Michael took Stacey on a rather unusual date on episode 31 of Married at First Sight. He rented, or more likely bought, a cheap old car, that he joked cost less than Stacey's Valentino heels, and then asked her to drive north, where, at one point, they pulled over at the side of the road and had a lunch of lukewarm pies, Pop Tops and convenience store sandwiches. Delicious.
Stacey was congratulated for being willing to put up with something so unglamorous, as a person used to living in luxury. When it started to rain, Michael retrieved an umbrella for his TV wife, which she sheltered under before the rainfall became too heavy and they high-tailed it out of there, leaving their precious camp chairs behind.
Don't think the Australian public didn't notice the deserted — and disrespected — camp chairs.

What a waste of two perfectly good $20 Bunnings chairs! #MAFS

They’re just gonna leave the chairs there? #MAFS

I think those two deck chairs left behind have more of a future than this years cast #MAFS

What was so bad or stressful about driving a car, sitting in a Bunnings chair and eating a sandwich?
How has Stacey taken one on the chin? 🤷🏻♂️#MAFS #MAFSAustralia #MAFSAU #mafsaunz pic.twitter.com/OmPNzlxlye
