Marc gets a grilling from family and friends.

Marc's home visits have come and gone. With these four all-important visits came a few intense questions from family and friends about his intentions with the ladies...and fans were there for it.


What are some of the questions you ask your friends' partners when meeting them for the first time? Marisia's friends certainly didn't hold back, going deep and intense with the question "what does love mean to you?" So we thought we'd drop that into the Twitterverse too. Here are the results of your thoughts.

Of course, there were feelings that maybe Marisia's friends were a little too intense...

Which again begs the question, what should you be asking the partner of your bestie, sister, brother, cousin, etc, etc? Here are a few grilling suggestions:

  • What do you like about my friend/sister/brother/cousin?
  • What did you do for your first date?
  • What are your friends like? / What's your relationship like with your siblings/relatives?
  • What are you afraid of?

In "normal" circumstances, you could also ask "how did you meet?. In this situation, we all obviously know. But then there's the usual "what do you do for a living?" question, which Marc did get asked, drawing a bemused reaction from fans.

However, Marc came out of the grillings relatively unscathed, although it certainly got him thinking...which is just what he needed to do, because it was time to send someone home.

After Gillian's emotional farewell, Marc told the top three that they would finally be able to leave the mansion and go on an adventure for more romance, kisses, and questions.
