The bar is being raised in Texas with five new pairings.

Together, they talk through the pros and cons of matching 33-year-old Rachel and 35-year-old Jose. “I’m very excited about this couple,” Dr. Viviana gushes. Dr. Pepper echoes her sentiment, adding, “I think he’s very committed to marriage, he is not someone I think you ever have to worry about being unfaithful.”

“Now, she does have a penchant for a social life, and he’s flat out said… Sundays [are] for meal prep,” Dr. Vivana notes, offering a possible issue along the line. But Pastor Cal is a bit more optimistic, adding that “maybe that side of her can sort of break him out of his stringent way of living.”

What it boils down to is there are more similarities between these two than differences. Based on early details, it would seem that this pairing is entering marriage with all the right intentions, but only time will tell for sure.
