MAFS groom Collins Christian had a short but very memorable stint on the reality show, coining a few catchphrases in his time — from "what a day!" to "she's a top, top lady!" And in case you've ever been desperate to wear those phrases emblazoned across your chest, then good news for you — he's now released a t-shirt line.

Announcing the new merch line to his 18.8k followers, the post was met with over 200 likes and nearly 40 comments. There are five designs in total, with three of the slogan tees also featuring a "Collins" signature below the phrase. The slogan tees include the phrases: "What a day," "I just got married...what a day," and "She's a top, top lady".

Two of the other designs feature an image of Collins on his wedding day with the slogan "what a day" underneath it, and a mock KFC logo with a photo of Collins' face and the slogan "CFC".

In a statement to Yahoo Lifestyle, the MAFS groom said the response to the line has been "kinda heartwarming".

"It's actually doing alright numbers - Better than I thought," Collins said. "I don't know the exact number but the manufacturer tells me there are consistent orders which is pretty cool but also kinda heartwarming.

"The amount of times I get told 'What a day' wherever I go and for all the people who now have it as part of their's pretty cool for sure."


"This is rather embarrassing," one person commented. "What a joke using the show for money and using your gross behaviour and putting it on a t-shirt,' someone else said.

"Wonder if Jack is bringing out any Muzzle your woman merch," one person said. "Are you joking?" someone else asked.

Collins' ex (if you can call her that), Natalie Parham also left a skull emoji under someone else's comment saying, "lol".

However, there were some supportive comments in the fray.

"All the best legend x," MAFS icon herself, Lucinda Light, commented. "Dude, that's awesome!" former groom Ben Walters said.


"Congrats. Ignore the negative comments," another fan said. "These are brilliant 🤣 what a t-shirt 🤣," someone else said.
