AceShowbiz - "Married at First Sight" season 8 returned with its second episode on Tuesday, January 8. The episode saw the last two couples tying the knot, joining the other two couple who got married in last episode as newlyweds.
The premiered episode ended after Kate Sisk and Luke Cuccurullo realized that they had met each other before this. It turned out that they met when she accompanied one of her friends to his speed-dating event. If you think the fact they weren't exactly totally strangers would make things easier for the new couple, you're wrong.
Kate, who walked down the aisle in a gorgeous lace dress, felt that Luke is attractive as they shared a kiss during the photoshoot. However, it seemed like the feelings were not mutual. "I don't like forced intimacy, especially with people around like our friends and family," Luke confessed. "It's awkward to kiss someone you don't know."
He showed his discomfort by kissing Kate's cheek when the photographer asked them to share a smooch. He also turned down guests' request for them to kiss. The drama intensified when Luke waved goodbye at his new bride, before going to his own room and closing the door.
Later, Kristine Killingsworth and Keith Dewar, exchanged their vows but not before the former made an "embarrassing first impression" in front of the latter. When she walked down the aisle, her garter started falling, but this went well after that. The newlyweds, who were a complete stranger to each other before, even shared a "fantastic kiss," with Kate saying of the kiss, "It had to keep going."
"He makes me feel safe, secure and wanted, like I'm attractive," the bride gushed. "Everything feels natural." Kristine's brother and dad later were seen approaching Keith, making sure he was all for making their Kristine happy. Keith looked a little hesitant, though.
Meanwhile, viewers got a glimpse of Stephanie and AJ's life after their marriage last week. Things changed a lot, and one of them was that AJ didn't have to spend dinner alone. Stephanie's friends also kept telling her that AJ was completely different from her exes. "That's probably a good thing," her pal said. "Like a breath of fresh air."
As for Jasmine and Will, they were seen bonding well with each other's family members. Dancing together, they looked crazy comfortable. "We have that initial connection, that initial chemistry," Jasmine excitedly gushed over her new marriage. "I think that will grow in the future."
