After their marriage on Married at First Sight, Olajuwan could not stop talking about how beautiful Katina looked but Katina looked a little overwhelmed with his over-the-top personality. Three episodes later, fans were skeptical of Olajuwan's intentions with Katina on Married at First Sight.
There were numerous instances throughout the course of the three episodes that made the fans doubt their relationship. One fan tweeted,
"Yeah, still can’t stand Olajuwon. #MAFSBoston #mafs #MarriedAtFirstSight"
Married at First Sight couple Katina and Olajuwan faced obstacles in their journey
After the wedding, it was a tough path to walk on for the couple with many obstacles in their way. The first one came up when Katina's friends met with Olajuwan to discuss his intentions.
Olajuwan tried to get to know Katina's close friends but was met with striking questions about his intentions with Katina. The meeting almost ended in an explosive argument, leaving the friends extremely discouraged about Katina's future with Olajuwan.
The conversation started to take a turn for the worse when Olajuwan said that he joined the show because he wanted to try something new. Friends saw this as a major red flag and questioned his seriousness in all of this. One of her friends said,
"There has to be something you want out of the process... it's either you really believe in the process... or you have ulterior motives.'
Fans were skeptical of Olajuwan and his intentions too.
Katina and Olajuwan spend some alone time on Married at First Sight
In episode 5 of the show, Katina admitted that she would rather be by the pool but chose the gym to oblige with Olajuwan's request. Katina began to regret the experience as Olajuwan became a little too intense and judgemental throughout the session. For fans this was nothing but red flags all over.
Olajuwan's openness about his past as a player and his preference for different forms of relationships made everyone awkward on the boat while playing Never Have I Ever. Fans also failed to understand the point of that conversation.
During the couple's private dinner on Married at First Sight, Katina made sure to make her preferences clear. Olajuwan assured her that she’s the only woman he needs. When they got back to the resort, Olajuwan prepared a romantic night with rose petals, candles, and champagne only for Katina to realize that she was falling in love with him.
Fans were very skeptical of Olajuwan's intentions after this specific episode.
The show airs every Wednesday at 8.00pm ET on Lifetime.
