Married At First Sight bosses may have a few new applications coming in after Wednesday’s episode as viewers joke that it may be their final option.
‘Married at First Sight would be my worst nightmare but is literally the only option left to me right now,’ tweeted one viewer as Jonathan, a 39-year-old property manager from Bristol wed Steph, 28, a nurse from Somerset whom he met for the first time at the end of the aisle.
‘Think i’ll apply for married at first sight. Seems like the only plausable option really (sic),’ added another viewer while one fan suggested the show ‘seems like a legit answer to my life’.
‘Like another person just HAS to marry me? sign me up,’ they joked.
Married At First Sight brings together, as the title suggests, four couples who have never met before but are matched up via science and date and who tie the knot.
The show hasn’t exactly had a great track record when it comes to its subjects finding true love, as none of the couples who were wed in previous series are still together.
But that hasn’t stopped more from wanting to give it a go though, with around 7,000 people applying to take part in this series.
Sounds like there may be 8,000 people next year…
Married At First Sight airs on Channel 4 on Wednesday night at 9pm.
