'Married at First Sight' stars: Chris Williams and Paige Banks will probably remain entangled even after Decision Day!
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 05/12/2021
Married at First Sight star Paige Banks should have protected her heart and body in her tumultuous marriage to Chris Williams and will probably stay wrapped up in the relationship after Decision Day, according to a handful of cast members from seasons past.
In the process of making predictions and sizing up Married at First Sight's Season 12 couples -- who will face Decision Day on the upcoming May 12 episode on Lifetime -- Woody and Miles expressed their frustration over Paige repeatedly falling under Chris' spell.
"I have yet to see in real life how Paige really feels about it all," Woody lamented.
When Chris and Paige traveled to Las Vegas for their honeymoon, Chris appeared to discover his ex-fiancee Mercedes Myrick -- whom he had been engaged to just three months prior to marrying a stranger on the show -- was pregnant with his child.
Chris confessed to Paige that he still loved his ex and went on to threaten divorce multiple times, only to draw Paige back in with flirtatious comments.
"I know for a fact she really and truly wanted to say, 'F-ck you, Chris, and your baby mama, and honestly f-ck your life. Because at this point, I had a bad [experience]. I signed on to be happily married and see butterflies and all that good sh-t, and see the whistles and the wind blowing in my hair, and I am getting dog sh-t,'" Woody exclaimed.
"I hate to say it like that," he continued, "but I really want her to say, 'Bro, this sh-t was whack! This is whack to me and I didn't sign up for this!'"
Miles suggested Paige had fallen victim to Chris' manipulation and sweet-talking and failed to stand her ground and recognize her worth.
"She didn't set clear boundaries. She didn't really protect her heart and she didn't protect her body," Miles said.
"And I think because of that, we are confused. We don't understand why she would do such things [and take him back], and hopefully she regains sight of self going into Decision Day."

Woody said while Paige clearly didn't end up in a happy and fulfilling relationship, she hopefully learned something about herself.
"What [Paige] learned is what you should not accept," Woody noted.
Karen then chimed in and called Chris and Paige's relationship "a toxic situation."
"I think Paige, as good-intentioned as she entered [the process], I think that she found herself in a very vulnerable position, and adding Chris to that vulnerability with everything that he brought into that relationship, has now put them both in two unhealthy places," Karen explained.
Elizabeth shouted, "I just want to shake [Paige] and say, 'You do not deserve this! You are so much better than this! Please, stop drinking his Koolaid!'"
Chris finally broke up with Paige -- who had forgiven her husband multiple times and put so much effort into their marriage -- after claiming she wasn't a good communicator because she had missed a few of his phone calls.
After their breakup, Chris complained to Married at First Sight expert Pastor Calvin Roberson that Paige doesn't have an attractive face and the experts should have matched him with a beautiful Atlanta queen.
Although Chris and Paige ended their relationship right before their one-month anniversary, a preview of the upcoming episode shows Chris and Paige reuniting with each other and Married at First Sightexperts Pastor Calvin Roberson, Dr. Pepper Schwartz and Dr. Viviana Coles on Decision Day.
Amani also said she believes Paige and Chris will "continue messing around" because they never had "a consistent go through."
"I think they're going to want to try to give it a full shot, but I don't think that it's going to be a healthy relationship," Amani explained.
Woody, however, predicted Paige and Chris will choose to stay married on Decision Day and leave viewers with dropped jaws and big question marks in their minds.
"I think in typical Chris fashion, he's going to get flustered. I think he's going to say 'yes' out of frustration and then they leave and it falls apart the next day," Jamie suggested, piggybacking Woody's opinion.
But Elizabeth guessed Paige and Chris will say "no" to staying married and then continue their "cycle" or "dance," which will result in "somebody getting really, really hurt."
