1. “They were about to lose half the cast.” What we know about why MAFS needed a break from filming.
And now we finally know why.
According to Daily Mail, the production team stopped filming to hold crisis talks because several relationships looked like they weren’t going to last. Ahem… experts.
“The decision to take the break [in late September] was made after it became apparent they were about to lose half the cast so early into the season,” an inside source supposedly told the publication.
“There had also been a series of off-camera incidents, and producers were struggling to incorporate what was happening in ‘real life’ with what had actually been filmed.”
But the decision to take a break backfired. Mainly because the cast members were left to gallivant around the apartment building as they pleased with no camera crews around.
“Everyone was partying in each other’s rooms, going out drinking, falling out and fighting in the corridors like it was budget student accommodation,” claims the source.
Apparently, it was during this time that Michael and Hayley kissed and David filmed the infamous toothbrush incident on his phone because there was no crew around.
To get the show back on track, the producers apparently "pinned all their hopes" on Elizabeth Sobinoff and Seb Guilhaus, who enter the show as intruders.
"Bringing in intruders and a fan favourite like Elizabeth seemed like the only hope of having any real couples left standing at the end."
Nothing has been confirmed, but hopefully, we get some answers soon.
Married At First Sight returns tonight at 7:30pm on Nine.

2. “It was a little… violent." Kim and Kourtney might actually throw punches on the next season of KUWTK and wow.
Okay, so we know that the Kardashians and drama come hand in hand but violence? That's something we didn't see the sisters partaking in.
But boy, it seems we were wrong.
In the latest promotional video for the new season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, it looks like Kim and Kourtney actually get physical.
Although we can't tell exactly what started the argument or what made it escalate to that level, it looks wild.
