Following Chris and Alyssa's wedding ceremony, Alyssa appeared to keep her distance from Chris as she vented in confessionals that Chris seemed "immature" and his friends had called him "condescending." She didn't seem excited about or attracted to her new husband.
Chris, on the other hand, thought his wedding was a huge success and Alyssa was wonderful.
Chris thought Alyssa would just need time to open up to him, but then she suddenly had a meltdown behind closed doors and told him that she wanted to sleep in separate hotel rooms, which left Chris feeling deflated and shocked.
"You decided to spend your wedding night alone, right? Does any part of you wish that maybe you had chosen to sleep in the same room with Chris that night?" Married at First Sight: Afterparty host Keshia Knight Pulliam asked during the talk show's January 26 broadcast.
"I don't wish that I slept in the same room that night," Alyssa replied. "I really did feel uncomfortable with the way that day ended, and I knew that I wouldn't have been comfortable."
Keshia then flat out asked Alyssa if she felt attracted to Chris on their wedding day.
"He's not my type," Alyssa confirmed.
Alyssa insisted on Afterparty that she talked to Chris off-camera about how she was feeling in order to spare her new husband's feelings and save him from possible embarrassment.
Alyssa recalled telling Chris, "I said, 'I don't feel like you are my match.'"

"Did you tell him why?" Keshia asked.
"Mhmm. I did say the reasons why," Alyssa responded.
Alyssa told Chris on the latest episode of Married at First Sight's fourteenth season that they're "two very different people" who don't have much in common.
"I think our hobbies are extremely different. I think the way we would live our everyday life is very different," Alyssa explained to Chris.
However, Alyssa had only known Chris for a couple of days by that point, which prompted Keshia to point out that Alyssa was basing her assumptions about Chris "on hearsay" and not on his actual words or actions.
Alyssa focused in on the warnings she had received from Chris' groomsmen on her wedding night about how Chris can be opinionated, a tad argumentative, and preachy in his quest to bring out the best in other people.
But Alyssa said no one will ever fully understand what she was feeling after marrying her stranger husband, not even other former cast members.
The more Alyssa felt like she had to defend herself to Keshia as the talk show went on, the more she lost her composure.
Once the cameras were off her face, viewers could hear Alyssa venting to a producer behind a closed door.
Alyssa complained, "Physically, I do not see one characteristic in him that I asked [the experts] for."
Although Alyssa slept away from Chris on their wedding night, she still decided to go on their honeymoon to Puerto Rico -- with the intention of hanging out with their cast members, not necessarily together, and just having fun.
Alyssa told Chris that they could just try to get along and see how things go, but then she told him during the honeymoon that she felt "gypped" by being matched with him.
Once Chris voiced his frustration with Alyssa's lack of effort in their relationship and also questioned her motive for going on Married at First Sight to begin with, Alyssa yelled, "We are not compatible! I don't want to argue anymore!"
"Why don't we just stop and say, 'This isn't going to work?' And be respectful," Alyssa shouted.
Chris agreed to give Alyssa the space she wanted, but he felt Alyssa had been "gaslighting" him when she claimed he had disrespected her by sharing her off-camera comments with Alyssa's mother and best friend Taylor at the post-wedding brunch.
Married at First Sight's fourteenth season, which currently airs on Wednesday nights at 8PM ET/PT on Lifetime, also stars Mark's wife Lindsey Georgoulis, Olajuwon's wife Katina Goode, Steve Moy and Noi Phommasak, and Michael Morency and Jasmine Outar.
