‘Married at First Sight’: Reunion Host Kevin Frazer Calls Zach Justice Out For Breaking His Wedding Vows In Sneak Peek
Not only did Zach refuse to move in with Mindy after their honeymoon, but he rarely ever spent time with her when the cameras were off. What’s more, Zach even talked to Mindy’s friend, Lindsay—who had attended their wedding!—behind his wife’s back, only to be dishonest about it later.
Ultimately, Mindy called things off with Zach well before Decision Day. The ill-fated couple reaffirmed their decision to split on the Apr. 15 Married at First Sight finale. They’ll face off once again on the Apr. 22 Season 10 reunion.
And in an exclusive sneak peek of the reunion from PopCulture.com, it looks like host Kevin Frazier didn’t let Zach off easy for breaking his vows to his wife.
Frazier called Zach out for breaking his wedding vows in the sneak peek
In a sneak peek of the Married at First Sight reunion episode, Zach and Mindy sat down for a tense meeting, five months after Decision Day.
In the clip, Frazier appeared to call the fitness coach out for essentially abandoning his wife immediately after their wedding. During the season, Mindy revealed that Zach told her he didn’t find her physically attractive multiple times shortly after she walked down the aisle.
“Now, what changed from your wedding day, when you said that you will always make her feel like the most attractive woman in the world and you will always make her feel good and positive?” Frazier wanted to know, as Zach squirmed in his seat. “What changed from that day to the next day?”
Zach seemed to try to evade the question as he responded vaguely, “I think, just, a lot came over me, where you’re not thinking strictly back to the wedding day, and your vows. You get distracted by everything else that goes on in the process.”
Zach said he felt like he was in a ‘tough position’
But Frazier wasn’t ready to let up. “But I’m saying, did you mean those words that day?” he probed.
Zach insisted, “I did. Yeah, I did.”
“Then what changed by the next day?” Frazier continued. (Mindy, for her part, looked pleased with the line of questioning.)
Zach, who has since told Soap Dirt that he and Mindy were simply too different to make their match work—and that he tried too hard to “force” a union with someone he never felt attracted to—gave yet another vague reply.
“It’s hard to say. It’s not like I reverted back to those vows every time I was going through these tough situations. I didn’t think, ‘Oh yeah, my vows,’” the Married at First Sight star said. “You’re just overcome with different ideas and different thoughts, and it’s just a tough position to be in, I would say.”
The ‘Married at First Sight’ reunion host accused Zach of using word salad to evade his questions
As Zach continued with his roundabout answer, Frazier became visibly annoyed. “When you watch yourself make mistakes in the process and really miscalculate things and opportunities…” Zach began.
“What do you mean?” Frazier asked, cutting him off.
“Like, early on, when you try to be direct and communicate, you go into it thinking, all right, relationship, marriage. Let’s make this work, and how do you figure this out?” Zach explained, digging himself a deeper and deeper hole. “Versus, like, just go with the process. And I think I thought too much, and I obviously said too much.”
That’s when Frazier finally called Zach out for what both Mindy and some of the other Married at First Sight cast members (like Austin Hurd) have complained about: his insistence on giving long, vague speeches in lieu of a real response to hard questions.
Mindy claimed that Zach’s word salad and evasiveness about his possibly flirtatious friendship with Lindsay was what ultimately made her realize she couldn’t trust him—so this was an ongoing problem for the couple.
“I mean, we can talk in circles all day long,” Frazier declared, as Mindy smiled knowingly.
“I’m good at that,” Zach joked self-deprecatingly.
“No, you are,” Frazier repeated, keeping things serious. “I’m listening to you, and sometimes we don’t know what in the hell you’re talking about.”
It looks like Married at First Sight viewers, and Mindy, might finally feel some vindication during the reunion episode. Many fans wondered why Zach wasn’t called out more by the show’s experts or Lifetime producers for essentially refusing to participate in any aspect of the experiment in a meaningful way.
What’s more, Mindy was so over him by the end of the show that she didn’t care to engage more deeply with him or argue with her husband about his possible affair with Lindsay—which made sense, but left many fans frustrated. Maybe, at the reunion, Zach will finally get the accountability that many fans believe is his due.
