They are commentators. The EP chooses who gets in and who gets who.

I also noticed a 7 News Reporter was the Best Man at one of the weddings with the Thai bird.

A bird? Or do you mean lady?

Hence why the so-called ‘social experiment’ (which is now manipulated to such a degree that it’s farcical to call it as such) has such a dismal track record - according to TV Tonight:

Only 1 couple from all previous MAFS seasons remains together.

Season 6 premieres on Three New Zealand tomorrow (February 3) at 7pm, with each episode shown one week after it aired on Nine. Like Nine, Three will screen the current season at 7pm Sundays and 7.30pm Mondays-Wednesdays, according to Freeview NZ TV guide.

How many times does Nine show Married across the week. After the initial broadcast, it is encored the next day, all 4 episodes were shown again last night and there seems to be an episode on again this afternoon.

Last night around 11pm in Brisbane Married AFS was on Nine, with MKR on Seven and I’m A Celebrity on Ten.

No wonder FTA audiences are falling.

Too many. Once is bad enough.

Nine will be hoping that tomorrow night’s anticpiated Elizabeth (“Australia’s most confident bride”) episode rates its socks off, as her promos were also saturated across the Aus Open.

Sunday’s in Feb were nearly peaking at 1.3-1.5mill last year so they will need to ramp up the drama to maintain these figures. Early signs for MKR are not great it’s on the verge of sinking further so that might help.

I’d imagine the following Sunday will be the first Dinner Party which will probably be marketed as the most controversial in history blah blah…

I am not a prude by any stretch of the imagination, but the last commitment ceremony and repeated use of the C word, although obviously bleeped out was way past a PG level, even with the extra parental guidance warning.

As an aside, do the other versions of this show around the world stick to the whole ‘finding love’ experiment or are they becoming nasty and bitchy like the Australian one?

I don’t understand the popularity or attraction of this show.
It’s a manufactured hoard of toxic narcissistic individuals out for their fifteen minutes of fame, hoping to stretch it to thirty minutes. Those who don’t fit that mould are there for fodder.
The so-called counsellors don’t inspire any sense of credibility.
After tyring to watch full episodes, I can’t watch it at length any more. A couple of minutes at a stretch, while channel surfing, is just about all I can stand.

I watch it in the background at work. Don’t know what’s sadder - that or the fact I have job that pays me to do it or where I can get away with it.

Interesting article from Daily Telegraph tonight, in which Nine CEO Hugh Marks is believed to have demanded episodes be re-edited to tone down some of the outrageous conduct for fear it will damage the network’s broader reputation.
