MAFS 2024: How this year's stars are cashing in on their newfound fame

From podcasts to clothing ranges and public appearances, here's what's happening next for our fave 2024 MAFS stars.

It's now been two weeks since this year's Married At First Sight came to an end and many of the participants now look set to make a fortune following their rise to fame.

From podcasts and public appearances to subscription-based websites and merchandise, here's how the cast is planning on cashing in.

What the MAFS stars look set to do next

Personal appearances

In recent weeks, Tristan and Sara have been leading the personal appearances and have been booked to party and meet fans in clubs in both Darwin and Melbourne.

Tristan, who worked as an event manager at Manly Wharf Hotel prior to the show, is now taking bookings across Australia as a DJ too, with Lauren Dunn also making appearances that are due to continue in Darwin and Melbourne this week.

Cast members can make up to $3,000 per appearance for just a couple of hours of work.

Clothing range

Lucinda Light Tribe”

After becoming this year's biggest star, Lucinda Light has already announced “Lucinda Light Tribe” - a $30-a-month subscription-based platform where she'll offer fans newsletters, live Zoom sessions and online seminars on self-development.

Fashion and beauty influencing

According to our source Lauren, Sara, and Jade are already lining up brand collaborations and sponsorships with different fashion and beauty brands once they get access to their Instagram accounts back. The cast are all currently still logged out until the show finishes airing in the UK.

TV and radio

Yahoo Lifestyle understands participants Lauren Dunn and Collins Christian are both keen on exploring future careers, with Lauren tipped for more TV appearances.



Whereas no stars from this year's season have joined OnlyFans yet, cast members have long speculated that Tori and Jack will make one. An insider claims “Tori would often joke about it during filming”.

Speaking events

Prior to Married At First Sight, Richard Sauerman was known as “The Brand Guy” and regularly booked as a public speaker and consultant. Yahoo Lifestyle understands the 62-year-old plans on still doing this but has increased his rates following his rise to fame.
