Married at First Sight Australia 2023’s Melissa Sheppard is a sex-positive 41-year-old who describes herself as a “freak in the sheets”.
The hairdresser joined the experiment in hopes of getting a “final shot” at “real love”.
Even though she has no trouble meeting men, Melissa hasn’t found anyone to be in a long-term relationship with since her marriage ended 10 years ago — something that she truly craves.
She also has one son, whom she co-parents with her ex and lives with her twin sister on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
According to her official Nine bio, she has a huge heart and is upbeat, charismatic, cheeky and flirtatious and looking for her “Thor“.
Melissa is very comfortable with her sexuality and expects her “sexy man” to keep up with her. Love this for her!
“If I could leave anything with all the women in the world, it’s to own your sexuality and embrace it,” she said in an interview with Nine.
“Be bold, be brave and be you. We only attract the right people in our lives when we don’t hide parts of ourselves.”
Melissa Sheppard has been paired with Joshua White on MAFS
When the Bride met Joshua White at the end of the aisle, she felt she had met her “Thor and Gladiator in one”.
“He is my Thor and Gladiator in one. He turned around, and I was like, ‘Wow’. I was blown away.”
“His hair’s great. He smells nice. He’s taller than me. This handsome, amazing man is standing there who is everything I’ve wanted. I think the experts have hit the jackpot here.”
