'Married at First Sight' star Krysten shares new details about her sister's conversation with Mitch
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 10/05/2022
Married at First Sight star Krysten has revealed what her sister Rachel told her about the videochat conversation in which Mitch had asked Rachel for advice on how to dress Krysten down.
On the latest episode of Married at First Sight's fifteenth season, Mitch videochatted with Rachel and asked how he could gently and politely ask Krysten to wear less makeup and more casual clothes because he was most attracted to his wife in her natural, effortless state.
Mitch admitted he had anticipated the experts matching him with a surfer girl or hippie, and so he seemed a bit disappointed. When Krysten found this news out, she was hurt and livid.
During the September 28 broadcast of Married at First Sight: Afterparty, Krysten watched back a Season 15 clip of Mitch and Rachel talking.
"I feel strongly about this topic," Rachel tells Mitch in the footage.
"The makeup isn't necessarily for you... It could inadvertently come across as, like, 'Oh yeah, I know we initially spoke about me not being attracted to you, but how about you have a different haircut and don't wear makeup now?'"
Afterparty host Keshia Knight Pulliam said, "Did [Mitch] really think your sister wasn't going to tell you?!"
"Exactly!" Krysten replied. "Like, what?!"
When asked how that conversation went, Krysten shared, "To be honest with you, she's saying that the conversation initially is all about Mitch, and she said she's getting a little bit of a narcissistic vibe from him."
"And then you have to ask my sister how to control my appearance?" Krysten vented. "I saw red. I was silent on the other end of the phone."
Krysten said she was frustrated because she and Mitch had already talked about this.
"We've moved forward!" Krysten exclaimed. "We're actually in a good place and we might make it!"

Keshia suggested that it wasn't okay for Krysten's appearance to keep coming up in conversation.
Married at First Sight star Miguel Santiago joined Krysten on Afterparty, and he was asked what type of response he'd get from his wife Lindy Elloway if he asked her to change how she dresses and does her hair and makeup.
"Just play back that insurance conversation. That's how it'll go," Miguel said with a laugh, referring to how Lindy had cursed and yelled at him for not wanting to add her to his medical insurance at work.
Krysten expressed on Married at First Sight's latest episode how Mitch's chat with Rachel was "rude" and "hurtful."
And when the cast gathered for a pool party, Krysten suggested that Mitch was controlling, and she announced how she probably wouldn't want to stay with a man who's "unsure" about her.
Krysten wasn't convinced that she's the woman Mitch wants.
Mitch insisted he was attracted to Krysten and thought she's beautiful, but Krysten said she felt really embarrassed. She also couldn't believe Mitch had used his opportunity to talk to Rachel so poorly.
"If you talk things through, I think that you'll find there's enough attraction," Dr. Pepper Schwartz told the couple at the pool party.
But Krysten interrupted the MAFS expert and shared, "I really, really respect you guys. I do. I'm a huge advocate of the experience, but I am not going to accept he is attracted to me 'enough.'"
Krysten said she was "tired" of giving Mitch credit for tiny amounts of progress here or there.
"He has made me be so confused about myself, and I came in a full woman -- a confident woman, who was so excited about life and to be a part of this... experience. I want somebody who is excited that I walked into the room. And I want somebody who thinks I am beautiful with a little bit of makeup on. And I'm done. I'm done," Krysten lamented.
Krysten demanded an apology from Mitch, and Mitch said this outburst was a blindside to him.
"Oh my God, is this blindsiding to anybody?!" Krysten shouted out to the cast, who shook their heads "no."
Married at First Sight stars Alexis and Justin joked about how Mitch wanted a woman who walks around barefoot and has dirty feet.
Mitch told the cameras that he was not trying to force his will on Krysten or change her. Mitch said he was trying to accept the person Krysten is and so this turn of events was "regrettable" for him.
