The deeply unsettling moment on Married at First Sight last night that involved a... toaster.

There was an incident that occurred on Tuesday night’s episode of Married at First Sight that has gone very much under the radar.

Yes, Virgin Matt lost his virginity on national television.

Yes, a man named Bronson told his new wife Ines that “as a human, you’re a horrible, horrible person,” and was told in return that perhaps he should, “grow a ball sack”.

But did anyone f*cking see Elizabeth put a goddamn piece of supreme pizza in the goddamn toaster like it was no big deal?

HOW COULD YOU.
Madam. Why are you doing that.

Early on in the episode, Elizabeth is pictured walking around her hotel room, which she appears to be locked in, until her fake husband Sam returns from a funeral that may or may not be... real.

And then she picks up a piece of pizza, which by the toppings we believe to be of the supreme variety, and places it quickly and haphazardly inside the hotel toaster.

We're horrified.

Firstly, no. 

Secondly, why.

And thirdly, ALL THE TOPPINGS ARE GOING TO FALL OFF AND THEN BURN AT THE BOTTOM FOREVER.

We never see the toaster again, likely because it was soon after set on fire and thrown out the window.

After re-watching the scene and analysing what took place, we have three important thoughts.

1. Won't your toast taste like pizza for the rest of eternity?

CORRECT.

For some, this is not a worry, as toast flavoured pizza sounds like quite a treat.

But for others, toast that tastes like toast sounds more appetising at 8am, particularly without burned eight day old cheese on it.
These are the exact phrases we find ourselves yelling at the TV while watching Married at First Sight. Post continues after video.

2. No seriously. Won't the oil set shit on fire?

According to our thorough research, the excessive oil from the pizza would fall to the bottom of the toaster, and SET ALIGHT the next time you put something in there. You can't just go pouring oil in toasters. It's against the rules.

Also, other toppings such as cheese, meat and peppers, will inevitably fall from the pizza base and live underneath. They will also set on fire, which will spread to the kitchen, the entire room and then the building more broadly.

3. YOU NOW HAVE A PIZZA WITH NO TOPPINGS SO YOU MIGHT AS WELL HAVE TOAST.

I didn't mean to raise my voice, but what is a pizza with no toppings if not just a piece of bread?

There is no glue on pizza (we looked it up) so the toppings are only stuck there by sticky cheese. Placing it vertically for any length of time will force the best bits to fall into an abyss which is a modern day tragedy.

The scene was upsetting and confronting for viewers.

This is far and away the most ridiculous thing that has ever happened on Married at First Sight and almost 24 hours later, we remain... shook.
