Bailey and Thomas were married on the show, but Bailey said that the cameras weren’t the major cause of the couple’s separation. “Regardless of if we were on the show or not, our issues would have happened anyways because it’s just personalities and it’s just chemistry and it’s also compatibility. I am really optimistic that in the end, after we take some time, we are going to be friends at the end of this because that was the start.”
