Taylor Dunklin and Brandon Reid’s marriage went swiftly downhill on Lifetime’s Married in First Sight Season 10. While 32-year-old Brandon seemed first beaten with his 27-year-old wife Taylor Dunklin, their honeymoon in Panama turned sour when it became clear that Brandon was struggling with the constant recording schedule.
Brandon gave Taylor Dunklin the silent treatment for a whole day at the beginning of the trip. Later, the beer vendor turned on Life producers and cursed them out before returning to Washington, D.C. The Married at First Sight groom even refused to move in with his wife in the beginning when they returned to their town.
On February 19 episode of Married at First Sight, “House is where your Husband is,” Taylor Dunklin and Brandon reconciled for the time being. But when Taylor Dunklin told her friends what had happened to her new husband, they weren’t happy to hear that Brandon wasn’t as sweet as he seemed.
Married at First Sight: Taylor Dunklin told her friends she was comfortable with Brandon Reid at first
Taylor Dunklin sat down with two of her friends in a restaurant to share all the details of her tumultuous marriage so far.
At first, the Married at First Sight star explained, she was actually happy with Brandon Reid. She made a joke that, as she walked down the aisle, she was relieved by his looks. “When I got out, I was like, “Whew, Lord, he’s not ugly,” she said.
Taylor Dunklin also told her friends that Brandon Reid was “respectful” about her space and didn’t get intrusive with her, so she felt comfortable sleeping in the same bed with him, even though they were strangers. “He was very respectful, so that made me more comfortable,” she said.
Taylor, however, told her friends that things quickly got worse when she began to see Brandon’s true colors on their honeymoon in Panama.
“One day we woke up in the morning, and he was snoring, right?” she explained. The Married at First Sight star thought it was funny, so she decided to “diary him” before he woke up. She freaked out on camera and started whispering.
Brandon Reid apparently didn’t think it was that funny. “This guy wakes up in the middle of the diary fight, JUMPS out of bed,” Taylor said, explaining that he then gave her the silent treatment for a whole day of their first trip together.
“He literally says nothing to me… zero response,” she said. “He literally ignored me all day.”
