    Married at First Sight S14:EP2 Nice Day for a Wicked Wedding

    **Trigger Warning** We talk some weight-related stuff, body image, gym culture, etc in the first 9 minutes. Skip if you don't want to hear.
    Amye and Leslie sit down to cover MAFS Season 14, episode 2: Nice Day for a Wicked Wedding
    Two more couples make it down the aisle. Michael and Jasmina and Olajuwon and Katina. Both couples are stunning and seem to hit it off. Jasmina is a secret nerd and we are here for it. Mark and Lindsey/Jodie Foster are dancing at their reception, while Lindsey is secretly wishing death upon Mark's cats. Alyssa and Chris might be this season's snooze fest, and Stephen and Noi prepare to take their walk next week. Leslie discovers where the name LIFETIME network came from, Amye has a teeny crush on Steven, and we both agree Olajuwon/Isaac is the train wreck we are all here to see. Also- what do people do if they don't watch TV???

    Married at First Sight S14:EP1 The Weddings are Coming! The Weddings are Coming!

    Married at First Sight S14:EP1 The Weddings are Coming! The Weddings are Coming!

    Amye and Leslie sit down to cover the first real episode of MAFS, season 14.
    We have a lot of thoughts on Mark the Shark and Olajuwon in particular, and while we think Lindsey is annoying, we appreciated her scenes at the wedding.
    Leslie has some territorial beef with the city of Boston, and Amye has the cheapest taste in wine ever. Beau Bridges, Kip from Napoleon Dynamite, and Jodie Foster all make surprise appearances on this episode.
    We also introduce a new feature: Maid of Honor or Best Man and Who is Going Home with the DJ?

    MAFS: Married at First Sight S13:EP19: Reunion Part Two AND Where Are They Now?

    MAFS: Married at First Sight S13:EP19: Reunion Part Two AND Where Are They Now?

    This is it! Our last episode of the MAFS Houston season, 13. 

    In this episode, Amye and Leslie recap the second half of the reunion and we cover some highlights of the "Where Are They Now?" special. 

    We get some context around Bao and Johnny, but we are still not fans. Potato goes on a date and it's super awkward, Myrla and Johnny are careening towards coupledom and we are not happy about it, and like the rest of America, we just want to hug Gil.  Zack and Michaela continue to fight like high schoolers, but Michaela is shadowboxing now, so it's alright. Oh, and Jachel are sticking it out (but don't worry, he has to win over Amye's favorite supporting character, Lirice.) 

    Thank you all so much for listening! Make sure you subscribe so you get our new episodes when Season 14 drops!

    MAFS: Married at First Sight S13:EP18: MAFS Houston Reunion Part One

    MAFS: Married at First Sight S13:EP18: MAFS Houston Reunion Part One

    MAFS world, we are shook. Up is down, down is up, and everything we thought was true was a lie. If you felt this way after watching the Married at First Sight Houston Reunion Part One, we see you. 

    The couples meet with host Kevin Frazier for a postmortem on their marriages. We learn Jachel may not be the perfect couple after all, Brett and Ryan are still boring (at least we get some glimpses of Baxter), Michaela and Zach are still high schooling it all over the stage, but the big shock came from Gil and Myrla. Was Myrla fooling us all? Did production do her dirty? We were wrong about everything and strongly consider never podcasting again.  (That's a lie, we will be back.)

    MAFS: Married at First Sight S13:EP17: DECISION DAY!!!!

    MAFS: Married at First Sight S13:EP17: DECISION DAY!!!!

    Join Amye and Leslie as we cover the final "regular" episode of Season 13, episode 17: Decision Day!

    The couples sit down and finally make the biggest decision of their lives- will they stay together? Or will they get a divorce? We were very surprised by some of these decisions, and we break it all down for you! (And we were very happy to see our beloved Baxter again in a flashback!)

    MAFS: Married at First Sight S13:EP16: Weighing the Decision

    MAFS: Married at First Sight S13:EP16: Weighing the Decision

    Join Amye and Leslie as they sit down and cover Married at First Sight Season 13, Episode 16: Weighing the Decision.

    The couples have only one week left because somehow the producers have stretched eight weeks into almost 20 episodes.

    Jose and Rachel disagree over the meaning of the word "trip," Bao and Johnny continue to overthink everything, Gil and Myrla have yet another discussion about her shopping and spending, Brett and Ryan spend two minutes together in the same space, and Michaela and Zack hooked up.

    Notable side characters: Michael's amazing sister is back, Bao has another friend that's not Sara, Ryan knows another unremarkable dude, and Rachel's friend Lirice is HERO of the night when she tells Rachel, "The notecards are trash."

    Do you think we should cover a past season? We are considering season 6, which was the first Boston season. Let us know! You can message us on Facebook or Instagram!

MAFS

Finally an awesome podcast on MAFS. LOVED their podcast so much I listened twice! Amye and Leslie showcase their fine arts advanced degrees in creative fiction and non-fiction writing as they provide character analyses of each person getting married. There is also a lot of fun girl talk, sharing life experiences during these unusual times.
