When Jamie Otis agreed to be placed in a scientifically arranged marriage on TV’s most controversial and groundbreaking reality show, MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT, she knew that saying “I do” to Doug Hehner, a complete stranger, was a huge risk. What she didn’t know was how to be a wife! Through trial and error — and more ups and downs than a roller coaster — Jamie learned to quickly negotiate all of those universal problems all newlywed couples face, from leaving the toilet seat up to winning over the in-laws. All the while, her traumatic past and unresolved issues with an ex-boyfriend threatened to derail the healthiest relationship she’d ever been in. In her shocking, unflinching and hilarious memoir, Wifey 101: Everything I Got Wrong After Finding Mr. Right, Jamie fumbles her way through the newlywed game and lives to tell the tale.
