Excuse us, but since Wednesday night, we’ve been trying to work out what the hell went down between Aleks Markovic and Ivan Sarakula while filming Married at First Sight.
They went from this year’s sure-fire disaster couple, to our unexpected favourites, but then came Wednesday night’s dinner party.
But first a bit of context: During their home stays, Aleks expressed that she wasn’t romantically interested in Ivan, leaving him devastated. A few days later at the dinner party, fellow contestant Michael decided it was his duty to raise the couple’s private issues with the group, starting fiery debates about whether they’d slept together, and whether Aleks had been dating another man during the experiment.
Things took a bizarre turn when Michael and Josh revealed that Ivan had a) asked his friends to publicly discuss the fact that he and Aleks had been sleeping together, and b) then proceeded to act as though he wanted it kept private, out of respect for Aleks.
We're so confused.
Wednesday night's very tense episode ended with Aleks storming out of the room, with Ivan chasing after her, trying to convince her she could trust him.
But with Sunday night's Commitment Ceremony fast approaching, and some more gossip emerging from fellow contestants, we need to get to the bottom of what the hell went on with Aleks and Ivan, and who is actually telling the truth.
MAFS' Aleks explains what actually happened on her date with Michael's alleged mystery man. Post continues below.
