Gina, a 35-year-old Nashville salon owner, and Clint, a 40-year-old tech consulting company owner, were matched to wed as strangers on Married at First Sight's sixteenth season by show experts Pastor Calvin Roberson and Dr. Pepper Schwartz.
Gina and Clint, who admittedly weren't attracted to each other, hit another major bump in the road when Gina felt body-shamed by Clint during their honeymoon due to a comment he had made about dating "more athletic and slender" women in the past.
While Gina and Clint have been shown giving their marriage an honest shot on the Lifetime reality series since then, Gina admitted she and Clint -- despite living together in Nashville, TN -- went nearly three weeks without kissing during the March 8 episode of Married at First Sight: Afterparty.
When asked if she and Clint were even pecking on the lips several weeks into marriage, Gina shared, "Our last kiss was on the honeymoon."
"So we are not [kissing]," Gina confirmed to Afterparty's host Keshia Knight Pulliam. "It just doesn't feel organic to grab his hand or kiss or things like that."
Gina joked that her dog Hank was giving them the most action and he "typically chooses Clint."
The lack of intimacy in Gina and Clint's marriage was probably difficult for Clint given viewers have come to know him as a sexual creature. After all, Clint claimed to have slept with 65 women prior to signing up for the show.
"I was a little surprised. I think Clint is more of a sexual being that I thought he was. I think Clint is a little freaky, and I had no idea!" Gina noted.
Gina and Clint, however, have been working on building an emotional connection on the show.

"We both come from childhoods where... emotion wasn't always a welcomed thing. We weren't taught how to process emotion. That's probably the hardest part for us, is diving into emotional conversation," Gina acknowledged.
But they both managed to open up to each other. Gina told Clint how her parents had divorced when she was young and she had to move around a lot growing up, which resulted in her going to therapy.
Gina also said she enjoys traveling, spending quality time with the people she loves, and decompressing.
In turn, Clint shared how he had gotten a girl pregnant and the woman suffered a miscarriage after a couple of weeks. Clint said the news "tore" him apart because he had been super excited about having a kid and being a provider and supporter.
Gina, who didn't come from a planned pregnancy, said she admired Clint's outlook on being a father.
"My dad wasn't heavily involved," Gina said on Afterparty.
"And so listening to how much he wanted to be involved and how much he wanted to be a dad was super inspiring and admirable. He's getting a little piece of my heart. It was very sweet."
Gina said that level of vulnerability was what her relationship with Clint really needed.
"Clint and I are both really building on the emotional connection, and so that's starting to get there," Gina said. "We're starting to be more vulnerable, and I'm just hoping that starts leading into the physical as well."
Clint was also hoping Gina could divert some of her attention away from her business as a salon owner. Clint has complained on the show multiple times about how Gina was obsessed with the salon and couldn't stop talking about it.
"I've really had to be cognizant of how much I'm on my phone around him or how much I'm just being present in our marriage, because he deserves the same amount... It's hard when you're set in your ways and focused on your business," Gina admitted.
"All of a sudden, it's a whole new dynamic to bring someone in and to be present."
Clint attempted to get to know Gina better by visiting her and meeting her colleagues at her hair salon. Clint seemed to get along well with the ladies, and Gina was seeing a new social side of her husband, whom she claimed was also a good cook.
The pair also bonded while going sailing on one of Clint's boats, and they also attended a fun professional bull riding show together.
