Married at First Sight: Couples Cam featured Jessica Studer and Austin Hurd finally buying a home, Greg Okotie showing his appreciation for Deonna McNeill as she was struggling through pregnancy symptoms, Keith Dewar bonding with Kristine Killingsworth's father, and Shawniece Jackson going back to work during the Season 2 episode Thursday night on Lifetime.

In addition to the nine couples who starred on Married at First Sight: Couples Cam's first season, Season 2 also stars the three new couples who chose to stay married at the end of Married at First Sight's eleventh edition, which ended its broadcast run on Lifetime last fall.


The nine returning couples are Season 1 couple Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner, Season 5 couple Ashley Petta and Anthony D'Amico, Season 6 couple Shawniece and Jephte Pierre, Season 7 couple Danielle Bergman and Bobby Dodd, Season 8 couples AJ Vollmoeller and Stephanie Sersen as well as Keith and Kristine Killingsworth, Season 9 couple Elizabeth Bice and Jamie Thompson, Season 9 couple Deonna and Greg, and Season 10 couple Jessica and Austin.

The new Season 11 duos to join the Married at First Sight: Couples Cam family are Karen Landry and Miles Williams, Amani Rashid-Smith and Woody Randall, and Amelia Fatsi and Bennett Kirschner.

Married at First Sight: Couples Cam's second season features raw, self-shot footage updating viewers on the current lives of the fan-favorite Married at First Sight couples.

The couples' domestic lives are documented in real time and shared via mounted cameras, "Diary Cams" and virtual group chats.

The initial premise of Couples Cam stemmed from the fact all of the Married at First Sight couples had to self-isolate and quarantine amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, so the stars welcomed viewers into their homes and daily lives.

Of the 12 successful marriages Married at First Sight has spawned, there have also been six babies welcomed in the world.

When Couples Cam's second season filmed, Deonna, Danielle and Ashley were all pregnant. Deonna and Greg are expecting their first child, while Ashley and Anthony had Baby No. 2 on the way. Danielle and Bobby were also expecting their second child.

(Since the show filmed, both Ashley and Danielle gave birth).

Below is an update on the couples, according to the latest episode of Couples Cam.

Ashley and Anthony

Mila recently surprised Ashley and Anthony with "the F word," and Shawniece shared how her daughter Laura knew how to say, "Because I said so."

Mila was shown going through "a daddy phase."

"She is totally obsessed with Anthony and all she wants to do is play with her daddy all day long," Ashley revealed.

"It's been of control lately. It's cute but it's also very frustrating because every time Anthony goes upstairs to work in his office, Mila absolutely loses it."


Mila was shown running after Anthony and having a meltdown or temper tantrum over her dad leaving her.

Anthony admitted he was gone the bulk of the day and so Ashley felt helpless downstairs because it wasn't very easy to calm Mila down.

When Anthony got hungry in the middle of his workday, he tried to sneak downstairs for some food without Mila noticing him but she caught him and, once again, cried!

Anthony acknowledged he had failed the mission, but Mila stopped crying once Anthony held her in his arms and told her to talk to the camera.

As Anthony attempted to get work done one day, Ashley decided to bake cookies with Mila to try to get her mind off Anthony's absence.

After the cookies were done, Anthony and Mila enjoyed a little cookie date together with banana-milk juice boxes.

Anthony gushed about how he loved Mila with all his heart and she was going to know that.

"She's never going to be second best to work or anything like that. She is daddy's girl and I hope that lasts for a long, long time and doesn't ever stop," Anthony told the cameras.

And Ashley said she absolutely loved the bond Anthony and Mila shared.

"It is so sweet to me. He is such a great dad. I couldn't ask for a better father for my children," Ashley shared in a confessional.

However, Ashley dropped a bomb on Anthony that he'd have to clean up the mess from the cookie baking experience.

Jessica and Austin

Jessica and Austin were struggling to find a house. While there were many houses they liked, the market in Washington, D.C. was super competitive and one house they liked apparently had 28 offers on it.

"Speaking of a house, make sure there's no ghosts in your house before you move in because that's something we think we have, a ghost in this house," Elizabeth Bice shared, adding that she was "really scared" some "b-tch" was going to be looking at her in the bathroom mirror one day.

Jessica and Austin then headed to Jessica's niece Myla's second birthday party that was flamingo-themed.

"Uncle Austin" presented his surprise costume at the party in which he dressed as a man riding a giant inflatable flamingo, which made the adults laugh and the kids run after him with excitement and pleasure.


Jessica told her twin sister that she and Austin were looking at houses and it was really hard because there weren't many affordable homes in the area where she wished to live.

Jessica wanted to save money knowing that raising a child is very expensive.

"I'm ready for the house hunt to be done. I just want to have a house!" Jessica complained.

Jessica and Austin later looked at their "one millionth house" in the Washington, D.C. area. Jessica said they weren't even being picky; it was just that other people loved the same houses they loved.

Jessica and Austin looked at a place in a great neighborhood between where the couple worked in the city and where Austin's parents and family lived.

Although the kitchen cabinets were a strange magenta color and there was an "ugly" carpet running up the stairs, according to Jessica, the house boasted nice hardwood floors and Austin pointed out a lot of the work to be done was just cosmetic and the house seemed to have good bones.

Jessica and Austin therefore decided to put in another offer, but Jessica noted she wasn't about to give her hopes up again.

Just as Jessica and Austin were growing tired of going to open houses, their realtor asked the couple to call her.

Once the couple got their realtor on the phone, she had some "good news" for the couple and said their offer had been accepted.

"I was sure this was going to be another 'no!'" Jessica exclaimed.

The pair only had to pay $1,000 over asking price, and Jessica and Austin seemed overjoyed.

"We did it!" Austin gushed. "I'm raising the roof because we're about to have a roof!"

Jessica also danced and celebrated and shouted, "We're about to be homeowners!"

Austin admitted he became defeated and pessimistic about the process and so this was just the best news ever.

Elizabeth and Jamie

On a rainy and gloomy day, Elizabeth and Jamie decided to do some crazy and fun stuff that was totally out of their comfort zones.

Elizabeth said she was going to find "the ultimate food challenge" for Jamie in Santa Barbara, and then Jamie threatened her with "a good time" by asking her to be a street performer for one day.

Jamie told Elizabeth she should be a mime because it would be a huge challenge for her not to speak.

"My damn mouth!" Elizabeth joked.


For Jamie's challenge, she found the world's spiciest chocolate and asked Jamie to take a couple bites. She gave him water, milk and crackers to help him out, and a nervous Jamie was definitely shocked to feel the sensation in his mouth.

Jamie said the chocolate was super spicy, especially the aftertaste, and he started to sweat at one point.

Elizabeth studied "the art of miming" for two weeks and totally committed to her task. Elizabeth even painted her face white with some black designs and red lips.

Jamie said Elizabeth looked like "a pro," and Elizabeth took to the streets and even blew up a balloon for a child.

Shawniece and Jephte

The couple's daughter Laura was shown practicing her colors and shapes and she pointed out one shape was an "octagon," which blew Jephte away.

Shawniece shared with Jephte how she had been staying at home with Laura and taking care of her but there were a lot of things she'd like to get done at the salon.

Shawniece therefore asked Jephte to stay home with Laura for a full day while she worked a full day at the salon. Considering Shawniece had worked two jobs since she was 15 years old, she looked forward to getting back to work and doing what she loves.

"It's been a while since Laura and I spent a whole day together by ourselves, but she's a toddler -- how hard can it be?!"

Jephte looked forward to a day alone with Laura as Shawniece worked on dying and cutting her wigs.

At one point, Jephte seemed overwhelmed with the amount Laura was crying and he did a lot of household chores.

"Honestly, no matter how ridiculous it gets, being a parent is still my favorite thing," Jephte gushed.

After a long day at work, Shawniece returned home to Jephte sleeping on the couch and Laura sleeping in her parents' bed. Shawniece said if Laura was sleeping at that time she wouldn't go to bed that night.

But Shawniece had a "wonderful" day and so she was all smiles.

"Going to the salon today was so amazing because being at the salon is what I love to do, and I'm so grateful to be able to spend so much time with Laura because of the pandemic," Shawniece said. "But honestly, she can be a handful."

Shawniece said Jephte clearly had everything under control, and she thanked him for "holding down the house" that day.

"Thank you for doing it all the time," Jephte replied, before kissing his wife.

Danielle and Bobby

A delivery suddenly arrived and Danielle accused Bobby of acting weird. She thought he was over "buying random stuff on Amazon," but Bobby said he "legitimately [needed]" this package.

Danielle opened the package and discovered rollerblades had been sent to the house.

Bobby insisted he needed the rollerblades for exercise, but Danielle joked that he was going to be "the old guy" skating through their neighborhood.


Bobby was playfully offended and Danielle suggested Bobby seemed to be having a quarter-life or mid-life crisis.

"Are you going to ask your friends to get blades or are you going to be a lone blader?" Danielle asked her husband.

Bobby planned to recruit some friends to rollerblade with him and all Danielle could do was laugh and say he'd probably end up playing with nine year olds.

Bobby ended up rollerblading through the neighborhood and attempted to do some tricks, but he quickly found himself exhausted.

"I'm really glad Bobby's enjoying himself, but if he falls and breaks his ankle and leaves me to take care of a newborn baby and Olivia all by myself, I'm going to murder him," Danielle said.

Bobby admitted his adventure hurt all different parts of his body and he was officially done rollerblading forever.

"I'm not just, like, done for the day. I am done for eternity. Blades are for kids," Bobby confessed.

Keith and Kristine

Kristine's father Mr. Dave was helping out the couple with their home renovation, and Keith said he was really thankful to have him around.

"Family is a real big thing to me, and I really don't have a relationship right now with my dad. I was hoping when I got married that my dad could be a part of our lives, but it didn't go the way I wanted it to," Keith admitted.

As Married at First Sight fans probably recall, Keith's father stood the couple up and let Keith down when they were supposed to meet at a restaurant.

Keith acknowledged that he really appreciated how Mr. Dave "showed up" for them.

When working on the house, something came up for Kristine at work and so she had to leave the guys alone in the kitchen.

Keith suggested to Mr. Dave they should do something else, enjoy themselves and have "a man day." Keith thought it would be a great opportunity to bond with his father-in-law because they only spent time together when Kristine was around.

Mr. Dave said he was "down" for a good time, and Keith appeared really excited.

Mr. Dave and Keith ended up going to The Gun Range, which Keith pointed out was "a perfect activity for an ex-Marine and a rookie."

Keith initially put bullets in the gun backwards, but he seemed to get the hang of shooting as he practiced more and Mr. Dave gave him some instruction.

Mr. Dave, on the other hand, crushed the activity and showed off his skills.

"Remind me not to sneak into Mr. Dave's house in the dead of night," Keith joked in a confessional. "This is so much better than the renovation!"

Keith said the day was awesome because he had grown up "with a bunch of females." Keith said it was nice to have a father figure who could teach him some new things.

Mr. Dave told the cameras that he had "a new son" and not just "a son-in-law."

"I'm so appreciative to have Kristine's dad in my life. I just admire him and look up to him as a man. He's the dad I wish I had, and to hear he views me as a son is like the best thing I can hear!" Keith gushed.

"Whatever you need, I'll be there," Mr. Dave told Keith.

Keith asked for advice on how to deal with Kristine once they got home, and Mr. Dave suggested Keith should pick up something sweet for Kristine to eat -- or pray.

Once Kristine got home, she saw that Keith and her father had gotten nothing done. However, Kristine forgave Keith once he brought her home some gummy bears, ribs, and chicken.

"Okay, well, you're not off the hook yet, but I'm going to eat that food," Kristine said.

Deonna and Greg

Deonna and Greg went to an ultrasound appointment and were able to hear their baby's heartbeat for the first time.

Deonna called the experience "beautiful" and had expected Greg to cry, but Greg said he doesn't cry over things like that.

"This is starting to feel very real to me as I'm starting to feel very pregnant," Deonna told her husband.

The couple's baby was the size of a pomegranate, and Deonna said "pregnancy brain is a complete and real thing." Deonna admitted words tended to escape her and her mind was just foggy.

"Nobody tells you it's going to be to this extent," Deonna noted, adding that she was burping a lot as well.

Deonna was also suffering from Carpal tunnel syndrome and had to sleep in wrist braces until giving birth.

Deonna, however, was such a good sport and joked with Greg as she wore the funny blue braces. Deonna was all smiles as she poked and prodded her husband before bed.

"I know it's going to be well worth it once the little one is here, but nobody tells you it's going to be like this," Deonna said.

While many people had told Deonna pregnancy is "so beautiful," she wasn't exactly feeling beautiful.

Given Deonna was going through some pregnancy symptoms and having a difficult time, Greg decided to do something nice for her.

Greg surprised Deonna with a bouquet of flowers and a plate of different sweets and desserts on their porch.

Greg thanked his wife and said he appreciated her for carrying their child. Greg also gave Deonna a card that she read aloud.

The card read, "Love, just wanted to show my appreciation for all that you do and endure during this pregnancy. Words can't express my gratitude for you and how you've changed my life. From, your Baby Daddy."

Deonna thought the gesture was so sweet and she gushed about how much she loved her husband.

"Lately, I have not been feeling like myself. There's somebody else taking over my body," Deonna told the cameras.

"I wouldn't change it for the world, but the fact Greg went out of his way to do such nice and sweet things for me just to remind me how much he loves and cares for me, it really means a lot. I couldn't ask for a better husband or Baby Daddy, because that's his new title now!"

Deonna then dove into a piece of cheesecake with strawberries.
