    "Married At First Sight" Season 12 Was A Hot Mess, And Fans Had A Lot To Say About The Finale

    This season was a headache!

    I don't know about you, but Season 12 of Married at First Sight left me emotionally drained, and a part of me is glad to see this season come to an end.


    It was filled with pregnant exes, sexless marriages, missing bracelets, and more! Here's what went down during the finale:

    🚨OBVIOUSLY SPOILERS AHEAD🚨 If you haven't seen the finale, don't scroll past this point!

    Paige and Chris β€” DIVORCED

    @mafslifetime /

    Lord knows I wanted to shake the hell out of Paige this entire season. Chris went out of his way to embarrass her time and time again, and yet she continued to give him more chances. It got to the point where it was hard to feel sorry for her. But after attempting his last manipulation tactic during the finale, Paige FINALLY realized Chris is trash and that she deserves better.

    Jacob and Haley β€” DIVORCED

    @mafslifetime /

    Okay, at first I sided with Haley, because she wasn't really attracted to Jake and he had his quirks, but as the season went on, I definitely became Team Jake. Haley didn't put in the effort to at least try with him. But once Jake realized Haley didn't care, he stopped caring too, and that's when we started getting introduced to his hilarious clapbacks. And don't even get me started on the $800 bracelet debacle!

    Ryan and Clara β€” MARRIED

    @mafslifetime /

    Clara is holding on to this relationship for dear life, but I just don't see it. I figured that she would stay married to Ryan, but he's given her NOTHING all season. I fear Ryan's inability to open up to Clara will ultimately hurt them in the end. I also feel like he's hiding something, but I can't quite put my finger on it. I don't see this marriage lasting.

    Erik and Virginia β€” MARRIED

    @mafslifetime /

    Virginia's decision to stay with Erik surprised me. Throughout the season, it seemed like he was more invested than she was. From their age difference and her drinking, to their unwillingness to compromise on the smallest things, I'd be surprised if they were still married by the reunion.

    Briana and Vincent β€” MARRIED

    @mafslifetime /

    My Season 12 faves! Briana and Vincent stole my heart as soon as they walked down the aisle. Like any other married couple, Briana and Vincent had their troubles, but they're both putting in the effort to work through them. Vincent's sensitivity to criticism and playful jokes had me nervous for a minute, but ultimately I knew the good times outweighed the bad. In the end, I think they'll find ways to balance each other out.

    Also, how cute was that cheesecake moment? Briana's face lit up!

    Here's how fans reacted:


    Whatever that one producer said to her -- yeah, thank you producer. #MAFS #MarriedAtFirstSight

    Chris's: You were the best thing that I never cherished. #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS

    Paige β€œApart of me thinks I look so f**king stupid” #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS

    So the real winner is Chris’ ex riding off in a new Mercedes, baby-less #MAFS

    Quiet as it's kept, Erik and Virginia are just as toxic as Chris and Paige... #MAFS

    #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS β€œSo Ryan, do you wanna stay married to Clara?” Ryan: ........................................ The experts:

    Ryan and Clara are alphas. They can't even be honest with each other about their frustrations. They can't even see that their relationship is so surface Level #MarriedAtFirstSight #mafs

    Why Ryan up here looking like a member of the lil rascals #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS

    Ugh heart goes to Jake. πŸ˜• He deserved better than Haley, he deserves someone who would truly love him and accept him. He has a lot of qualities that would make a good husband. I wish him the best. #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS

    Is Haley really accusing Jake of not making enough effort! This show isn’t good for my blood pressure! #mafs #MarriedAtFirstSight

    #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS Vincent bringing out the cheesecake to propose and say yes to staying with Briana is not only the best way to cap things off, but is also the most wholesome and beautiful moment in the history of this show.

    Briana said she ain’t gon dumb herself down & and keep herself β€œin check” for little Vincent! πŸ—£ PERIOD! #MAFS #MarriedAtFirstSight

    Brianna and Vincent are the only couple that we could root for this season. Yes they had their challenges, but the worked to overcome them. Happy for them #MarriedAtFirstSight #MarriedAtFirstSightatlanta #MAFS

    Happy that Briana and Vincent are staying together! Loved the cheesecake proposal! #MAFS #MarriedatFirstSight

    Twitter: @RealityTVU


    I have a lot of respect for Bri for saying that she refuses to make her personality smaller to make Vincent feel comfortable. I hope she and Paige remain in touch because Paige needs a friend like her. #MAFS

    What exactly does Erik see in Virginia? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” Like literally. What does he gain? #mafsatlanta #mafs #marriedatfirstsight

    I truly don't believe Virginia and Erik are a good match. They're just not. #MAFS #Marriedatfirstsight

    Twitter: @GRtwins07


    Virginia is childish and selfish. #MarriedAtFirstSight #mafs

    Twitter: @QueenMe228


    I feel like Eric is constantly looking at Virginia like this. #MarriedAtFirstSight #MAFS

    If I took a shot every time Ryan said β€œfor sure” I would be drunker than Virginia has been this whole season. #MAFS #MarriedAtFirstSight
