EXCLUSIVE: Vanessa Nelson On MAFS Second Chances- I Had A Better Radar For BS
We recently spoke to Married At First Sight: Second Chances star Vanessa Nelson about why she wanted to give love a second chance on television. In our conversation, we also touched on what made her feel confident enough to trust the experts again after her marriage on Married At First Sight didn’t work out and more.
On what made her feel confident enough in the experts to give them a second chance, after their initial pairing didn’t work out on Married At First Sight, Nelson shared that, “The experts definitely tried their best and MAFS takes effort from the participants. At the end of the day, the couples have to make it work and find the reasons why they are compatible. This time around I did feel more confident that I had all the control. Having the experts to guide me through this crazy dating experience was so helpful.”
Since Married At First Sight: Second Chances has Nelson weeding out potential suitors, we wondered how hard was it to separate the guys she wanted to stay from the ones she didn’t.
On this, Nelson detailed that it was “extremely difficult! I didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings or make anyone feel rejected. I saw so many amazing characteristics in a lot of the men. So I had to get down to the nitty gritty and figure out who was best for me.”
We also were curious if she was nervous she’d meet another Tres Russell, her husband from Married At First Sight or if she was confident this time would be better.
“I wasn’t nervous,” Nelson dished. “I learned to spot red flags early, listen to my gut and make firm decisions in order to have successful relationships. So while I was more open and trusting this time around, I had a better radar for BS.”
Nelson wrapped with telling us what we can expect to see this season, detailing that we’ll see “Crazy, fun and adventurous dates! This season is packed with so much fun and so many lessons on dating do’s and dont’s. Second Chances isn’t about elaborate and staged dating, its about real people making real connections.”
We look forward to continuing to watch Nelson’s journey unfold and are hopeful that she will end up with the man of her dreams at the end of the show.
