The show's concept can be described as a string of arranged marriages of sorts, where two strangers meet at the altar for the first time and tie the knot in front of their family and friends.
But the lavish weddings are only the start of the emotional rollercoaster for the cast (and us as viewers). As the couples embark on honeymoons, move in together and meet the other pairs at the infamous dinner parties, the social experiment truly unfolds to test the theory of whether you can you fall in love after getting married at first sight.
While the 10th season is very much in the early stages of production, there are already snippets of information surfacing about what to expect from MAFS in 2023.
Who Is In The Cast of MAFS 2023?
Channel 9 has all but confirmed the new cast of MAFS, but some very telling pap pics published by Daily Mail Australia seem to give away the identities of some of the brides.
Melinda Willis is a flight attendant-turned-beautician from Brisbane. She already boasts over 150,000 Instagram followers, counting the likes of former MAFS cast members Jules Robinson, Joshua Pihlak, Jason Engler and KC Osborne as fans.
Over on her TikTok account that has over 29,000 followers, Willis is often seen dancing, doing her makeup or miming to the latest trending sound. She has some experience in front of the media, after competing in a beauty pageant 'Mrs Ocean Australia'.
Tahnee Cook is a 27-year-old content creator from Sydney with more than six years experience within the social media and digital marketing space.
A look at her official website reveals she's been part of social media campaigns for several hair and beauty brands, and an appearance on MAFS may very well boost her rising influencer status. She also co-hosted the podcast called The Like Us Girls with digital creator, Tonia Stapleton from 2019 to 2020.
Hailing from Sydney's Northern Beaches, Alyssa Barmonde is a single mother and baker looking for love on the show.
She specialises in bespoke buttercream cakes and has updated her business's Instagram account bio to say she's not taking any new orders. Here's wondering if she'll be whipping up her own wedding cake for her MAFS nuptials.
"Bronte is an amazing chick. She speaks her mind and isn't afraid of confrontation," an apparent friend of the brunette told the publication.
It's confirmed childcare worker Claire Nomarhas is appearing on MAFS 2023 after she was recently spotted filming the hen's party scenes in Sydney.
With her social media accounts on a tight lockdown, there's not too much information floating around about the brunette, but a high school friend has referred to her as a "firecracker".
Janelle Han already has a bit of a profile thanks to her over 500k following on TikTok.
The makeup artist of Chinese and Singaporean descent has previously spoken about how she put her energy into her social media work after a breakup, and it seems to have paid off.
“I actually ended things with my boyfriend, and so a week later, I was like, f... this. I’m going to focus on me and focus on my career," she told Perth Now in March. "And I’m like, I’m going to be selfish. I’m going to bust out some content.
"I made a few Squid Game videos and I think they got like 40 million views... that’s what really made me."
Sandy Jawanda is a Melbourne-based dental therapist and the first Indian bride to appear on Married At First Sight Australia.
According to the website of her clinic, Plenty Smiles, Jawanda "enjoys spending quality time with friends and family" and "loves animals and is passionate about reducing our impact on the environment".
She runs the practice with her two younger sisters who also work in dentistry and oral health.
Makeup artist Caitlin McConville will be bringing her bold beauty looks to MAFS.
The 27-year-old Queenslander already has over 17,000 followers on her personal Instagram account, and her business page indicated she's "currently not taking books" (because she's filming, of course).
According to Daily Mail Australia, Seed relocated from London to Australia and is the co-owner of competition and lucky dip website, Meta Competitions.
Jesse Burford is a regular at other people's weddings, but now he's ready for his own. Based in Perth, he's a marriage celebrant as well as the vocalist of a heavy music band, MC and quiz host.
"I'm here to deliver ceremonies that are real and down-to-earth, fun and engaging, and strive to have you and every one of your guests saying, 'Wow, that was the best wedding I’ve ever been to!'" he says on his official website.
According to Daily Mail Australia, Cam Woods is a Darwin-based tradie originally from Grafton, NSW. He loves travelling and documenting his adventures on social media.
Dan Hunjas is a father-of-one from the Gold Coast, and according to So Dramatic, he has a background in digital marketing.
According to the official website of his marketing agency, Hunjas is not all work and no play, as he enjoys dabbling in several hobbies in his spare time.
"A regular in the gym, Dan focusses a lot on his health and fitness.. A healthy body supports a healthy mind," reads a blurb on the site.
"And once the sun goes down, Dan can often be found at one of his favourite restaurant and bar locations on the Gold Coast, socialising and enjoying the company of his amazing friends and colleagues."
Hailing from Sydney's Northern Beaches, Duncan James is an insurance worker on the hunt for his special person on MAFS.
