The new year is here, and so is another explosive season of Married At First Sight. Gather ’round, because we have a whole host of new contestants in Australia’s most chaotic reality show to meet. 

Yes—this means more dinner party dramas, cheating scandals, dramatic walk outs and red wine throws to look forward to. 

The show officially returns to our screens on January 30 but before that happens, we have a whole new set of contestants to meet. 

Let’s introduce you to the 10 new brides and 10 new grooms, who will be walking down the Married At First Sight aisle. 

Alyssa Barmonde

Janelle Han

Janelle is a 28-year-old beauty influencer from Western Australia. She grew up in a very strict Singaporean-Chinese family with high expectations, which mean her family must love and approve of her partner. Living with lupus also means that she’s feeling the pressure of her biological clock.
