Married At First Sight Spoilers: Has MAFS Become A Platform For Instagram Influencer Wannabes?
Married at First Sight spoilers and updates tease that more and more lately, fans are saying that MAFS contestants go on the show to gain notoriety and followers on social media, not to “really” get married.
Married At First Sight Spoilers – Contestants Admit That They Are Sourced, They Don’t Apply!
On MAFS Season 12, Haley Harris and Chris Williams both admitted that they were contacted to appear on the show; they were not genuinely looking for their “happily ever after,” they were asked to appear on a reality TV show. There were some contestants in particular that you could just see were not on the show to work on their marriages, they were just there for their 15 minutes and attention on social media; Taylor Dunklin, Zach Justice, and Amelia Fatsi even admitted that she did the show because she thought it would be fun to be on tv.
Married At First Sight Updates – Did Social Media Change The Show?
At first, Married At First Sight seemed genuine, the contestants did appear like they were on the show because they were looking to get married and settle down. But, just like the Bachelor and The Bachelorette, MAFS now seems like a launching pad for people to become social media influencers. It really appears that reality TV gets more scripted and fewer legit participations as time goes by.

In the last few seasons, it appeared that most of the contestants were seeking fame or notoriety. Appearing on national tv will certainly get them followers but depending on how they act on the show it doesn’t necessarily mean it will all be positive, but in Chris Williams’ case, a follower is a follower. One minute they are on MAFS and the next their Instagram followers are climbing, they become verified and the next thing you know, they are brand ambassadors for the newest hair care or skin line. It really has become annoying. It started with Jamie Otis, she took it to the extreme, then it quieted down for a very long time, until about season 8 or 9, and now it seems like these social media wannabe stars are just flooding our reality shows.
Season 13 of MAFS is around the corner, and with it, there are two new experts appearing on Monday, July 21st at 8:00 pm. Hopefully, the experts learned their lesson with Chris Williams and did a better job matching “legit” contestants this time around.
