ICYMI on tonight’s ‘Twin Special’ of ‘Married at First Sight’ – which was comparatively dull AF against last night’s ep – we learnt that Sharon and Nick chose to stay married. While Michelle and Jesse FINALLY parted ways. Huzzah!
For all the avid watches of the absolutely addictive series, it was clear that Michelle had led on Jesse for literally the entirety of their reality TV marriage. As told to the cameras, she was never into him. Never. Nothing. Although, it must be said, he was ready and willing to stay with a chick that didn’t show the slightest interest in him.
The guy even created a bizarre analogy challenge for her to walk through some symbolic door with him. As if actually wanting to be someone’s wife should be some daunting task, in need of encouragement.
He has bonged on about that ‘door’ metaphor non-stop. Enough with the damn door. This tweet was an excellent suggestion. Time to invest in one of these babies, Michelle.

But in the end, we all got what we had been waiting for the entire series. Michelle broke Jesse’s still-beating heart. During the ceremony, she confessed to Jesse, she sees him as a friend, rather than a partner.
He was friend-zoned for the whole flipping nation to see, and Twitter had mixed feelings when the poor dude was finally shown the door.
To her credit, after leading him on for 7 weeks, she did let him down gently. #9married

I haven't seen someone put in the friendzone that hard since I walked out of the St.Doms Year 10 Disco #9married

Surely Jesse knew they were doomed, it wasn't just her that chose to stay every bloody week #9Married

The saddest part, however, was that Jesse blamed himself for not opening up sooner. It was never gonna happen, kid. Now, be free.
