So to prove that they are out there, we have compiled a list of couples who met while appearing on Australian reality TV shows. 

From couples who met on The Farmer Wants a Wife to Married At First Sight, here are 10 long-lasting couples who met on reality TV.

But first, watch the trailer for this year's season of Married At First Sight. Post continues below.

Back in 2010, Australian model Rachael Finch appeared on Dancing with the Stars. Michael Miziner was her partner.

"When I first saw Misha, I remember thinking 'He’s gotta be gay,'" Rachael told 9Honey. "I just thought, 'No man can be that perfect from top to toe.' I was gobsmacked."

But after working together on the show, Rachael and Michael became inseparable. Now, they have been married for five years, run a business together and have two children: Violet and Dom.

In 2017, when appearing on his own season of The Bachelor, Matty 'J' Johnson fell in love with Laura Byrne.

"The chemistry Laura and I have, it hits me every time we're together," Matty J told NW. "When I'm with her it feels so natural and I never want our dates to end. I knew she could be right for me the day after our first date – I simply couldn't fault it."

Since Laura won Matty's season of The Bachelor, the couple have gotten engaged and welcomed a daughter, Marlie-Mae. Laura is now expecting their second child at any moment.
