A single woman who agreed to marry a complete stranger on last night’s season premiere of Married at First Sight was unable to utter ‘I do’ after she confessed that she was ‘disappointed’ by her future husband’s physical appearance when she met him for the first time at the altar. On last night’s two-hour episode of the FYI-channel reality show, Ryan Ranellone, 29, happily agreed to marry 30-year-old Jaclyn Methuen, but the episode ended in a cliffhanger when she admitted she had doubts about her arranged marriage. ‘I first see Ryan, my gut just says: “Oh man, like this is him?”‘ she said. ‘The initial physical attraction really isn’t there right now.’
The grooms-to-be include Ryan DeNino, 29, from Staten Island. Mr DeNino, who owns his own consulting business, explained to the cameras that he has been single for one year after he and his girlfriend of five years broke up. Why does he want to get married at first site? ‘Knowing there were experts that would… get to know who I am, hopefully find me a match that would be compatible for me,’ he said.
Meanwhile Sean Varricchio, 35, an ER/trauma nurse from Jackson, New Jersey was on the lookout for a wife who is ‘athletic, intelligent, motivated and professional, with a good heart, and good family values’. ‘I have a science background, I’m very analytical and I thought there’s got to be something to this,’ he said.
