Married At First Sight's Experts Are The Show's Biggest Villains And They Need To Change


There are few universal truths: Shannon Noll was robbed, Tim Tams are more aussie than Vegemite and the “experts” on Married At First Sight are just the absolute worst.



And honestly, they’re ruining the institution of “fake tv marriage”, which I for one will not stand for!

Let’s break it down. The “experts” John, Mel and Trisha are there to pretty much mediate any concerns or problems of the contestants, problem is…they don’t. Muck like Rainier Wolfcastle’s goggles: “They do nothing!”.

We feel the acid of reality TV.

Seriously, what is their actual job? They claim that the only footage they see is the dinner party and commitment ceremony but that’s bullshit and proves that they suck at the job.

But if it is true then they have less of an insight into the relationships than the audience do but look it makes sense, they went off at Bronson for using the forbidden word on Ines but hadn’t seen the abuse he endured because it wasn’t right goddamn in front of them.

We’re better than they are.

And if they do in fact see what happens then they’re leaving people in volatile situations in the name of ratings and this is in a season where at least 5 different people have had an emotional crisis, crying on TV and they did nothing?!

And they’re supposed to be the “happy” couple.

They’re worse than any other villains we see because we know that villains are written to be that way but to see people/”experts” who are there to take care of others, leave people in bad relationships (#Justice4Mick) for the sake of entertainment?

It’s not on.

Here's A Tribute To The Greatest One Liners From Married At First Sight’s Cyrell

You ain't no king ding-a-ling.

After 7 weeks, Cyrell and Nic could go no further. The couple could go no further. They simply didn’t work and although it took an extra week from Cyrell and another awkward brother confrontation later, they agreed to go their separate ways.

Forget Romeo and Juliet, those people from The Notebook and The Human Centipede, this is the end of one of the greatest love stories of all time.

They were a foot above the rest.

Cyrell was the light in the dark, dark tunnel that was Married At First Sight.

She called it as it was and was honest…like sure, very openly honest and opinionated but goddamn it she was a treasure.

Farewell Kween.

And in a show filled with fake lips and fake personalities, it’s refreshing to see someone who told it like it was, complained when they weren’t given wine and got violent at the drop of a hat because frankly, Cyrell is who we’d be if we went on the “experiment”.

Cyrell may not have found love on the show but she has a found a place in our hearts.



Married At First Sight Has Waged A Dangerous War On The Perception Of Masculinity And They Need To Fix It

"Be a man" ain't gonna cut it.

Married At First Sight is flawed beyond belief, the original format isn’t working and it feels like each seasons ‘drama’ is turned up for the sake of entertainment and nothing has exemplified it more than the pairings of Bronson with Ines and Billy with Susie.

Both couples were doomed from the start.

John sucks too.

Bronson and Billy are two types of the same coin. Both are emotionally open, in touch with who they are and what they want but fundamentally, honest people. Although there is a difference between them when it comes to how emotionally affected they get on camera but nonetheless, they’re open with how they feel.

Billy got it rough.

Ines and Susie are also essentially the same type of person. They’re loud, outspoken and they both have an outdated perception of what it takes to be “manly” and “masculine”. On countless occasions they’ve belittled, demeaned and straight out insulted their “husbands”,  alone and in front of others.


They’ve projected what they think a “man” should be and taken advantage of the well-meaning nature of their partners to not argue or put up a fight. However, the snowball effect of abuse and insults came to a head at a commitment ceremony where Bronson used the forbidden word to describe Ines’ behaviour.

This actually showed up before…the word.

Bronson was called out by “expert” Mel Schilling leading many to wonder where this vigilance was before. Ines had repeatedly verbally abused Bronson, jokingly threatened to cut the rope while he parasailed and mercilessly mocked him and yes, we wholeheartedly believe that what he said was horrible and consequences are required but damn, if that didn’t feel one sided.

An “expert”…

As a society, we’ve tried to fight the perception that being in touch with your emotions and open doesn’t mean that you aren’t “masculine”. And we try to celebrate it whenever we can but Married At First Sight needs to open a balanced dialogue that respects opinion but also holds people accountable because mocking someone on TV because you they don’t meet your expectations of “masculinity” is damaging to all of us.
