Married at First Sight viewers have been expressing outrage on social media at the ridiculous antics of the Season 17 cast, and now reunion host Kevin Frazier is speaking out.

The long-time host blasted the Denver cast at the reunion when they spilled the tea about their plan to deceive producers and viewers with made-up storylines.

Kevin has been answering questions about the shocking revelations from Part 1 of the reunion as people continue to air outrage at being duped by the cast.

We’ll hear what the experts say about all this when Part 2 of the reunion airs, and Kevin has been defending them online.

He confessed that Pastor Cal Roberson, Dr. Pepper Schwart, and Dr. Pia Holec are “embarrassed” and upset by how things have played out.

Kevin shared a screenshot from the Season 17 reunion that showed the cast on stage and asked viewers to give feedback.

The photo showed the women on one side clad in pink outfits representing female empowerment, with the men on the other side ready to face off.

Kevin Frazier defends the ’embarrassed’ MAFS experts amid Denver controversy

“Ok let’s go at, thoughts after the first episode of this crazy a** #Denver @mafslifetime Reunion? #MAFS” Kevin captioned the Instagram post.

The reunion host wanted to hear from MAFS fans and he certainly got a lot of feedback, questions, and opinions in the comments.

“Stop telling us the producers and ‘experts’ only want these matches to work! It’s obvious their intention is the opposite,” wrote one Instagram user.

That remark garnered a response from Kevin in defense of the experts.

“Experts hate this madness and the dissension. They are truly embarrassed by some of the behavior,” he confessed. “They really really really want things to work and HATE these divorces. That’s the real truth. They were pissed by some of the bs the couples pulled.”

There’s a change in the works for MAFS Season 18

Kevin also teased that things will be different in Season 18 after a commenter wrote, “I’m disappointed with the entire Denver cast.”

“I have been a fan of MAFS since season 1. The last 4 seasons have been a snooze. It’s time for a shake-up!!!” continued the viewer.

The MAFS host responded, “there are some changes being made with Chicago … people really come on saying they want to get married and be in love, then don’t want to be married or in love…”

I hope that season 18 is a little bit better and have more mature couples that realize they are marrying strangers. If you are not flexible and open-minded, please do not try this process. And for goodness sake, selfish people do not need to even think about being married. Season seventeen was a big disappointment.

Debra I can’t agree more! I didn’t even watch finish Season 17, lost interest. The surveys, screening, application, in person interviews, everything needs to be scrutinized to ensure these couples are open minded people who really want to commit to relationship. Marriage is difficult for people who have dated for years so for two strangers, it’s even tougher. You have to open up if you really want it to work. I think they should spend more time on. The couples who made it too because it shows the process can work if you come in with the right mindset. Don’t want to see another season of people not willing to be open minded!!!!!

Stop housing all the couples in the same building just so Kinetic Content can save money and make filming more convenient for the producers and crew.

So you didn’t say what changes, if any, will be made for season 18! These people made mince meat out of season 17. They should be sued and fined for their actions and behavior. They only wanted the money given to them! They were not interested in falling in love and continuing their journey with their partner. Don’t let them get away with this!

I think the experts should consider separating the couples. They’re too much in each others business. I don’t remember all this togetherness in earlier seasons.

I truly believe if a couple decides they don’t want to stay married during the season, they should be done! NO MORE CAMERA TIME! Done. Over. Out. If they want to come back for the reunion show and state why it didn’t work out, fine but if they are being paid for episodes, they do not get paid after they announce they are over and out. This may end some of the bs. Some I feel may just want camera time (optics-a word I never realized I would grow to hate so quickly!). That eliminates that. We viewers that really love this concept do NOT want to see all the drama. We want to see the beginning of a love story so if producers or whomever are shooting for the drama, they got their fill Denver season and hopefully realize that WILL NOT WORK!

Anyone who subscribed to Season 17 should be gifted Season 18. There was no way the cast (or any interfering) producers gave us an authentic series of programs about genuine people willing to share their emotions so viewers could learn as they watched. This was embarrassing, inauthentic, and not truly reality TV.
