Married At First Sight’s Bryce Ruthven blindsided ‘wife’ Melissa during Sunday’s commitment ceremony, when he initially wrote ‘leave’ but then scribbled it out and decided to stick it out instead.
And if you thought the whole thing felt a little bit off and forced, The Wash can reveal there was a bit more to it than what aired on television.
We were actually outside the studio warehouse on November 7 when this was filmed, and it looked like the whole thing was purposely set up, and just a big joke at Melissa’s expense for some drama?
Bryce couldn’t stop smirking as he wrote ‘leave’ and then changed it to ‘stay’.
After first chatting with other grooms, he was taken to a window and filmed writing his decision on the card – and appeared to be getting some guidance from a member of the crew?
The pair laughed as they filmed different angles and close-ups of Bryce’s words, and he hardly looked like a torn man contemplating a big decision.
It also felt a little off as the casts’ decisions are meant to be private until they’re on the sofa… not shared, discussed and joked about.
