MAFS’ Harrison Hits Back at Critics After His Response to Bronte’s Endometriosis Battle

Married At First Sight” star Harrison has defended his sincerity after tearing up at Sunday night’s commitment ceremony. 

The controversial groom sat solo on the couch in front of the experts, detailing Bronte‘s struggle with endometriosis. Endometriosis is a medical condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus.  

It was a rather awkward ordeal as he appeared to choke back tears at the idea of her being in pain.

“Unfortunately, Bronte couldn’t be here,” Harrison began. “She goes through a lot more at that time of the month.”

Harrison clarified that he wasn’t an advocate for “endo-demetriosis” (yep, he couldn’t even pronounce it right) or “a woman’s biological functions,” but seeing Bronte in a lot of pain made him emotional.

“It’s just really hard to see her like that,” he said. “I’m gonna try and get through this as best I can. I’ve just got to be supportive and do whatever I can”.

There were some raised eyebrows over his response, with many viewers accusing the groom of faking his emotions for cameras. But now, Harrison has since claimed his emotions were “very real”.

“I have a lot of empathy, and a real soft spot for my son and you’ve seen my softer side in flashes during the experiment,” he wrote on Facebook.

“I don’t appreciate the women of the group laughing at me showing vulnerability and showing absolutely no care for Bronte’s situation. What you see tonight is a guy showing nothing but compassion and real genuine care for his wife.”

During the episode, even expert John Aiken wasn’t buying it, saying, “I’m not getting a sense that you’re being real with us.”

And viewers on Twitter had the same reaction. 

“Married At First Sight” continues Monday — Wednesday at 7.30pm on Channel 9 and 9Now.
