Married at First Sight is Australia’s most controversial and ground-breaking social experiment.
In Season 5, our three expert matchmakers – relationship psychologist John Aiken, neuropsychotherapist Trisha Stratford and dating expert and psychologist Mel Schilling - faced the mammoth task of again pairing 20 brave singles, using a mix of neuroscience and psychology to try to create 10 perfect matches.
Nine’s Chief Sales Officer, Michael Stephenson, said it was Married at First Sight’s ability to drive the “water cooler” conversation across the country and its strength in the key demographics that made it such an attractive property for advertisers.
“We have seen a strong reaction from advertisers to Married at First Sight because it is one of the most demographically pure shows on Australian TV,” said Stephenson.
“Our consistent performance in the key demographics in 2018 will once again be the marker of our success.”
Season 5 of Married At First Sight had the largest audience ever with an average of 1,328,099 viewers tuning in each night - up 13% on Season 4.
