Married At First Sight fans pitied Al after he opened up about his fear of rejection from Sam in Monday night’s episode. Bless this sweet puppy of a 25-year-old man.
In case you missed it, Sam and Al were asked to rank each other with the other brides and grooms on the show last week. Al confidently put Sam first as Sam placed Al in third. She told him that she was more attracted to older men like IRL Daddy Anthony and Texan Daddy Andrew.
Al was pretty heartbroken by the results even compared to Sam’s response to his wedding vows made up of Eminem lyrics.
When the pair were asked to share a cheeky pash in Monday night’s episode, Sam said she didn’t want to do it. She explained that she didn’t want to go through with it because Al didn’t follow her to bed the night prior when they shared a smooch.
They eventually made out because of course they did. But the whole incident still left fans (me included) simping hardcore for the grown man who was doing the worm on his wedding day.
“Al is growing on me. Ok, I said it,” wrote one user as the episode finished airing.
“Al is so confused and I almost feel sorry for the poor kid,” added another.
Others have praised Al for his communication compared to other partners on the show—ahem, Andrew and Selin, take notes.
Here were the best tweets about Al’s reaction to Sam’s mixed signals in Monday night’s Married At First Sight ep.

Al is growing on me, his communication is far better than the other partners, and he’s actually willing to do better #MAFSAU #MAFSAUS #MAFS

Oh, for goodness sake! No wonder Al didn’t follow Sam to bed. The woman sends him all the mixed signals. He wants to kiss her and she ‘won’t do that’. She’s been doing this from the wedding day. #MAFSAU

Idk but I think since Sam rejected Al on the honeymoon he’s probably too scared to be too forward… #MAFSAU

The internet couldn’t get enough of Selin’s petty response to the stay or leave question in Sunday night’s episode, particularly after the experts went in on the MAFS bride’s behaviour. It also can’t stop seeing Mitch in a turtleneck as Jeff from the Wiggles—and you won’t either.
Married At First Sight airs at 7pm on Sunday and 7:30pm on Monday to Wednesday on Channel Nine and 9Now.
