Married at First Sight 2016 Australia made headlines with the announcement of their first gay couple on the show. Hence, the anticipation to see if the relationship between Andy and Craig would lead to forever.However, problems came early on for season 3’s first same-sex couple. Andy nearly called off their wedding after Craig invited his former partner to the ceremony. Alas, the tension carried over to their honeymoon.
Craig chose to leave his new groom soon after they arrived in New Zealand for their honeymoon. Their separate video confessions revealed their doubts about one another as a potential lifelong partner for the other. Now, Craig Roach shared his regrets about joining the reality TV program. The 41-year old hairdresser took to Facebook to post his thoughts about his experiences on Married at First Sight 2016 Australia.
“Nothing you see is what was the actual events. I was filmed for five days with barely any sleep. We were required by the producers to shoot some footage of us getting to know each other as they didn’t have any. So I agreed to (do) two scenes of us spending time together that was all scripted,” Craig wrote.
Channel Nine has yet to respond to Mail Online’s request for a comment following Craig’s post. This is not the first instance a former contestant spoke against the reality show. Season 2 bride Clare Verrall went on a Twitter rant throughout the finale of Married at First Sight 2016 Australia. However, her outbursts against the show failed to gain sympathy among its more than 1 million viewers. Nevertheless, her memes did prove entertaining for some.
