Tim is a 31-year-old "charming surfer boy" who has a successful online business.
Why does Tim need the help of three experts to find love? According to him - and we stress, in his own words - his ex was "being a naughty girl" and cheated on him. A lot. This led to embarrassment and a desire to find someone more committed.
"I do need the experts help because I want a committed relationship and I want to meet the person I want to spend the rest of my life with," he said, adding he wanted to find "fire" with somebody.
Upon confirming the match, expert Mel Schilling said "this couple have the potential to be lightening in a bottle, they are exactly what each other have asked for and, I believe, what each other need."
"When you think about the matches we’ve made over the years, it might be the best match we’ve made over the entire series – in terms of their personality styles and just the chemistry that I think will leap off the table with both of them," John added.
And when they first laid eyes on one another at the ceremony, it seemed like the experts might be right.
Tim wowed his bride by speaking Spanish, telling her "I’m enchanted to meet you my love, you are incredibly beautiful."
The vows went smoothly and the pair even shared a sweet smooch when they were pronounced husband and wife.
Things took a swift turn at the reception, though, when the subject of their previous romances came up. Tim made the shock revelation he only split from his long-term partner six months ago – and had been planning to propose to her this year.
"So I need your help..." he started, before Sara cut him off to say "to get over your ex?"
He was right to let the ex-girlfriend cat out of the emotional trauma bag, but this wasn't the time and place. At least for Sara.
Tim quickly shut down her line of thought, but it was clear it stuck with Sara as she told producers “that was a slap in the face” before telling them she thinks he is “probably not” over his ex, given the circumstances.
And then of course, came the best man speech straight from the gates of hell.
With a mullet, microphone, and false sense of confidence in his comedic delivery, Best Man Ben delivered a speech that will surely haunt the wedding guests for years to come.
He took the approach of roasting Tim, bringing up past sexual experiences, strange food tangents, and awkward jibes at the bride.
“I was not surprised when I heard Tim was partaking in this experiment,” Ben began his speech. “Because Tim is a man of science. He’s quite fond of experimentation.
“Experiment 551, romance at high speed: is road head safe?” he said, to gasps from the crowd. “Experiment 552, is it okay to get head in the ER since you crashed your car and you’re here now anyway?”
The speech continued in that same vein, until he ended on a story about Tim eating “rancid” chicken at a music festival.
And then he said: “So here we are, experiment 865, I mean Sara. Tim is a wonderful human being, he radiates charisma like the sun, and Sara you can find solace in the fact that, rancid or not, Tim will still eat you.”
Sometimes we ask "are men okay?" but this speech seems to warrant a more pressing question: "why?"
Sara was left unimpressed at the end of her wedding reception, telling producers she would be pulling back from Tim after initially being smitten by her suitor.
"I'm just really annoyed," she told producers. "I would have gone into this full-force but now I'm like just taking it back. Tim needs to step up, he really make me feel special. At this point in my life I will not accept anything less than 100% effort. If I was going to take minimal effort, I would just be dating in Sydney."
Less-than-stellar first impressions aside, Tim and Sara surprised everyone when they became one of the more stable couples in the first weeks of the experiment.
However, the couple quickly hit another bump in the road when Sara refused to partake in the phone swap challenge.
“I haven’t given you a reason not to trust me. So, what’s the point?” she said. “It’s invasive.”
The second dinner party of the season saw the couple's relationship deteriorate even further, with the pair's argument escalating to a yelling match.
Sara, who admitted she was struggling to adapt to living with a man 24 hours a day, remained defensive, explaining she saw no problem with bailing on three dates Tim had organised.
"He’s really upset about the dates which I think is so silly," she told the cameras. "I wanted to see my girlfriends, that shouldn’t be a problem. He’s being too needy.”
Both the experts and contestants added their own perspectives to the argument, labelling Sara as defensive and both parties in the wrong.
The night ended with Sara in tears and Tim ashamed about raising his voice - but their issues still unresolved.
