Longtime reality TV fans may have noticed a true blast from MTV’s past while watching the latest episode of Married at First Sight. It turns out that Henry actually has three women he calls close friends and one of them is none other than Trishelle Cannatella from The Real World.

While his friend Kristin popped up at the bachelor party, Trishelle didn’t make her debut until after the wedding ceremony.

It was during the reception when Henry’s friends were grilling the bride about her reasons for getting married to a stranger that we heard Trishelle’s all-too-familiar voice.

While Henry’s friends seem friendly, they are also clearly skeptical of his decision to get married to a complete stranger. In fact, Kristin even mentions that she isn’t feeling the situation at all and has her reservations about anyone that would agree to the process.

So when they ask Christina why she decided to get married this way, both of them perked up at the mention of her very recent breakup. Perhaps they thought that was a red flag for their friend’s new relationship.

But when Christina started talking about how she didn’t trust herself to pick a good man and that she wanted someone caring and sweet, everyone seemed to agree that Henry was the perfect catch.

Later, in a confessional, Trishelle and Kristin opened up a bit more about their friend and surprisingly, it was Kristin who said she wouldn’t “respect the marriage.” Trishelle seemed truly shocked that her friend said that about Henry and Christina.

And to be honest, it was a surprising moment because she was the one who was so offended by Brett’s flirting during the bachelor party. We initially thought it was because he also was getting married the next day. Maybe she just found him offputting because it’s hard to imagine she would respect his relationship either.

When it comes to Trishelle, she confessed that she went on a date with Henry once. And while she said that he’s very attractive, the former The Real World star said the date was boring.
