MAFS groom Tim Calwell may look like a fun, chilled and charismatic surfer guy, but there’s more to him than meets the eye.
The 31-year-old Queenslander decided to join Married At First Sight after discovering his most recent girlfriend was unfaithful to him.
He’s scrubbed all evidence of her from his social media and is hoping to find true love with the woman he marries on MAFS.
Where is Tim from?
During his wedding Tim speaks in Spanish to his bride, leaving fans wondering what his background is. While he isn’t Spanish, he has done a lot of travelling.
Tim grew up in Darwin and lived in Colombia, Melbourne, Thailand and Bali before choosing to settle on the Gold Coast, Queensland.
His Instagram account is littered with photos of his travels to Dubai, Africa, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia and more.
What’s Tim’s job?
Tim is actually a millionaire, something he’s talked about on his YouTube channel, explaining that he went from $0 to over $1,000,000 in just seven months.
The MAFS groom said that he made the small fortune through dropshipping, which is a business model that allows someone to sell products online and ship them directly to the buyer without having any inventory.
“Basically what I did is I quit my job in May and then I left to Thailand,” Tim explained in the video which was posted in 2018. ” I came across a couple of people doing e-commerce and I thought this could be a good idea.”
According to his Channel 9 MAFS bio, “Tim currently has a handful of online businesses to his name” and in the future “he hopes to build a school in Ethiopia, where his sister was adopted from”.
Married at First Sight 2024 premieres at 7:30pm on January 29th on Channel Nine and 9Now.
