Everything we know about Nick Furphy, Jessika Power's new boyfriend.


Our appetite for ex-reality TV contestants dating other ex-reality TV contestants is no doubt as tragic as it is ferocious, but hey,  we’re not exactly apologising.

You see, Jessika Power from this year’s season of Married at First Sight is dating Nick Furphy, a 2017 MAFS contestant.

In case you forgot (there are a lot of former MAFS contestants to keep up with), Nick Furphy was matched by the experts with one of the twins. Remember them?

Nick was married to Sharon Marsh during the experiment, and the two were one of the few couples to seemingly form a genuine relationship.

The pair even got tattoos on their respective feet that read “I <3 Shaz” and, yes, “I <3 Nick”.

However, the pair broke up a few months after the show went to air and the tattoos, awkwardly, remained.

Last year Nick posted how his tattoo has since evolved, to now read “Shiraz”. Well, kind of…

Sine the show, the tradesman has kept a relatively low profile, removed from the public eye.


Two years after appearing on our screens, the reality TV star is now dating one of the more controversial contestants from this year’s season of the “social experiment”, Jessika Power.

Jess, 27, and Nick, 32, announced their new romance earlier this month.

“People won’t be happy with this relationship but it has nothing to do with them,” Nick told Daily Mail.

“Jess has grown so much after the show. Don’t always believe what you watch on TV. I’m looking forward to it.”

On Saturday night the couple made their relationship Instagram official etc, with a picture of the pair kissing posted to Jess’ Story. It is a very important update to their relationship status, obviously.

“When you know you know,” Jess captioned the gram.

Power told News Corp about her boyfriend earlier this month: "It just sort of went from me joking going, ‘Oh it would just be great to make it official now,’ to him saying, ‘We’re dating’ … it’s just one of those things that naturally fell into place."

"The thing I love about [Nick] the most is that he’s just straight to the point; he doesn’t mix his words get involved in everyone’s drama, but he’s also in this little media world that I’m in as well, so he knows the pressure I can be under."
