Married at First Sight Australia contestant explains the money they received during TV show


Married At First Sight Australia's second season bride Clare has explained to a fan the payment each person received while taking part in the TV social experiment.
In the now deleted comments on her Instagram page, Clare (who was paired up with Jono) explained to a fan who asked whether they get paid to be on Married at First Sight.
“No you don’t get paid a wage, you get a $110 per week but they don’t contribute to your rent for the house they are filming in or the dates they want you to go on,” she wrote.
“I work in sales and it had a big impact on my work as you can’t just ‘go to work normally’ as they claim. Doing the show probably cost me thousands in lost revenue. That’s why whenever someone writes ‘they just do it for the money’ I have a good laugh!”
The new season is already being advertised in Australia, where the show will have their first same-sex wedding.
