MAFS' Olivia reveals exactly how much she was paid on the show

If you’ve ever wondered just how much participants are paid to appear on Married At First Sight, Olivia Frazer has provided the answer.

The season nine bride answered plenty of fan questions on Instagram earlier this week, including one about what she earned during her time on the show.

Olivia claimed that contestants were paid “$1,100 per week” during filming, which took place over a few months in Sydney.

Her comments come shortly after fellow bride Domenica Calarco went live on TikTok and claimed that she was paid “$150 a day”, an amount another bride anonymously confirmed to Yahoo Lifestyle.


“I still had bills, had to pay my rent, and I had to pay, you know, whatever,” Domenica remarked.

Appearing on the Kyle & Jackie O Show earlier this year, Domenica said she did not get paid enough for what she went through and her salary was “about minimum wage”.

‘It’s rubbish’

Season five MAFS star Telv Williams also previously claimed that he was also paid $150 a day during filming and they had to purchase their own clothes for the dinner parties and commitment ceremonies.

“You gotta do all your own hair and makeup,” he said. “You gotta do your own dress, buy your own clothes.

“You get paid $150 a day, tax-free. It's s**t, it's rubbish. Everything is off your own f**king back.”

Meanwhile, former TV groom Nasser Sultan explained to Now To Love that contestants “get a per diem” on the show, so they’re receiving money for the cost of living expenses instead of being “paid for work”.

Olivia’s Instagram Q&A comes shortly after she joined OnlyFans, earning a whopping $10,000 in her first 12 hours on the adult subscription-based website.

“I am very proud to be an OnlyFans creator, I’ve always thought OnlyFans was awesome,” she shared on social media.

“I’ve never shamed anybody for being on OnlyFans. Anything else is a misconception brought to you by MAFS producers.”

While she refused to disclose how much she’s earned on OnlyFans so far, calling that “tacky”, she did confirm that her subscriber count is currently sitting at 2,900. At $14.99 per month, this means Olivia is making a minimum of $43,471 per month, plus extra money for personalised content.
