Despite initially planning to stay out of the drama, Mike says he couldn’t control himself when he saw Jess at the dinner.
"I'd considered saying nothing and when I saw her swanning around the cocktail party, that was enough to tip me over the edge because I'd had enough exchanges with her and had chosen to back away from a dramatic scene," he says. "But on this occasion when Mark -- who is my best friend in the experiment -- was involved, I couldn't resist defending him."
Mike also admits that he didn’t notice that his wife, Heidi was upset by the drama.
"I had the blinkers on and I saw red and I don't think I really took much notice of anything else around me," he says. "I probably should have been more considerate of Heidi and her feelings about it, but I also expected some support on the matter after she had already spoken herself about it. She should have known that by telling me and firing me up I would react."
