Married at First Sight is back for yet another week and the drama certainly isn’t dying down.

At this week’s commitment ceremony, Jessika and Dan followed through on their promise to stay in the competition with their partners Mick and Tamara to continue their secret cheating scandal.

But it wasn’t just Jessika and Dan’s decision that had fans frustrated during tonight’s episode.

After spending last week arguing to the point where they completely ended things, Heidi and Mike had fans particularly frustrated on the couch tonight.

And it’s easy to see why.

After telling Heidi that he feels like he “could try and fall in love with her” earlier this week, Mike told the experts that he feels like he’s walking on eggshells around his wife.

"I feel like I'm in damage control a lot of the time."

"Heidi doesn't like me calling it 'being moody' It feels like she reacts, you know, way over the top to something that might bother her. It could be something that I say to her that's, frankly, you know, innocuous, but it just sets her off," he said.

"I feel like I'm in damage control a lot of the time."

Yep, another blatant case of gaslighting.

And to make matters even more, John was on Mike's sideclaiming that the couple's marriage breakdown is all Heidi's fault.

Erm, what?


"I don't like what I'm seeing," John said.

"I think you're sabotaging this."

"You say, Heidi, that you're prepared to do whatever it takes to make this work. I don't think you do. I think you're sabotaging this," he continued.

"I don't think you want this. 'Cause the way you're acting... he's not gonna last. You guys are just starting to become people that are drifting apart."

"Just settle, Heidi. Don’t sabotage your relationship, Heidi. Do you want to end up single, Heidi?"

In the end, to make matters even more confusing, Heidi decided to stay in the competition for yet another week with Mike.

Here's how Australia reacted to the experts advice for Heidi:
