Duncan has been partnered with Alyssa on the current season of MAFS, and while they appeared to get off to a good start, their relationship has been showing cracks in recent episodes. They began butting heads at the couple’s retreat when Alyssa demanded that the cyber security salesman give her more attention and reassurance.

Then, in an episode this week, Alyssa was shown questioning the relationship and walked out of their shared apartment saying she ‘needs time’.

“I really struggled having to leave our conversation to go pick up my son. But he will always come first,” she captioned a photo of herself.
