‘Married at First Sight’: Paige Faces Off with Chris & His Ex

Married at First Sight star, Paige Banks faces off with Chris Williams and his ex-fiancee this week. Paige showed nothing but grace and dignity in the last episode after her spouse refused to move into their new apartment in Atlanta. What will this meeting reveal?

Married at First Sight: Paige Banks Accepts Chris Williams’ Odd Request

Paige Banks received a strange request from husband Chris Williams in this week’s preview of Married at First Sight. He asked her to have a face-to-face meeting with his ex-fiancee, the mother of his unborn child. Paige surprised MAFS fans when she agreed.

In a recent interview, Paige Banks revealed she had no interest in engaging with or meeting Chris WIlliams’ ex. Her only regard is out of “respect for the process” for Lifetime’s Married at First Sight. She said she is committed to this journey, and it has nothing to do with her husband.

Fans commented that they don’t understand the point of Paige’s encounter with Chris’ ex. They say it serves no purpose in their relationship. Especially if Chris Williams is going through with a divorce, as he told her during a recent episode of Married at First Sight.

Married at First Sight: Face to Face with Paige & the Ex-Fiancee

Paige Banks meets with Chris and the mother of his baby in a civil MAFS setting. Paige shows little emotion, although she does ask how his ex, Mercedes, is feeling. Mercedes confirms to Ebony magazine that she’s about seven weeks pregnant (at that time).

Paige also wonders whether Mercedes knew about Chris Williams participating in the Married at First Sight process. Mercedes says she found out when she told him about the baby.

Mercedes admits to some confusion at finding out Chris is married now, which causes Paige Banks to laugh. Married at First Sight fans are speculating as to the veracity of Chris’ claims about the timing. Perhaps this interview will lay those doubts to rest.

Chris Wants to Clear the Air

Near the end of the interview, Chris speaks up. He is looking at the floor for most of the conversation between Paige Banks and Mercedes. Chris Williams explains that his reasoning for this meeting on Married at First Sight is to clear the air between his wife and his child’s mother.

Mercedes tells Paige Banks she has no ill feelings toward her”at all.” Mercedes says, shocked doesn’t cover her reaction to finding out Chris was married.  Some viewers of the Lifetime show Married at First Sight believe the production staff pushed her into facing Mercedes.

Other MAFS fans question Chris’ intentions. If he plans to divorce Paige, why the encounter between her and the ex?  It doesn’t make any sense to followers of the show. They only hope she can make a clean break from Chris Williams.
