Chris Collette and Alyssa Ellman already had MAFS viewers skeptical of their compatibility and, after witnessing their awkward wedding on the latest episode, it seems MAFS viewers were right to be suspicious that these two would be a match. 

Not only do MAFS viewers not see Chris and Alyssa’s potential, the very officiant who stood at the altar and married Chris and Alyssa also doesn’t think their marriage looks too promising. 

Officiant Steven Martins gives Alyssa Ellman an important reminder 

It’s common for MAFS viewers to share their blunt honest opinions about the MAFS cast each episode, but in a rarer occurrence, a MAFS officiant has shared his thoughts on a couple that he got to witness up close and personal. 

Steven Martins is a Justice of the Peace in Massachusetts where Married at First Sight Season 14 takes place and he married Chris Collette and Alyssa Ellman.

According to his bio on the popular wedding website The Knot, Steven Martins provides wedding officiant services throughout New Bedford MA, and beyond. Notably, he was appointed by the Governor of Massachusetts as one of the youngest Justices in the commonwealth and he prides himself on always putting people first. 

After watching the latest episode of Married at First Sight, Steven surprisingly weighed in and revealed his first impression of Chris and Alyssa when he married them as well as issued some advice for Alyssa to remember after her ‘cold’ behavior. 

Steven tweeted, “When I married Chris and Alyssa on [Married at First Sight], I truly thought this might be it. But, always remember Alyssa, teeth can be fixed. A cold heart, cannot.”

Steven Martins questioned about signing an NDA 

Married at First Sight typically has strict nondisclosure agreements so that the cast doesn’t spoil the end results of the season. One MAFS viewer found it surprising that Steven was even able to speak about the wedding and questioned Steven in the comments. 

The MAFS viewer wrote, “Dude. You didn’t have to sign an NDA?”

Steven Martins replied back, emphasizing that he doesn’t know the final results of Chris and Alyssa’s marriage and also expressed that he doesn’t have high hopes for them after the latest episode. 

Steven wrote, “I have no idea if they work out or not. I just pronounce them. But clearly, this episode doesn’t look promising!”

Steven’s sentiments are shared by several MAFS viewers who dislike Alyssa, although MAFS veteran Jamie Otis believes Alyssa and Chris can shock the world and fall in love. 

Do you think Chris and Alyssa will work out in the end or will their marriage continue to fall apart? 

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

    • They are not going to work out. I didn’t think this was a good match from the very beginning when the selectors were being chosen. There is something about her that just can’t be trusted.

  1. They are not going to work out. Never saw them together from the beginning.I’m really not sure how the experts matched them. She is not a nice person.

  2. The man is unattractive. The cold hearts go to the “experts” who set them up. His teeth are gross and even his friends are hard on the eyes. I’d come off as a cold fish too because I couldn’t fake being attracted to a stranger.

    • She’s cold blooded and karma will get her. If a man treated a woman like that you would never hear the end of it. I feel really bad for him.

      • What a sorry excuse of a petty little person she is!!! Why in the heck didn’t they just send her home that first night. I think she just wanted to be on TV, and has wasted everyone’s time. She’s as deep as a mud puddle! Poor guy! He deserved better!!!

    • NylaQ….based upon your comment it seems that you believe looks are the only important thing and that you are only interested in looks…how shallow and sad for you.

    • Oh my goodness!! Of all of what you could have shared, you share this?!? Wow!! You and Alyssa are more alike than you know!! This poor guy was done a disservice by the so-called experts and given a poor excuse of a cold callous heartless woman to be his “wife”. I’m very serious about how incredibly cold you are. Shame on you!!

    • I totally disagree with you! I think Chris is a handsome gentle man and is passionate, truthful. And understanding. You can not say She has any of those qualities. In my opinion she is definitely not a bathing beauty herself!

  3. I think she is very cold hearted .She should not even applied for the show.She don’t want to even hold his hand.She thinks she is all that but she is not.Maybe another woman is her speed.

  4. She doesn’t seem like a very nice person. Too dramatic about the least little thing. He seems like a good guy. She is more interested in looks than heart. He deserves better.

  5. Chris is so nice and she is beyond ridiculous! If I was her mother I would be so ashamed of her. Talk about stuck up… looks are all that matter to her. She can feel free to be an old maid. No man deserves her crap!

  6. Totally think she is in the wrong and needs to reevaluate her actions. She didn’t even give him a chance…..very disappointed in her behavior. I hope she takes all of the remarks and uses them to grow and become a better person. I say this with compassion for her. We all have issues, it’s what we do about them when we have the chance to change. I’m a better person for all the challenges I have overcome, and wishing the same for her!
