MAFS groom Brent spotted with former bride Alana at party

A number of this year's MAFS stars got together over the weekend for a night out in Sydney's Double Bay with former participant Alana Lister also seen enjoying herself with Brent Vitiello.

Brent, who is partnered with Tamara Djordjevic on the show, seemingly organised the party, which was held at Sinaloa, the venue he manages.

Jack Millar, Al Perkins and Selin Mengu were also seen at the venue, while Ella Ding and Domenica Calarco were also spotted out in Sydney together.

Alana appeared to be quite close to Brent with sources at the restaurant saying Brent headed outside to greet Alana upon her arrival with the pair looking flirty.


Given the fact Alana is based in Queensland, it's unclear if she flew down especially to see Brent.

Tamara, also based in Queensland, didn't make the night out with the pair not believed to make it to the end of the show together.

According to New Idea, sources have suggested Brent and Tamara simply wanted to "boost their profiles" and made an agreement to stay together for as long as possible.

An insider suggested the pair's behaviour "raised eyebrows" among their fellow participants.

"Once everyone was able to get to know them better, it was clear they were the sort who crave the spotlight," they claimed.

On Sunday night's episode, Brent was left shocked when Tamara admitted she wasn't sure whether he was "good enough" for her, despite Brent saying they were having fun together.

The pair chose to stay, but who knows how long they will be able to last on the show.

Alana was paired with Jason Engler on the show last year with the two making it to the end of the experiment, but broke up soon after.

In an exclusive interview with Yahoo Lifestyle, Alana confirmed video of Jason, along with co-stars Georgia Fairweather and Johnny Balbuziente, making fun of bisexual groom Liam Cooper, was the reason for their split.

"Well, obviously the controversy [of the video] was something that ended our relationship, so it impacted me in the way that Jason and I are not together anymore," she explained. "We were never able to get past that controversy.

"So, it obviously affected me in a big way and it's unfortunate that had to happen, but I know I tried to get through it as much as I could, but we never made it."

The reality star added she was glad it happened sooner rather than later, and that she realised she no longer wanted to be with him early in the relationship.

"It's sad, but those things happen, but just take the positives out of it... You get the information and you just move forward," she said.
