Married At First Sight‘s Anthony started out as a seemingly nice guy, willing to laugh off Nadia’s avoidance of his attempt at a kiss on their wedding day.
Things began to splinter, however, when he bullied Cheryl for wanting to attempt a relationship with “runaway bride” partner Andrew.
After his emergence as the show’s “villain”, it’s only gotten worse.
Listen: The Recap talks about episode 14.
In a preview for Sunday night’s episode, the 33-year-old racing commentator confronts his “wife” for her unwillingness to have sex with him.
“For lack of a better word, you’ve been frigid,” he tells Nadia during the commitment ceremony.
You’re probably thinking, “Oh no, he didn’t.” But yes. Yes, he did.
Anthony calling Nadia “frigid” is jerk code for “she doesn’t want to have sex with me and therefore something is wrong with her”.
It’s a term usually reserved for the high school jock in a B-grade movie when the heroine won’t go to ‘second base’.
The red flags have been waving for a while, with several more rearing during a conversation with Nadia and her friends on her apartment’s rooftop.
In Tuesday night's episode, Anthony spoke openly about the couple's "problems with intimacy" with both producers and Nadia's friends.
