MAFS' Melinda completely unrecognisable in resurfaced snaps
The Married At First Sight bride looked very different in 2015.
Melinda Willis has been the centre of attention on this year’s season of Married At First Sight, with the outspoken 32-year-old fighting openly with Harrison Boon from the very first dinner party. While she’s known for her perfectly styled blonde hair and eye-catching fashion sense, she hasn’t always looked this way.
Before she started her successful beauty business and established her influencer brand online, the reality TV contestant had dark brunette locks.
In photos shared on Instagram in 2015, the self-described "9.5 out of 10" looks completely different. In one snap, she poses with a mystery man during a work Christmas party.
She has her wavy brunette locks swept to one side while wearing a modest black dress and a pair of nude flats.

In another Instagram post, Melinda is seen showing off her tan from City Tropics Tanning. Her straight dark locks frame her face as she takes a selfie.
Her eyebrows are defined and she opted for dark, dramatic eye makeup. For a pop of colour, she added a simple pink lip.
The Queenslander was also seen modelling for a sportswear brand, ON1E Clothing. Wearing a top that reads “BRAINS, BEAUTY, BOOTY” and a pair of black leggings, the star was all smiles.
Her toned midriff was on display as her long, straightened hair fell to one side.
“What’s better than a girl with BRAINS BEAUTY & BOOTY?! Nothing!” the clothing company wrote in the caption. “Shoutout to @melinda.richelle for her constant support overseas! Give her a follow!”
Followers labelled her outfit as “super cute” and “a must” have.
Melinda's heated spat with Alyssa Barmonde
This comes after Yahoo Lifestyle revealed a major incident that took place while filming the commitment ceremony that aired on Sunday night.
Photos obtained depict Lyndall Grace, Alyssa Barmonde and Melinda Willis having a very tense chat in the car park of their apartment building before travelling to film the commitment ceremony.
At first, Lyndall and Alyssa waited together as their producer spoke with their driver before Melinda joined them and appeared to have some strong words for Alyssa.

Alyssa responded whilst looking very animated, but producers quickly intervened and put the girls into their vehicles.
Despite the apparent conflict, none of this made it to air and the episode never suggested there was any tension between the brides.
