Married at first sight is a cruel scam that is working very well. Channel 9 must be celebrating as this reality show rates its head off. But the naive public believe it's all true and don't realize that every scene is contrived.
The producers have said "This ground-breaking social experiment is returning and will continue to help Australian singles find their potential lifelong partner using the science of matchmaking."
And that's a lie right there. It's not a social experiment at all but a sham. The producers know the young men they choose have no intention of looking for a life partner, blind Freddie can see they only want publicity for themselves while the women are disrespected and left embarrassed for crying on film, which they know only makes it more interesting.
And the three so-called experts with their cringeworthy advice, it's hard to believe they expect viewers to take them seriously.
Described as "not a competition" with no cash prizes, contestants are promised only the opportunity to find love, so there is no reward for the couples taking part, meanwhile Channel 9 produces a high rating reality show that costs them nothing.
Shame on you Channel 9.
