Season 2 of A&E’s completley ridiculous “social experiment” reality series “Married at First Sight” ended Tuesday night with two of its arranged couples deciding to give their fledgling marriages a chance, while one couple — Davina Kullar and Sean Varricchio — opted to divorce after just six weeks together.
The newlyweds, who were complete strangers prior to getting hitched, started out with an immediate physical chemistry when they first met at the altar and didn’t have the screaming fights from other featured couples.
But things nevertheless quickly started heading south on their honeymoon as they failed to develop an emotional or physical intimacy (they were the only couple in the experiment to never have sex during their six-week marriage).
In separate interviews — the two have not spoken since the break-up outside of filming a six-month reunion special airing June 16 and 23 at 9 p.m. on A&E — Kullar, 34, and Varricchio, 35, spoke exclusively to The Post about why things didn’t work out.
“I don’t think the real Sean, the genuine Sean ever really showed up. I can’t say that I really know who I was married to,” Kullar says. “I didn’t have a connection at all with him.”
“Things were tense,” Varricchio admits. “I was constantly walking on eggshells, where it definitely became difficult to see how we could grow a relationship.”
Kullar said that watching the show has been “cathartic,” though her ex said it’s been to painful to relive those memories. Both told the newspaper that they’re hoping to marry again in the future.
“I think I’ll give it the regular vetting process this time around, though,” Kullar said.
