However, their budding romance came to a sudden halt when he was accused of hooking up with Hayley Vernon— an affair he can't quite seem to remember thanks to a few too many drinks!
Obviously, his actions caused the mother-of-two to lose faith and trust in her television husband, meaning he spent most of his time in the experiment trying to prove that he'd changed his deceitful ways. But just when we thought they'd made it out the other side, he was slapped with another cheating allegation, with many (including Stacey) claiming he tried to hook up with intruder KC Osborne.
In saying this, Stacey isn't so innocent herself! She's been embroiled in her own cheating scandal, with Mikey Pembroke telling Australia that he "slept with" the blonde bombshell during the experiment.
These claims, along with dozens of fights about his reckless behaviour and attitude towards drinking eventually led to the demise of their relationship. And it's clear they're on bad terms! In fact, Stacey says she'd "rather swallow acid and die" than ever see or speak to her now estranged ex-husband again!
Regardless of what's transpired since they met at the altar, let's take a look at what they promised each other in their lovey-dovey first vows.
Michael began with his vows, which could definitely be described as sweet.
"A man at a bus stop once told me, 'Life is like a box of chocolates.' Never has that felt so true as now," he said to good-natured groans from onlookers.
"Three experts have reached into a box of Favourites and picked out my life partner — one who I know will be a huge 'boost' to my life, one who I know I can 'crunch' through life's problems with, one who I can 'snickers' at her every joke, and one who I can 'twirl' around this dance floor 'til we're dizzy.
"But in all seriousness, I'm ready to leave the boy behind and become a man. We have an opportunity to create something magical, something pure, real and unique."
"I'd be naive to ask you today to accept, love and desire me, yet I appreciate you standing here giving me the chance. The chance to make you my everything — my best friend, my banter buddy, my go-to girl and my princess.
"So hold on tight, 'cause we're in for a hell of a ride."
"To my husband, I promise you that from this day forward I am wholeheartedly putting my love and energy into this journey with you.
"Of course I am nervous. Lots of people think I am crazy for marrying a complete stranger, especially considering how hurt I have been throughout my past. But as you will learn I never do things by halves.
"I know I am a lot to take in at first sight, but today, on our wedding day, I promise that I will let you break down my walls, get to know the real me, which only a few people know, and I will make you the happiest man, and the best wife I can be."
