Surprising detail in MAFS 2023 trailer revealed: 'Spoilers'

After months of anticipation, Channel Nine finally unveiled the first official trailer for next year’s season of Married At First Sight over the weekend.

The two-minute teaser video features brief glimpses of the season ten participants in their wedding attire, as well as shots of multiple people in tears and expert Mel Schilling looking shocked.

One rather dramatic scene in the trailer 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 very romantic 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.”

‘We threw ourselves into the deep end’

This isn’t the first time the network has done this, after real-life married couple and former X Factor finalists Jess and Matt Price had a starring role in last year’s promo.

The cinematic clip showed several brides and grooms running around Sydney’s busy streets on New Year’s Eve before Jess and Matt met on a rooftop and shared a romantic kiss surrounded by fireworks.

The pair of musicians took to Instagram shortly after the trailer aired on TV to reveal that they were cast by Channel Nine to star in the season nine promo.


“We’re tragic MAFS fans, so when Channel Nine hit us up saying they needed a real-life couple to kiss on camera (coz Covid) and asked if we’d be up to putting on our Hollywood acting shoes to re-enact some 50 Shades wedding vibes for their epic new promo… We threw ourselves into the deep end,” they wrote.

“Big love to the incredible crew that brought this together and for all the ridiculous fun and laughs we had on set shooting this.”
