She even teased him, in fact, by teasing that their concerned friends were checking on them to figure out whether they were still doing okay after so much time on the air together.

“How are you doing on day three?” she asked him, and when he said he was feeling good, she added: “People are checking in with me.

Mark took a defiant stance as he replied: “Listen, Art [Moore, producer] told me ‘No more of this stuff that people just play down the middle. Tell the truth.'”

Mark did get off to a rocky start this week, though, as he caught the attention of a few viewers after the couple discussed the ending to the second season of The White Lotus.
