A former 'Married At First Sight Australia' contestant has taken to her blog to shed light on the programme and how every moment was actually filmed.
Bride Simone, who was "married" to Xavier on the show last year, has explained how the second season of the Australian TV series was truly shot, describing the multiple takes and the fact her groom never applied to be on the show.
She writes on her website 'The Dating Journal';
"I walked down the aisle four times, said my vows three times, and we kissed at the altar twice."
"My faith in the 'match-making' process dwindled away somewhat when my TV husband shared with me immediately post-wedding ceremony that he hadn't dated for years and never actually applied for the experiment."
She then goes on to explain that she wasn't allowed to leave her TV marriage because it wouldn't have made sense to the story that was playing out on TV, where they had looked like a well-matched, happy couple.
Eventually, Simone and Xavier went their separate ways on the final episode.
So far only two couples have successfully stayed together through the three seasons of the Australian show, with season one's couple recently giving birth to their first baby.
