'Married at First Sight' experts Dr. Jessica Griffin and Pastor Calvin Roberson wrap "secret project"
By Reality TV World staff, 08/27/2018
Married at First Sight experts Dr. Jessica Griffin and Pastor Calvin Roberson have apparently wrapped filming a new project for Lifetime in a tropical setting.
Based on Jessica and Calvin's Instagram postings of the last few weeks, the pair have been filming a television project in St. Lucia that is presumably Married at First Sight: Honeymoon Island, the new Married at First Sight spinoff Lifetime announced late last month.
Jessica began dropping clues about this project back on August 6, when she posted a photo of her passport and wrote that she was about to board a plane at Worcester Airport in Massachusetts for "work" in an international location.
"Great day to travel. Very impressed by the friendly and smooth @JetBlue experience at Worcester Airport. Catch me if you can... #workworkwork #marriedatfirstsight #sevenyearswitch #mafs #international #travel #makinglovehappen," Jessica captioned the image.
Jessica then gushed she was "doing top secret stuff in top secret location" in an August 7 posting, and Calvin followed with an Instagram photo of a sandy resort beach with palm trees, umbrellas and lounge chairs on August 8.
"Loving life right now. #blessed," he wrote.
Jessica later shared additional pictures of a rainbow and her "office view" of palm trees and the ocean, as well as references to "drinks with little umbrellas."
While Jessica repeatedly referred to the experts' location as "top secret," Calvin seemed to accidentally reveal it by posting an Instagram photo of himself posing with a honeymooning couple in front of a liquor store at the St. Lucia airport on Friday.
Married at First Sight: Honeymoon Island will feature 20 participants unlucky in love -- both fan-favorite MAFS participants and previously unmatched candidates, as well as new singles -- gathering together on an island for an opportunity to make connections with each other.
Given the new spinoff's Honeymoon Island title, St. Lucia would definitely be an appropriate place to film such a series.
Based on the network's description of the show, it appears Lifetime is borrowing the premise of ABC's Bachelor in Paradise, which features rejected singles from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette receiving a second chance at finding love at a resort in Mexico.
The original Married at First Sight series is currently airing its seventh season set in Dallas, TX on Tuesday nights.
