If the past nine seasons of Married at First Sight haven’t put you off finding love on reality TV, the infamous marriage experiment is now casting for 2023.

Known for being the train wreck you just can’t turn away from, MAFS has been host to a litter of polarising personalities.

Now, they’re looking for a new batch of unsuspecting singletons (see also: victims) to deliver allllll the drama in the tenth season.

So, if you’re a glutton for punishment and also looking to find Mr or Mrs Right Now, here’s how you can apply for Married at First Sight 2023.

How Can You Apply For MAFS 2023?

As per ush, the application for Married at First Sight is longer than Carolina Santos list of reasons for not liking Dion Giannarelli.

Prospective brides and grooms will have to meet the following conditions to progress through to the casting process:

  • You must be over 25 years of age on the day of application.
  • You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident for at least two years to participate.
  • You must be single and genuinely looking for love (as past seasons have indicated, this criteria is more of a suggestion than a requirement).
  • You must provide proof of identity (license, passport and/or Instagram account boasting 50K followers already).

You’ll also have to dig deep to answer a sh*t-tonne of hard hitting questions — i.e why TF are you single and what are you *really* looking for in a potential bae?

These answers will essentially assist the “experts” in matching you with your ideal partner, or the living, breathing version of your worst nightmare.

The form also urges applicants to “please be honest with your answers and complete the form to the best of your ability”. For those playing at home, this means not lying about your age, secret girlfriends or the fact you got engaged while on a second date

Technically, You Don’t Have To Apply To Win A Place On MAFS

It’s true!

In episode 155 of the So Dramatic! podcast, host Megan Pustetto revealed that 2022 groom Mitch Eynaud didn’t even apply for MAFS. Alternatively, he was scouted by producers!

One source spilled the tea to So Dramatic!, revealing that the model was scouted via Instagram, which previously boasted 10K followers.

“They messaged him… telling him he should apply.”

According to the source, Mitch responded as everyone should if a shady producer slides into your DMs: “F*ck no!”

After some prodding, he eventually folded and agreed to do the show.

However, Mitch backflipped on his decision just weeks before he was supposed to tie the knot with Ella Ding.

“Mitch actually backed out of the wedding a couple of weeks beforehand because he did not want to do it,” the source said. “[Producers] begged him to do it. His mates then convinced him and said it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

Oh, how we wish we had a time machine…
