“Mate, these relationship experts don’t know shit!”
After debuting in 2015, Married at First Sight has captivated audiences around Australia proving indeed that romance sells. Or more importantly, that drama sells as the show has an abysmal success rate of matching partners.
Erin Bateman and Bryce Mohr are the only couple still together after six seasons, which has fans speculating if any of it is actually real.
“Mark and Ning keep coming back week after week, yet they haven’t sealed the deal. So they’re either madly in love and waiting for their actual wedding night, or they’re both milking extra screen time. Gee, I wonder which it is?” asked longtime MAFS watcher, Trish Sanders (33).
Probably the biggest tip off this show is all about drama came back in 2017 when Deb – who wanted a big, dark Polynesian man – was paired up with skinny, pale John.
“What kind of relationship “expert” stuffs up a detail like that?” questioned Trish. “You order a pizza online and someone delivers a ham sandwich. It’s crazy.”
Trish is not the only person to notice something not being true about the show, with the ‘Psychologists’ having to change their title to ‘Relationship Expert.’ This was basically the Psychology Council of NSW saying, ‘Your methods are a crock of shit.’
Despite the show becoming more and more ridiculous as each season progresses, Trish is still an avid watcher of the show
“I think they should stop pretending it’s serious and embrace the fact that everyone just wants to be on TV. They should have someone return from the grave like on ‘Days Of Our Lives’. Oh, and they’re a twin. With an eye patch. And they’re Austrian Royalty!”
Regardless of the shows less than 2% success rate at pairing couples, viewers will no doubt still tune in in the hopes of seeing what we all want to see, true lov… drama.
