Married At First Sight star Andrew admits he’s been afraid to venture out in public since appearing on the show.
In a candid interview with WHO magazine, the firefighter says he’s become an introvert since his bride, Lauren, ditched him on their honeymoon.
“I haven’t really left the house. I don’t want to go up the street and get photographed at the traffic lights,” he says.
Andrew says the outpour of public support he’s received has helped soften the blow of rejection.
“It could have been worse. I could have been painted as Perth’s pickiest guy. I didn’t know who to trust going into this or what was going to happen, but I’ve had so much support,” he says,
“I mean, I was never in any psychical danger, it was just an up and down bumpy road. I could have left whenever I wanted. I thought I had the chance to meet someone amazing, but at the same time I thought am I really going to meet someone amazing on a show like this?”
Andrew decided to continue the show but with new partner, Cheryl, who decided against staying in her relationship with her husband John.
The pair went on a date which Cheryl dubbed “one of the best dates” she had ever been on.
