Married at First Sight: Does Chris’s Timeline Even Add Up?

Hey, y’all- Max, the Celeb Talk Guy here.


I think it’s safe to say Chris and Paige have had one of the CRAZIEST marriages in Married At First Sight history.

I hate to say it, but I saw it coming from the very first episode. When I was on the Married at First Sight Kickoff Special (Available on Hulu & Lifetime On Demand if you want to check it out!) I could tell Chris wasn’t ready to get married… and boy, was I right!


It feels like every week something new comes out about Chris’s past.

In last night’s episode, we learned that Chris hadn’t just been engaged once before, but AT LEAST TWICE!


I don’t know about you guys, but this timeline is getting a little bit too complicated for me. I thought I’d break it down for us all, so we can all try to figure out what the HECK is going on!


February 15, 2020

Chris gets engaged to his former fiancee, Mercedes.


June 10, 2020

Casting for Married at First Sight Season 12 wraps up.


June 28, 2020

Social media posts indicate Chris and Mercedes were together (and still engaged!) until AT LEAST the end of June 2020. Yes, you read that right: according to social media posts, Chris and Mercedes were still engaged AFTER casting for Season 12 ended. 


August 28-29, 2020

The Married at First Sight Season 12 couples get married in Atlanta, Georgia, including Paige and Chris. 


Early September 2020

A couple of days into the honeymoon, Chris learns that Mercedes is 6 weeks pregnant. Unfortunately for Paige, she and Chris had already had unprotected sex multiple times.


August-October 2020

During the filming for MAFS Season 12, we’ve watched Chris play Paige time and time again. At first, he told her that he wasn’t attracted to her, but she felt pressure to have unprotected sex with him due to her “wifely duties.” Since she’s found out about his baby-on-the-way, she’s jumped between leaving him and staying with him. 


Paige had her own pregnancy scare, and then she and Chris met with Mercedes, only for Chris to get mad when the conversation didn’t go the way he wanted. It feels like every week, Paige leaves Chris only for her to give him another chance by the end of the episode. 


I think I speak for all of us when I say: JUST RUN, PAIGE!


October 28, 2020

Chris posted on his Instagram that on October 28, 2020, he rushed Mercedes to the hospital only to find out that she had suffered a miscarriage.


October 31, 2020

Decision Day is filmed. No spoilers, but I think we all know where this one is going.




Stop reading here if you don’t want spoilers about what’s happening in the present-day!


February 20, 2021

Chris is spotted in Cancun with his ex-fiancee, Mercedes, and tells fans that she had a miscarriage.


March 10, 2021

Chris posts the now-infamous social media post letting fans know that Mercedes suffered a miscarriage just days before Decision Day.


That’s pretty much everything we know right now. Can you believe it? I’ve been watching Married at First Sight religiously since the beginning and I can’t think of another couple that has been this ridiculous or had this much drama.


Do you like the drama? Or do you wish they’d go back to less dramatic couples? I have to say, after this crazy season, even though the drama is entertaining, I miss the more normal couples and love stories!
