The behavior of Alyssa Ellman toward her new husband Chris Collete on this season of Married at First Sight has gotten a lot of reactions from viewers, experts, and previous participants.

On the latest episode of the Lifetime series, the 30-year-old declared she wanted to move into their shared apartment, just not with her husband.

Not wanting to miss out on the “experience” of being around brides whom she sees as her friends, Alyssa offered up a schedule to share the living space without actually cohabitating as the experiment calls for.

Clearly not there for the right reasons, Season 8 husband A.J. Vollmoeller is the latest to give his two cents, and while he admits “he was a victim of a bad edit himself”, this isn’t the case for the Season 14 bride.

Back when Married at First Sight took Philadelphia in 2019, A.J. and his match Stephanie Sersen luckily had chemistry from day one, however, he later started to rub viewers the wrong way by his hotheaded nature.

Calling himself a previous target of a negative edit, the MAFS alum took to Instagram to share, “I initially felt bad for Alyssa.”

After watching the show further, he added, “Then I realized editing has nothing to do with it because I know how to read between the lines of editing now.”

“She came into this for the WRONG reasons and is NOT “a f*****g really good person,” the How to NOT Get Hired author wrote.

Proposing a poll to his followers, he asked, “Do you think she just wanted to be cool by being on Reality TV and meet some new friends or did she have the best intentions in mind?”

It’s clear A.J.’s followers share his views with most guessing it isn’t a case of the bad edit.

What did Alyssa Ellman do on Married at First Sight?

It’s been less than a week of marriage but Alyssa has quickly become the most hated cast member on the show due to her treatment of Chris.

Making it clear she isn’t attracted to her appointed match, her sour attitude and unwillingness to participate in the experiment have fans siding with her husband.

While Chris has approached Alyssa about her intentions in the marriage, she refuses to give a solid answer despite obviously not wanting to be in the relationship.

Do you think Chris and Alyssa will move in together on Married at First Sight? Let us know in the comments.

Married at First Sight airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Lifetime.

  1. Who is Alyssa trying to convince that she is a really really a good person? MAFS viewers or herself?
    If you feel like you need say it repeatedly then you’re probably not a good person!

    • I agree that Alyssa is a wacko and pathetic. But she is great for ratings. Makes me want to watch every Wednesday on Lifetime. I’m sure the Producers agree or else they would of had this marriage ANNULLED from the get go. EVERYONE LOVES DRAMA; WHEN ITS NOT THEM.

  2. It was obvious from the walk to the altar she felt the experts had made a mistake and she was not happy. Immaturity stepped in and she was unwilling to even be open to any possibilities much less communicate. The experts should have intervened on honeymoon as this young woman has had a mental breakdown-so very sad.

    • She’s not having a mental breakdown??? She’s mean and a whiner. Chris deserves better and they should end her experience now. She’s in it for the vacations and perks. Give her the boot. How’s that experience???

      • Totally agree… she is a user and a loser! MAFS needs to jerk her off that show immediately! She is not in it for the right reason and the experience she is giving all of the others is horrible. Need to say BYE BYE!

  3. 100% never moving in together. SHe wants to live with her ‘friends’ (who don’t even like her!) and is not committed to the marriage that the show is all about. After the season with Chris and Paige the experts had better step in and cut this off at the knees. And yes Chris DOES need a do-over.

  4. Hey AJ..glad to see you spoke up. I know it’s not something Stephanie really does..but if you could get your other Castmates to speak up. I’ve stopped watching because this is just Horrible. It totally spits in the face of all those that came before. Even the Horrific Ones!! It’s like the contestants in this experiment are no longer here to find love. ALYSSA is here to see what she can get away with!! Free trips..apartment, cars..even if it’s only for 8 weeks!!

  5. She is a spoiled brat who usually gets her way. She is selfish, saying one minute she will give Chris an answer, then a minute later she doesn’t have time to answer. MAFS should remove her from the cast, and let Chris get in with his Life.

  6. Alyssa is an ignorant, self centered, self absorbed, psychotic individual and i’m not sure how the interviewers missed that (unless they were hoping for exactly what she gave…DRAMA)

    Reply
  7. MAFS needs to have Alyssa reimburse them for the wasted time and free vacation she thought she deserved!! She wasn’t in this for the marriage…only the vacay and perks

    Reply
  8. I believe she came into it for the right reasons initially but as soon as she saw Chris her mind was made up that he wasn’t for her. Why she’s still there and why he hasn’t sent her packing is beyond me

    Reply
    • I agree. If the groom had been in her mind 1000% good looking her whole attitude would be completely different. She is so hung up on looks

  9. Alyssa needs to go home she got her 5 mins of fame. And its sad that the experts haven’t put an end to her foolishness . she likes to lie on n put the blame on others for her behavior… And another thing she is no beauty queen and i beat her nasty attitude the reason she is single…

  10. If Chris even contemplates allowing her to move into the apt. with or without him or continues any sort of relationship with this witch, I will lose all respect for him. He’s better than that and deserves someone with compassion – not for themselves but for others. It took him a while to acknowledge the real her, but I was glad he finally caught on to her scheming intentions. I’m sure when Alyssa watches the past segments, she again will cry how she was made to look bad. If they had to edit everything that she feels would make her look bad, they would have to edit her out of the season entirely. The only time she was slightly pleasant was when she was with the other brides. No wonder her mother, who seems to be down to earth, is upset with her. So self-centered; it’s me, me, me all the way and all the time. She can’t be that oblivious to see that she isn’t such a “nice person”. And she has friends? Are they as bad as her?

  11. She is a horrible person she just does not deserve Chris at all!! And she is not pretty at all and the way she is acting makes her even uglier!! She is so faa add me why hasn’t she been sent home!!

  12. Chris don’t waste your time trying to make it work. You deserve better. She is clearly on the show just for a vacation and meet new friends. She must not have friends at home and I can see why. She is always playing the victim. You haven’t been mean at all to her. She is acting worse than a two yr old. She is the only one who is portraying herself as a bad person. Tlc needs to take her off the show. Can’t stand that cry baby.

  13. Alyssa is a gaslighting queen. So, I’d say she’s not “a good f****** person” by any extent of the imagination. The “experts” need to have their credentials shredded for subjecting Chris to this narcissistic nightmare.

    Reply
  14. Chris deserves so much better. Coming down the aisle, her face said it all, even before her discusting behavior began. She is a mean girl.

    Reply
  15. AJ I’m so glad that you see what we all see. She is a horrible person for taking advantage of everything and especially how she is treating Chris. She should not have been allowed to continue this long! How can the experts let someone treat another person this badly?

    Reply
  16. She’s the most disgusting person ever on this show. Nobody deserves to mf treated like that for any reason. They really need to do better. Just appalling.

    Reply
  17. Apparently she has scammed everyone on the show, especially the experts. She needs intense therapy and needs to issue a BIG APOLOGY to the guy she has put thru sheer hell…he deserves a stable woman who will work with him instead of against him. Her narcissist behavior is appalling and her friends and family enable her like a spoiled child, giving in to allowing her to get her own way. Shes selfish and seriously needs mental intervention. Throw her ass off the show,annull the marriage and give Chris a Re do.

  18. Said it before, will say it again. I do not trust Alyssa alone with Chris without cameras rolling for one minute. Think back to Day 1, when they rode in the elevator for 2 minutes and when they came out she was already accusing him of something ridiculous. Nope. She needs to go. She is not deserving of him. He needs to find someone who is as devoted to a relationship as Chris. She wants to be on tv? Send her to Big Bro, Sorority At 1st Sight or some other ridiculous show. I wish I could get back all the time I spent watching this trainwreck.

  19. Chris is a sweetheart that’s getting the bad end of the deal she is a witch with a capital B. And I love love to watch Mark the sharks wife snicker because so do I. What a joke she is

    Reply
  20. She IS a witchy poo, but replace the w with a Big B. I mute the TV whenever she’s on. Get Chris a new partner and trash this narcissistic ass.

    Reply
  21. I totally agree with all of the above…what really blows me away is…she thinks the other wives are her friends! Did I miss something???

    Reply
  22. If Chris stands his ground and refuses the idea that she stay there alone for 2 weeks, she will raise ruckus but she will either stay or go but not easy. Somehow she should not be allowed to call the shots. The experts will have to step in. SHE IS SICK and needs therapy.

  23. She was trying to roll with the “experience” for as long as Chris was willing to put up with her being tight lipped about why she doesn’t think they are compatible. Her complaining about how disrespectful he was, left me scratching my head. How was he disrespectful, cuz he spoke the truth to her mother about how the situation was going – He said ” not well” and she had a hissy fit. She is a princess – she must be used having everyone pussy foot around to upset the queen. Her mom even seems afraid of telling Alyssa her honest opinion of her behavior, and when she did do this, in a very sugar-coated way, she had a crying whiny meltdown. She wants a man that will put her on a pedestal and let her call all the shots, this at the same being a macho and tattooed badass, she hoping for a unicorn here. Doesn’t exist, she’ll be one of those women who’s married 5-6 times. She must be a republican, cuz they’re likely to get upset over the smallest things, and twist things around to put the blame on someone else.
