Last night, we watched as Married at First Sight’s Cheryl and Andrew finally decided they no longer wanted to be sort-of-not-really fake married to each other anymore.
The break up was long overdue – given they hadn’t been living together for weeks and very early on, it was obvious it wasn’t going to work.
One of the most painful moments in their train wreck of a love story was during the home visits, when Cheryl was in Perth spending time with Andrew and his family. During a picnic on the beach, Andrew sang a song for Cheryl, and then went in for a kiss.
But the 25-year-old recoiled, and while covering her face with her hand, said, “I don’t want to kiss you.”
We all wanted to die. And we've spent the better part of the last few weeks trying to forget this awkward encounter ever happened.
Because we've come up with a theory. And everyone knows theories about reality television are the best kind of theories.
You might notice that when Cheryl says the words, "I don't want to kiss you," her lips aren't actually visible. They're covered by her hand. Perhaps this is because she didn't actually say those words at that time. Instead, the audio has been placed there from another scene.
Indeed, after the awkward kiss episode aired, Andrew wrote a now-deleted comment on the Married at First Sight Facebook page suggesting this might be the case.
