Married at First Sight season 17 cast member Lauren made a bad “joke” toward her Native American husband, Orion Martzloff, that she may not be able to redeem herself from. Lauren and Orion married at the altar as strangers in Married at First Sight‘s Denver, Colorado, chapter. Each came into the experiment thinking they were ready to share their lives with someone and be accepted for who they are. Lauren is a proud black woman, while Orion is deeply tied to his Native roots. Lauren said she was ready to date outside of her race after never having done so before.
