Let’s be honest – not a lot about Married At First Sight actually makes sense.
For instance, why would anyone genuinely seeking love try a method that has a frankly abysmal success rate? (Erin and Bryce are the only couple who met on the show and are still together).
However, last night fans noticed something that made even less sense than usual on the Channel Nine reality dating show.
As anyone watching knows, Sam Ball and Ines Basic are carrying out a (likely very staged) “affair” – secretly sexting each other while their matched partners Elizabeth and Bronson remain unaware.
During Sunday night’s commitment ceremony, both individuals chose to “stay” in the experiment, publicly to work on their relationships, but privately so they could continue their secret relationship.
Yet as viewers pointed out, this decision really didn’t make a lot of sense.
Because there’s nothing stopping Sam and Ines continuing their relationship outside of the show, in the real world. If that’s what they truly wanted, wouldn’t it have just been easier to choose to leave?
I just had the weirdest thought about Sam and Ines. I know this is crazy:
They could both choose leave and be together.

There’s no guarantee that their on-screen partners would have also chosen to “leave”, but neither cheater apparently saw the logic in even trying.
So Sam and Ines hatch a clever plan to string their partners along so they can continue their tryst. Someone needs to mention that it is actually possible to do the right thing, choose to leave and then they can do whatever the fk they want together. U know, off screen #MAFS
