Married at First Sight

• Brides and grooms will be expertly matched in this social experiment

Married at First Sight’s eighth season is set to return Monday, February 22, at 7.30pm on Nine and 9Now, when the first set of MAFS brides and grooms walk down the aisle.

Brides and grooms will be expertly matched in this social experiment, and their relationships will be fast-tracked through challenges and romantic hurdles that haven’t been seen before in any season of Married at First Sight.

Each couple on Married at First Sight will meet for the very first time when they walk down the aisle on their wedding day, and their relationship will be under the microscope as Australia watches them experience the highs and lows of marriage at full speed.

Following the Married at First Sight Reunion 

This isn’t the first MAFS content of the year with the Married at First Sight Grand Reunion airing over two nights before the Australian Open kicked off.

The reunion brought back some of the show’s biggest names back to talk about what they’ve been up to since they left the experiment. 

Returning from Season 5 (2018) was Dean Wells, Tracy Jewel, Ashley Irvin, Sarah Roza, Charlene Perera, Jo McPharlin, Nasser Sultan, Ryan Gallagher, and Troy Delmege.

From Season 6 (2019) was Cyrell Paule, Ines Basic, Jessika Power, Martha Kalifatidis, Michael Brunelli and Mike Gunner. And from Season 7 (2020), Lizzie Sobinoff and Sebastian Guilhaus returned.

Part one of the two-part special featured all the returning participants sitting back down at the infamous dinner party table and the tell-all confession couch. In part two of the reunion, the group joined Married at First Sight relationship experts John Aiken and Mel Schilling who caught up with each participant to see what they’ve been doing since the experiment. 

The Married at First Sight special event had 866,000 on the Sunday night followed by 781,000 viewers the following evening.
