Married at First Sight Season 14 has their frontrunner for the most troubled couple of the season. 

While viewers see red flags in several members of the MAFS Season 14 cast, it’s the marriage between Chris Collette and Alyssa Ellman that appears the most doomed. 

As Alyssa shared during the latest episode, she and Chris’ relationship has been rocky from the second they met, largely due to Alyssa’s firm belief that they aren’t compatible and her lack of attraction to Chris. 

Despite Alyssa clearly being unattracted to Chris, she has continually tried to suggest that her issues go beyond looks and instead are rooted in her feeling disrespected by Chris and turned off by his friends’ describing him as condescending. 

With Alyssa continually aiming to make Chris feel like he’s done something wrong, Chris has expressed feeling like she’s gaslighting him, which is a term describing psychologically manipulating someone into questioning themselves and their sanity. 

MAFS viewers agreed with Chris’ assessment of Alyssa’s gaslighting and praised him for being able to identify that he’s being manipulated and mistreated. 

MAFS viewers proud of Chris Collette for calling Alyssa Ellman out 

As the season goes on, MAFS viewers are vocalizing their dislike of Alyssa Ellman more and more while lifting up Chris and the way he is handling this challenging situation. 

One Married at First Sight viewer tweeted, “The fact that Chris can identify when he is being gaslighted is impressive! We love that for him!” 

Another MAFS fan commented, “Chris calling Alyssa’s nasty a** out on her bs! Exactly. Get her a**!” 

A MAFS viewer praised Chris’ proper use of the gaslighting term writing, “For once someone uses the term gaslighting correctly. Yes Chris, she is gaslighting you.”

A MAFS fan shared, “Chris recognizing he’s being gaslit and knowing his worth >>>.”

Another Married at First Sight viewer, wrote “Chris just telling the dang on truth and Alyssa can’t handle it now. Okay girl.” 

MAFS viewers aren’t buying Alyssa’s excuses for checking out of the marriage 

MAFS viewers didn’t hold back in calling Alyssa out for her unreadiness to be married, with many also suggesting that Alyssa is not being upfront about her true issues. 

One MAFS fan shared, “Chris hit it right on the nose…ALYSSA DIDN’T GET WHAT SHE WANTED SO NOW SHE’S BEING A BRAT!!” 

Another MAFS fan tweeted, “Alyssa doesn’t want Chris to talk about the situation because she knows it makes her look bad. She’s trying to spin the narrative but WE’RE NOT HAVING IT, GIRL!”

Overall one comment summed up the sentiment many MAFS viewers share when they tweeted, “Justice for Chris. He deserves better.”

As the season goes on, do you think Chris and Alyssa will ever be able to find some common ground and salvage their marriage?

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

    • I agree. The experts owe him an apology. They need to take classes from the EHarmony people. Even I knew this was a mismatch from the beginning.

      • Don’t you kind of wonder, if the show did this on purpose for the drama? Horrible if true. OR are the experts rushing on some of these matches??

  1. She is the biggest b***h. They are not for each together. They should cut their losses now and move on. I really don’t see how they were even matched in the first place.

  2. She isn’t the best looking gal, so to be judging him on his looks….really? He seems like a good guy. Whether he has a problem with being condescending or not, his friends are so wrong for giving her ammunition to use against him. That was not a friend move. She seems to be on the show to get on TV and get to travel. The fact that she didn’t get everything she asked for has ruined her plans and she is behaving like a petulant child. This will backfire on her, big time.

  3. She’s ugly anyway! How’s she going to act like a total brat and hurt him like that without even trying to get to know him. YOU DID NOT TRY ALYSSA. You suck.

  4. Chris needs to step off from this trifling POS. She is so petty because his teeth aren’t straight as hers and she can’t get past that. I don’t find her attractive at all and her personality sucks. Chris is way too good and deserves better then her. Its no wonder she is having trouble finding love. Who would want too??

  5. When Alyssa brought 10 other wedding dresses to her dress fitting was a clue that she definitely does not know what she wants other to be a nice person trying to get her 15 minutes of fame! Chris deserves so much better! Kick that trash to the curb.

    • Nothing “nice” about it! Hopefully, they can both move on. The whole thing is cringe worthy. Her phony defense of her “I’m a good person” “I better come off on TV looking like a good person!!” (or else, what?) Yes, petulant child, as someone said above.

  6. How can Alyssa look herself in the mirror after the way she is treating Chris. What goes around comes around. She will get out of life what she puts into it. Karma will bite her in the butt – and I am sure everyone hopes that.

  7. Alyssa was dismissive, inconsiderate, rude, meanspirited, immature, and latched onto anything to use an an excuse to blame him for their supposed incompatibility and her unhappiness. She never gave him a chance as she is that superficial. Then she totally gaslighted him. When Chris called her out on her BS she either walked away or started crying because she was so frustrated her manipulative tactics weren’t working on him. What a horrible, horrible person. He deserved so much better.

  8. He does deserve better! I was so proud of him for saying he wants a divorce from her. She was trying to act like she was actually going to try, just so she could stay on TV for the ‘experience’! He put a stop to her narcissistic, mean, self-serving and callous behavior! Yay!!! No more perks for the selfish witch! She will be alone forever! Pastor Cal saw right through her too! Now, bring Chris back with a decent woman or just do some matchmaking off camera! He is a catch!
