We’ve seen rumours and reports of which guys and gals will be walking down the aisle in the next season of Married at First Sight and now Channel Nine has officially dropped the names and pics of who’ll be bringing the drama.
With the popular reality series expected to premiere on February 3, the network has released official photos of this year’s participants.
The show has given viewers a glimpse of 11 new brides and nine grooms, with more expected to be revealed in the coming weeks.
Have at it…

The tea: Often described as “bold” and “bossy”, Natasha has a thing for older men and same, sis.
Job: Strength coach.
The tea: One half of MAFS’ first ever same-sex couple, Amanda marries Tash and sadly receives backlash from her disapproving, conservative family.
Job: Logistics investigator
The tea: This brainy babe has her fair share of trust issues, having been cheated on by two ratbag partners in the past.
Job: Pharmacy manager
The tea: Like many, Vanessa experienced bullying in high school and unfortunately it’s had an affect on her adult relationships as she struggles with low self-esteem and has a habit of rejecting men before they reject her.

The tea: Stacey has two kiddos from a previous engagement. She’s hoping to bag a bloke who can handle her feisty personality.
Job: Marine biology student
The tea: She’s been single and ready to mingle for five years now and she’s ready to find that special someone.
The tea: Single mama of two-year-old twin boys.
Her ex-hubby left her for another woman when the twins were just six-weeks-old (ugh), and she’s looking for a man who’s down to be a father figure to her kids.
The tea: Identifies as sexually fluid and has dated both men and women.
The tea: She’s had eight previous partners, seven of which have cheated on her. Nice, huh?
Mishel is understandably on the hunt for someone who is faithful and loyal.
The tea: Apparently the dating pool is teeny tiny in Perth so she’s on a nation-wide hunt for a hubby to appease her traditional Serbian folks.

Apparently he also has controversial views so good luck with that one, girls.

Let’s hope he can last the duration of MAFS!

As if that wasn’t enough, his next partner left him for the neighbour.
Hm, I’m beginning to see a pattern here.
Job: Company director
The tea: Well well well, another single dad. Michael has a toddler son and became a millionaire through his family’s business at age 24 so whoever he ends up with will likely share in the fam fortune. Ka-ching!
