We’re well and truly deep into this season of Married at First Sight and things are getting… intense.

From multiple alleged cheating scandals to countless dinner party arguments and even a pooey toothbrush incident, this season of the reality show has been just as dramatic as we expected.

But as the season goes on, there’s one thing we’ve noticed.

Unlike previous seasons, it’s getting painfully obvious which couples will actually succeed in the experiment.

This is what the Married At First Sight experts are really like. Post continues below.

Thanks to endless rumours and interviews doing the rounds, we already think we have a good idea of who’s still together following the experiment.

(Spoiler alert: It’s not… looking good.)

Here’s our very important investigation into the Married At First Sight couples that will and won’t make it this season.

Aleks and Ivan (NOT TOGETHER)

Throughout this season of MAFS, Aleks and Ivan went from being this year’s sure-fire disaster couple to our unexpected favourite.

In their last dinner party on the show, fellow contestant Michael raised the couple’s private issues with the group, questioning whether Aleks and Ivan had slept together, and claiming that Aleks had been dating another man during the experiment. It was… a lot.

After the garbage fire dinner party, Aleks and Ivan failed to show up to the following commitment ceremony, with many viewers questioning whether the couple had split up.

Sharing a matching Instagram post following their exit, however, the pair seemed to hint that they were actually together.

“The pressures and expectations of the experiment got the better of us,” Ivan said.

“Aleks and I stayed together the evening of our exit and I even saw her off at the airport to be with her family again. It was an emotional moment for the both of us,” he added.

“Let’s see if being outside does our relationship any more justice without the pressure and judgements of our peers. That being said, regardless of what pans out over the next few days and weeks, we are forever grateful for all of the wonderful people we have met along the way. We are all just humans on our own journey. Spread love, not hate and judgement.”

Look, we’re sorry to be the bearer of bad news but despite their Instagram post, it actually seems highly unlikely that Aleks and Ivan are still together.

While they may have stayed together after filming wrapped up, it appears the pair are no longer dating.

Commenting on a paparazzi photo which was shared by meme account MAFS Funny on March 2, Aleks called Ivan a “f*ck boy”. The photo showed the couple going on a date with Stacey and Michael.

“I just vomited,” Stacey commented.

“I’m feeling ill as well! What were we thinking?” Aleks added.

“As if we were seen with that. Hahaha f*ck sake. I blame lack of sleep,” Stacey replied.

“We must have been losing our minds! Or maybe just falling for the f*ck boy lies and manipulation,” Aleks responded.


Stacey and Michael (NOT TOGETHER)

Stacey and Michael’s relationship has been rocky since the moment they got married.

Throughout the show, Stacey was left frustrated after Michael repeatedly returned to their apartment late at night after drinking. There was also, of course, the ~alleged~ cheating scandal between Michael and David’s wife, Hayley, who has since exited the show.

Although the couple (weirdly) seemed to patch things up following the cheating scandal, Stacey seemingly confirmed her relationship was over in February.

When @shitadelaide shared a post featuring people sharing their Valentine’s Day plans, one respondent wrote, "sitting in my room alone listening to music, eating chocolates and crying" to which Stacey tagged her friend and commented "same".

A fan wrote back, "I’m guessing the marriage didn’t work out then," to which Stacey replied with a sad face emoji.

There's also a rumour circulating that Michael ends up with intruder bride, KC. Since the rumours began, there have been photos circulating of the pair hanging out together. The Daily Mail have also leaked text messages between KC and Stacey, in which KC seemingly asked Stacey for permission to hang out with Michael.

Yep. Another one bites the dust.

Mishel and Steve (MAYBE... TOGETHER)

Since getting married on MAFS, Steve and Mishel's relationship has seen a lot of drama.

From the fact that Steve cheated on his former partner to Steve's revelation that he didn't find Mishel attractive, things between the couple didn't seem great on the show.

Outside the show, however, the couple seem to only have good things to say about each other.

Speaking to TV WeekSteve shared that he had a deep and meaningful off-camera conversation with Mishel, which elevated his attraction towards her.

"Where we were after that is a really close moment and I will love Mishel until the day I die," he told the publication.

Steve also opened up to the Daily Mail about his relationship with Mishel, sharing that the pair had caught up recently.

"I caught up with Mishel yesterday in Sydney. We had a beautiful dinner together," he said in a video with the Daily Mail.

 "I bought her dinner, of course, that's the right thing to do. It's going very well, we speak all the time on a regular basis."

Verdict: We're stumped. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Connie and Jonethen (NOT TOGETHER)

A lot has changed between Connie and Jonethen throughout the experiment.

Although we initially thought the couple might have been the shining light of this season of Married At First Sight, things have since changed.

In the past two weeks, Jonethen has elected to leave the experiment, while Connie has chosen to stay.

And now, speaking to New Ideait seems Jonethen was persuaded to stay in the experiment for a lot longer than he intended to.

Although he apparently repeatedly expressed his desire to leave the show, Jonethen claimed that he chose to remain on the show after signing a new agreement with producers, who were "desperate" to keep him on the show due to the number of failing couples.

"I got the terms of my contract rewritten halfway through," Jonethen said, adding that the new terms meant he was able to visit his family in between filming.

On Monday, New Idea also published paparazzi photos of Connie giving an unknown man a neck massage at the beach.

Yep, we're pretty sure this is proof that Connie and Jonethen are over.


Erm. Do we even need to debate this?

From the moment KC and Drew entered the experiment as intruders, it was clear that they weren't exactly compatible.

From arguments over Drew's roommate to that time KC threw out a bunch of Drew's belongings, it hasn't exactly been smooth sailing.

In fact, during Sunday night's commitment ceremony, many viewers suggested that KC and Drew should just leave the show as they're clearly incompatible.

"Why were KC and Drew even matched together? They are completely different people?" one viewer wrote on Twitter.

Speaking to TV Week, KC also admitted that she wouldn't care if Drew left her for fellow bride Connie.

"It was like, 'If you actually like her, I'd be fine if you wanted to jump ship,'" she said.

"[He] was judgemental about things I liked or things I'd had done to myself. Maybe he needed someone a bit more like Connie, who didn't care about the materialistic side of life."

Lizzie and Seb (TOGETHER)

FINALLY. Some good news.

Elizabeth, who appeared on the last season of Married at First Sight, returned this year for a second chance at love.

And thankfully, it looks like the experiment has finally succeeded.

Since filming on the show wrapped up, Lizzie and Seb have been spotted in public numerous times.

In recent months Lizzie and Seb have shared identical photos from a Sydney lookout point and photos from high tea at the same restaurant.

The Daily Mail have also published photos of the pair getting keys cut together in early March, spurring rumours that they're most likely still together.
