Nine denies Married At First Sight producers 'approach widows'


Channel Nine DENIES Married At First Sight producers are ‘approaching widows whose husbands only recently died’ for the new season

Channel Nine has denied claims that Married At First Sight producers have been approaching ‘widows’ for the new season. 

A Nine spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday: ‘The casting of the next season of MAFS is not targeting those who have recently lost their partner.’ 

It comes after the show sparked controversy for false reports that producers were attempting to cast a widowed woman for its upcoming tenth season.

According to a report from Yahoo! Lifestyle, producers have been hunting on Instagram to cast for the specific role, even reaching out to several women whose partners only recently died. 

Speaking to the publication on Tuesday, a friend of a widow who was approached for the show blasted producers for their eyebrow-raising casting tactics. 

‘They are looking for a widow and literally messaging all the ladies that she knows that have and are going through this trauma and some are very recent,’ the woman said.

Nine announced its first casting call for the upcoming tenth season back in February. 

It read: ‘Are you looking for love? If you’re searching for The One and are ready to settle down, Australia’s biggest social experiment could find your soulmate.’ 

‘Married At First Sight is searching for men and women of all ages and backgrounds who are genuinely committed to finding love,’ the notice continues. 

‘This groundbreaking social experiment uses science and psychology to help Australian singles meet their perfect partner.

‘But there’s a catch… you won’t get to meet your future husband or wife until your wedding day!’ 

It goes on to warn that the show is ‘not a competition and there is no cash prize up for grabs’. 

‘Instead, you could walk away with the most valuable prize of all… true love,’ the Nine post teases. 

Additionally, potential stars are warned they will have to give up four months of their lives for the show. It also insists that the future couples must be, ‘genuine about finding love’. 

According to the casting call, the show will be filming between early July and November 2022. 

Interested parties are directed to apply at the show’s casting website, marriedatfirstsightcasting.com.au.
