Married At First Sight this year was, to put it bluntly, absolute trash buuut it also had almost 2 million of us tuning in.

You may have heard that the latest season was also sent to air in the US, and the general consensus has been- T O O  F A K E.

So they’re planning to do things a little different for Season 8, 2021…

I’m honestly obsessed with her, she’s exactly what this show needs to inject a little bit of life into it!

According to Pedestrian.TV Nine execs have revealed that “zoom casting process uncovered the most genuine cast yet, making sure next year more than ever, is about finding love, not fame,” which is exactly what Aussie MAFS needs… some authenticity!
