Elizabeth dreaded going on a boat ride with her Married at First Sight co-stars in Antigua during a recent episode, and towards the end of the ride, she began yelling at Jamie to "f-ck off" when he was trying to comfort her. (WATCH A VIDEO CLIP OF THE SCENE BELOW!)
Although it appeared Elizabeth overreacted, she attempted to justify her behavior during a Wednesday night appearance on Married at First Sight: Unfiltered.
"I actually was going to go throw up, like, that's where I was heading to [when I got off the boat] -- the bathroom. I was feeling really sick," Elizabeth shared.
But Married at First Sight expert, Dr. Viviana Coles, didn't seem to think that was an appropriate or valid excuse for how Elizabeth had handled herself.
"But is it that hard to just say, 'Hey, I'm about to go throw up, I need to get off this boat,' vs. 'F' him and saying things [like that]?" Viviana asked Elizabeth with her eyes wide in shock and disbelief.
"You would think so," Elizabeth replied. "But we all have our own ways of handling things."
Viviana, however, pointed out Jamie was trying to comfort Elizabeth and it didn't look like Jamie could have done anything more to fix the situation.
"I tried to say I didn't want to go out on that boat," Elizabeth noted. "I said it. But it was all just miscommunication, I guess. Just wrong situation and wrong thing said. I don't know."
When asked how she and Jamie recovered from such intense moments -- considering this wasn't their first argument on the show -- Elizabeth replied, "I don't think you have a choice. You are married, and that's what marriage is."

"And I'm sure people are in marriages now where they're four, five, 10, 15, 20 years deep and they still have days like that and you just have to move through them because there's a bigger picture at the end of the day."
Matt let out a laugh and then continued, "But I think Beth means well. I don't think there's any malice or bad intentions behind her behavior. Just hopefully Jamie is able to deal with it in a positive way."
But Matt admitted he probably wouldn't have been able to put up with his wife, Amber Bowles, had she acted in the same manner.
"It doesn't really resonate well with me, that over-the-top, dramatic behavior," Matt said.
"What do you mean over the top?!" Elizabeth playfully countered.
"I mean," Matt laughed, "you're laid-back and chill too."
