MAFS’ Andrew spills on his exit and reveals he has a new girlfriend
He was one of the most controversial participants to appear on this year’s season of Married At First Sight, and on Sunday night Andrew Davis officially left the experiment.
The Texan groom, who was accused of ‘gaslighting’ his partner Holly Greenstein when he stormed out of the last dinner party, shocked viewers when he decided not to attend the commitment ceremony and face the show’s experts.
Instead, Holly arrived by herself and chose to read out a letter to the group confronting them over their lack of support throughout her troubled relationship.
“Andrew took my voice and he silenced me,” she said. “This is my voice and believe me, I am here to speak right now for the people in a relationship who have been silenced and who are not believed.”
While he didn’t get to share his side of the story on the couch, Andrew has now provided an insight into his experience and how he felt “obligated” to write ‘stay’ at the first commitment ceremony.
“My mental health was greatly damaged during the whole process,” he told Fitzy & Wippa, adding that he “100 per cent” regrets going on the show. “I felt like the pairing was off to begin with.”

Andrew went on to reveal that he has “absolutely not” stayed in touch with his on-screen ‘wife’, but he has already found himself a new girlfriend.
“I've had a partner for quite a while now,” he said. “It’s somebody I was with previously and then kind of fell off. And then yeah, it kind of got sparked back up.”
Speaking about his relationship with Holly, Andrew admitted that he feels bad for her and wants her to find her forever person but he won’t be apologising to her any more than he’s already done.
“I tried as hard as I could to apologise to her in her presence,” he said. “I still have a problem with her not being accountable to anything she says. She found it hard to do that.
“But at the end of the day, if I saw her on the street I'd be nice to her and I have no ill will towards her. I want her to be happy.”
Married At First Sight airs at 7pm on Sunday and 7:30pm on Monday to Wednesday on Channel Nine and 9Now.
