One viewer Tweeted: 'Sayet has the mother from hell!'
The hashtag #BrideAndPrejudiceAU was trending nation-wide throughout the show.
The first couples introduced were Hank and Lily, Ange and Dylan, and Jess and Seyat.
It was Seyat's mum Fatima who caused the biggest stir of all.
'I believe Jess is a slutty party girl, I don't want my son to date a whore like that,' she said about the 21-year-old.
Meanwhile, Ange's dad John also raised eyebrows with his homophobic views.
'I don't agree with two girls,' he said.
'It's just not right.'
In fact, John doesn't even think his daughter is really gay.
'I don't think she is gay, I think she's confused,' he said.
A devastated Ange admitted: 'That was the first time I've ever heard that.'
And then there's Margaret.
Just when viewers didn't think it could get any worse, Hank's mum reacted to her son's announcement that he was engaged to long-time girlfriend Lily.
'I don't hate you Lily,' she said, sounding less than convinced.
With another three couples to meet on tomorrow night's episode, the drama is only set to ramp up.
