MAFS' Ines Basic reveals truth about returning to the show in 2023

She’s arguably one of the most iconic participants to appear on Married At First Sight after her memorable stint in 2019, and now fans are convinced that Ines Basic is returning for next year’s season.

Channel Nine recently released a trailer for season ten of the reality show which features a very similar-looking bride posing in her wedding dress, with social media users quick to point out that she is Ines’ doppelgänger.

“Am I the only one who thought that was Ines?” one person commented, which quickly racked up plenty of likes and replies.

“I did as well,” someone responded, while another added, “I thought the same”.

“You're not the only one. I literally looked three times,” a third wrote, followed by a different user who said, “I totally saw Ines too”.


When approached for comment, Ines confirmed that it isn’t her in the trailer and she isn’t returning.

Yahoo Lifestyle can instead reveal that the brunette bride is Bronte Schofield, a Perth-based micro-influencer who is tipped to be even more controversial than Ines.

Sources say that the beauty business owner is going to be part of one of the most explosive pairings in MAFS history.

Hidden detail in new trailer

As well as a glimpse of the season ten participants, the new MAFS trailer features a very surprising detail.

One rather dramatic scene in the teaser shows a couple meeting for the first time at the aisle and holding hands. The video then changes from black and white to full colour as they share a kiss and rose petals fall from the ceiling.


However, Yahoo Lifestyle can reveal that the handsome groom and blushing bride won’t actually be a part of MAFS this season as they are actors who were simply cast for the video.

A source tells us: “Channel Nine doesn't want to reveal which couples are matched together so to prevent spoilers they hire actors for the kissing shots.”
