them up according to their similarities and pair them.
