Married At First Sight will be back on our TV screens (AGAIN) at 7pm tonight.
It’s been a month since MAFS returned to our tellies and the drama just keeps on coming.
But among fans, there’s one common issue that keeps coming up time and time again.
You see, things have changed. A lot.
These are just some of the things we say while watching Married At First Sight. Post continues below…
Four years on from its premiere on Australian screens in 2015, Married At First Sight is now an entirely different beast.
In fact, this season is almost entirely unrecognisable compared to the show’s premiere.
There were no intruders, no cheating scandals and the drama usually related to mundane issues like washing the dishes.
With fans missing the simpler times of the show, we decided to take a look back at everything we forgot about season one of Married At First Sight.
Here’s what we discovered:
The couples moved in together.
On the first season of Married At First Sight, the four couples moved in together.
Unlike the current season, where contestants are put up in fancy high-rise apartments overlooking the harbour, the first season saw one half of each couple forced to move into their new partner’s home.
There were fights over grocery shopping and home decor and it was just bloody great.
The best part? It’s a lot easier to avoid ‘wife-swapping’ and cheating scandals when you’re not living down the corridor from the other couples…
Listen to our latest recap of Married At First Sight here. Post continues below…
There were only six episodes.
The first season of MAFS was just six episodes long.
Unlike this season, which has been on the air for a month already with up to four to five episodes on screen a week, season one was refreshingly short.
There were no intruders.
Season one of MAFS comprised of just four couples: Zoe and Alex, Michelle and James, Lachlan and Clare, and Roni and Michael.
