During Wednesday night's episode ofMarried at First Sight: Unfiltered, Paige, Virginia and theirMarried at First Sight co-star Briana Miles watched back a Season 12 clip of the entire cast gathering for dinner during their honeymoon in Las Vegas.
"It's a lot!" Virginia admitted. "We were completely late to that sitdown. We had a prior engagement, so we really came in and had no idea anything was happening."
"I think from me and Erik's perspective, we wanted them to feel supported and both really didn't know what to say. Obviously we just kept saying the wrong things that weren't helping the situation -- at all."

Both Paige and Briana cracked up with laughter, and then Virginia continued, "So definitely could've handled that situation better, on both of our parts."
Jamie pointed out how she probably would have acted awkward as well in that same situation and "hindsight is always 20/20."
Paige said on Virginia's behalf, "You know, I feel like everybody was probably thinking similar sentiments. There's just always a time and place, so those comments, I was just like, 'Oh my, like I haven't even asked him that at that point."
Virginia covered her face in embarrassment and Paige added, "We haven't even had that kind of dialogue [yet].
"I don't think her intentions were bad, nor Erik," Paige clarified, "but I could feel Chris's energy, and it was a lot."
When asked to reveal the vibes during the room during that conversation, Briana laughed and said, "It was very awkward, to be honest."
"But like Virginia said, she was trying to make light of the conversation and it ended up going sour. But it's like, you don't know what to say."
Tension only escalated from that point on between Chris and Virginia and Erik.
Virginia called Chris "arrogant" during an ATV outing and then Chris called Virginia "a drunk," to which Virginia replied, "Okay, I like to drink." Chris said if Virginia was going to throw shots, he'd throw shots back at her.
After watching Virginia and Clara talk to Paige about Chris' pregnant ex, Chris flipped out on the bus ride back to the hotel.
Virginia told Chris that he was being "disrespectful as f-ck to [her]," which made Chris yell back, "I don't give a f-ck about you!"
Chris and Virginia started to scream over each other to the point where Paige had to hold Chris' arms down and tell him that she had enough. Paige apologized to Erik and Virginia and begged them to just leave her husband alone.
During a subsequent group dinner for the cast members, Chris apologized to everyone for his outburst earlier that day, but Virginia and Erik -- who showed up to the dinner later again -- missed the apology.
"I can't allow you to ever talk to her like that again," Erik told Chris of Virginia. "From now on, we can go our separate ways or whatever you want to do, but if you need to say anything to her, you can go through me. So we'll just [be] man to man."
Erik told Chris that he was borderline "scaring people," but Chris reminded Erik how he had asked the couple to respect his privacy and then Virginia made "inappropriate" jokes at his expense in front of the whole group.
"Today, I was fed up and tired of that bullsh-t," Chris said.
Erik and Virginia decided to leave the table, but Chris insisted he wasn't finished talking yet. As the bickering continued, Married at First Sight star Vincent Morales physically pushed his buddy Chris out of the room so things wouldn't get any worse.
"Unf-cking believable," Erik murmured, waving goodbye to everyone as he and Virginia left the dinner.
Paige later told Briana that she understood why Chris had been so defensive, and Chris revealed he had lost all respect for Erik, who had "crossed [his] boundary line."
Paige decided to continue her relationship with Chris despite an extremely rocky first week of marriage, including a shocking revelation from Chris that he still loved his ex-fiancee and briefly considered getting back together with her.
