“Married At First Sight: Second Chances” reunion show continues to garner attention and comments from viewers. Some that are directed at David Norton are mean, while others are downright nasty. He’s the man who had 100 girls to choose from and ended up with no one at the end of the season.
But, what’s happened to David Norton is clear. He’s gone from shocked to fighting back against those that criticize or accuse him of hurting the women he dated. The reunion show was a disaster for him, and exposed lies and behavior that came as a surprise, even to the show’s experts on the stage, Rachel DeAlto and Pastor Roberson. For a full rundown on those, read the recap of the reunion show.
“Married At First Sight: Second Chances” was supposed to be David’s salvation after the failure of his marriage on the show’s original format. He along with Vanessa Nelson, also a disappointed participant, got a second chance to find love. The format was quite different and put the decision to choose a life partner squarely in the hands of David and Vanessa. That means that bad choices couldn’t be blamed on experts’ mis-matching pairs of people.
In a long, very long blog post published after the reunion show aired, David defended himself, calling the show “character assassination”. Yet, he admits much of what he was accused of by the ladies he dumped, apologizing for things on a selective basis, while justifying others. Here’s just a sample of the fun in store for you, if you choose to read the whole thing. A link to David’s epistle, so to speak, is posted below.
“Make no mistake about it, that reunion was a character assassination by a lot of people that I called friends (who like their exes, to be fair). Not all what you said during the “he-said, she-said” was true, just like not all was false. It’s pointless to list everything. One thing is for sure, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Times five.”
“Example: Lets say I said, “I love you” to Tara as you saw it. Why didn’t she say it back, or acknowledge it? If she didn’t say it back or acknowledge the fact that I said it, don’t you think that would have played a factor in my decision?”
“I am sorry to the fans who feel betrayed. I am sorry to every woman who entered this process for the result that came of it. But did I “fake it” as I have been accused of? I did my best to be real and genuine, but I did reach a point where, I wouldn’t say I was faking it, but I was forcing it.”
