Dr. Viviana live-tweeted during the latest episode of Married at First Sight and reacted to Alyssa Ellman’s poor behavior during the honeymoon. 

MAFS viewers pressed Dr. Viviana to explain how she and the other experts could have possibly thought Alyssa was ready for marriage and also question why Alyssa hasn’t been kicked off the show after so clearly being uncommitted to the process. 

Dr. Viviana offered up her thoughts on those questions and was met with mixed reviews. 

Dr. Viviana says experts are ‘aware of everything that is happening’ 

On the latest episode of Married at First Sight, Alyssa revealed that she would not feel comfortable moving into an apartment with Chris Collette after the honeymoon and that she felt entitled to living in the apartment on her own so that she could still enjoy the “experience” and hang with her “girls” from the show. 

Alyssa’s outlandish requests led many MAFS viewers to turn to Dr. Viviana and ask why Alyssa wasn’t immediately sent home on the honeymoon. 

Dr. Viviana tweeted her response writing, “In response to your many tweets saying that Alyssa should be ‘kicked off’ or ‘sent home.’ I’d like to see any of you legally force someone to get on a plane and/or separate you from your legal spouse against your wishes.” 

Dr. Viviana also came to the defense of the experts in her tweet that read, “Did y’all hear Pastor Cal? Yes, we are aware of everything that is happening and we are following their marriage closely.”

Dr. Viviana dishes on Alyssa Ellman’s intentions 

Speaking on Alyssa’s intentions, Dr. Viviana expressed a belief that Alyssa had signed up for the experiment with good intentions but did eventually admit that Alyssa has disrespected the MAFS process. 

Dr. Viviana tweeted, “I believe Alyssa went into this with all the good intentions and I THINK, like so many others, she thought ‘Well if it doesn’t work out with us, at least I can meet amazing women and we will join the ranks of all the other #mafsbrides who came before us and make the best of it.’”

Dr. Viviana’s tweet continued, “I actually think that is not the worst way to look at this process. BUT because at this point she is refusing to communicate with her husband, she is refusing to be respectful to him, and she is disrespecting the process that produced many loving families.”

    • Absolutely need to eliminate Alyssa from the show. She offers NOTHING the viewers tune in to see….which are couples trying to make connections and remain married, along with counseling from the experts.

  1. Dr Vivianna is dead wrong. Are you serious? She doesn’t wanna be there at all? Why let her build a relationship with the girls? This about building a relationship with her spouse. This is bull. You guys are allowing another Paige/Chris drama. I’m disappointed! I’ve watched the show since it’s inception, but I’m about to stop watching. None of the couples are looking for live, they just want to be on TV.

    • The process is about marriage and not fame. She is obviously trying to make a mockery of that and shaming Chris who is really trying. Did she violate her contracts? I would let Chris move forward with the other couples and if she doesn’t want to move with him then DIVORCE. Chris deserves to be happy too and not treated horribly like she is doing to him. She is so mean and fake! She has not tried ONCE to try and get along. She put more trust in her “PSYCHIC” and his groomsmen opinions then getting to know him. She made a mockery of his real estate carrer and even said SHE HATES HIM!!!

    • The other women are NOT going to hang with her because the SEE what kind of a person she is. Lindsey called it straight up at the Bridal party when Alyssa was foo by herself. Seems that that “marriage should simply be ANNULLED. She should be told to pay back all compensation that she has received so far including all room costs, food costs and other stipends. She should be told she is NOT WELCOME on the show anymore. It would be up to HER to find her way back home either that you BUCK UP and follow the rules of the show!

      Reply
      • Oh how I totally agree with EVERYTHING you’ve said. I believe she is still there because she don’t want to give back the money. Dr, Vivianna need to stop trying to play both sides of the fence. Alyssa is wrong and her intentions were never pure. She wanted an outer appearance man and not a man with a good heart with love to give.

        Reply
    • I some what agree but not fully. Some of them really do want love but, the actions of one or two of them makes it look like no one is serious.

    • Agree dr viv being defensive because we see how you “experts” has ruined the concept of this show if you are really interested in the couples staying together go back to letting the couples to just be with their partner, no group dinners, parties and honeymoons. They need this precious time to get to know their partner not making new friends.

    • The viewers are not watching to see the train wreck Alyssa is demonstrating. Why do you have to punish Chris for being paired with a narcissist who thinks she’s “a nice person”. What a pile of horse doo-doo. One more episode with her misbehavior and I’m out for good.

      Reply
  2. She should either follow the rules or show. Or pay for the fun of hanging with the other girls and the apartment. I bet she’ll leave then. Our you thinking of Chris’s feelings.

    Reply
  3. Send her packing . She’s only there for what she can get and that for sure isn’t a husband. I hate what she’s doing and it spoils the experience for all of them.

    Reply
    • I doubt the other wives could care less about having Alyssa there to hang with them. She is not adding interest in the show, only disgusting behavior. She should be cut out now and let Chris finally retain a bit of dignity away from her abusive language rants!!

      Reply
  4. I totally agree! Why hasn’t she been fired/dismissed from the show? She wants the benefits the show provided and nothing else! She’s a self centered selfish conceited little person! She doesn’t deserve one more second on the show!

    Reply
  5. Dr. Viviana is trying to spin the narrative. You tell her she’s got to go or she will be responsible for the cost of everything. She clearly has deep issues. You also stop giving her air time. Just splice and dice. Don’t let her get together with the other couples when they’re all together. You simply tell her that she is not adhering to the process so she cannot participate. I’m sure she has a contract but both sides have to perform their part. And as to the comment that she would want to be part of the “girlfriend crew”, that’s BS. That’s not what it’s about.

    Reply
    • She’s not just “disrespecting the process of the show” as Dr Viv has stated, she reneged on her contract. Yes, cut her air time and watch her squeal….the little “princess” only wants the perks, not the marriage.

  6. She already said in the beginning if he had ugly smile and teeth she was not going to be happy. How sad she has based it on that. She also thought he was chubby, She def has a problem and how she treats people!

    Reply
  7. At this point I really feel like people who decide to act like this and not take things seriously need to be fined and they should make it known before the process. If you’re the type of person who is so picky about looks then maybe this isn’t the show for you.

    Reply
  8. I do feel that Alyssa should be off the show. She has no interest in being married or being respectful to Chris. She is only it it to get what she wants. She is not following the process and should go.

    Reply
  9. Personally I believe the girl has some kind of undiagnosed mental illness. From the night when all the girls went out by themselves you could tell something was wrong with her.

    Reply
  10. From what I can tell not only this site but every single one that has thousands of comments I’m finding it hard to find anyone who defends Alyssa. Pretty much everyone watching is saying the same thing about Alyssa and is in defense of Chris. That is very telling. No one deserves to be mocked on national TV. The season with Chris from Atlanta was bad enough, but this is crazy to have happen again when you have Alyssa outright saying she hates him and tries to portray him as a horrible person. That man has done NOTHING wrong and the lies she spews should not be allowed to happen. If this situation is not fixed by the next showing, then the only way to cure this is to stop watching and let their ratings tank. For the “experts” shame on you. You picked someone you knew would cause drama. I would be hard pressed to believe that during the screening process she didn’t come off as the Narcissistic personality disorder, probably telling you 1000 times about her type. That should have been a clue!!

  11. Hard to watch TV. I will tune out until Alyssa is off the show. How about some respect for
    Her husband. This needs to end now. Shame on the experts

    Reply
  12. I am so surprised that the experts did not she the type of person she is. This is definitely about the ratings. Those of us that believe in the process you are killing it for us. The show is changing to Jerry Springer. I watched since the beginning and I am very disappointed. But a bet tge experts did not want her on the shoe. The money proline looking at ratings and wanted drama.

  13. Clearly, from the moment of the vows, Alyssa had no intentions of making a deeper connection with her husband. She has been allowed to make her own rules and take away from the show’s intent. She barely interacts with Chris and walks away from every situation, blaming him. She cares more about participating in the experiences, making friends and how she is perceived by viewers then about making a connection to her spouse. Is the show now “Friends at First Sight”? This show needs parameters. Yes, these people signed up for this to record and air their journey with whom the experts believe to be their marital match but let’s be mindful that once the cameras stop rolling, their true lives continue. This is very embarrassing for both Chris and Alyssa but she deserves whatever negativity she receives because of her actions. Chris on the other hand should not have to be ridiculed until the show ends. Her comments and actions are demeaning! She needs to confirm whether she is willing to try and be required to show something different or her air time should be cut and whatever fees she is getting should also be cut because she did not adhere to the requirements. The experts need to intervene and take control over the show and not allow others to dictate the purpose of the show! If this continues, the show is likely to lose viewers and there will be more and more participants who will sign up simply for the trips, friends, apartments, etc.

  14. First of all she didn’t marry the other women and make new friends. He has the patience of a saint to be treated the way he has been. I remember the first season and Jaimie wasn’t attracted to Doug, but she fell madly in love with him. It does work, she just forgot why she was there. Not fair to Chris.

  15. It is clear Alyssa is narcissistic and dangerously manipulative. She is actually triggering me from my marriage to someone very similar. If I have to co tinue to watch her this will be the only season since its debut I will not watch

  16. This show is a train wreck. You just got to keep watching to see what happens. But I really don’t believe the “Experts” are all that great. What is the success rate of lasting marriages beyond the show. You can do better so called EXPERTS. With your track record, in real live you would have already been fired from your job! Sometimes I think they match up people knowing they are wrong for each other just for “good TV”. Which really isn’t fair for the poor victim looking for true love!

    Reply
  17. No, I don’t agree. Alyssa is abusive. That should be grounds for her to be asked to leave. She won’t come out and say she wants a divorce because then she loses her chance to live in the apartment. All the show cares about is the ratings. Imagine if the tables were turned and Chris was treating her the way she treats him?

  18. After the wedding she said she didn’t like his teeths, she don’t like him, period. She just want to be on tv. Since the first moment she lay eye on him, we could tell that she didn’t like him.

  19. She is very rude & disrespectful!! She is only there for herself. She cares nothing about Chris or his feelings !! If she says “I’m a nice person” I am going puke !!

    Reply
  20. I wish the experts would have taken an active roll from the onset. Alyssa refused to speak to Chris civilly immediately after the wedding. The red flag was her refusing to share the room with him. So they’ve let it go for so long I’m not sure how it can be redeemed. They’ve got a ton of drama for viewers so that’s why it’s difficult to think that some of this wasn’t allowed to unfold on purpose.

    Reply
  21. She broke her contract!! You made the statement about breaking them apart. I call BS she doesn’t even want to be married to Chris!! Why are you putting him through this??

  22. When she starts talking, I just want to go through the TV! But please don’t blame the experts. If you have ever known a narcissist, you know they are MASTERS of telling people what they want to hear! I’m sure she looked great all throughout the interview process. That’s their specialty.

  23. I think the experts are choosing people who you know from the get go, it’s not going to work. I think they pick some people because the drama they are going to have and it’s good for television.

  24. She keeps saying she is trying. How is she doing that. If I was on the show I would have told her exactly to her face what I think about her. She is rude and only thinks about now being shown as a bad person. Well that is not working. I wish I could call her and tell her how bad she looks. First of all she had bought 10 wedding dresses just in case she did not like any of the ones she could get. Weird. She thinks she is a wonderful person. NOT!

    Reply
    • I had forgotten about the 10 dresses! Yep, that is ridiculous! Don’t you just want to tell Chris to be grateful that this did not work out?! Be glad you didn’t get on that crazy train!

  25. I think Alyssa is fake,and just wanted on tv…
    She didn’t even want to stay around Chris right after the wedding…seems like she has to keep reminding herself that she’s a good person..lol
    She blames Chris fir everything, but yet he’s not been able to speak up on his behalf or anything..
    Chris seems like a sweetheart of a guy…and he deserves much better then who they matched him with.
    And why does she want to be a part of the mafs experiment, but not want a part of Chris. She wants the apartment, she wants to be on TV. But she wants nothing to do with Chris.
    Kick her a** home,and take her off screen..
    She’s a witch with a B.

  26. There are times when compassion and understanding should set the tone and direction, but this immature and ungrateful spoiled child needs to have her nasty butt shown the door on this show. In no way shape or form is it EVER ok to blatantly and publicly show the type of bullying she is exhibiting to Chris at this very moment in the show. The writing is on the wall, she is NOT going to change, she is NOT going to look at herself and CHOOSE to accept that she is wrong… NEVER. I hope Chris shows her is back and walks away from her.

  27. It’s all about ratings, they knew she was a better fit for “
    Unmatchable”. Wish they go back to the original format, were they actually have a damn.

    Reply
  28. Alyssa came into the experience with “good intentions”? Her intentions were to find her Prince Charming. The odds of her finding the man of her dreams at the altar were nil, and anything else was unacceptable. The minute she saw Chris she was out. Why did she stay? Why did she say ‘I do’? She was going to be on TV, have a lavish wedding and reception, vacation in Puerto Rico and be set up in an apartment, all expenses paid. She demanded a separate room from the get go, ignored Chris and made absolutely no effort to respect her marriage. Chris, on the other hand was blindsided. While living a nightmare, he maintained his dignity, decency and respect for the experience.
    I can only imagine what was left on the cutting room floor when footage was edited. There apparently was no footage of Alyssa being the “good person” that she purported to be. As my father always said, there are only two kinds of good, no good and good for nothing.

    Reply
    • She needs mental health help. Narcissist! Chris definitely deserves BETTER . PLEASE GET HELP ALYSSA! A good person…doesn’t have to constantly say…im a good person. Actions are what we see. You just wanted all the perks without trying to get to know your husband.

  29. They can tell her to leave, she is not doing MAFS she is doing being single and enjoying all the benefits of the show and they are putting up with her instead of telling her Bye Girl.

  30. This is to all the experts. If you all don’t send Alyssa home and allowing her to insult shame and hurt Chris this show will be flushed down the toliet. This type of behavior is unacceptable!!! Thank God Chris is strong enough and confident enough to just walk away and know he is not what she is saying he is. he deserves so much better. Please don’t allow this abusive behavior to go on anymore. It is almost like bullying someone. It has to stop NOW!!!

    Reply
  31. Paige, and possibly others that don’t readily come to mind, are in therapy because of their abusive treatment on national tv. I’d suggest MAFS take that into consideration before things really get out of hand. These narcissistic personalities leave scars that remain for a lifetime. Chris is being publicly humiliated for ratings? Where’s the empathy?

    Reply
  32. If she had been matched with her Ideal dream guy (good looking in her eyes) she may have been different. But, she agreed to participate, get married at first sight, then reneged on the Contract, by refusing to sleep in a room with a stranger. Did she not know that it would be required of her to live with a stranger she was going to marry?

    Rather than to tell Chris to give her more time, they needed to tell her, that she is married to him, she needs to act like it. The show is not Make Friends with Other MAFS Brides.

    Reply
  33. It was only in recent years that the show has put the couples together for this experience and to support each other. I thought it was a good idea, until Allysa. Maybe going back to the old way of no contact between the couples for the first part of the season would be a better idea. Then the couples can focus on each other. Allysa needs to go. And I believe that Chris would leave on his own, and not want to stay for an “experience” with his boys!!!

    Reply
  34. It’s like every season now, these “experts” look for at least one damaged, immature Narcissist to add to the mix for drama and ratings, then justify it like it’s some decent selection for the show. They just can’t be THAT BAD at psych evaluation and screening–people like this aren’t that hard to spot. I think they screen this type of person IN vs screeming them OUT for appropriateness for this kind of “experience”. I miss how it as at the beginning when it really seemed like a social experiment with matches and people that made sense vs the Jerry Springer show it’s turned in to.

  35. I do not agree with her accessment of the situation, Alyssa’s behavior is unexcusable. What’s going to be done about it, that’s the question. It’s not fair to Chris at all.

  36. MAFS: I think there should be something in the terms and stating you can’t just sign up for a 1 wk vaca & 2 mo apt stay (cause if that’s what ur doing more homeless people would sign up).

    • Not only had Alyssa been disrespectful to the MAFS process, but what about Chris? He is the real victim here. Poor guy has been so nice to her and has given it his all. She is just a brat who thinks she is God’s gift to mankind. She says she is such a good person, but that remains to be seen. My opinion is that she put in an Academy Award winning process that really snowed the experts into believing she would be great for the show. She is just a joke!!! Kick her off. And give Chris another shot.

  37. God has a better plan for Chris and Allyssa is not a part of the plan.

    I do feel like the show is allowing her to disrespect Chris. Chris has been patient and polite the entire time. He went on the show with great intentions and a hugh heart.

    Reply
    • Allyssa is a JOKE, while always saying she is a good person. Good people don’t treat a spouse the way she is treating Chris. It is so mean, sneaky like, cold and calculated. I don’t completely agree with Dr. Viviana, because she is not treating Chris like he’s her husband, she don’t want to be with him and she even said one time to the producer she hated him, so why can’t you make her leave now and end this nightmare for Chris. Chris is really suffering and he’s at a disadvantage, help him out and you see he’s broken in spirit and heart. 😔 💔 I’m so sick of watching her rudeness, heartless disrespectful ways now and she’s not a good person, no matter how much she tries to convince this narcissistic personality of hers that she is. I just don’t understand how all of the experts got it wrong with her and thought she would make a good spouse for anyone. I see why she’s alone now and will never probably have a healthy relationship with anyone. Please take her off the show and give Chris another chance with someone who is good and willing to try and put in the work for a good healthy relationship and marriage. Alyssa has destroyed his self esteem and he’s so confused about what has he done that’s so wrong that she feels this way about him. Believe me the viewers are a little confused too, because we know she’snot saying what she’s really feeling to protect her image.

      • Alyssa needs to be taken off the show and find Chris another wife. She didn’t sign up to be with her girls. These girls were strangers before she met them. She is looking for fame not a husband. She is nasty and irritating. She is not a good person as she keeps telling herself. She is the worst and should never get an opportunity to stay in the apartment with the other couples. It seems as if she is in charge and is dictating the process.Dr. V, Don’t find excuses for her and her rude behavior. It’s not Alyssa’s show.

  40. No…I do not agree with Dr. Vivian. What Allysa is doing to Chris is a form of abuse. If Chris would have treated Allysa that way he would have surely been thrown off of the show! If she is disrespecting the process then why does get to continue to do so? Nobody wants to continue to see her act like a spoiled 10 year old! It does shed a good light on MAFS.

  41. The girl obviously has issues of her own to work on. She needs to be honest with herself and just leave. This guy is not cute enough for her. She’s all about physical attributes and money. The girls do not want to be with her. They are just being respectful and kind. She seems so angry and unhappy all the time. She’s rude, mean and disrespectful!!! Time for you to go home so you could think about all the people you’ve hurt. You took a spot from a person who probably wanted this more than you. You checked out the minute you saw his face!!! Seriously – JUST GO HOME

  42. She should be ashamed of herself. It is disgusting the way she treats him and what she says. She’s getting a free vacation out of this. He should leave . I can’t stand her whiny, disrespectful, entitled behavior. You should persuade her to leave. And he should get an annulment asap. She needs to be called out on her behavior. I hate watching the show because of her.

  44. I honestly feel sorry for Chris. He is holding on to a Dream. Alyssa could care less about him. She even said she hates him. She just wants to socialize. I can’t believe MAFS is allowing her disrespect to the process. She is turning me off to watch the show.

    • I agree that aylissa should no longer be on the show as she has not given her husband any indication that she would even try to have a relaionship with him the show is not about her making friends with the other women its about having a relationship with her husband so she should no longer participate in the show

  45. I am so sick of Alysa and I feel so bad fir Chris. If she is allowed to stay on the show, I’m going to watch something else. I love watching the couples grow and stay together but this is the worst o have seen yet, I don’t even like her. Her mother was right she looks bad on TV.

  46. I am horrified at the way this new bride is treating the husband that she signed up to go through this process with. She is so disrespectful and always sees herself as being the victim, even though that’s not the case. She is a most unkind and narcissistic person. How can you be so disrespectful and mean to someone that you truly have not even tried to civilly engage with. She walks away from all discussions complaining. I actually cannot even stand looking at her on the screen. Why she has not been kicked off the show at this point is beyond me. This is so unfair to Chris who has absolutely no idea what he’s even done. Alyssa should go home and drown in her misery.

  47. She is making herself look bad. He isn’t doing anything but trying to be married like he signed up for. She is also a liar and when she looks at herself after the process, she’s going to be one unhappy and embarrassed lady. He needs to let it go. She said she hates him! Why? What has he done? No wonder she had to get someone else to find her a mate. She better get herself together because no one will want to date her after they see this.

  48. Please get Alysa off of this season of Married At First Sight. She seems to have some mental issues. She is disrespecting the entire show process. This is not about hanging with other people, it is about marriage. She needs to leave immediately.. I feel so sad for Chris, he seems to be such a nice caring man. He has tried everything he can to make Alysa feel at ease. I was very angry that she was not immediately removed from the show, when she said, “I hate him”, loud enough for Chris to hear. Please do something about her. There is no way she should be allowed to live in the apartment without Chris.

    • I think by her mistreating Chris she thinks that makes her look good it doesn’t. In her mind she thinks that she can build her dog rescue by being on TV. The men she dated in the past say that she needed help and they left. I bet if someone could talk to her ex he would tell you that there is something wrong with her. I know her family are embarrassed about the way she is behaving on Public TV. Oh they know what kind of person she is at home. When this is all over she will see that no man will want her. Because most men stay away from Drama. Looks and gym shape bodies got her where she is now.

  50. The joke is that she thinks she is better looking than Chris but she is not. She is on the show because she can’t find a man. And now we all see why.

    Reply
    • Very much well said. To add to this, she is showing signs of an undiagnosed Narcissistic Personality Disorder, always claiming she is a good person, when her actions says differently. She has not given Chris a chance at all, left him a few hours after they got married and has been separated from him every since. So, how is Dr. Viviana saying you can’t legally separate someone from their spouse, if they don’t want to do so?. When all Alyssa is saying is she doesn’t want to be with him, around him, sit next to him or even share the apartment with him. This is all the evidence they need to change the narrative of this situation and kick her off the show, I’m quite sure Chris will be fine with it, because he’s tired of the stress and drama of it. Going back, they let Chris that was with Paige on another season, stay on the show to the end and he just humiliated her and dogged her out the entire time. Enough already, experts, we’re going to have to start making better , because last season was a mess too, didn’t nobody stay together. I’m just waiting to see what’s going to happen when they get back from the honeymoon on next week and, if the experts are going to deal with her bad disgusting behaviors and drama.

  51. There should be something in contract for situations like this where since night one she has not shared a room with her husband. Ok maybe give her night 1 but after that no , she shouuld not be allowed to get a free vacation or even be allowed to move in to apartment. She wants to split the time she should not be allowed to miss out on the experience ummmmmm if u are not even trying to talk or get to know your husband at all then no you dont get that right.
    She keeps saying shes trying no shes not. She leaves conversations when it gets to something she feels will make her look bad let me say she keeps trying to prove hes such a bad person etc… when honestly he has not raised his voice walked away or anything he is trying his hardest she is a very vain person i truly feel bad for chris he is getting the short end of the stick and she stole a spot for someone who truly would try and be in for right reason see what the other person has that makes them a match its not all about looks
    Such a shame. The experts NEED to get involved ASAP!!!! Call her out on her s**t.

  52. I think she is disrespectful and like other well known figures in the past five years who disrespects ‘the laws’ should be held accounted. If she gets away with this, others will follow. Stop her now. Write up these by laws in future contract for MAFS.

    • Correct it is an Experiment not just an experience. 8weeks or not with her degrading actions she should not be allowed to experience the experiment. On decision day..Divorce. Done. The show shouldn’t have to pay for her experience of having fun. The other girls are going thru the experiment too and they don’t need someone to hang out with. Honeymoon is over. They have their own friends to confide in they don’t need her. She will not have any input on how to help the others. So why?

    • I agree with Dr V.
      But why should the show pay for her experience when she won’t have any input for the others when she doesn’t have any relationship experiences that may help the others. Why should she go to dinners or parties or weekends away with other couples when she is by herself. In what world does she think she can help…

  53. Alyssa! This lady has issues and she diffently need to be off the show, Chris is such a nice guy and has really gotten the short end of the stick, he has been the nicest guy through all of this craziness, please ! please exit her off the show, and direct her to the nearest person that can give her a mental evaluation

  54. Talk about a bag of bad nuts, that’s exactly how I would describe Alyssa. She has been a total disappointment from the alter. I mean she probably would treat a total stranger at the bar better than she has treated Chris. At this point she’s just there for the great trip and cocktails. She has not given the marriage a try based off her conversation with his friends and he has been extremely patient with her antics because of his desire to be a husband and his willingness to at least try. Alyssa is being juvenile at this point and the experts need to step in and advice her to leave respectfully. It’s so disheartening watching this show when the people behave as bad as Alyssa has.

  55. Take the Dr. from Vivian name. Why should someone be in a process that allows someone to say. I Hate him. Hate is a strong ugly word.

  56. That is a COMPLETE cop out!!! Total CoverYourOwnAss statement…she has played the so called experts (the entire show) and you all look like fools. She did not come into this for marriage cuz the look on her face when she walked down the isle said everything you need to know from that point on. She is a liar and manipulator…you all fell for it and now you’re making excuses for it. Please do better and stop looking for ratings over feelings

    • Why don’t she stop lying on him on hi. To make herself look good she doesn’t deserve to have that apartment and if he is not what she wants let him go and find someone that will be his all.

  57. This is so hurtful to see the abuse. There are people that actually gone through this and could not find help. She should be taken off or MAFS should be canceled. These are real people’s lives.

    • I have never seen such a childish spoiled rotten ^adult^ she should be ashamed of herself. Alyssa is a horrible person and should be kicked off the show immediately and hopefully Chris will divorce and move on sooner than later.

  58. The so-called “experts”, if they truly are aware of everything going on and are not just trying to cover themselves, should intervene. Explain to Alyssa why she was chosen and why they thought Chris would be a good match for her. Engage in some counseling. Help her get past her initial physical impression (repulsion?) and make clear she is not being nice to him, respectful of him as a person with feelings and strengths. And if she can’t, make clear she should leave. I think the show – and audience – would benefit from more examples of how true experts help couples deal with conflict and overcome problems.

  59. She’s a disgrace to the show. No respect for the process. Rude and dismissive. It is actually hard to watch. Chris needs an apology from the “experts.”

    Reply
  60. Why don’t the so-called experts intervene, and counsel, and explain, and try to help Chris and the couple succeed instead of trying to cover themselves? They are aware of everything going on and the best they could come up with is: go play tennis?

    Reply
  61. So disappointed they allow a participant to continue to stay ON THEIR OWN TERMS when the experts admit she is disrespecting the program requirements. Unfair to the others especially Chris. It sure feels like it’s all about the potential for conflict as much as helping people find a life mate. I stopped watching…

    Reply
  62. She decided the moment she walked down the aisle and saw him standing there that he wasn’t the guy. She only had negative things to say about him all night at the reception. The experts should have realized she was high maintenance. I could tell from day one it wasn’t going to work out. She just wants to be there for the girls, not her marriage! She needs to go!! No amount of counseling is going to help, don’t waste the time and the audiences time! I am sick of her whining and disrespecting Chris.She says just enough so it will look like she is going to do something so she can stay and be around for the girls.

  63. I dont think they are doing a great job in their mstch making skill. I dont agree with Dr Viviane. I would think as a pastor. Pastor Cal would pray about putting couples together first. Its obvious if he did ,he was not listening to the answer from GOD.

  64. Alyssa is like a seven year old that don’t get her away and he don’t like Chris. I think they should of sent her home. She seen him before they said I do and she’s could of say no I don’t. Instead of drag Chris threw hell. Chris is a nice guy that I can see

    Reply
  65. Sue MAFS Chris! They are allowing you to be falsely slanders! Slam dunk case! While you’re at it, sue Alyssa too. She’s called you disgusting and abusive with no basis, you will win brother!

    Alyssa is nothing to look at even with all the fake lashes, make-up, etc… she should be thrilled to have someone like Chris be willing to try.
    Her family and friends were worried about how she’d look? Hmmm… so she’s generally like this, rude, hateful, cruel and has delusions about thinking she’s hot. You’re not Alyssa! Sorry! I wouldn’t date you for 1k! Girl needs to be booted off the show.

    • Omg I cringe watching her .. Who does she think she is…I feel so bad for Chris…I knew right from the beginning she was full of herself… weirdest cast member in history..I can’t stand watching..Chris please rum..Chris your not missing anyrhing

  66. Dr. Viviane is clueless herself. Noone on the sidelines can ever view their relationship a healthy on. Alyssa clearly has issues that run very deep. And instead of the experts take accountability for this mishap, and prevent her spouse from being emotionally, and mentally abused, the best response is we are watching it closely. This show is rapidly losing its credibility. They care more about the drama than a person’s well being.

  67. Me and my friends stop watching the show
    We cant understand how your show will allow someone to humiliate a person in that manner. We used to love the show now your pathetic.

  68. I have been watching the show regularly… my husband has not… my husband’s daughter was officially diagnosed with borderline personality disorder… she is beautiful and can be charming, but she is also manipulative, causes situations and then blames others, acts the victim and also thinks she is a very good person. My husband immediately said, wow, she is just like my daughter. So there is a possibility that Alyssa has undiagnosed borderline personality disorder, especially since her friends and family have mentioned her long-time emotional issues. Also someone with BPD can be incredibly charming and act kind, and so the experts might have been fooled. This type of person is ultimately dangerous (I have seen what my step-daughter did to a past boyfriend who was a great guy, and she always tried to make him look like the bad guy even though it was all her)… he was wounded for a long time because of it… Chris should get out and the experts should be more aware that this is possibility a personality disorder that will not get any better without actual therapy.

  69. At least one MAFS Australia they have commitment days I think once a week and the experts call out bad behavior immediately. Alyssa just keeps getting coddled

  70. I disagree with Dr Vivianna. I do not feel or believe Alyssa went into this for the right reasons and i feel she is very immature and selfish to boot I don’t care if you would have set her up with Ken from Barbie ie; the perfect man LOL. She’s belittling Chris beyond belief on TV and flaunting her hate and doing her best to justify she’s right ! She’s got no business in this show. Period. Also she’s getting more airtime than the TRUE couples which as a viewer who loves the show, it’s infuriating. We’ve seen enough of her and in the future while filming and you endure another “spouse” as Alyssa I hope the experts and producers do the right thing and follow the other couples and let the troubled participants hash it out mostly off screen.

  71. Dr. Viviana (like the rest of the “Experts” and the production crew), are “full of it”. They know that Alyssa is violating the show’s so-called agreements, if there are any. They’ve terminated marriages and ended couples grievances and grief before. But they are all on a “RATINGS SUGAR HIGH” and that is a hard habit to kick.h

    Reply
  72. I think there is too much time spent on worrying about Alyssa and not enough about Chris. The experts can talk to her and tell her that if she continues this abusive behavior – she will have to leave – I don’t care about her reasons-she cannot treat people that way! If she’s sick, get help – if she is just a b***h-get out-stop making it easy for her bad behavior-she needs to be held accountable and Chris needs to be set up with someone else!

    • Alyssa is a b**ch and doesn’t deserve anyone like Chris. He seems like a wonderful guy and shouldn’t have to put up with a shallow bi**h like her.

  73. I feel this is s. Unfair to Chris, and the so called experts should have been able to see that Alyssa had so serious emotional problems from the onset. I blame this solely on the so called experts, they all need to be removed. It seems they only care about the financial gain. This is the last season I will be watching, it gets shi***er each season.

  74. I feel the experts should have stepped in a couple episodes ago. Alyssa is another o poor potty me. I can’t stand her. She should be kicked off the show. Anyone who says I’m a good person every 30 seconds is not a good person

  75. They need to throw her off the show! And for that dumb legal spouse remark from a professional….seriously? That marriage should just be annulled! And hubby should man up and request one asap! Its annoying to watch this..as if they are allowing it for dramatic effect

    Reply
  76. What legalities? She signed up to be married and she doesn’t want to be married. So she cannot participate on the show. Easy as that. And if they are worried about being sued, I would worry about they husband she is defaming on camera. She just wants to be on the show. Kick her off or we are off. It’s too painful to watch her husband go through this!

    Reply
  77. I believe Alyssa, was in it to meet Mr. Right ( lol). She said at the beginning if he has bad teeth that’s an out. She is just for looks not the inner person. She sticking it out to get the free stuff.
    Honeymoon ( trip). Apartment. I agree with others she states she is a good person,. And that she don’t like the way Chris talks to her. S*** I pick up and leave her ass.

  78. Alyssa have her requests, the chosen spouse was not what she wanted, so Why let her stay just to enjoy the “experience and there girls”? Her staying is not fair for the guy. Show Alyssa the doors, PLEASE!

  79. Chris is entitled to an annulment. The marriage was not consummated and Alyssa participated under false pretenses. Flush her immediately. Do not pay for additional rooms and apartments to satisfy this crazy b***h.

  80. Chris is going to be such a great husband to someone in the future that he deserves. Alyssa will never get married because her view only reflects her own face to her. What a shame that she cannot have some self-introspection and understand who she really is.

    • I think they should ask her to leave once they return from the honeymoon. This trauma can damage Chris and there is no need to do that to him.

      Reply
      • Someone commented that Chris should sue and rightfully I think he should because she is clearly trying to defame his character even though the taping CLEARLY does not show proof of what she is telling the crew. What is going to happen is she will turn around and try to sue mafs for defaming her and breach of contract because she has said on MANY occasions they got it wrong. I think it’s time for me to server ties because I thought Chris and Paige was to much but now watching this.. enough is enough.

        Reply
  81. All I can say is that what is happening to Chris is wrong…. If you continue to allow this type of behavior on the show then YOU are all to blame for how Chris is being treated not Alyssa. You have the power to end this and if don’t then please help me understand why!! The only reason I still tune in is in hopes that as soon as the honeymoon is over you “The Experts” will end his torture and send her home. If this doesn’t happen then I can’t watch anymore I can’t continue to support this show. Because it will have nothing to do with LOVE anymore and watching others get hurt and spit on is just cruel

  82. I can’t believe the doctor Viviana can only come up with that she wants to be with her husband when in fact that is the furthest from the truth she’s not concerned about being separated from her husband she’s concerned about being separated from the other couples. If nothing is done to these people that join this process and humiliate and cause emotional distress on the spouse chosen for them, they need to be removed. She had an obligation to the show which she has not fulfilled. If this is not dealt with eventually ratings will start to drop and the show will be a has-been. I sincerely hope that the producers take with the viewers are saying before they start to lose support.

  83. I don’t believe that Alyssa should have been allowed to the PR Honeymoon as she was already checked out!!! She didn’t like his looks and refused to look into his heart. She’s a selfish person and is definitely not ready for Marriage, she called him a car salesman, even if he would’ve been a car salesman, at least he would have had a job but he’s in Real Estate and that’s great either way!! She’s a PRETENTIOUS, FAKE, SELFISH PERSON and she is not deserving of him!! Take her off already, don’t even film her!!!

  84. After watching the last episode of MFS I can say I’m done with this show. I am confused as to how the experts evaluate the the people that end up on the show. Instead of interviewing their family members maybe they should interview past relationships, instead of looking at their underwear maybe you should interview coworkers. I know people put there best foot forward when interviewing but shouldn’t the experts have a sense discernment and common sense. Putting people in abusive relationships is down right cruel, it’s not entertaining, amusing or interesting and I’ll not be participating at 8:pm Wednesday night any longer.

  85. I was very disappointed in having to watch Alyssa disrespect, hurt, and belittle Chris. How in the world was this spoiled brat chosen for this show. It was torture to watch ANY and EVERY scene in which she was involved. So thrilled with Chris deciding to divorce her! HE DESERVES A DO-OVER! Repair this kind gentleman! Please!

  86. I hope they get this girl the help she needs. Give Chris a do over after he has some therapy to get over this …..out of touch with reality person.

  87. Forget the process!! How could these experts not know alyssa is “:NOT A NICE PERSON” from day one of interviews. How could they ever think Chris from last season was a decent man??
