Married at first sight Husband and wife couple Shaquille and Kirsten hit it off at their wedding reception and shared a sweet moment laughing at the food they were being served. Just as they began to learn more about each other and what they had in common, they realized that neither of them liked the same salad.
Some viewers have concluded that many of Season 16’s five games appear incompatible. But there’s still hope that Kirsten and Shaquille could form a lasting love affair.
After Kirsten met Shaquille at the altar, she shared he had two hits on him — that he was bald and younger than her. But on the bright side, she thought he had a great smile and nice teeth.
Kirsten also complained on camera that Shaquille hadn’t asked to kiss her at the altar. This led to her offering her cheek instead of a more traditional newlywed kiss. That was a move that some Married at first sight Viewers found it uncomfortable, even “freezing cold”.
Remarkably, her circumstances are unique, and we’re not suggesting that Kirsten should feel ashamed of doing what was comfortable for her. But then again, getting a cheek on his wedding day was probably not Shaquille’s ideal. And he didn’t seem to know that she would have liked to ask his permission for a kiss.
But this could be their first lesson in the importance of communication should they end up as a couple in order to stay married.
At their wedding party as married strangers, Kirsten and Shaquille discovered they had an interesting thing in common. At first, Kirsten seemed a little lukewarm to Shaquille, but things seemed to spark a little more between the couple as they waited for their wedding dinner.
They started chatting, and when they were each presented with a plate of what appeared to be burrata salad, they had the same thought. They didn’t want to eat it.
After looking at each other and agreeing that the salad looked unappetizing, they shared a sweet laugh. Kirsten then admitted that she started liking Shaquille a little more once she met him. So, fingers crossed they might be one of the rare couples to last.
Shaquille seemed to impress Kirsten again when he performed a lap dance for her at her reception while removing her garter with his teeth. She told him to keep his clothes on – see you later. In a clip of part of the dance shared on Instagram, fans generally agreed that the couple seems to be heading in a good direction.
“I think she was a little put off at first because of her preconceived notions, but I think (hope) they’ll have some fun together. They’re a really good match (on paper),” one commented. Another popular response is, “I love him! I hope they make it!”
