The man who makes you this salad knows what he's doing

The reality TV series Married at First Sight is all about challenging boundaries, and in last night's episode, one couple challenged the boundary between nachos and taco salad. This is groundbreaking television, people.

The series follows three couples who married as perfect strangers as they try to make their marriages work in six weeks. And let me be the first to tell you, it's better than The Bachelor, because the stakes are much, much higher. Anyway, in last night's episode, newlywed Trey made his wife Vanessa his favorite dish: taco salad consisting of a pile of Doritos topped with ground beef, shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream and pickled jalapeños.

Fans on Twitter were unanimous: Any man who uses Doritos to make you a salad is obviously a keeper.

The way to a woman's heart is through a salad that is so clearly not a salad.

Whatever it is (nachos?), everyone watching was craving neon-colored, cheese-flavored chips.

1. He is correct. 2. I'm sure Bowlus wishes he'd been invited over for dinner that night.
