How to make the perfect Married At First Sight audition tape in self-isolation

As coronavirus spreads across Australia, millions of singletons are self-isolating at home with little to do.

So what better time to apply for next year’s season of Married At First Sight?

You can maximise your chances of getting cast by aligning yourself with one of four character types producers are looking for.

The Villain 

As the old saying goes, ‘nice guys finish last’.

One way to boost your chances is by emphasising your divisive or antagonistic nature – because producers always love a villain.

Michael Goonan, the self-proclaimed ‘pot stirrer’ of this year’s season, has gone on the record as saying he portrayed himself as a bad boy during the auditions.

The Fool

There’s nothing more appealing to producers than hearing a would-be bride or groom say: ‘I’ve never watched the show before.’

Participants who aren’t familiar with the show and don’t know its behind-the-scenes trickery are more likely to deliver better content.

Their reactions will be totally genuine and their lack of cynicism makes them more likely to embrace the process.

But it doesn’t always work out. David Cannon never watched MAFS before being cast and his marriage to Hayley Vernon was a disaster.








'I didn't watch the show': Participants who aren't familiar with MAFS and don't know its behind-the-scenes trickery are more likely to deliver better content, just like David Cannon

The mother hen 

Another producers’ favourite is the ‘mother hen’ – a female voice of reason amid the chaos of the social experiment.

These women tend to be more mature than the other brides and they’re helpful when it comes to ‘narrating’ scenes in piece-to-camera interviews.

Good examples of mother hens include Jules Robinson or Mishel Karen.

The Alpha Male 

Men who claim to have ‘traditional values’ immediately pique the interest of MAFS producers – just look at season five star Dean Wells.

Dean said in his audition that he wanted a ‘girly girl’ who knows that ‘he’s the man’.

These comments were played over and over in trailers, sparking a national debate and generating acres of free publicity of the show.
