Introducing Married at First Sight NZ’s 12 New Singles

Single And Ready to Marry!
Introducing Married at First Sight NZ’s 12 New Singles

Dust off your best wedding garb, because you’re about to be guests at six of New Zealand’s most highly anticipated weddings when Married At First Sight NZ returns to Three for its second season.

The groundbreaking social experiment is back and 12 new singles are ready to risk it all for their dream of happily-ever-after as they put their trust in our experts and commit to a total stranger on national TV!

Returning to the show for a second season, relationship expert Tony Jones’ focus continues to be the personal side of things when coupling up this year's love-seeking singles. Personality types, core values, beliefs, shared goals and relationship experience remain the touchstones of the matching process.

Tony says: “What we’ve learned from last year is that those who are prepared to really commit to the experiment, and are up front and honest about who they are, warts and all, have very different journeys. We know we have found singles with commonality that are a genuine fit, but in order for these relationships to work the singles will need to be prepared to be their authentic selves and give it their all, despite the unique circumstances.”

Forget Meghan Markle and Harry Windsor - the nuptials on everyone's lips this October will be between these 12 romantic hopefuls:

Julia Malley, Account Manager from Christchurch
Ksenia Smorodinova, Sales Manager from Auckland
Monique Lee, Teacher from Christchurch
Ottie Schwartz, Promo Manager from Christchurch
Yuki Sato, Hairdresser and Business Owner from Christchurch
Dan McLaughlan, Electrician from Wellington
Dave McClelland, Entrepreneur from Dunedin
Fraser Pearce, Policy Analyst from Wellington
Gareth Noble, Apprentice Barber from Cromwell
Samuel Levi, Fashion Content Producer from Auckland
Tayler Morgan, Apprentice Industrial Electrician from Christchurch
Wayne McIntosh, Helicopter Engineer from Taranaki

MediaWorks is also fizzing to announce SodaStream as the broadcast sponsor.

Will sparks fly at the altar? Who will get their happy ending? Will we see another Brett and Angel love story play out before our very eyes? Stay tuned for when Married At First Sight NZ returns to Three and ThreeNow soon.

Max Rashbrooke Review: Mahler 7 - NZSO

Gustav Mahler’s Seventh Symphony may be one of the least well-known of its ilk, but Edo de Waart and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra made a compelling case for a reassessment. They showed us a work of immense variety, surprising contrast and delicate shades of light and dark. More>>
