Married at First Sight NZ: Vicky leaves Andrew at final vows

While Andrew is willing to give their marriage a shot, Vicky cites the lack of chemistry as the reason for them to part.

The journey of Andrew and Vicky has been a bumpy one.

Just as we think the two are running smoothly, there's drama.

However, we must say, these two have always been great at resolving their arguments regardless of the severity.

At their wedding, Andrew was absolutely smitten by Vicky telling her she looked beautiful. Vicky, however, did find Andrew handsome but made it clear that he wasn't exactly what she was looking for.

The pair spent their honeymoon on Waiheke island where they seemed to get along relatively fine, however, not without a few hiccups.

Vicky also commented on the fact that she'd prefer Andrew's hair shorter and more clean cut. This is where we began to see more clearly that Andrew wasn't quite what Vicky was after.

We then saw Andrew finally get the haircut, but then realise he didn't want to change himself.

It hasn't all been bad, the pair have had some great times together also, and it's clear to see a friendship between them.

It's time for the couple to make a final decision, and Andrew is first to declare his final vows to Vicky.

“We came into this unsure, but at least now I can say I’m sure of a few things. I’m sure that we’ve had fun, I’m sure that we can get through anything, I’m sure that we’ve grown from this, I’m sure that I’ve met great people – friends and family.

"I’m sure that my life is richer from meeting you; I’m sure that no matter what happens from here, I’ll always be a phone call away.

"I’m that in the coming weeks we’re going to have a new adventure but once more I’m sure we can tackle anything so we’ll be sweet.

"I'm sure that on long days when you wanna hide, you can hide away, provided it’s not for six weeks in an apartment together.

"I'll always love the time that I had with you Vicky, and I hope to make heaps more memories and it’s hard to believe that this is the end, but I honestly hope that it’s not the end of us.

"So what I’m saying is that I’d like to keep working at this, and willing to give it a go, even though we’ve talked about it, and I know I have feelings for you.

"I just need time to figure it all out. So I’m being honest, and it’s been important to me and you since the start, so that’s just me being honest.”

Next, it's Vicky, who is rather emotional after hearing Andrew's heartfelt vows.

"I stand in front of you today, as your wife, and you my husband. It’s a long way from where we were 6 weeks ago, as two strangers, one at a hens and one at a stag anxiously waiting out upcoming wedding.

"Going into the experiment, we both had an idea of what each other would like, and what we’d be like as people. All our traits, good and bad, were laid bare, as we lived together for four of the craziest weeks of my life.

"I quickly learnt that my husband is a guy who is the life of the party, who has a passion for life and who has an absolute banger of a smile.

"A caring man with a big heart, someone who would make me dinner, bring me home a bottle of bottles, and most of all, someone who would go into bats for me against anyone, no questions asked."For everything that’s been amazing, we haven’t been without the hard times, we’ve had very heated arguments, that are more often than not left unresolved. "I often feel drained of my energy after a day with you, but most of all I’ve found it difficult to calm down after an argument whether it be with myself or with someone else.

"As I looked at other couples in the experiment, it’s a good opportunity to assess where we are, and for the most part, I feel like we’ve done a really good job.

"The experts have given us as much guidance as possible, and we’ve implemented these into our day-to-day lives. It is hard for me to deny, however, that the chemistry between us has been lacking from the start.

"And as I stand in front of you, at the end of it, I’m sad to say that it’s not there. Which is why I have decided to bring our relationship to an end.

"Of all the men that I could have been matched with in this experiment I am glad it was you.

"I know we will always be good friends, and I appreciate the time that we did spend together.

"You're an awesome guy, and I genuinely do think that the right person for you is just around the corner."

The two end on a hug, and Andrew handles Vicky's vows well, not even crying and asking her if she's okay.

Vicky tells the camera that she feels really bad and Andrew eventually cries after she leaves.

Oh Andrew, at least you still have Mr Pigglesworth to go home to!
