MAFS 2024: Meet Collins, whose first girlfriend is his, uh, bride

He's skipping the whole dating dance

Married At First Sight 2024 groom Collins Christian has completely skipped the step of having a relationship and will be marrying his MAFS bride with no prior relationship experience

Yup, Collins has never been in a relationship, which we guess, technically, means that whoever is paired with him on MAFS will be his first GF.

According to his MAFS bio, Collins had his heart broken by unrequited love once and finds himself regularly sitting in the friend zone with potential romantic interests.

Where is Collins from?

Collins was born in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia after his parents relocated from Zambia. Upon arriving in Australia, his accountant father and pharmacist mother had to work hard to make ends meet.

“International degrees mean nothing, so it took some time for my folks to get back into their professions,” he told Draw Your Box. “During that time [after migrating], they needed money. With two young kids in a completely new country and away from everything they know, Mum and Dad had to resort to other ways of making money by working at McDonald’s – both as kitchen hands.

At age 14 he and his family relocated to Perth.

“Saying this now gets me a bit emotional to realise and remind myself how much my folks have done for me and my sis,” says Collins. “They always said, ‘Our ceiling is your platform. Now go out and get it!’ Be someone. Aim so high!

After filming of MAFS wrapped late last year, Collins moved to Sydney.
