MAFS Australia: Alessandra Rampolla says partner swapping won't be tolerated


Married At First Sight sexologist Alessandra Rampolla says partner swapping WON’T be tolerated on the new season


Channel Nine is going big for the upcoming season of Married At First Sight, and it’s believed a cheating scandal will feature as the main storyline.

And ahead of the January 31 premiere, sexologist Alessandra Rampolla has reiterated that ‘couple swapping’ – as it’s referred to on the show – will not be tolerated.

Speaking to New Idea, Alessandra said that while infidelity ‘reflects human behaviour’ and ‘is not exclusive to’ the experiment, it isn’t condoned on MAFS and there will be consequences for cheaters.

The 47-year-old added: ‘Inside or outside of the experiment, people who are married and are in committed relationships often cheat. It’s for a variety of reasons… often it’s more to do with them than the actual relationship.’

The social experiment, which is heading into its ninth season, is known for its drama.

Whether it’s gaslighting grooms, toxic feuds or cheating brides, Alessandra admitted she’s often surprised to see how the couples’ journeys play out.

‘We can only take the brides and grooms on face value. We make the matches based on the information the participants give us, but it’s hard when they say something and act another way,’ she said, adding that it can be tough when brides and grooms exhibit ‘disappointing behaviour’. 

The new season will feature more highly addictive drama when the experiment is rocked by scandal in an explosive MAFS first. 

The incident leaves the relationship experts gobsmacked and causes several participants to walk out.
