'Married at First Sight' star Lindsey claims Alyssa is "fake" and not ready for marriage

Married at First Sight star Lindsey has claimed her fellow bride, Alyssa, was "fake" and not ready for marriage when they filmed Season 14 of the Lifetime series together.
On Married at First Sight'spremiere Wednesday night, viewers watched the new Season 14 brides meet each other for the first time at a bar, and it was apparent Lindsey and Alyssa didn't exactly hit it off.
Lindsey appeared to rub Alyssa the wrong way when she said she wouldn't want to marry a man with a dog. Lindsey joked she would "big-foot" her husband's dog because she doesn't like animals, and rescuing dogs and cats is apparently Alyssa's main passion in life.
"I feel like I'm the complete opposite of her, like, I'm very quiet and I don't know if I see me and her being best friends," Alyssa noted at the time.
And Alyssa certainly kept her distance from Lindsey at the five brides' subsequent bachelorette party.
Footage showed Alyssa sitting in a booth with several of her closest friends, declining drinks and expressing disinterest -- and maybe even disgust -- in the wild party going on around her.
"Like you saw there [in that clip], she was sitting alone in the dark in the corner for most of the time. She wasn't engaging, so I just thought, 'Let her come to us when she's ready,'" Lindsey explained.
It turns out Alyssa allegedly blocked Lindsey on social media after the bachelorette party because she had heard Lindsey was talking trash about her.
On Married at First Sight's premiere, Lindsey, appearing to be a bit tipsy, told the cameras, "I love 95 percent of the brides I met. I think they're badass and we're going to have friendships for life."
"Jasmina f-cking looks like Naomi Campbell. She's just gorgeous. Noi is your wild card. Katina, love it -- she knows what she wants! There's a fifth bride, right?" she joked.
"What's her name? I mean, really, she's been missing."
But Lindsey told Keshia that she believes she still treats people with respect, regardless of whether she likes them or not.
"I read your energy right when I meet you, and if you're not somebody that I'm for, I'm still going to respect you and be kind to you because I want you to have the very best in life," Lindsey claimed.
"Each person is so unique and beautiful and brings something. You may not come to my Christmas party, but you're a good person!"
Lindsey's wedding to Mark Maher was shown on the latest Married at First Sight episode of Season 14, but Alyssa has yet to meet and marry her match, Chris, on the show.
The other three couples who will marry this season are Jasmina and Michael, Katina and Olajuwon, and Noi and Steve.
