Mitch and Krysten tied the knot in the July 20 episode of Married at First Sight. But is happily ever after in the cards for the San Diego couple? On his wedding day, Mitch said that while he thought Krysten was “really pretty” he wasn’t sure she was his type. 

Mitch says he’s not ‘blown away’ by Krysten’s looks 

Mitch, an environmentalist, married Krysten, a software sales rep, on the 15th season of Married at First Sight. But it wasn’t exactly love at first sight for the 41-year-old groom. 

“So, at first glance, I think she’s really pretty,” he told a producer after the ceremony. “But I wasn’t like, right off the bat, blown away, attracted to her.”

Krysten, 32, had no complaints about her new husband.  

“Our first conversation is going amazing,” she said after their one-on-one champagne toast. His looks didn’t hurt either. “I like a tall guy, I like a beard, I like a bald head,” she said. “I love it. 100% attraction and chemistry right off the bat.”

After getting married to Krysten, it didn’t take long for Mitch – who has confessed to being a commitment-phobe – to start wondering if they were well-matched.

“My type is less physical and more lifestyle,” he said, though he did make a positive comment about her “voluptuous” figure. “She maybe seems, like, a little more mainstream than me,” he added.

One issue for Mitch? Krysten’s glammed-up wedding day look. 

“I’m much more attracted to a woman in her natural state than super dolled up for a wedding,” he said. “I don’t want to take anything away from the fact that she looks amazing … but I’d love to see [her] more natural side.”

Later, during their first dance, Mitch told his new wife that he liked it that she’d taken off her heels and that he was eager to see her in more casual attire. 

“I really just want to chill with my wife,” he said in an interview segment. 

Krysten opens up about ‘red flags’ on ‘Married at First Sight: Afterparty’

Mitch may have had some reservations about his new marriage, but Krysten was brimming with enthusiasm. However, during an appearance on Married at First Sight: Afterparty, she made some comments that suggested she and Mitch had a rough road ahead. 

“The red flags are just raining down upon me and I’m doing snow angels in them,” Kyrsten told Afterparty host Keshia Knight Pulliam when talking about her wedding day. “I’m going to give this man the benefit of the doubt and a true solid chance.” 

A teaser for the next episode of Married at First Sight also suggests that Krysten and Mitch hit a speed bump during their honeymoon. “I think I’m maybe being a bit more guarded than I’d hoped,” he tells her as they sit in bed together. Later, he confesses that he’s just not that attracted to his wife. 

“I’m not feeling that spark that you need to build a fire,” he tells a producer.  

New episodes of Married at First Sight air Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
