Married at First Sight NZ still searching for 'typical Kiwi blokes'

goss 08/06/2018

Season two of Married At First Sight New Zealand is asking guys to "put that beer down, stop watching footy" and tie the knot with a complete stranger.

Applications for the reality TV hit are still open, and the creators are especially keen to hear from more "typical Kiwi blokes".

A current advertisement for the show asks single males, "How's your love life? Bad?" before running through some of the classic pitfalls of life as a bachelor.

"Too much time with your mother? Swiping right not working?" the voiceover asks.

Luckily, a solution has been offered up: marry the person of your dreams - as determined by a team of matchmakers - who you'll meet for the first time at the altar.

The first season of Married At First Sight NZ captivated audiences and MediaWorks has stated applications this year have been coming in hot, adding that wanting more men isn't unusual.

"Typically, more women tend to apply for this show than men, and that is consistent across the globe," a MediaWorks spokesperson said.

"We want some more typical Kiwi blokes to get off the sofa and consider this show as a great opportunity to meet someone special."

Interested Kiwi dudes can apply for Married At First Sight NZ here - and yes, applications are still open for women, too.
