Jade Roper Calls Out Tanner Tolbert in ‘Marriage Boot Camp’ Sneak Peek: ‘I Crave a Deeper Connection’

Does the relationship need a defibrillator? Newlyweds Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert get into a heated argument after she climbs out of a body bag in Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Friday, October 14, episode, as seen in Us Weekly’s exclusive sneak peek.

The We TV series’ preview clip shows Tolbert seeing what it would look like if Roper were to die in a sudden accident, as she is made up to look like a corpse. Tolbert is reminded of the harsh words he said to her in last week’s premiere that would have been his final remarks to her had the unthinkable happened.

“It makes me feel like a terrible person,” he says. “I know I never want to see myself in that situation. I know I never want to have those be my last words.”

However, therapist Dr. Venus Nicolino is unimpressed, referring to the Bachelor in Paradise alum’s comments about his seemingly dead wife as “a f–king voicemail.” And Roper agrees.

“It’s what I hear every day,” the Bachelor season 19 standout says. “It’s a little disappointing. I crave a deeper connection, but I don‘t feel like I have your heart because you can’t open up.”

But Tolbert fires back, pointing out that he’s not the only person in the marriage with opportunity for personal growth.

“There's things that I want to see change too,” he says.

Watch the heated clip above. Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars airs on We TV Fridays at 9 p.m. ET.
