'Married At First Sight,' The TV Show I'm Obsessed With

I know what you're thinking, 'Married At First Sight' is just another bad reality Tv series, but it's not. 'Married At First Sight' is more of a social experiment, where six individuals agree to legally marry someone they've never met before. They only meet when they get to the altar, and that will be the first time they see their face, know their name or know anything about them at all. Each individual is matched with their 'perfect' partner, decided by four specialists through a process of scientific matchmaking. After several weeks of marriage, the couples will then have to decide whether they will stick together or divorce. The real question is, will any of them stay married?

I'm not going to spoil the show for you in case you watch it, but I'll introduce you to the couples as that's not too much of a spoiler.

Doug and Jamie 

Doug (31) is one of my favourite people from 'Married At First Sight' as he's so funny and loveable. He just seems like a really carefree and optimistic guy. He has a strong supportive family, and currently lives with his parents. 

Jamie, on the other hand had a hard childhood as her mother was a drug addict and her step-father was abusive. And so she gained legal custody of her siblings at the age of 19. She works as a part time host, part time nurse and has been on both 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelor Pad' (which makes me wonder if she's really serious about the show). She seems very cold and closed off at first, but when she opens up, her personality is much warmer. 

Jason and Cortney

Jason (27) seems like a total sweetheart, especially as he's the caregiver for his mum who is going through Stage four lung cancer and works as a firefighter. His only problem is that he's constantly working, so it's hard for him to find time to fit another person in. 

Cortney (26) is a makeup artist and performer in a Burlesque troupe. She's religious and yet she's also very rebellious, taking part in the show despite her parents' disapproval. She seems like a really strong woman, so I have to admire that in her. 

Monet and Vaughn

Monet (33) is a product development manager, and is looking for an alpha male, just like her father who passed away four years ago. Monet seems pretty cool to me, as she's a lot of fun and speaks her mind. 

Vaughn (30) is a field service technician who spent 11 years in the military. Vaughn believes in the stereotypical gender roles, wanting to be the man who protects and looks after his wife. Just like Monet, he has also lost his father who is very important to him. 

So what do you think? Would you get Married At First Sight or do you think the idea is crazy? The romantic in me really wants at least one of these couples to last.
