Amelia And Bennett Joined Married At First Sight For Very Different Reasons

Amelia Fatsi and Bennett Kirschner are one of the more whimsical couples in Married At First Sight history. Experts on the show expressed their hope for the Season 11 newlyweds to connect due to each of their "quirky" and "eccentric" personalities. Bennett, deemed "The Romantic Thespian," shared his goal of finding love in the marriage experiment. "What I want is someone who I get and who gets me," he told producers. "For the right person, I would consider myself a good catch."

Meanwhile, Amelia, "The Driven Dreamer," showed off her skills on the tightrope while hinting at the lighthearted approach she had for the experience. "I think that marriage is a lot more about deciding you're going to love somebody," she explained. "It's so special to be in a relationship with someone that you just adore. It's just like having a roommate you think is super sexy," she jokingly added. 

While the matched couples aren't supposed to meet until the day they exchange vows, Amelia and Bennett shocked viewers and experts when they admitted to having met before their wedding. After exchanging their vows, which included a slight revision from Bennett and an adorable rhyming poem from Amelia, the pair seemed off to a good start. But they later found out that they were on very different pages about being on the show.

Amelia Fatsi said she just wanted to be on TV

During their final night together ahead of Decision Day, Amelia Fatsi and Bennett Kirschner joked about if they would choose to stay together or not. It was at this moment when their different reasons for participating in Married At First Sight became crystal clear. While Bennett signed up to find a lifetime partner, Amelia revealed how she just wanted to experience being on television. "I really didn't think that I was ready to be married," she admitted to Bennett. "I mostly just thought it would be fun to be on a reality show." A visibly taken aback Bennett questioned his wife's intentions. "You didn't feel like you wanted to be married?" he asked before Amelia replied, "I guess it wasn't the number one driving force." 

While speaking with producers, Bennett expressed his doubts about their relationship due to the different mindsets they had walking into the marriage. But, Bennett shut down any speculations viewers had about their connection on Decision Day when he wiggled his pants down to show off a heart tattoo with Amelia's initials etched inside, Soap Dirt reported. Leave it up to these two to have one of the more "quirky" DD reveals in Married At First Sight history.
