Every season, fans love to tune into the trainwreck of a show that is Married at First Sight, where brave souls agree to get set up in an arranged marriage with a complete stranger chosen for them by a team of experts — and the contestants are not allowed to see their future spouses until the moment they walk down the aisle. After six weeks, the couples are given the choice to stay together or to get divorced and on a rare occasion, a couple will decide to stay together. Former participants Nick Pendergrast and his wife Sonia Granados decided to stay together at the end of Season 4, but the ultimately divorced and got involved in one of the biggest scandals of the entire franchise. Keep reading below to find out more about what happened between Nick and Sonia!
The couple seemed to hit it off when they met for the first time at the altar, but they quickly started to experience issues with miscommunication and they also struggled because they both spoke different love languages. Another major issue in their marriage stemmed from the fact that Nick had been open about the fact that he wasn't attracted to Sonia.
But they both decided to stick it out and stay together, which was short-lived — they would later announce their divorce after less than a year of marriage.
Last July — just three months his divorce was finalized — Nick announced that he was expecting twins with his pregnant girlfriend Heather Yerrid, who is a love and relationship coach and an AfterBuzz TV host. Heather regularly covered MAFS on her show, and Nick had actually sought her out in order to get advice on how to work on his marriage with Sonia, and Sonia had a lot to say after the news about her ex-husband's new girlfriend and their pregnancy.
Yep. While he was trying to "work" things out with me but telling her different. Good luck to them both.
