“But I’m still concerned about her being too extra for me. Some of things that she says are a little bit cringe-worthy

“She’s definitely pretty loud and pretty out there.”

Coco also told the producers: “I’m really trying to get Sam to warm up to me. The vibe I get from Sam is that he’s not into me that much.”

How did MAFSA viewers react?

MAFS Australia viewers appeared divided over Sam and Coco’s wedding day.

Some believed that the groom was too harsh on his new bride, with one saying: “Say what you want about Coco, but Sam is not even beginning to try #mafsaustralia.”

A second tweeted: “Coco is VERY loud and very extra but Sam shooting down every attempt at conversation she has is rude. #MAFSAustralia.”

A third agreed: “Sam is already trying to get Coco to modify her behaviour to suit his own tastes. RED FLAG. #MAFSAUS #MAFSAustralia.”

A fourth commented: “Sam might have been a bit harsh with the first impressions but Coco is like the Duracell bunny. #MAFSAustralia.”

However, others sympathised with Sam after marrying Coco.

On Twitter, one shared: “Good LORD Coco is annoying.”

Another said: “I’m not marrying her, and I’m still slightly scared of Coco. Pray for Sam, people. #MAFSAUS #MAFSAustralia.”

A third added: “Only one word to describe this Coco/Sam wedding so far – uncomfortable. #mafsaustralia.”

Married at First Sight Australia continues on E4, tonight, at 7:30pm.
