During the February 1 episode of Married at First Sight: Afterparty, Shaquille watched back a Season 16 clip of Kirsten opening up to him during their honeymoon in Lucea, Jamaica.
"You're definitely growing on me," Kirsten shares in the clip.
"Growing? What?!" Shaquille asks in surprise.
"Most women say this about their husbands," Kirsten says.
"What? You weren't attracted to me at first?" Shaquille questions.
"At first, I wasn't really attracted to you, to your bald head," Kirsten admits. "But once I continued to spend time with you, I definitely feel a little bit more attracted to you."
Afterparty host Keshia Knight Pulliam told Shaquille that she was beginning to see "a little chemistry" between the spouses in that footage.
"That was your moment to give her a kiss on the forehead!" Keshia exclaimed.
Shaquille's MAFS co-star Gina Micheletti, who also appeared on the Afterparty special as a guest, agreed that Kirsten seemed ready to make out with Shaquille in that moment.
"It's a thing with Kirsten to where it's like you're telling me you're not attracted to me and then you tell me you don't want to touch me right now, like, behind the scenes -- you don't want to touch me," Shaquille explained.

"But then it's like when we get in front of the cameras, [she changes]."
When Shaquille saw his bride for the first time, he thought she was "beautiful" and definitely his "type," but Kirsten complained to the cameras about how her husband already had two strikes against him -- a bald head she didn't like and the fact he's younger than her in age.
But Kirsten quickly discovered they had important things in common, such as the value they put on family, religion and education.
"He has pretty teeth and his personality definitely outweighs his exterior look," Kirsten conceded.
Kirsten and Shaquille continued getting to know each other better after their wedding, and they both agreed it was obvious why the experts had matched them -- and that the experts had done a good job in doing so.
