During Wednesday night's episode of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered, Pastor Cal, Elizabeth and Amber watched back a Season 9 clip in which Keith opened up to his mother about Iris' alleged lack of emotional maturity and how she deserves someone who wants to "learn her in and out," seemingly suggesting he may not be that guy.

"No," Elizabeth agreed.
"He's more direct with his mom than he is with her, and that's unfortunate," Pastor Cal chimed in.
Elizabeth then accused Keith of beating around the bush a little bit in conversations they've had as friends.
"Sometimes you don't get a straight answer from Keith. I feel like he kind of gives you the run-around of what you want to hear. So, seeing this part of him, it definitely is an eye-opener," Elizabeth shared.
"It's like, 'Okay, so this is what you're kind of dancing around to.' I feel like Keith just needs to..."
"Be honest," Amber interjected. "Be direct."
"You kind of just have to stop playing 'nice guy' and you've just got to shoot straight to the point sometimes, whether it's going to hurt somebody's feelings or not," Elizabeth concluded.
Pastor Cal seemed to be in total agreeance, nodding his head as Elizabeth spoke her piece.
"It turns out that's actually nicer though," Jamie said on how to handle this situation, "because you're not leading someone on."
Amber then offered her opinion on whether Iris seemed to have stronger feelings for Keith than Keith seemed to have for his wife.
"I mean, I haven't talked to Keith, so I really can't evaluate his feelings for Iris," Amber responded.
"But I know Iris feels deeply for Keith, and I know she is getting to that point where she's really starting to fall for him. So I wish Keith could be direct and tell her exactly what he's feeling because that's a place to start."
Elizabeth later joked Keith wouldn't have to be loud and blunt about his feelings like she would be, but "there are other ways" to come clean to Iris.
Earlier in the Unfiltered broadcast, Pastor Cal also weighed-in on the moment Elizabeth's husband Jamie Thompson told her to "shut up" during a group outing at a racetrack -- and he definitely wasn't happy about it.
"It's unacceptable," Pastor Cal said. "As a man, you have a responsibility to protect your wife, and that's not just physically but verbally and emotionally."
"Whenever a man speaks those just very negative and very sharp and just disrespectful things, it kind of changes something inside you," he added.
