David Norton on "Married At First Sight: Second Chances"

‘Married at First Sight: Second Chances’: Melika Can’t Name What She Likes About David

UPDATED: Recap season finale and David’s decision.   Then there’s the reaction to David…ugly!

“Married at First Sight: Second Chances” presented David Norton and Vanessa Nelson’s top four in the episode, “The Hot Seat and the Cold Truth”. David took his four ladies out on a double date with his besties. Vanessa chose to have her men get together with her sister Kenya and her friend Danielle.

David’s still hanging in there with Isabella and Melika, two women who his best friends wondered about. Isabella got diarrhea of the mouth about her ex-boyfriend on the date. She ended by saying she “thinks” she’s still up for a serious relationship with David. Say what? David suffered through the discussion, but brightened when he thought there was hope. His friends warned him to be careful. That is still leaving aside the issue of her wanting to go abroad for a year and hold off having a family for 5-6 years.

The woman who moves the meter “Married at First Sight: Second Chances” is Melika and her date with David’s friends was almost more awkward than Isabella’s. Her long pause before being able to name one thing she likes best about David was a mirror image of how David’s ex-wife acted during his season on MAFS. Producers got the clip of sad David watching his wife look at notes and still be unable to say what she liked.

Melika did the same during a pause that seemed like hours. David actually broke the silence by asking: “Do you like me?”. When she got asked what his best quality is, she paused again, but finally croaked out something: “He’s just like very nice and genuine, too nice and too genuine. I never met anyone so open and honest.” She then went into the Maya return and she praised him for giving her a chance.

David was relieved, thanking her for the compliment and then went off on some tangent about not trusting first impressions any longer and trusting this process. Huh? But the last bit of discussion was the saddest, in our opinion. Asked what would happen if David chose her, Melika said, again, hesitantly “I mean, I definitely could see a future with you.” David thought he hit the jackpot.

Here’s the question: Why does David stand for Melika’s lack of enthusiasm? He’s got Salem and Tara being open about how they feel, yet seems like without Melika’s approval he’s miserable. He takes crumbs from her – mere crumbs. We fear that Tara or Salem are going to bite the dust next and David will be left with Isabella and Melika. Thoughts?

  1. David, I get what you might see in Melika but seriously, David. Can’t you see the blonde is crazy for you? No high maintenance, no putting herself before you. Melika is high maintenance. But, by now you are already married so comments don’t count. Best to you.

  2. David, you always talk about how they make you feel….. sorry, but they can always make you feel different later….marriage isn’t about making anyone’s day by making them feel good about themselves…. you still don’t get it… You sent home girls that would have been better for you but hey, you are so star struck by NOTHING.

  3. It’s legit embarrassing how David is fondling over two women who don’t care about him. Salem and Tara are the only ones who seem to care. I hope Tara wins and that the other two kick rocks

  4. I love watching “Married At First: Second Chance”, but I’m starting to think “David”, has no balls. Can’t he see Melika is making an ass of him. I don’t think he knows what he wants. He doesn’t listen to the advice given to him. I think that if he brings back Melika, all the other LADIES should kick him to the curve because he is not being fair to them. Melika reminds me of his first wife. I was so impressed with her I can remember her name. So I say to David Norton get your balls on the right track.

  5. This is so sad!!! David you need therapy before a relationship, you are drawn to women who treat you like crap. It feels more “real” to you only because you lack self worth! You lose interest when there is not a chase but marriage is not about a chase it is about a partnership. Can you not see that you are basing your choices on physical attraction and not who would actually make a good wife? Look at what you have to offer and look for the same. You are not hot and edgy, you are considerate and kind of dorky but also a people person.. every girl who was similar to you, you blow off. what a shame! If you pick Mileka or Isabella it will not last, it’s so painfully obvious it worries me that you can’t see it.

  6. I’m really hoping that David picked Tara. She is the most mature and prettiest girl there. Malika is playing him for a complete fool and I hope it’s editing that makes it look like he is more seriously infatuated with her than the others. She really bothers me because she acts like she can’t stand him. He deserves better.

  7. Oh Dear Lord, David! Melisa is bland, boring and has such an annoying voice. She’s playing you for a fool. All the other women tried to warn you about what she has been saying. I think Tara is such an amazing person and would be a great wife for you. I sure hope you were able to go back and watch all the episodes and see what kind of person Melika is.

  8. David certainly makes poor choices. He should take his mother’s advice. Melika ALWAYS looks like she just sucked on a lemon. She never smiles, always looks miserable. Dr. Pepper suggested that the more someone pushes David away the more he wants them, she certainly is right. Melika’s parents refused to even meet David and when he told her he loved her she had that lemon-sucking face on. David, mother knows best.

  9. David, You are such a nice guy. I think you are drawn to dark haired women, but Melika is NOT the woman for you. Listen to your Mom, she knows you. I can’t believe you are not listening to the “experts” either. Melika’s personality reminds me of a “dead fish”. I think you will be so unhappy if you choose Melika over Tara. She will make your life miserable.

  10. I am starting to believe that David is drawn to women who treat him poorly and don’t care about him. He is so use to rejection that he chooses women that reject him. Open your eyes David to Tara as she will love you and make a wonderful wife.

  11. You know what I would like about David the most? The ability to get the hell away from this shallow guy who apparently has absolutely NO brains whatsoever. I felt sorry for him before, but now that I see him in action…what a loser. Keep picking what you think is the prettiest girl, David, so that when she has nothing for you she will crap all over you. You deserve it for being so shallow, frankly.

  12. I’m with the majority here….I used to feel sorry for David, now I think he makes his own problems. I think he needs an “ask the audience” show to match him, he makes poor choices on his own, and I can’t wait to see the follow up show, where the truth comes out.

  13. David is a Douch Bag. He wants what he can’t get. He was crazy about the woman he marrid on “Married at first sight” she was not into him. Was not attracted to him for a moment, yet he would have done anything to keep her. He gets another chance and the tells Melika that he loves her. He did not even do it in a romantic way. She rejects him. She is like a dead fish. She never smiles, she is so COLD. Tara who I think would ne a great fit, anyone could see that she loves him, and he rejects her at the last minute after telling her too that he loves her. I think David has no self esteem and he like women who rejects him. I don’t think that he is really looking for love. I think that even if he was not where Tara was, he could have told her that he wanted to wait to get away from the cameras, and try dating like ordinary people before he gives her a ring. I am sure she would have gone with that. He is a Jerk. How did he thin she would feel after telling her that he loves her? Does he really understand what love is? I think he is a simpleton and he has no self respect of self esteem. Maybe it’s a good thing he turned them down, because after the camera stop rolling they would find out that he is a man-child.

  14. David is a Douch Bag. He wants what he can’t get. He was crazy about the woman he marrid on “Married at first sight” she was not into him. Was not attracted to him for a moment, yet he would have done anything to keep her. He gets another chance and the tells Melika that he loves her. He did not even do it in a romantic way. She rejects him. She is like a dead fish. She never smiles, she is so COLD. Tara, I think would be a great fit, anyone could see that she was falling for him, and he made her think that he was too. She did a very sweet thing for him about his dad. I can’t believe that he rejects her at the last minute after telling her too, that he loves her. I think David has no self esteem and he likes women who rejects him. I don’t think that he is really looking for love or maybe he has no concept of love really is.. I think that even if his heart was not where Tara’s was, he could have told her that he wanted to wait to get away from the cameras, and try dating like ordinary people before giving her a ring. I am sure she would have gone along with that. He is a Jerk. How did he think she would feel after telling her that he loves her? When she got there and told him that she was nervous, he told her not to be, there is nothing to be nervous aout Does he really understand what love is? I am glad she rejected him and walked out by herself. She was hurt, and she saidd that she was scared that she could be. He is probably just looking for someone to sleep with. I think he is a simpleton and he has no self respect or self esteem. Maybe it’s a good thing he turned them down, because after the cameras stop rolling they would probably find out that he is a man-child.

  15. David obviously likes women who step all over him. He is not a real man. He has no concept of what having a relationship is. I would hate to see him raise a son. If I had a daughter and she brought home someone like David, I would have to tell her to snap out of it. He has no balls. Malika has no interest in him, yet she is who he wants. He gets on my nerve with that stupid smile, I just was to slap him and wipe it off. He is too much a people pleaser for women who would crap all over him. He needs therapy.
