Married at First Sight expert Dr Trisha Stratford has disclosed which couple had the most chemical compatibility during the scientific testing phase of the experiment.
Stratford is a a clinical neuropsychotherapist, which means she studies the chemicals associated with love, and what makes two potential partners biologically compatible.
In order to pair the couples, each participant must wear a t-shirt to bed every night, with no deodorant or fragrances to deter from their natural scent.
Dr Trisha Stratford spoke to Clare Stephens and Kelly Glover on this week’s episode of The Recap. Post continues below.
They then store the t-shirts in air tight bags, and have each person perform a “sniff test”, whereby they report whether or not they find the scent attractive.
Dr Stratford explains that a woman can detect a mans pheromones from more than three metres away, and it’s an unconscious biological process designed to assess the immune system of a potential mate.
We want an immune system that is different and complementary to ours, so we can produce strong offspring.
So which couple had the most intense chemical compatibility? According to Stratford, it was perhaps the most unlikely couple of the season, Simon and Alene.
"Simon absolutely adored the smell of Alene," Stratford says.
