Here's A Tribute To The Greatest One Liners From Married At First Sight’s Cyrell
You ain't no king ding-a-ling.
After 7 weeks, Cyrell and Nic could go no further. The couple could go no further. They simply didn’t work and although it took an extra week from Cyrell and another awkward brother confrontation later, they agreed to go their separate ways.
Forget Romeo and Juliet, those people from The Notebook and The Human Centipede, this is the end of one of the greatest love stories of all time.
They were a foot above the rest.
Cyrell was the light in the dark, dark tunnel that was Married At First Sight.
She called it as it was and was honest…like sure, very openly honest and opinionated but goddamn it she was a treasure.
And in a show filled with fake lips and fake personalities, it’s refreshing to see someone who told it like it was, complained when they weren’t given wine and got violent at the drop of a hat because frankly, Cyrell is who we’d be if we went on the “experiment”.
Cyrell may not have found love on the show but she has a found a place in our hearts.
Married At First Sight Has Waged A Dangerous War On The Perception Of Masculinity And They Need To Fix It
"Be a man" ain't gonna cut it.
Married At First Sight is flawed beyond belief, the original format isn’t working and it feels like each seasons ‘drama’ is turned up for the sake of entertainment and nothing has exemplified it more than the pairings of Bronson with Ines and Billy with Susie.
Both couples were doomed from the start.
John sucks too.
Bronson and Billy are two types of the same coin. Both are emotionally open, in touch with who they are and what they want but fundamentally, honest people. Although there is a difference between them when it comes to how emotionally affected they get on camera but nonetheless, they’re open with how they feel.
Billy got it rough.
Ines and Susie are also essentially the same type of person. They’re loud, outspoken and they both have an outdated perception of what it takes to be “manly” and “masculine”. On countless occasions they’ve belittled, demeaned and straight out insulted their “husbands”, alone and in front of others.
They’ve projected what they think a “man” should be and taken advantage of the well-meaning nature of their partners to not argue or put up a fight. However, the snowball effect of abuse and insults came to a head at a commitment ceremony where Bronson used the forbidden word to describe Ines’ behaviour.
This actually showed up before…the word.
Bronson was called out by “expert” Mel Schilling leading many to wonder where this vigilance was before. Ines had repeatedly verbally abused Bronson, jokingly threatened to cut the rope while he parasailed and mercilessly mocked him and yes, we wholeheartedly believe that what he said was horrible and consequences are required but damn, if that didn’t feel one sided.
As a society, we’ve tried to fight the perception that being in touch with your emotions and open doesn’t mean that you aren’t “masculine”. And we try to celebrate it whenever we can but Married At First Sight needs to open a balanced dialogue that respects opinion but also holds people accountable because mocking someone on TV because you they don’t meet your expectations of “masculinity” is damaging to all of us.
Married At First Sight Has A Big Problem Gaslighting Women
Married at First Sight has a serious issue that isn’t named Jessika or Ines.
What is gaslighting you may ask? Well, the simplest way to put it is the psychological manipulation of someone to the point where they doubt their own sanity and frankly, we see it week after week on MAFS.
But we’re going to be looking at the worst case with Heidi and Mike.
See Heidi and Mike seemed like an ‘okay’ couple at the ceremony but things quickly went downhill after that at their honeymoon. Heidi opened up to Mike about her less than happy past where Mike responded by asking her to “shorten her points out” and get to a conclusion.
Throughout the show, we see increasingly, troubling behaviour from Mike in the way that he seems to treat others like when he denied he said anything negative about Jess, told Heidi what she wanted to hear and then the show flipped it.
Blink 182 times a minute.
This comes to a head at the commitment ceremony, Heidi explained how she felt to the “experts” where she was met with questions and accusations from John about how this is “in her nature” when things get serious.
And frankly, that’s not on.
Not happy, Jan.
There is a claim that the “experts” don’t see what happens outside of dinner parties and ceremonies but I don’t buy that. For them to put the blame on her is a horrible thing. There are things that are happening inside and outside of her view that are influencing her opinion (which if she feels uncomfortable, there are plenty of reasons to back it up) and she gets told that?
It’s a treatment of a person that we really can’t get behind and they really need to look into how they conduct themselves and the show as a whole because it’s disgusting.
