Tensions were high as the couples gathered round the fire pit, as Zachariah announced who he would like to couple up with. He told the group the conversations the person he had chosen to couple up with were very ‘beautiful’ and that the conversations between the two were ‘very easy’.

Ahead of the ceremony, Andre had started to feel insecure about his relationship with Catherine. He stole her from a conversation with Zachariah which Catherine joked was him getting ‘territorial’. However, she later said it gave her the ick.
