A contestant who appears in the new season of Married at First Sight says she agreed to take part in the show under false pretenses.
Clare Verrall says producers told her there would be a gay couple on this season of the show — but there isn’t.
On Verrall’s Facebook page yesterday underneath a post announcing her participation in the show, she was challenged by a gay friend.
“I am amazed you signed up for this. Intelligent I thought you were,” wrote Anthony Wiseman (who appeared to be channeling Yoda).
“I find this program makes a mockery of marriage. I can’t marry my partner of 6 years because our governments won’t pass legislation claiming it is breaking down the importance of marriage, yet shows like this can allow a person to potentially marry someone they meet after just a few short months.”
Anthony makes an excellent point.

Verrall, 32, a property management consultant, responded to Wiseman with a long comment saying that she undertook to appear on the show believing a same-sex couple would be included.
