Married at First Sight season 17, couple Becca and Austin have had some friction over their intimacy, and a mid-season sneak peek depicts whether they have consummated their marriage. Becca and Austin seem to be the couple with the most chemistry this season. Married at First Sight season 17 started out with five couples. However, Michael was left at the altar by his bride, and Orion asked for a divorce from Lauren right after the honeymoon. That has left Becca and Austin, Emily and Brennan, and Clare and Cameron as the remaining couples.
Becca and Austin have proven that they have very similar quirky senses of humor, and that has brought them closer than the other couples. Becca has let Austin know how much she needs affirmation in a relationship, and Austin has strived to provide that for her. Austin has also been accepting and supportive of Becca’s health conditions and medical issues, which has served to help their bond and Becca’s trust. However, while there have been a lot of positive moments for the couple, there are some glaring issues, including their different stances on sex.
Becca & Austin Have Had Several Struggles
Becca and Austin may seem like the most compatible couple from the outside, but they have been dealing with deep-rooted issues. First, their problem was that they did not want to talk about the hard stuff and preferred to skate by getting to know each other on the surface. When they did finally talk about religion, Agnostic Becca and super Catholic Austin hit issues accepting each other’s beliefs. The other big hurdle for the pair has been Becca’s desire to have sex like yesterday and Austin’s hesitation and desire to take things slower.
The Journey So Far Preview Revealed A Lot About Becca & Austin
During the mid-season discussion panel episode of Married at First Sight season 17, called “The Journey So Far,” a preview clip was shown of what’s to come for Becca and Austin. The scene showed Austin directing a blindfolded Becca around an obstacle course. After an obstacle is completed, the leader has to reveal something intimate about themselves. The first thing Austin revealed to Becca was, “I really like it when you talk dirty.” The second was that Becca has “great t**s.”
The discussion panel members were taken aback by Austin’s confessions since he has been the one to curb Becca’s enthusiasm to jump into bed. The Married at First Sight aficionados also noted that Becca and Austin likely already had sex in that sneak peek because Austin already knew what he liked and wanted more of. Becca and Austin may have been the first couple to consummate their marriage if the blindfolded exercise is any indication of their progression. This season has had a lack of intimacy between the couples in general, so Becca and Austin seem like they are going to spice things up.
Married at First Sight airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST.
