MAFS 2023 is in full swing and it’s an absolute shitstorm already. Here’s everything that we know about the new season of Married At First Sight from behind-the-scenes tea to intruders to the cast members who have already appeared on our screens in the past.

Will there be MAFS 2023 intruders?

Yep! The official Married At First Sight Instagram has unveiled this year’s crop of intruders.

Given that MAFS 2020 intruders Kerry Knight and Johnny Balbuziente are now engaged, I’m all about it!

Feast your eyes on the latest drama-bringers:

Evelyn Ellis

The Sydney-based influencer caused quite the stir on Big Brother UK in 2016 during her five-year stint abroad, making out with another female contestant while topless in the spa.

Fellow Big Brother UK contestant Marco Pierre White Jnr instructed the two women on how to kiss and touch.

She already has more than 64,000 followers on Instagram but it is currently on private.

Rupert Budgen

Will there be a MAFS 2023 reunion?

It’s far too early to tell, but given the viewership numbers for the MAFS 2022 Reunion Dinner Party, it’s extremely likely that we’ll see a MAFS 2023 Reunion on Channel Nine and 9Now.

There’s no better way to see the MAFS cast come back together for one final showdown, and there’s usually plenty of MAFS gossip to come out of it.

How long does MAFS 2023 go for?

If MAFS 2022 is anything to go by, we’re looking at around 37 episodes and eight weeks. Hope you’re not a commitment phobe!

You can catch up on episodes you’ve missed by watching on 9Now along with our MAFS recaps here.

Are any of the previous MAFS cast still together?

Yes! While there’s a pretty shitty success rate when it comes to this show, there are some MAFS couples who have managed to stick it out beyond millions of viewers watching their relationship unfold. Check out the MAFS couples still together right here.
