Jessica Studer and Austin Hurd immediately got along well on Lifetime’s Married at First Sight Season 10. Although both Austin and Jessica are happy to have been paired, Austin is still not ready to reciprocate Jessica’s profession of love.
In a preview of the April 1 episode of Married at First Sight, “Fight or Flight,” from PopCulture.com, Jessica tells her casting partners that she is heartbroken and that her husband still won’t say the three little words.
Married at First Sight: Meka Jones grills Jessica Studer about her feelings for Austin Hurd
In the April 1 episode, couples married to First Sight (with the exception of Zach Justice and Mindy Shiben, who have already broken up) leave for a final romantic getaway just before they have to face the music on Decision Day.
At dinner Meka Jones (Michael Watson’s wife) jokes with Jessica, as if to say “I love you” casually at the table. “Was the L-word about to come out?” he asks his casting partner.
Derek Sherman, Katie Conrad’s husband, joins in on the good-natured jokes. “Was the “L” word coming out for you?” he asks Meka. “No,” he says quietly, without a hint of a smile.
Jessica Studer confesses how she feels about her husband. “I told Austin I love him,” she admits, clearly a little embarrassed.
The other married couples at first glance explode in applause and screams. “Oh, how cute!” Meka exclaims. “You’re all so cute,” Derek agrees.

Then Meka wants to know who said the three little words first. “Did you win the bet?” he asks Jessica, referring to Jessica’s “bet” with Austin that she would proclaim her love first. “No, I didn’t win the bet!” Jessica confessed. “Did he say it?” Meka wonders. “No!” Jessica says, obviously upset, as Austin blushes by her side.
In the preview, Jessica tells the producers of Married at First Sight that she was surprised that Austin didn’t say “I love you” before she did.
“I said it, but she didn’t”, Jessica complains, making it clear: “There was no real money on the bet, it was just me telling Austin one night that I bet you’ll be the first to say it, and apparently she didn’t. I knew I wanted to say it, so I said it.”
