“Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya! Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty momma! Ooh I wanna take you to Kokomo, we’ll get there fast and then we’ll take it slow…” -this song by The Beach Boys is the perfect Honeymoon song for the Married At First Sight couples in my humble opinion. 😉
Way back when I was 7-8 years old (Over 20 years ago! Gosh, I am getting old!) I would sit in the yard and listen to the “Kokomo song” on my cassette tape over and over again. I remember in order to listen to it “on repeat” you had to take the tape out, turn it around, and fast forward or something like that in order to rewind the other side so that you could take it back out, turn it over and listen to the song again. Phew, that’s a lot of work! Thank God for iPods! Kids today don’t even know half the struggle! 😉
Married At First Sight: Honeymoon Time
But back to my initial thought — when I think of Honeymoon time this song just pops into my head! These Married At First Sight couples certainly got to their honeymoon spot real fast; we found out one couple had “magical” sex and another just threw around addiction accusations. (If you want to learn some more about these couples just click here. If you are just beginning to watch Married At First Sight this week, this blog will catch ya up to speed!)
Lillian Vilchez and Tom Wilson
These two are AHHHDORABLY in love — at first sight. I mean, if you don’t know their story you are gonna have to click here real fast because it’s too cute to miss out on. I’d go out on a very weak limb to say that both Lillian and Tom had a great time on their honeymoon — these two consummated their marriage! I told you they would! Lillian described their first night doing the deed as “magical.” And Tom cannot keep his hands off Lillian. The next day of their honeymoon they spend at the beach. Tom politely massages sunscreen lotion on Lillian’s back … and his hands just happen to slide all the way down to her booty as he continues to massage the lotion in. Tom’s heard in a voiceover saying “I enjoy every inch, every little morsel of her back.” Yeah, Tom. We can see that.
If you’ve been watching you’ll know Lilly (as she goes by) is a real estate agent and Tom works on re-designing the interior of yachts. If not, I’ll share more because it’s kinda important to their story (and what goes down tonight).
Lilly drives a really nice car (we haven’t seen it but I’ve seen upcoming commercials where she admits that her car is quite fancy) and I assume she lives in a nice home since she is in luxury real estate day in and day out. Tom, on the other hand, lives in a bus. Yes, you read correctly…He lives in a bus. And needless to say, he is very clear that he doesn’t like materialistic girls. Well, their hot and heavy romance may fizzle into nothing because their honeymoon is about to end and it’s back to the real world … and Tom still hasn’t told Lilly he lives in a bus. Hmm, how is Lilly going to react when she finds out her new stranger hubby lives in the most mobile of mobile homes. I wonder if Tom will immediately categorize her as “materialistic” if she has a normal reaction? (And I think freaking out would be a normal reaction- ha!) I guess we will find out tonight. (And I’ll be praying that the stars align and Lilly has a very abnormally calm and cool reaction. I mean, his bus is pretty cool. He completely remodeled it. Maybe Lilly will like living small—it seems to be the new hip thing to do now-a-days!)
Sonia Granados and Nick Pendergrast
While Tom and Lilly are having magical sex, Nick and Sonia are just becoming “friends.” Last week I heard Nick put these two in the friend zone while they were chatting at their romantic honeymoon dinner. He literally said something just as blunt as “we are in the friend zone” while Sonia just smiled and kind of giggled it off. Eeek, I’m sure that was tough for Sonia to hear. She’s made it very clear she is attracted to him. She admitted to practically gawking at him when he took his shirt off.
But hey, don’t knock the “friend zone.” It could definitely blossom into something more. It did for my husband and me. They were married at first sight—they’ve only known each other a couple days. Give them time. 😉
Heather Seidel and Derek Schwartz
I told you I’d go out on a thin limb to say Lilly and Tom had a super happy honeymoon, but when it comes to Heather and Derek — not so much! These two are walking on very thin ice during their honeymoon, and it seems to be cracking more with each step. First it was Derek’s messy ways. Derek said he was clean and organized, but Heather wasn’t buying it. Then it was his smoking. Heather was really annoyed by this. You could see it during their bike ride when she was riding way ahead of Derek and wouldn’t slow down even after he asked. She finally told Derek what the problem was: his smoking. She said he was smoking 2-3 times a day. As early as when they’d wake up.
When I interviewed Derek for Married At First Sight: Unfiltered I found out that he had asked her permission to smoke and she said it was ok. However, apparently the amount he was smoking was not ok. When Heather told him she didn’t like it, Derek stopped smoking. But the damage was already done. After a couple hours apart Derek tried to make amends by finding Heather to chat with her, but he stepped too far on that thin ice and he fell right through to the icy cold water. The conversation ended with her crying and accusing him of being addicted and not what she expected in a husband (in more or less words). Derek shouted back “Oh yeah? Well you’re an alcoholic! You drink all day!” Just kidding. He didn’t say the “oh yeah” part, but the rest of this argument is real and it sounds like one of those fights you have in 5th grade. You know those “Your momma so fat she….” jokes? Yeah, you get it. And I don’t think these two are joking. Yikes!
My husband and I had a similar smoking problem during the first few weeks after we were married at first sight. But my problem with him wasn’t so much the smoking as it was the lying. My husband lied to me about it and tried hiding it from me. At least Derek isn’t doing that. It took me a while to cool off and realize in the grand scheme of things it wasn’t so bad…the smoking, I mean. But we also met in the middle and learned to compromise. Doug got himself an E-Cig that has no smell and no taste. HE also rolls the window down everything he takes a puff from his “puffer” as I call it. Hopefully this will happen for Heather and Derek as well!
Do you think Heather over reacted about the smoking?
