In the clip, Kate explained Luke was actually the one who initiated the smooch. “I think that Luke is a pleaser and he knows that I’m attracted to him, and I like him … so he kissed me last night just to try it,” she said.

However, things quickly took a turn for the worst. “He had to stop because he said it made him feel repulsed and dead inside,” the 28-year-old continued. “It made me feel terrible, and I don’t know what to do.”

The 30-year-old civil engineer then acknowledged the inherent risk of their marriage. "If you’re marrying a stranger, there’s 100 percent a chance that you guys don’t mesh, that you guys aren’t attracted to each other,” he said. “But it’s definitely a risk that I took and it feels absolutely terrible that this relationship won’t work out.”
