'Married at First Sight' star Woody Randall on his single days: If I didn't care anymore I would just move on

Married at First Sight star Woody Randall is opening up about his single days and how he would move on from one woman to the next if he stopped caring.
Woody, a 30-year-old teacher and coach from New Orleans, LA, and Amani, a 29-year-old non-profit worker who was raised in Chicago, IL, were matched by Married at First Sight experts Pastor Calvin Roberson, Dr. Viviana Coles and Dr. Pepper Schwartz to wed on Season 11 of the series.
During the September 9 episode of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered, Woody watched back a Season 11 clip in which one of his female friends told Amani at the couple's housewarming party it was strange to see Woody go from being "single" and "free" to married.
Woody's friend admitted to Amani she wasn't sure whether Woody was truly ready to settle down, but Amani expressed how everything was going well up to that point. Woody's friend was therefore led to believe Woody might have found his perfect match.
On Unfiltered, host Jamie Otis -- who starred on Season 1 of Married at First Sight -- asked Woody how it felt to prove his friends wrong, at least up to this point in the experiment.
"One, I just think that it's funny that I always have to play this role of, like, proving people wrong," Woody shared.
"But at the same time, it's just, like, a nice seat to also sit in. People get to watch my life at the same time now. I just think it's nice to be happy and be married right now and have what I absolutely wanted and what I signed on for."
"So the simple fact [my friends] didn't think that could happen and now it is happening, I'm happy that it's a big slap in their damn face," Woody joked.
Woody was joined by his Married at First Sight co-stars Henry Rodriguez and Miles Williams, and both men cracked up with laugher at Woody's joke.
Out of apparent curiosity, Jamie asked Woody what he was like when he was single and out partying all the time.
"Single Woody was living his best, happy life," Woody admitted, before explaining how he treated women.

"I will just be honest -- I wasn't disrespectful in any way. I would just say that if I didn't care anymore, I would politely move on."
Given Miles is Woody's best friend, Jamie asked him if Woody was telling the truth.
"Yeah, completely," Miles insisted.
"Single Woody and single Miles were doing the same thing together. So I think it's unfair that just because he's a little bit the life of the party that he gets the brunt of this negativity, you know?"
Jamie pointed out it was nice how Miles had Woody's back, and Miles agreed, "Yeah, it's just not fair. Single Woody and single Miles are very similar and we're both happily married now, and I think that that's pretty nice."
When Woody first told his family and friends he'd be getting married at first sight, Woody's pals just weren't buying that "the wild boy" was ready to settle down and be a husband because he's always in search "of a good time."
In a July episode of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered, Woody said he couldn't wait "to prove everybody wrong" by being a loyal and good husband despite his old partying and dating habits.
Woody and Amani's relationship has only been progressing and getting stronger on the series, and Woody told his wife in the latest episode that he loved her.
"Do I love you?" Woody asked while coloring with Amani in their apartment. "I definitely have love for you. I can say that... I love my wife. So yeah, there you go. I do love your ass. I've got love for you."
Amani searched for clarification by asking, "So you love me or you've got love for me?"
"I love you and I've got love for you. There you go," Woody replied.
Amani giggled with joy, and Woody added, "I do feel like I love my wife, man. I love the person that you are, which is crazy to say because I didn't know you weeks ago. But I am ready to spill all my beans."
Amani, however, told her husband, "I can't say that I'm, like, in love with you. I think that I definitely like you and I feel myself growing towards being in love with you."
Amani admitted she was "stopping" herself from falling because she was scared after getting hurt in past relationships.
Woody felt the need to remind Amani that he's different from men who had wronged her in her past, and he hoped Amani would give him a clean slate and not to bring the issues of prior relationships into their marriage.
"It sucks. It sucks. I'll leave it at that," Woody said.
Amani later surprised Woody with a beautiful dinner to show how much she liked and appreciated him, and Woody gushed how he was "definitely going to keep" his wife.
