Married at First Sight: Bennett Kirschner & Amelia Fatsi Were Instant Favorites

Married at First Sight Season 11 in New Orleans introduced some memorable couples to viewers. Of course, you can’t think of that season without mentioning Woody and Amani. Indeed, they are one of the most successful couples from the whole franchise – and certainly a fan-favorite duo.

Meanwhile, early on, Married at First Sight watchers believed the experts hit it out of the park when they matched Amelia and Bennett. They both have quirky personalities and a love of the arts. In addition, their energy and vibe were a total match. Because of this, viewers have been scratching their heads for months, wondering what went wrong.

Bennett Shares Telling Update

Bennett Kirschner recently shared a touching update with his Married at First Sight fans. He said that he is welcoming a dog into the family after he and his friend Pete found the “sweet little pup” on the street. And from the looks of it, Bennett has already named the adorable pooch Peanut. He even joked that “we” (him and his friend) fell in love with the animal “at first sight” – which is more than can be said for how he felt when he first saw Amelia at the altar.

Meanwhile, in addition to sharing the update about his new furry family member, there’s a lot of subtext that alludes to why things didn’t work out with Amelia Fatsi. First of all, Bennett seems rather cozy with his “friend” Pete in his latest update. In addition, he also uses the term “we” a lot in reference to how they both feel about their new pal.

And what’s more, Pete shared the same update on his social media page, but the caption he wrote is even more telling. Sharing the same update with Peanut and Bennett, Pete wrote that he is “really excited” for this “next chapter”. Along with that, he said: “First step a dog. Second step a HOUSE”.

Married at First Sight Experts Barking Up the Wrong Tree?

For years, viewers have slammed Married at First Sight experts for disregarding preferences when it comes to matching participants with their future spouses. As a recent example, the experts matched Luke Cuccurullo with Kate Sisk even though Luke prefers African-American women. And based on this latest update from Bennett, it looks like the experts didn’t just drop the ball – they were in a completely different ballpark.

As Married at First Sight watchers noted from the very beginning, Bennett does things like wear nightgowns to bed. Meanwhile, he isn’t traditionally masculine in the classic sense – and he certainly comes across as more of the soft, introspective type.

Of course, the Married at First Sight experts may have dismissed these signs and chalked it up to him being an eccentric, “out there” theater type. But based on the latest updates from both Bennett and Pete, it seems they completely skipped over the fact that he appears to have a preference for men.

And if this is true, the Married at First Sight experts should have matched him with an Adam and not an Amelia. Certainly, watchers have been speculating for months as to what could have gone wrong in Bennett and Amelia’s seemingly perfectly matched marriage. And if it’s true that the experts were barking up the wrong tree with Bennett this entire time, watchers may finally have their answer.
