Just when you thought you couldn’t get enough, we’re getting an extra dose of ‘Married At First Sight’, but not as we know it!
The reality TV rollercoaster is gearing up for a 10-part spin-off series, fronted by one of our favourite experts.
John Aiken announced the brand new digital series titled ‘MAFS Diaries with John Aiken’, and oh, this sounds JUICY.
“Take a look back in time as I give you my thoughts on @MAFS through the past 10 seasons,” he wrote to Instagram.
“I’LL BREAK DOWN EVERYTHING FROM COUPLES AND MEMORABLE MOMENTS TO THE MAJOR SURPRISES OVER THE YEARS!”
For those unfamiliar with John Aiken, he's one of the three relationship experts who guide these brave (or is it crazy?) singles through their blind marriages.
In the teaser video of the first episode, John looks back at the very first season of what has become one of the most talked about Australian reality TV shows.
“No one on the experiment, in season one, knew what they were getting themselves into.”
“THERE WAS ALSO THAT SENSE OF FRESHNESS ABOUT THE COUPLES.”
“We really had no idea from this very first season that there would be a couple here that not only fell in love but had a child,” John mentioned of Zoe Hendrix and Alex Garner from season one.
Zoe and Alex welcomed their now 6-year-old daughter Harper Rose just one year after leaving the experiment in 2015.
“IT WAS AMAZING THAT IT COULD WORK.”
MAFS has given us some unforgettable TV moments and even led to a few love stories that stuck.
We’re talking about the likes of Martha and Michael (season 6), Bryce and Melissa (season 8), and this year’s Tahnee and Ollie (season 10).
But, let's be honest, it has also been the breeding ground for some, ahem, strong personalities.... Yeah, Harrison Boon (season 10), and Olivia Frazer (season 9), we're looking at you!
John Aiken will be chatting about all the highs, and lows of each season and hopefully dish on the most scandalous behind-the-scenes gossip too!
Unfortunately, the show is currently only available on Nine Australia’s website, but all our fingers and toes are crossed that we’ll get a chance to lay our eyes on it here in NZ before the 2024 season kicks off!
