Married At First Sight

MAFS EXCLUSIVE: Susie explains herself over THOSE remarks to Billy

“I just felt it was too much!”

By Anita Lyons
Susie Bradley has certainly replaced Ines Basic for the most outspoken bride on Married at First Sight.
The no-nonsense 25-year-old speaks her mind and doesn't care who's in the firing line – especially if you're her new husband, Billy Vincent.

In fact, Billy told the group that the language she uses is "really hurtful" and her response, was, well…this: "Well you should have used your big boy words and spoken to me." Eek.
"She's told me that she goes for bigger guys, that I'm too small. That I have "no balls", I'm strange and I'm not a man – man up!'" Billy told the experts.

Luckily expert John Aiken was on hand to rake Susie over the coals for her behaviour.
"Susie, I'm going to jump in here cos I can't just sit here anymore and hear the way you talk," he said. "It's doing my head in. It is toxic, OK?"

When Now to Love sat down with the single-mum and her new husband, we just had to ask why she chose to treat Billy in this fashion.
"Billy is a gentleman and as sad as it is to admit it, I've never had a gentleman before which is pathetic for me but it is the truth," she revealed.
"I just felt it was too much for me. I wasn't used to it and I was feeling overwhelmed."

But it wasn't just the experiment and her new husbands affections that were causing her angst - Susie was also away from her daughter, three-and-a-half year old, Baby, which contributed to her stress.
"You don't know until you're in that experiment how and what you're going to feel because it is a pressure cooker of emotions," she said. "You don't do things like you would normally."

While marrying a stranger was quite a new experience (for everyone), it was Billy's supposed "strange behaviour" that really tested her.
"He'd pull my chair out for me and I'd be like, 'what are you doing Billy?' because I'm so not used to it.
"But it wasn't just the gentleman thing. When you're so used to being on your own as an independent woman - like not having a dad for Baby as well - I've always had to do everything on my own and all of a sudden I've got this man trying to do everything for me and I found it all too much!"
"It was just my having to deal with it, things which I'd never experienced before."

So how did Billy fare with his new bride treating him like this?
"I really had to ask myself, did I want to change myself to make my wife like me more?" he told Now to Love. "Or did I want to just push forward and continue being myself until she kind of learnt to accept that there's more than one way to convey masculinity and I was in it to look after her.
"I've got to be more of a male than any other male had been in her life," he added.
After the pair made a surprising decision to stay in the experiment, the real question is – can Susie soften and give Billy a chance?
