Married At First Sight’s Claire and Jesse LEAVE the experiment in an explosive commitment ceremony
Jesse Burford accused Claire Nomarhas of staying on Married At First Sight to repair her public image after her cheating scandal earlier in the season.
And on Sunday night, the couple officially ended their relationship after weeks of trying—and failing—to make their relationship work.
During the commitment ceremony, Claire and Jesse made the decision to leave the show.
Jesse explained that it was hard to get over Claire cheating on him with Adam Seed.
‘I have stretched a lot. But Harrison’s comments really reminded me of a lot of things that I’ve been putting off about trust,” he explained before revealing his decision to leave.

Claire later said, “I take full responsibility for what I did and I didn’t stay for my image.” I stayed to show Jesse that you can make a mistake and come out of it and feel good and cared for.’
“I really wanted to sit on this couch and talk about what a great week we had and the retirement,” he said before revealing that he would leave.
Their relationship got off to a rocky start as Jesse repeatedly found fault with his wife’s behavior and hobbies.
Things went from bad to worse weeks later when Claire cheated on her husband with another boyfriend, Adam Seed, during a night out.
Despite these obstacles, the couple managed to find common ground and progressed together during family week.
But Jesse, who had previously tried to quit the experiment after Claire’s infidelity was discovered, couldn’t shake the feeling that his wife was only staying with him to rehabilitate his reputation after his cheating scandal.
Her anxieties were exposed at dinner Wednesday when Harrison Boon diverted attention from his own marital problems with Bronte Schofield by accusing Claire of using Jesse as a pawn to make himself look better.
During the commitment ceremony, Claire and Jesse made the decision to leave the show. Jesse explained that it was hard to get over Claire cheating on him with Adam Seed.
“What Harrison said is what maybe I’m afraid to say or even admit,” Jesse said as the entire table fell silent.
‘How can I trust that you stayed to build a connection with me and not to repair your image?’ he told Claire.
‘And this is the problem with cheating, I can’t trust you.’
Jesse then said that he knew that deep down, Claire only saw him as a friend, not a partner, adding that it killed him to know that she had connected with Adam the way he had longed to connect with her all along. the experiment.
Claire was shocked by this admission, but didn’t deny anything he said.
Claire later said, “I take full responsibility for what I did and I didn’t stay for my image.” I stayed to show Jesse that you can make a mistake and come back from it and feel good and cared for.”
