We had the Married at First Sight Second Chances premiere tonight on Lifetime, or was this The Bachelor and Chris Harrison just didn’t show up? David Norton and Vanessa Nelson were back getting a second chance at love, but can they find it on MAFS Second Chances? Check out the details below in our Married at First Sight Second Chances recap!
Apparently David and Vanessa were fan favorites from Season 3? I missed that memo, as I did end up liking David after he started the season as a douche. Vanessa made it work in her marriage, but then they split after the show aired. Seems shady to me, so why bring her back?
Warning: This post contains spoilers from MAFS Second Chances tonight on Lifetime, so stop reading now if you don’t want to know what happened!!!
To start, hundreds of guys and girls show up to date Vanessa and David. The whole show will be 14 weeks long and at the end of it, they must pick one guy/girl they want to start a relationship with. That is going to be a long process, right?
Things kick off with speed dating, as each contestant gets three minutes to impress David and Vanessa on Married at First Sight Second Chances. If they do, they get an invite to a group date. This was awkward and hard to watch at times, as it was like the limo arrivals on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, except David and Vanessa had friends there to watch with them!
We see guys trying to be all cool. No true standouts to me, just yet. Myles was definitely an early leader, it seemed. David had more characters arrive, as we had one lady who actually was very close to being the match for David on Married at First Sight Season 3! The experts picked Ashley instead and we see how that all worked out! He also had a lady he went out with before and had interest in, but they were both dating others. We have angel’s wings and dancers in the mix.
FIRST BIG GROUP DATE
From the group that showed up for speed dating, Vanessa and David both invited 50 of them back for a group date event. David had a barbecue and Vanessa hosted a mixology night. They were just trying to get to know the people a little better. By the end of the night, they would have to lower that number to 25!
David was definitely feeling overwhelmed, as the ladies were interrupting and he was not in a happy place. The guys were having arm wrestling contests for Vanessa’s love. They were doing whatever they could to stand out and move on. At this point, there are too many people to remember names until we get to the real daters.
JUST GO HOME
Vanessa and David started the elimination process. They both pulled people aside into a separate room. Once there, they came in to tell them they were sending them home! The guys were shocked, as they thought they were the ones moving on. The girls were shocked too, especially Tara, the angel wings lady.
While David was celebrating with the ladies that made it, Tara came back and said she was there for the right reasons and deserved a chance to prove that. He basically wants to say no, but she is begging him. That is where things ended, as we find out if he for sure sends her home or keeps her around for now.
