As ‘Married at First Sight Australia’ crosses the halfway mark, so do the couples that have somehow lasted the distance. So far, we’ve waved goodbye to John and Deborah; Micheal and Scarlett; and Jonathan and Cheryl (then hello to Andrew and Cheryl).
One marriage that has stayed together despite one partner displaying absolutely zilch interest in the other is twin Michelle and fruit store merchant Jesse.
It seemed a given that the two are heading for heartache. However, Jesse has thrown a spanner in the works, uploading to his Instagram overnight a pic of him and wife Michelle – looking ever the loved-up couple.
The random overshare has begged the question: are they actually still together?! Out of all the couples to survive a reality TV marriage, no one would have expected this.
Especially as it’s pretty clear that Michelle does not like her husband…like at all. From disparaging remarks about his personality, living situation, lack of romance and even more recently, the tone of his skin. She even forced a spray tan on the poor bloke.
From what we’re shown on camera, it’s clear that Michelle is not feelin’ Jesse. But then again week after week she has surprisingly chosen to stay in their marriage. Maybe we’re not seeing the whole story. Could reality TV be not telling us the whole truth? Surely not.
The image of the two is also in stark contrast to the rumours which have insinuated that Michelle had hooked up with fellow MAFS star Andrew (aka Jonesy).
It might just be a case of keeping up appearances, as Jesse captioned his image with a comment about getting a fake tan with Michelle – a nod to last night’s ep. But clearly, the two are still close and on good terms.
