A pregnancy, a wedding and a whole lot of feuds: What the cast of MAFS 2019 are doing now.

The last season of Married At First Sight ended six months ago and… a lot has happened in the lives of the cast since.

Comparatively, I’ve watched 27 Netflix series, been on a run and have definitely not found myself pregnant to another reality TV star after a couple of months together. Boring.

The MAFS cast have had said pregnancy, dated a man who peed in his own mouth, created social media feuds to stay relevant and now it has been reported that the most stable couple from the show are on the rocks.

Like we said, it’s been a lot. Here’s what’s been going on for the stars of Married At First Sight 2019.


Cyrell Paule’s onscreen marriage to Nic Jovanovic didn’t work out, but in March she began dating another reality TV show star, Love Island‘s Eden Dally.

In August, the couple announced they were 12-weeks pregnant.

The 31-year-old said “it was not planned” but that they “can’t wait to raise a child together”.

Cyrell explained to New Idea she shared the pregnancy with Eden, 26, via text message, who was initially surprised at the news but says he always supported his girlfriend.

Earlier this month they revealed they were having a boy.

The couple also shared the bullying and social media trolling they have dealt with since announcing their pregnancy on World Mental Health Day.

“People tell me they want me to have a miscarriage and they attack my unborn baby,” Cyrell told the Daily Telegraph.

“We get messages from people saying ‘I hope you have a miscarriage’ and ‘you’re about to give birth to a half-black monkey’.

“I recently told Eden I’m at breaking point and he took my phone from me because it was just getting to that stage… the pregnancy has been stressful.”

Cyrell is reportedly due in February.

Martha and Michael.

Martha Kalifatidis and Michael Brunelli are still going strong after meeting at the altar of their not-actually-legally-binding wedding, surprising everyone but especially the ‘experts’.

One year, my dear.

Since the show, the couple have travelled together and taken part in a public feud with Sunrise co-host Kochie.

While Michael returned to his career as a primary school teacher, Martha is now an influencer and beauty YouTuber, who posts very on-brand videos like ‘Kardashian Makeover Glam Makeup Tutorial’ on her channel.


Cam and Jules.

Aw, guys. While fruit bowls were being thrown and cheaters were doing a’cheatin, Cam and Jules were the shining light of love MAFS needed.

It worked so well Cameron Merchant, 35, and Jules Robinson, 37, decided to get married for real. Originally set to take place in mid-September to mark their one year anniversary, the couple postponed the wedding.

Jules told Yahoo Lifestyle planning the event so quickly was “too much, too soon”.

“It was a romantic gesture and we booked a venue on that and ended up losing our $5,000 deposit but I just thought – yeah that’s not going to happen anymore.”

She said they were planning on tying the knot before the end of the year, but according to a New Idea ‘insider’ the whole thing could now be on the rocks.

Woman’s Day published photos of Jules crying in Sydney last week, claiming she and Cam had ‘hit a rough patch’.

NW magazine also reported on Jules and Cam’s ‘wedding crisis’ but for a totally different reason: Their insider claimed the couple have moved the wedding from the Hunter Valley to somewhere easier for Nine cameras to film, booking a central Sydney venue for November 16. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯



Elizabeth Sobinoff drew a pretty short straw on MAFS, being paired with cheater Sam Ball.

Since leaving MAFS, Elizabeth signed to an influencer agency but still regularly shares content from her day job at a jewellery store.


For a while, Billy Vincent seemed to disappear.

Then this year’s season of The Bachelor began airing and he was back, being photographed on a date with contestant Nichole Wood. Like his onscreen marriage, that didn’t work out either with Nichole confirming on Instagram they were “better as friends”.

“We just decided that it’s not really a romantic thing, it’s more of a friendship thing,” she said.

In late September Billy, 28, claimed he was left unconscious after being attacked and “king hit” by his housemate after an argument about excessive partying.

The reality star explained in a video on the Daily Mail that the housemate had recently lost ownership of his dogs, and Billy believed his housemate’s ‘partying’ was the reason why they were taken.

“My roommate was having a party at 12 in the day. It was really, really early. And I basically confronted him [and told him] this was the issue that took his dogs away,” Billy said.

“He has coward punched me. So he king hit me from the side. Completely out of the blue he’s just snapped.”

Billy said he was knocked out cold to start off with and after coming to, he felt blood pouring down his face. He required stitches.

The housemate was arrested and pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm in Ballina Local Court on Thursday September 26.

He will return to court for sentencing on November 13.


MAFS didn’t work out for Susie Pearl and her ‘husband’ Billy, but Susie wasn’t too upset, announcing a relationship with NRL player (and mouth pee-er) Todd Carney in February.

But after eight months of PDA Instagrams, both Susie and Todd totally wiped all traces of each other from their social media accounts earlier in October indicating a breakup.

Susie confirmed the split in a Insta story video, saying she’d been “a bit sh*t”.

“Just a little bit of an update on me. So it’s been a bit s**t but all is okay… I’m throwing myself into work and, to be honest, I get a lot of pleasure from my work,” she said, referencing her new job as a cosmetic nurse.

“So basically I just want to say all my energies and efforts will now be focused on my daughter and my business.”


One of MAFS most controversial contestants, Jessika Power has not mellowed since the show ended.

Her ‘marriage’ to MAFS hubby Mick Gould ended… unconventionally and she left the show in a relationship with Dan Webb, who was ‘married’ to Tamara.

After separating from Dan, Jessica dated Nick Furphy, from 2018’s MAFS season, for a couple of months and gave us some major spoilers when she was spotted with a current contestant on The Bachelorette.

She’s also… well, been open about her opinions on other reality TV stars, after The Bachelorette‘s Angie Kent said MAFS was the trashiest reality TV show on our screens.

“She thinks she’s better than us. She got her start by drinking on TV and now that she is the Bachelorette, she wants to look down on people. Please, she’s dating 21 guys at once. She’s just a bogan and a hypocrite,” Jessika told the Daily Telegraph’s Confidential.

“Yes, I had an affair but I own what I did. She just wants fame — she’s been on Gogglebox, I’m a Celebrity and now The Bachelorette… as if she couldn’t find love already?”

Jessika also teased a possible appearance on another reality TV show, Love Island, before admitting she was not going on the show.

But if she did, she would’ve run into a few people she’s not big fans of.

Ex-boyfriend Dan’s friend Adam is appearing on the show. He described Jessika as “putrid” to WHO.

Jess also appeared on KIIS FM’s The Kyle and Jackie O Show to share her distaste for Adam’s fellow contestant Vanessa, who previously dated her brother Rhyce Power (are you keeping up with all this? It’s… a lot).

“She slagged me off on social media and when the promo for Love Island came out, I thought, ‘oh no, that’s why the social-climbing has been happening,'” Jessika said. “She said a lot of things about me so why not say it on air.”

Jess admitted warning her brother that Vanessa was “trouble” from day one. And it doesn’t help that Vanessa dated Dan after Rhyce.

“She dated my brother and then she went to Dan and one of my other ex-boyfriends,” Jess continued. “They were only together for a few months but then she went to my ex, Stephen. I was confused and shocked.”


We’re… confused.


Season villain Ines has kept a pretty low profile since the show aired, admitting to New Idea this month the show took a major toll on her physical and mental health.

“I had some really horrible death threats and the police had to [do] a drive-by past my house because of a stalker,” she told the magazine.

She said that watching her ‘villain’ edit on the show traumatised her and she stopped eating.

“I was on my deathbed, at one stage. I’ve always been a size 6 in my life. I dropped down to smaller than a 4. I was really scared.

“I thought if I lose one more kilogram, I might die.”

It has taken a while, but Ines said she was finally getting back to her old healthy self again.

To celebrate, she did what every woman does when she’s gone through a ~transformation ~ she got a fringe.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
