Welcome back to MAFs lessons; the only class where you actually love what you’re learning. Today we’re learning one rule and one rule only: don’t make a fool of yourself when there are cameras around.
Unfortunately, given certain events that have unfolded, it seems that the MAFS participants should have gone to GOAT school first. Let’s take an in-depth look into the lives of Hayley, David, Vanessa and Chris.
If you’re a big fan of MAFS, we spoke about the season premiere on this episode of It’s Been A Big Day For…
Hayley: Just Relax & For The Love Of God, Don’t Rap
Ah, Hayley. The entertaining, ex-drug user, who turned the tide via fitness. Her story may be inspirational, but some of her scenes are not. We couldn’t help but cringe as this bride walked down the aisle yelling at her new husband from afar and stopping mid-walk to talk to people on the way. Also, the beatboxing and rapping skills displayed at the reception were sub-par, to say the least.
David: Don’t Wear Ridiculous Socks
The award for Australia’s favourite country-bumpkin goes to the very lovable and adorable, David. David actually held his own pretty well in this episode. Even after copping disapproval from his conservative parents, he still welcomed his new bride in with open arms, showing nothing but positivity for the entire hour-and-a-half. The only foolishness that David displayed was walking down the aisle wearing socks with photos of his dog printed on it. C’mon David, not the time.
Vanessa: Don’t Let Insecurities Get The Best Of You
My heart broke for Vanessa this episode. She’s incredibly stunning, she’s funny and she’s got a great personality, yet this episode was filled with doubt, second-guesses and vulnerability! It’s not that the actions were foolish, it’s more we just felt really bad for her the whole time. In the words of Queen RuPaul, “If you can’t love yourself, how the hell are you going to love somebody else.” Love yourself girl, because we love you!
Chris: Don’t Hold Onto Secrets
Chris seems like a lovely person. He’s a social worker and father of two children. However, by keeping his kids a secret from his new wife, in an effort to tell her at the perfect time, he fell short in responding hits that Vanessa was dropping. Foolish? Kind of. Sad? Very much so. We certainly hope these two lovebirds change their ways the next time we see them!
If you haven’t done your MAFs homework, make sure you catch up on previous lessons, where we learnt how to meet people in a socially acceptable way and also how crappy friends can ruin a relationship.
