Despite being matched by the experts in Married at First Sight Season 15, it was obvious to most watchers that Miguel Santiago and Lindy Elloway were not a good match. Their chemistry in scenes was off, including their communication styles and the type of validation they wanted from their partner.

Many Married at First Sight fans even accused Miguel Santiago of gaslighting Lindy Elloway in scenes. Viewers have said, over the last few seasons specifically, how the MAFS matches don’t seem as authentic now. Based on what Miguel recently had to say, it looks like there was a big reason for that.

According to recent tea from Miguel Santiago, he said that he and Lindy Elloway were unhappy with how their storyline was being portrayed. So, they made the decision to tweak their behavior onscreen. This is something that Married at First Sight fans have called out for some time, so it’s interesting to hear someone like Miguel confirm it.

Miguel Santiago also said that things were rocky between him and Lindy Elloway behind the scenes. Of course, if they were already intentionally tweaking their behavior in order to put forth a certain narrative, it’s no wonder that it all fell apart in the end.

As Married at First Sight fans saw, an attempt by them to shift the narrative clearly did not work.

Of course, with couples more concerned about how they will appear in scenes, it’s no wonder the marriage success rate continues to plummet season after season.
