We Have Our First Look At The ‘Married At First Sight’ Season 11 Cast

These are the couples who will be meeting at the altar in 2024.

Reality TV aficionados, unite. Our favourite chaotic dating show, Married At First Sight is imminently releasing season 11, and we can barely contain our excitement.

With season 10 still fresh in our minds, no doubt the latest iteration will be brimming with explosive dinner parties, emotional commitment ceremonies, and a healthy dose of drama sprinkled on top. 

So who is set to grace our screens in 2024?

An early sneak peek revealed several female contestants enjoying a cocktail party together. The Daily Mail also reported that the program will feature the “oldest ever groom”.

News of the Australian cast comes shortly after the UK branch of the series announced it had cast its first-ever transgender bride. Early this week, Married At First Sight UK released their lineup of brides. Among them was 29-year-old Ella, who’s described as a “blonde bombshell with a fiery personality” looking for “a king to match her queen energy.”

In her introduction video shared to the show’s Instagram page, Ella introduced herself as transgender, saying, “I was born a boy, I’ve transitioned. That’s why I’m very open-minded and just have a lot of fun because I’ve had such a shitty life.”

“I deserve love because I’ve gone through a lot as a person, and I feel like I deserve to be happy with someone who loves me for me and accepts me because I am fabulous,” she added.

Will the Australian franchise follow suit with this kind of diversity? Well, according to a statement from Channel Nine, we’re going to be seeing more diversity than previous seasons.

“Season 11 of Married at First Sight will bring a fresh take on the series with one of the most diverse cast of brides and grooms, a more age diverse mix including our oldest ever participant, and a same sex couple,” a statement from Nine read. “Together, these loveable, relatable, everyday couples will bare their souls in the name of love.”

Now that Channel 9 have released the names of the brides and grooms, we expect there to be one same sex couple, with just nine brides and 11 grooms on the line up.

Without further ado, here are the brides and grooms for this year’s cast of MAFS Australia.
