Married at First Sight stars Zack Justice and Katie Conrad who reportedly went on a date together after Season 10 of Married at First Sight wrapped up, called it quits even before their relationship actually started.
“Married at First Sight” is a reality TV show that premiered in 2014 and has since spawned multiple seasons in several different countries. The show follows a group of singles who agree to marry someone they have never met before, with the help of a team of relationship experts. These experts use scientific matchmaking methods and psychological testing to pair up the couples, who then meet for the first time at their wedding ceremony.
Once the couples are married, they spend several weeks living together and attempting to build a relationship. They also participate in therapy sessions with the experts to work through any challenges that arise. At the end of the experiment, the couples must decide whether to stay together or get a divorce.
Zack and Katie, the most talked about couple on the show were initially paired with Mindy and Derek, respectively. It was only after the show ended and they broke up with their initial matches that they went on a date with each other.
Zack And Mindy
Zack Justice and Mindy Shiben were a couple on the 10th season of the reality TV show “Married at First Sight.” They were matched by the show’s relationship experts and met for the first time on their wedding day.
Throughout the season, Zack and Mindy’s relationship had its ups and downs. Initially, Zack seemed attracted to Mindy and expressed interest in getting to know her better. However, as the season progressed, it became clear that Zack had reservations about the relationship.
One of the main issues in their relationship was Zack’s lack of attraction to Mindy. He felt that there was no physical chemistry between them and struggled to connect with her on a deeper level. Mindy, on the other hand, was more committed to making the marriage work and tried to initiate intimacy and build emotional intimacy with Zack.
Things only got worse when he had a shady, behind-the-scenes flirtatious friendship with Mindy’s close friend and wedding guest, Lindsay.
Although Mindy and Zach did choose to give their love a chance, things didn’t appear to improve once they returned from their honeymoon. Thus, people were not at all surprised when the newlyweds decided to go their separate ways.
Katie and Derek
Katie Conrad and Derek Sherman were matched by the relationship experts of Married at First Sight.
The experts thought that they will be a good match because Katie was the serious and realistic one and Derek was the one with big ambitions.
Though people say that opposites attract, this wasn’t true in their case. Katie was was unsupportive of the big goals Derek had in mind and she also hated the attention Derek used to give to the other female co-stars on the show. On the other hand, Derek thought Katie was too emotionally consumed with her ex-situation to concentrate on their marriage.
The pair tried to save their marriage and gave it their full efforts, but we guess it wasn’t meant to be and by the end of the season they were on the way to filing a divorce.
Zack and Katie’s Journey
After the filming of the Season 10 of Married at First Sight ended, Zack and Katie went out on a “drinks” date together which they admitted in the Reunion episode of the show.
“I got drinks with Zach. I think it was a couple of weeks before Christmas kind of just to talk about this whole experience,” Katie admitted to reunion host Kevin Frazier after being questioned about the meet-up.
At this, Zack looked uncomfortable and said that it was just to discuss the show. “You know, you only have so many interactions with each other on camera, so that was a lot of catching up. So yeah,” he added, while his estranged wife Mindy Shiben (the couple chose to split on Decision Day) looked visibly upset next to him.
When Mindy was asked how she felt after knowing that Zack went out on a date with Katie, Mindy uncomfortably said, “Nothing really surprises me anymore.” Mindy also admitted that it was Katie who told her about the date and not Zack. She told the host, “Katie texted me because she kind of felt bad about it.”
After knowing what Mindy had gone through during the relationship with Zack, Katie decided that she doesn’t want to date Zack because of the way she treated Mindy in their marriage.
Marriage at First Sight star explained, “I’m sorry, Zach, but we got drinks before things had aired. So after seeing what had gone down between Zach and Mindy, I feel for Mindy a lot more.”
She added, “And obviously, you know you didn’t handle it very well. And that is something that I wouldn’t want as far as dating goes. I wouldn’t want to be involved with that.”
Katie Conrad recently got married to the man she calls the “love of her life” Brandon Eaves.
