Married At First Sight is the type of show that doesn’t have a big cash prize at the end. What could be better than potentially finding your soul mate? Money is NOTHING compared to that!
But how do the participants support themselves when they’re busy filming? Clare, who you may remember had a spectacularly terrible marriage to Jono, has the answer.
In a now deleted Instagram comment, Clare responded to a fan who asked whether they get paid to be on the show.
“No you don’t get paid a wage, you get a $110 per week but they don’t contribute to your rent for the house they are filming in or the dates they want you to go on,” she wrote.
“I work in sales and it had a big impact on my work as you can’t just ‘go to work normally’ as they claim. Doing the show probably cost me thousands in lost revenue. That’s why whenever someone writes ‘they just do it for the money’ I have a good laugh!”
If there’s a chance you could meet your one true love, why wouldn’t you sign up for the show!? The series won’t make you rich, but love conquers all!
The next season of Married At First Sight starts soon on Channel 9.
