Season 2 contestant Simone Lee Brennan posted a scathing blog about the show, calling the experience “fucked”.
Married at First Sight Australia is about to enter its fourth season later this month, and former contestant Simone Lee Brennan has shed some light on what the experience is really like.
After appearing on Season 2 of the show last year and marrying Xavier Forsberg, Simone took to her blog The Dating Journal to talk about the real reality surrounding the show.
“I walked down the aisle four times, said my vows three times, and we kissed at the altar twice,” Simone wrote.
“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.”
Simone further elaborated on her “doomed” marriage, citing the moment she knew it just wasn’t going to work out.
“It became clear as day when my TV husband took great pleasure in asking the sound crew, camera crew, and producers about potential front-of-house sports presenting gigs. Truth be told, he just wasn’t that into me, the experiment, or sharing his humble man cave with a random single girl. He didn’t want a bar of it.”
