Married at First Sight season 12 may have one of the biggest shockers to date involving Chris Williams and his wife — and reportedly, another fiancee. There was already a big bombshell about a pregnancy linked to one of the cast. But now some people think that one of the MAFS 12 husbands cheated.
Married at First Sight: Chris Williams Engaged to Another Woman?
Fans noticed that Pastor Cal Roberson from Married at First Sight asked Chris Williams if there were any women that might think they were dating him. Because all the cast should be single heading into the social experiment. Then, Chris said that no one had any claim on him. But that seems like that might not be entirely accurate.
That’s because of news recently leaking that Married at First Sight husband Chris was not only with another woman — but they were engaged. In fact, according to leaker MAFSfan, Chris Williams got engaged to a woman named Mercedes on February 15, 2020. And beyond that, Chris was reportedly still in an engagement as of the end of June 2020.
Fans worry for MAFS wife Paige Banks. And they think Chris may have been with the other woman even while he marrying Paige. And fans call out the experts for failing to look into Chris Williams’ past. In fact, many Lifetime viewers said they think Paige Banks and Chris were a couple set up to fail from the start.
The image below is Chris proposing to his former fiancee at a family dinner in early 2020. And below right is the ring Chris Williams put on fiancee Mercedes’ finger. So, how did he go from that proposal to being on the new season of Married at First Sight?
Chris & Paige Banks’ Marriage
Married at First Sight couple Paige Banks and Chris Williams married at the end of August 2020. However, as of the end of June 2020, he was still with his fiancee, the woman named Mercedes. That same fiancee snapped photos for the magazine profile on him below, published months after he married Paige.
The timeline for Chris is all over the place considering his confirmed engagement earlier in 2020. A message from Mercedes’ mother also confirmed that he spent the spring early summer lockdown with her daugther. So, when did he marry Paige Banks? The leaker confirmed that Paige taped separately from Chris during part of Married at First Sight Atlanta. And that other relationship might be the reason.
Viewers just starting this season say that Chris Williams was a bad idea from the beginning. And many believe that Pastor Cal had some idea that something was wrong because of the questions. Now, Married at First Sight watchers feel bad for Paige. And they hope that she can get an annulment if her marriage was not legit from the jump. One thing’s clear – this might be this season’s trainwreck on MAFS.
Married at First Sight: Season 12 Dumpster Fire?
Longtime watchers of MAFS know that many of the couples don’t seem like good matches — despite the experts pairing them. And with the news about Chris Williams also having a baby on the way, it has even more people shaking their heads. In fact, some wonder if Lifetime purposefully wanted to make this Married at First Sight season a dumpster fire for ratings.
Married at First Sight husband Chris says he wants a wife that is “freaky.” And some people think that he might want more than one woman. At one time, he was a preacher like his dad but not anymore. Whatever the case, fans look forward to seeing how the relationship plays out. And they hope Chris Williams didn’t hurt Paige Banks too badly as MAFS ATL plays out.
