Taking the leap of faith

The ‘Married at First Sight’ tour

Q: What do you wish you would have done differently in the process?

What I wish I had done in a different way – nothing so far. I think the mistakes I made while on the show had to happen so that I could learn and see for myself what needed to be done and changed.

I don’t regret anything I’ve done in my life. Everything you do in your life, whether good or bad, has a lesson; you just have to pay attention and make sure you correct the things that need to be corrected.

Q: What was it like to get to know and connect with the other castmates?

It was nice to connect with the other castmates. I think throwing did a good job with all sorts of personalities this season. I think viewers watching can connect to multiplayer on this season of MAFS.

It was also beneficial to form some legitimate relationships and bonds between the other members. Most of us are friends and stay connected. It’s good to have someone who has walked your steps for growth and feedback purposes.

Q: Is there anything the experts told you that you really liked?

My conversation with Pastor Cal. What I liked most was that when you converse or disagree with each other, you should approach the conversation with an objective tone not a tone of wanting to be right or wrong . It will help you to come to a resolution and not an argument.
