PS: How did you feel watching Michelle and Jesse? They had a very different path and being twins, you feel a lot for her. Was it tough for you to watch her struggling?
Sharon: Yeah, definitely. When I watched Michelle on the couch, it's like every emotion that she felt, I felt it too. It's really hard in this experiment because there's so much pressure on you to dig deep and make it work, because you want it to work so much. So even though you feel like, "Oh, I'm halfway through the experiment, is it going to work, why am I doubting myself, should I leave?," there's that little bit of pressure that you've committed to the eight-week experiment, and you should finish it because there might be a shift in feeling from one or the other person, and you've got to give it a good go to the end. There's a lot of pressure, and it's not easy — it's challenging. We all went through real big high and lows, but that's life. It was very hard, but she did really, really well. And she had support from us — we were all there for each other.
PS: Exactly, it was so good that you could do it together. I feel like it would've made a big difference.
Sharon: Oh absolutely! I never thought in my wildest dreams my sister would be doing something like this with me. We have something to tell our kids!
PS: Onto the whole Jonesy and Cheryl saga — has that surprised you, with the way its been perceived?
Sharon: It's a difficult one, that one. They've had struggles from the start, I guess, and it's tough because I'm sure people say stuff they regret, or wish they maybe didn't say too much, or they should've said more. It's learning — you look back in hindsight and can hopefully grow and learn and be better in the future. It doesn't surprise me that they both wanted to leave. Hopefully they find the right people out there in the more traditional sense.
PS: Watching the footage back of the boys' night, was it a shock to you? I know you guys were kind of flying blind at the dinner party.
Sharon: Listen, in life I think everyone definitely does say things out of order at times, and it is unfortunate that some things were said. Everyone slips up at times, so I guess the right thing to do is just to apologise and move forward, and just hope everyone can move forward in a positive light.
