Brandon Reid’s marriage to Taylor Dunklin in Lifetime’s Married at First Sight Season 10 was an enigma for many viewers. Brandon Reid first gave his wife the silent treatment on his honeymoon in Panama, and nothing seemed to get better from there. From Taylor’s controversial story on Instagram to Brandon’s ongoing discussions with the producers of Lifetime, nothing seemed to go well for the couple.
In an exclusive preview of the upcoming April 15 episode of Married at First Sight from In Touch Weekly, Brandon and Taylor Dunklin’s rocky marriage seems to become even more rocker on Decision Day. After eight weeks of marriage, each couple must decide whether they want to divorce or stay married. But Brandon may not even show up at all.
Married at First Sight: Taylor Dunklin And Brandon Reid Struggled With Their Marriage From The Very Beginning
To some fans, Taylor Dunklin and Brandon seemed mismatched in many ways from the start.
Brandon, a beer sales rep, was unhappy with researcher Taylor Dunklin’s love for Instagram. Meanwhile, Brandon’s mood and temperament (especially with the Lifetime production crew) often seemed to upset his wife. After Taylor Dunklin published an article on Instagram in which he claimed to be “single” and looking for a man, Brandon moved out of the couple’s apartment.
But it wasn’t the worst of the married couple’s problems at First Sight. During a couple’s retreat just before Decision Day, Brandon Reid had yet another breakdown with the producers and staff at Lifetime. He cursed two producers and seems to have essentially abandoned the show after the confrontation.
Married at First Sight: Taylor Dunklin Sits Down With The ‘MAFS’ Experts To Discuss Her Tumultuous Marriage
In In Touch Weekly sneak peek, Taylor Dunklin sits down with the three Married at First Sight experts – Dr. Pepper Schwartz, Dr. Viviana Coles and Pastor Cal Roberson – to discuss her marriage to Brandon.
“It’s no secret to us that Brandon has had a hard time with the experiment and, in fact, seems to have stopped after the retreat. Am I right?” Dr. Pepper asks an already emotional Taylor. (Taylor Dunklin agrees that this is a fair assessment.) “Have you seen him since?” asks the matchmaker.
Taylor admits to spending time with Brandon Reid off camera, which sometimes seems to confuse her about his intentions. “Yes, I’ve seen him since then. Even if he was arguing with the production, we always see each other off-camera,” she tells the experts in the preview clip.
Pastor Cal provisionally addresses the issue of Brandon’s absence on this crucial day. “I know he’s here alone right now”. What do you think? What if he doesn’t show up?” he asks.
Taylor Dunklin starts crying as she confesses, “You know, you’re just feeling anxious. You never know what’s gonna happen to you.”
