Need another MAFS dose? Here’s how to watch MAFS New Zealand in Australia


Married At First Sight Australia may be done and dusted for 2024, but Married At First Sight NZ is just getting started.

The show follows the same premise as the Australian iteration and sees eight brides and grooms walk down the aisle and marry a stranger.

Fortunately, the series is fast-tracked from New Zealand to Australia to watch the drama unfold.

Who are the Relationship Experts?

MAFS Australia legend John Aiken will be the relationship expert poised to help brides and grooms find love, while bringing his unique flair of holding participants to account. Aiken will be joined by relationship and sex therapist Jo Robertson, who has over 14 years of experience and will bring a different dynamic to the duo, offering participants practical strategies and conversations about chemistry, intimacy and affection.

“I’m excited to be a part of the fresh relaunch of MAFS NZ,” John said. “After being involved for over a decade with the Australian version, I can now bring all of my lessons and insights to Kiwi singles looking for love.

“I spent a good deal of time growing up in New Zealand and I married a Kiwi, so I feel very connected to the country and its diverse population.”

MAFS NZ will have the similar mix of drama, love and relationship learning that the audience loves. I think those who tune in will really invest in the couples and watch with interest how they navigate all the challenges.”
