Mindy, a 34-year-old figure skating coach from Frederick, MD, was selected to marry Zach, a 32-year-old fitness professional from St. Mary's, GA, on Married at First Sight's tenth season, which just premiered January 1 on Lifetime.
Mindy and Zach's wedding was not shown on the premiere episode, but both individuals appeared ready, excited and willing to blindly take the plunge after exhausting other dating options in Washington, D.C.
While a lack of physical attraction has broken up many couples in the past on Married at First Sight, Mindy told the U.K.'s Daily Mail she wasn't worried about that.
"Some of my best relationships have been with men I wasn't attracted to initially," said Mindy, who will catch a glimpse of her groom for the first time when she walks down the aisle in a future Married at First Sight episode.
"For me, attraction is built over time and physicality is only a small percentage of that."
Mindy revealed, however, she was in fact attracted to Zach when she first laid eyes on him during their wedding ceremony.
Mindy said her first thought upon seeing her future husband at the altar was "holy handsomeness." She was even reportedly anticipating a kiss after saying, "I do."
But Mindy's expectations ended there, as she hoped their chemistry and intimacy would build naturally and organically.
"As far as physical intimacy is concerned, I didn't put any hard rules in place like 'you can't sleep with him for a week,' because I thought that could hinder the natural progression of our relationship," Mindy explained.
