Married At First Sight begins casting for next year’s season – as viewers plead for ‘real people’ instead of ‘actors and influencers’

As Married At First Sight heads into its final weeks, an eleventh season has already been given the green light with applications now open for new brides and grooms.

But fans of the Channel Nine reality show are calling on producers to cast people who are actually looking for love, and not fame-hungry influencers and actors.

The official MAFS Instagram page shared a post on Monday announcing the show is looking for a fresh batch of singletons for 2023.

Comments on the post were not positive, however, with fans having seemingly grown tired of the series’ drama and lack of real connections between the couples.

One comment, which received more than 500 likes, read: ‘Please screen people better next year. We actually do like to see people falling in love, not being emotionally manipulated.’

Another viewer wrote: ‘Maybe they should consider using real people, not actors and influencers just because they look good.’

A third said: ‘I wanted to join and have applied for the past three years and have really realised it’s nothing to do with finding love. You’ve just got to be half a celebrity to be accepted and ready to create chaos.

‘It’s unfair for the people who have followed along from the start and did see success stories, because honestly I am f**ked in the dating department and give up entirely.’

Another viewer said producers need to ‘stop encouraging bad acting and fake storylines’ with their casting decisions. 

This season’s cast was full of brides and grooms who previously starred on reality TV or already had a public following.
