MAFS Reactions: No Experts, Standing Up For Yourself Will Never Be “Self-Sabotage”

"Alana is an icon and a queen"

After a little bit of a break, Married At First Sight is back with a bang—with tonight’s commitment ceremony nothing short of drama. We’re following on from the couple’s retreat and dinner party, which saw Alana stick up for Melissa by telling her a conversation Bryce had shared with her TV husband Jason.

Viewers are in agreement: Alana did the right thing in standing up for what she believes. The “icon and queen”, as the audience has rightfully described the reality star, used the opportunity at the commitment ceremony to tell the experts, no, she didn’t regret saying what she did. 

Upon reflection, she admitted that the moment she chose to share the information wasn’t right, but it needed to be told—which, YES, finally someone in the experiment is beginning to understand. And on that note, it should be stated that it is not, and never will be, “self-sabotage” for standing up for what you believe in, especially in a relationship. 

Below, we’re rounding up the best reactions to tonight’s MAFS commitment ceremony, and we have one thing to say: Alana, we stan a confident, self-assured woman and thank you for being brave enough to stand up for other women.
