Married at First Sight Australia 2022 has finally drawn to a close after what feels like seventy years, so now it’s time for the cast to take stock of what’s really important. Their Instagram followings.

Before the season started, we went and stalked every single cast member (so you didn’t have to) and found out exactly just how many followers each participant had before their five minutes of fame began.

And look, if this was a competition (which we absolutely know it is) everybody’s favourite KWEEN, Domenica Calarco, would be the winner without question.
