Viewers tuned in to Married At First Sight might find themselves a little confused by Steve and Mishel's relationship.
One week, there seems to be no hope for them as a couple, with Steve saying he's not attracted to Mishel and writing "Leave". The next week, they're saying they love each other and are moving towards intimacy.
"It may be confusing, but I make no apologies," Steve, 52, tells TV WEEK. "I'm not here to make everyone else in Australia happy. I'm here to make myself happy – and Mishel happy, if possible."
The UK-born barbershop owner explains that everything changed for him and Mishel in the space of just one hour during groom homestay week.
Steve describes how they had a "deep and meaningful" conversation when there were no cameras around.
"Our producer was on the phone downstairs in his car," Steve explains. "Mishel just opened up to me about many things. It's something I'll cherish for the rest of my life.
"It was a very moving moment. We hugged and were both in tears. My attraction started to grow towards Mishel because of the conversation."
Because it's a "personal matter", Steve doesn't want to go into details of what they talked about, but admits their relationship might be less confusing to viewers if they'd been able to see and hear it.
"Being privy to the conversation may have made it clearer," he says. "Where we were after that is a really close moment and I will love Mishel until the day I die."

Steve, whose previous partners include MasterChef Australia winner Diana Chan, wants to make it clear that he never once said Mishel wasn't attractive.
"I said I was struggling with my attraction," he explains. "They're two completely different things. She's a beautiful, beautiful person."
