Married at First Sight Season 12 cast member Chris Williams is arguably one of the biggest villains in the show’s history. Recently, he attempted to set the record straight on his portrayal on the show – but he quickly backtracked.
Married at First Sight: Chris Williams One of the Biggest Show Villains
Nearly every season on Married at First Sight, there’s at least one bad apple in the bunch. The Lifetime matchmaking show has a long history of memorable villains. Whether it’s Molly Duff, Luke Cuccurullo, Matt Gwynne, or Zach Justice, one cast member brings more drama than the others.
For Married at First Sight Season 12 in Atlanta, that cast member is Chris Williams. What began with Chris telling his new wife Paige Banks that he didn’t find her attractive after they’d been intimate turned into an even bigger dumpster fire as the season went along. Ultimately (and not surprisingly), the pair went their separate ways. But Chris’ actions over the course of the season rubbed many viewers the wrong way.
Chris Sets the Record Straight – Digs a Deeper Hole?
Many Married at First Sight cast members (particularly perceived “villains”) want to touch up their public image after appearing in front of Lifetime cameras. Whether they are unhappy with particular edits or how they come across as a whole, many attempt to do damage control after a season wraps.
In Chris Williams’ case, he recently tried to set the record straight after everything that went down on his season of Married at First Sight. He shared his own Tell-All video, and in it, he had a lot of things to say. He cited the COVID-19 pandemic as the reason he couldn’t move out of the place he shared with his ex-fiance when she got pregnant. Still, even if COVID-19 were a factor, that doesn’t account for why he chose to continue being intimate with her.
Meanwhile, because Married at First Sight producers approached him to be on the show, he essentially threw production under the bus – blaming producers for his on-camera behavior since they invited him to take part in the marriage experiment.
Chris Williams went even further – attacking his ex, Paige Banks. He said he treated her the way he did because he wanted a wife that was a “9 or 10” – which, at least in his mind, she isn’t. He also claimed that he never wanted to be with Paige – even though he didn’t ask for a divorce on Decision Day.
Married at First Sight Star Not Helping His Image
Some Married at First Sight cast members embrace the villain moniker once they’re given that label. Chris Williams’ storyline with Paige is certainly the most drama-filled from Season 12. It seems Chris wants to do everything he can to shed that villain title, but without changing any of the behaviors that led to him getting it in the first place.
If Chris Williams thought this Married at First Sight Tell-All would somehow wipe the slate clean, it seems to have had the opposite effect. Meanwhile, sharing the video and then deleting it soon after doesn’t exactly help his cause in the eyes of most Lifetime fans.
