Married At First Sight‘s Deb made it painfully clear from the start that her “husband” John just wasn’t what she ordered. As hard as he might have wanted to try, the single dad just couldn’t be Polynesian.
Monday night’s episode saw the final breakdown of their on-screen marriage, with a disappointed John writing Deb a heartfelt letter ending the relationship.
However, it seems the 53-year-old hasn’t had enough of televised blind dates. That probably explains why he agreed to a mingle party with several single women organised by Channel Nine’s A Current Affair.
Listen: Dr Trisha from Married At First Sight explains why Deb was not matched with a Polynesian man.
Apparently, the show had no trouble rounding up about 15 women keen to start a relationship with the father-of-two, who appeared on MAFS after divorcing his first wife.
In fact, the show says it was inundated with emails requesting to meet John and organised the night to give them their chance.
Ahead of the party, aired during Wednesday night’s episode, John said he was excited but nervous.
“Once they meet me the might be disappointed,” he joked, before emerging from behind a curtain to a room of happy women.
Like an episode of The Bachelor with a slightly older cast, the single women cosied up to John and vied for his attention as the cameras looked on.
The women certainly had some kind words to say about the eligible bachelor, both before and after meeting him.
