During episode 16 of Married at First Sight Australia 2022, Matt Ridley revealed that he used to have pink hair once, and we have the EPIC pics to prove it.

While sitting in a car with his bride Kate Laidlaw, the ever-positive Matt admitted that he used to don the colour of her dress on top of his head.

As soon as we heard it, we knew we had to see the proof and luckily, we are able to get our hands on some pics!

Not only did we get the above photos, we were also able to source some other hectic throwbacks of Matt during his high school days, sporting a spiky early aughts’ mullett with blonde highlights. Bless.

Who Is Matt Ridley, the Former Pink Haired Groom on Married at First Sight Australia 2022?

Married at First Sight’s Matt — who is best known for his chicken Twistie breath — headed into the experiment to find his happily ever after. Unfortunately, he was met with, well, Kate.

The 39-year-old Queenslander has already been married in the past, with him and his ex-wife going through years of devastatingly unsuccessful IVF treatments.

After not being able to have their own children, the couple turned to foster care, in which they cared for 27 kids during their relationship. Ah-mazing!

The stress, however, eventually took a toll, leading Matt and his ex to call time on their marriage after seven years.

The law clerk has been single ever since…until now.

While we’re not sure if he and Kate will make their fake TV marriage work, we’re certain that he could pull off pink hair once again.
