Episode Two:

This episode introduces us to two new couples: Jessika and Mick, and Melissa and Dino. This time we get a sneak peek as to the real science behind the experiment, which seems to be just the contestants filling out buzz-feed quizzes in a weirdly sterile environment, but we are willing to run with it.

Jessika and Mick seem like an oddly matched couple, as country bumpkin Mick is paired with an Instagram obsessed Jess, but opposites attract right? The two seem to be hitting it off until Mick’s best man gives a somewhat inappropriate speech which sends Jess’s family into an angry spiral. Both her dad and brother do not seem like the type of people you want to meet in a dark alley, but their confrontation of Mick following the speech is pretty tame. In the end, the two prepare to embark on their honeymoon with all of the groom’s limbs still intact.

Melissa and Dino also seem like a strange pair, as the bubbly and rather over the top talent agent is set up with the calmest and most serene man alive. Dino arrives on a horse, which is super weird as a upstages his brides entrance, but all is forgiven when he drops down on one knee for a proposal. “There is something I feel every woman should deserve at least once in her life,” declares the groom. How very sweet. The two wed and it is lovely, and rather awkward.

Cutest Moment of the Ep:

Most Hilarious Moment of the Ep:

Jess’s brother gives a bit of a glare towards Mick’s best man following his inappropriate speech. What is humorous was not the look, but the number of times that one stare was replayed. I think I lost count at 100…
