Jonathan admitted Molly was everything he asked the experts for "to such a high [degree]" on his checklist or questionnaire when he first started the Married at First Sight process.
Even Pastor Calvin Roberson expressed frustration over the fact Jon and Molly chose to divorce on Decision Day, saying their split was "completely ridiculous" because the reasons why they were matched were so obvious.
"Molly and I get along. We can sit in a room, we can go have drinks, we can get along. We are the same person, and so that's where everyone is confused and where Cal is confused. And I'm sitting there like, 'This has been my frustration the whole time.' When she goes, 'I don't like you,' but [I'm thinking], 'I am you!'" Jon said with a laugh.
"They are exactly alike, it's crazy," Shawniece noted.
Jaclyn explained Molly and Jonathan had very similar personalities except Jon might have been a little more "playful" than his wife.
"You've got to understand. Molly was looking for someone with that playful adventurous side," Jon said on the Unfiltered special. "So that's what they wanted me to bring out of her -- so that at some point, those differences are complementary and not just differences."
Married at First Sight: Unfiltered host Jamie Otis confessed Molly and Jon's connection should not be overlooked and she truly believes something could still be there between them.
But Jon claimed there was no point in trying to make things work with Molly off-camera once the season wrapped filming.
"When you're looking at the good days and those are much fewer and further between than the bad days, you know, maybe it's because of the cameras she's not opening up, but when the cameras are there, she's not opening up," Jon explained.

And Jon apparently had nothing left to give once Molly declared she wanted a divorce from him.
"I do feel like Jon went into it and gave it his all. He literally gave up everything for this! So I think Molly was maybe uncomfortable with the whole thing and maybe she did shut down a little bit too soon. Maybe they could have overcome things," Jaclyn reasoned.
"You have to work with what you've got," Shawniece said of Jon and Molly's lackluster romance in which Molly did not find him physically attractive.
"If [Jon] feels he did everything he could with what he has, then it's fair to say he tried his best."
Although Jon's marriage with Molly turned out to be a rollercoaster, he insisted he "definitely" wants to get married again.
"If you give up on love, what is life?" Jonathan noted, before revealing what he learned from this extreme eight-week experiment on Lifetime.
