On tonight’s episode of Married at First Sight, psychologist Mel Schilling rips into an unsuspecting contestant.
“When you use language like that in relation to a woman, how do you expect her to respond to you?” she says.
“A tip from me to you? Don’t use language like that if you want any chance of a relationship.”
Watch MAFS expert, Mel Schilling, grill one of the contestants in tonight’s episode of Married at First Sight.
While we have our suspicions as to who Mel’s tirade could be direct at (Mike? Sam? Hopefully, both?), this season sees the experts step it up a notch in how they’re communicating to the couples.
Speaking to Mamamia, Sydney-based relationship expert and clinical psychologist, John Aiken, said viewers can expect the experts to give the contestants a tough love approach, which means the commitment ceremonies will be getting a lot juicier as a result.
“Our roles as experts at the commitment ceremonies is to really hammer home some of the frank truths of who they are and what they’re doing,” he said.
“We play a much tougher role on them. They’re very big personalities as you have seen and they need to be held accountable, so we do that.
“We’re much more direct in terms of making them reign in certain behaviour, so they start to acknowledge that it isn’t acceptable and if they continue, they’ll be single.”
