Oh, Married at First Sight.
It was all going so well.
Five sets of complete strangers were married, sent on honeymoon and left to figure out this thing called marriage all under the watchful eye of film crews.
But when footage of the highly anticipated dinner party episode where couples meet one another aired earlier this week, a major conspiracy theory emerged.
Were Craig and Andy a late addition to the show?
We just want more Craig and Andy. Is that too much to ask? Source: Married at First Sight.
The first clue that suggests they were is the number of couples featured on this season of the show.
In seasons one and two, there were only four couples. It was a nice, solid, easy to work with number that allowed two couples to be the focal point of every episode. So why, in season three, are there now five?
If producers had planned to include a same-sex couple all along, wouldn't one hetero couple simply have been subbed out so that the tried and true formula of seasons past could still be adhered to? Which leads me to the next clue that strengthens this theory.
Where were Craig and Andy at the dinner party?
