My National TV Debut! FYI Network Married at First Sight

Sujeiry shares her national TV debut with a clip of the Married at First Sight Casting Special where she was part of the cast but didn’t continue with the show.

Do you remember that show I was cast for? Well, I turned it down because they wanted me to marry a stranger. Hence the title of the show, “Married at First Sight.” They threw us a curve ball at the casting meeting and gave us a choice to continue with the show. I chose not to for obvious reasons. Others continued on and were matched. We will have to watch the show on the FYI Network to see if the matched couples stayed married.

But enough about them. How about you watch me on TV! Though I chose not to continue with the show, my casting tape was used for the “Married at First Sight: Casting Special.” Cause, you know, I’m awesome, especially on camera. As I’ve been told many times, the camera loves me! I pop, much like the green blouse I wore that day.

I do love the clip. Do you? My hair also looks great and my facial expressions are very me! Did they make me look cray? A little. They added the “experts” commentary after my segment to insinuate that I was eliminated because of “attention seeking” and “dramatics.” That’s what they want the viewers to assume. It’s subtle, but I picked up on it. I’m not upset. Unlike others who complain about being misrepresented, it’s reality television. I didn’t expect anything less. They wanted to use my footage and they did. They told my story in a way that made their story look better. Again, it’s reality TV!

Sujeiry Married at First Sight FYI funny facesI don’t regret the experience. I know I am blessed. I turned down the gig, sure. I would have been on TV for more than 2 minutes, sure. But I have my integrity, my family, my friends and my man. I also learned that everything does happen for a reason. If I hadn’t been cast on this show, I wouldn’t have moved back to NYC from LA. I wouldn’t be here with loved ones and I wouldn’t have met my boo. I realize now that things work out as they should.

This experience also solidified my desire to continue this crazy journey that is the TV and radio biz. It is what I am meant to do. I just need to wait for the right opportunity at the right time. Till then, I will take my 15 minutes of fame and churn it into something as wonderful as my hair and that fab emerald green top.
