It would be the boys night to end them all — and it drew a line in the sand between the boys and the men.
As you’re surely aware by now, the husbands of Married at First Sight came together for a night that cast quite a light on male ‘locker room banter’, after contestant Andrew spoke with great disdain about his marriage to Cheryl.
Of note was when he mocked all parts of her personality and groped two air boobs after being asked what he looks at when Cheryl is speaking. (Her breasts. He meant he prefers to look at her breasts.)
For those who missed it, Andrew also took aim at how his wife spoke and poked fun at her driving skills. “You talk about the affection being too much… the conversation seems too much for Cheryl,” Andrew said to his fellow grooms.
But in all the objectification and grossly lewd conversations, there were two saving graces of the ordeal: Sean and Simon.
The two refused to engage in the blokey banter, with Simon later telling the producers, "Cheryl didn't deserve to be spoken of in such a manner". Sean, meanwhile, said he"thought it was pretty f****** s***".
When it came to 'cheers-ing' beers, the duo refused, each later labelling the whole incident "disappointing".
Now, speaking about the incident for the first time, Sean told news.com.au he "didn't realise it would be this big".
However, he denies the "hero" tag so many have bestowed upon him, saying his response was natural and one born from a strident belief in everyone deserving respect.
