“Nine’s real love phenomenon is bigger than ever,” the video announces.

“Now, television’s biggest show turns up the love in a new season that’s guaranteed to be on everyone’s lips.

“Get ready for the most handsome new grooms and breathtaking new brides we’ve ever hitched”

Three men are shown rocking up to their bachelor party, including two wearing blazers and one wearing a stylish button-up shirt.

Four women are also featured in the teaser heading to their bachelorette party, with one dressed in a very sparkly outfit.


According to Daily Mail, one of the grooms is influencer Brent Vitiello who boasts 51k followers and recently moved back to Australia from Dubai.

The publication claims that Brent is “well-known in the Sydney party scene” and used to work in photography and hospitality.

The new trailer comes shortly after MAFS expert Mel Schilling returned to Australia after featuring on MAFS UK, as well as Alessandra Rampolla who had been living in Puerto Rico since last season wrapped filming.

Channel Nine also recently announced the first three celebrities set to face Lord Alan Sugar in the Celebrity Apprentice boardroom next year.

Motivational speaker Turia Pitt and radio duo Will McMahon and Woody Whitelaw will be competing on season six of the reality show.

“Lord Sugar will see you in 2022,” the announcement read on Instagram alongside a gallery of the stars.

Reigning champion Shaynna Blaze expressed her excitement by commenting “fantastic” on the casting announcement, followed by former competitor Martha Kalifatidis who replied with a series of clapping hand emojis.

“So excited to see Turia Pitt working up a storm,” one fan wrote, while another added, “Look forward to watching.”
