MAFS: Are Katina Goode And Olajuwon Dickerson Still Together?
Netflix’s ‘Married At First Sight’ season 14 is upon us and one of the couples that we see on the show is Olajuwon Dickerson and Katina Goode. Before the show premiered, the cast of the show was teasing fans about their experience on the show.
Talking about Olajuwon, he has a “playboy” past but as he grew older he stopped enjoying that phase of life and realize that he was pretty lonely. He also recognized that he didn’t have anyone with him with whom he could share his daily experiences or excitement, or someone who could drive him to change.
But, Olajuwon hopes that his being on the show helps him deviate from his old ways. So, he realized that he was ready to settle down and have a family of his own. About how he ended up on the show, Olajuwon went to college with Jephte Pierre from season 6. At their meeting during a reunion, Jephte praised the production of the show, so eventually, Olajuwon decided to sign up for MAFS.
And, his partner Katina desires to find someone with whom she can raise a family and grow old. She had dreams of being a loving mother and a wife. However, she had a streak of failed relationships in the past. Hence, she dedicated the last two years before joining the show to an intricate journey of self-love and self-discovery to grow both mentally as well as spiritually.
Katina now knows her worth and also has a better understanding of how the world works. She also shared about the surprises she felt after being on the show. “What surprised me the most was how intense going through the whole process is,” Katina shared. “I don’t think anyone could prepare you for something like this. Talking about emotions every day and having to repeat difficult moments that you and your partner have had was the hardest part for me.”
Despite all the challenges, Katina leaned on the friendships she made to help learn more about herself and understand her marriage to Olajuwon. She added more, “The process has its pros and cons, but what surprised me the most was how a stranger could be a safety net. I learned that the amount of time you know someone doesn’t matter, but your connection does.”
Coming back to Olajuwon, he had a few pieces of advice to give to the future participants. He shared, “Don’t change who they are for cameras, and if you genuinely want the process to work, come with a loving heart, open mind, and forget about a person’s past.”
The big question everyone is asking now is, are Olajuwon and Katina still together?
Olajuwon states on his Facebook that he is single, maybe because he doesn’t want to spoil anything. However, Reddit detectives confirmed that he and Katina are still together, happily married. But, drama is of course the fun part of the show so fans have to catch up to the show for that.
