From the way "he bites his nails" to the fact "he wasn't wearing a tie", Rebecca's comments were cutthroat.

"He bites his nails," she said whilst speaking to the producers. "I pay attention to details, he's been gnawing those away." Where his outfit was concerned, Rebecca slammed his dismissal of a tie and added: "And I noticed he had his buttons undone showing his tattoo piece. I know my parents would not approve of that at all."

One wrote: "Jake could have done anything and Bec would have had an issue with it," while another added: "She's judged a guy from a distance because his eyes didn’t react the way she wanted them to. No wonder she's single. I feel sorry for the bloke. This won't last." A third concurred: "Rebecca, they figured out you're high maintenance within 15 seconds… ACCURATELY!"

As for Jake, viewers couldn't help but pity him. "Why am I so sad for Jake?" one tweeted. Another agreed and wrote: "Jake has had mental health issues in the past. Rebecca is going to wear him down and this isn't going to be good for him at all," while a third said: "Don't get me started on Bec, Jake is a damn catch."

Only time will tell whether the marriage will last.
