Married at First Sight: Meka Talks About What the Cameras Don’t Show
Soap Dirt (SD): There are a lot of fights on Married at First Sight. Were there positive moments the cameras didn’t focus on?
Meka Jones (MJ): “I think the storyline we saw unfold was a pretty accurate representation of how the marriage went overall. There was a scene where I bought Michael [Watson] a breakfast sandwich maker that I thought was a really fun scene”.
Also, my mom planned a dinner for Michael and I at her house. She invited some of my family over and the intent was to get to know Michael better. I thought that was also a really sweet scene. But due to time constraints not everything can be shown”.
There’s definitely a lot of drama this season on Married at First Sight for Meka Jones and her husband. They slept in separate rooms during their honeymoon. And, it seems like they never really recover following that rough start. Certainly, there’s a lot to consider for this couple before Decision Day.

Meka Jones: “There’s a few things I would do differently if I had the chance [on Married at First Sight]. I would mainly work on not allowing my frustration to be so evident. I’d work on maintaining my calm, even when it was tough. I would also trust my gut and do what I feel is best regardless of what everyone else was saying”.
