On Married at First Sight's tenth season, Zach discovered after his wedding he lacked an attraction to his wife, and following a somewhat awkward and affection-free honeymoon, Zach refused to move into an apartment with Mindy back in Washington, D.C.
During the latest episode of Married at First Sight, Pastor Cal paid Mindy and Zach a visit to discuss their issues, and several former MAFS couples gave Zach a piece of their minds while watching the scene back on the February 12 broadcast of Married at First Sight: Couples Couch, which features commentary on encore broadcasts of Married at First Sight's tenth edition.
When Zach was shown meeting with Pastor Cal, Elizabeth said she wanted to "gag" at the sight of his good hair and tattoos.
"He's so mean to her but then he's so nice to everyone else," Jamie said.
"I know! That's the thing!" Elizabeth shouted.
Anthony poked fun at how Zach listed Mindy's positive attributes -- including "intuitive" and "aware" -- when trying to explain to Pastor Cal how the figure skater is perfect on paper but he didn't feel chemistry with her.
"'She's intuitive. She's aware?' Is she a piece of technology?" Anthony joked.
Zach was shown explaining to Pastor Cal chemistry is intangible and can't be manufactured.
"That drives things toward an attraction, right? That fuels your intensity to be able to interact and discover and make things work," Zach told Pastor Cal.

Pastor Cal took off his glasses and rubbed his face while listening, which the former couples found pretty funny.
"Pastor Cal is like, 'Come on, man! Come on!'" Ashley said.
Pastor Cal also rolled his eyes and admitted to Zach he was trying to understand what he was talking about.
"We're all trying to get there with Zach!" Elizabeth noted with a laugh.
Zach attempted to explain "something [was] missing" with Mindy even though he was attracted to most -- if not all -- of her qualities.
"You're not attracted to the way she looks," Anthony pointed out. "You don't like the way she looks."
"Trash!" Elizabeth yelled at her TV.
Shawniece said she understood what Zach was saying but the way he was going about it was all wrong.
"I think he's lying," Jephte insisted.
"I would understand if he had a preconceived notion of what she should look like and what she should be and she wasn't it and you have to come around that. That's different! But him saying [Mindy] is what [Zach] thought he wanted -- and still?"
Pastor Cal then asked Zach whether he wanted to stay in his marriage to Mindy and try to work things out.
"Where are you at, Zach?" Anthony asked when watching the scene unfold. "You're killing me son."
"I think the best thing would be to say he's done!" Ashley suggested.
"Wasting time is knowing or having the expectation it's not going to work but you're still just waiting to see [what happens]," Shawniece said.
"I got it," Jephte replied.
Zach said in the latest MAFS episode not living with Mindy right away made him feel comfortable and he wasn't going to force his relationship or put on an act for the sake of entertainment and Married at First Sight cameras.
Zach was apparently hoping that by being apart from Mindy, he'd miss her and want to reach out and spend time with her.
But Pastor Cal told the cameras on Wednesday night's episode, "Zach needs to man up and at least move in, get to know [Mindy], find out who she is, and see whether or not this woman can enhance your life."
