Meanwhile, before arriving at the commitment ceremony, Michael said: 'Big questions need to be asked tonight.'
He believes he and Josh were set up by Ivan, to make Ivan look like a protective hero defending his wife's honour.
The group sat down before the experts, who broke some bombshell news to the gang.
'Last night, we had a remarkable dinner party,' relationship expert, John Aiken said. 'We’ve just been informed that Ivan and Aleks won’t be attending tonight. They have decided to leave the experiment.'
Shell-shocked, the MAFS cast had some choice words for the rogue couple.
'Do they think they’re better than us or something? Cowards,' Stacey Hampton snapped, while Josh called them 'Gutless. Absolutely gutless. Them not showing up just proves our point, doesn’t it.'
Cathy was still under the impression that Aleks had a lot to answer for. 'I think she wanted to avoid confrontation from the group.'
As for Lizzie, she jumped to Michael and Josh's defense. 'It’s not fair. It’s not fair. They’re not privileged,' she said, adding: 'I thought it was really unfair last night how Michael and yourself got used. It was absolutely disgusting.'
Josh looked defeated. 'They just don’t want to face the music. Basically.'
Stacey closed the discussion. Telling the the experts, 'He wanted to be the knight in shining armour meanwhile throwing you under the bus and making you look like the liars.'
Bring on the reunion!
