Taylor Dunklin and Brandon Reed, one of five couples featuring on Season 10 of Lifetime’s hit experimental reality series Married at First Sight, have had a rocky road to their “happily ever after” since the two first tied the knot on the show. Brandon isn’t a fan of being filmed nonstop, and his aggression toward the camera crew (as well as last week’s meltdown on the bus) has put a strain on his relationship with Taylor.
With their marital issues so front-and-center on recent episodes of the show, fans might be wondering if the two were able to work through their problems and make things work, or if they have gone their separate ways.
So, are Taylor and Brandon still together today? Although it’s still a bit too soon to predict with much certainty, we’ve got some thoughts on what might go down between the two. Read on for our MAFS predictions on Taylor and Brandon. Warning: some Married at First Sight spoilers ahead! Turn back now if you’re not caught up and don’t want anything ruined for you!
Taylor & Brandon Have Had a Few Big Arguments Already
Taylor and Brandon had a bumpy start to their marriage, which has included a few relatively big arguments and a particularly aggressive outburst by Brandon during last week’s episode. Fans will recall Brandon’s reaction to being followed onto the elevator by the camera crew while they were still in Panama for the honeymoon … not only did Brandon shove his hand in front of the camera and refuse to let the crew follow him, after Taylor confronted him about his rudeness, he got angry, stomped out of the hotel and started swearing at everybody on the bus as they headed to the airport.
“There are some things that he says to production that I don’t agree with, and he’s kind of abrasive and aggressive,” Taylor said during last week’s episode. Taylor also noted that Brandon left all of his things in the hotel room, including his wedding ring and passport, forcing her to pack his bag for him. Once he boarded the bus to the airport, she asked him to calm down, and he responded “I’m gonna calm down when I’m in Washington. F–k y’all.” He also accused her of not wanting to be married to him and said “f–k you” to his wife.
Aside from the questionable issues with the camera crew, Brandon has also said in the past that he doesn’t like how much Taylor is on social media. The two were also clearly uncomfortable during their first few nights together, and Brandon definitely has an attitude in the morning; he got aggravated when she woke him up and he left the hotel room during one of their first mornings together in Panama, which turned into a bigger argument later on in the day.
We Don’t Believe They Will Stay Together, Based on Their Relationship Now
Although it’s clear that both reality stars are hoping to make things work with one another, we don’t believe they will last, based off their interactions so far on the show. Brandon isn’t open or patient enough to be with Taylor, and we don’t think Taylor is going to want to put up with someone who is rude and crabby in the morning, doesn’t know how to properly handle his temper, and pushes her away and shuts down the moment he gets upset about something. Unless these two make a serious change over the next six episodes, we don’t think they will stay together on Decision Day.
What do you think? Do you agree with us and believe they will call it quits, or do you think Taylor and Brandon will be able to work through their issues and figure things out by Decision Day? Take our poll below!
