Married at First Sight is a roaring hit among viewers season after seasons. The producers are the pro at their work and this is seen once again when they ensured that the participants’ hearts were in the right place for the show’s season four. While the present season is about to hit the screen, there are buzzes for the next season too. Is Married at First Sight Season 5 casting already?
The reality show revolves around a simple concept. It gets two strangers married on their very first meeting. It is no wrong to perceive, that there is a risk involved of one of the partakers having hidden intentions for being featured in the show.
Relationship expert Rachel DeAlto briefs how they took measures for safeguarding the integrity of the show. “Each candidate goes through a very thorough background check to determine if they have significant debts or any sort of criminal record,” DeAlto mentioned in a behind-the-show clip. Pastor Calvin Roberson, one of the show’s marriage counselors, said that even the mental and moral states of affairs of the participant are also under their scan.
“We’re looking at things like their psychological testing, their core values,” Roberson explains. He also clarifies that since these marriages are legal, ‘annulment is not an option’.
According to ET, this season, two new specialists team up, sociologist Dr. Pepper Schwartz: communication and relationship expert, Rachel DeAlto, and marriage counselor, Pastor Calvin Roberson.
In this season over 30,000 applicants took part. Out of that huge numbers, only six participants (Heather Seidel, Lillian Vilchez, Sonia Granados, Derek Schwartz, Nick Pendergrast and Tom Wilson) were chosen. While they all feel they have a shot at love, the tough numbers tell that out of 18 past participants, only two couples continued to stay together. Still, one can be still hopeful.
Going by the trend of on-screen marriages, it won’t be wrong to speculate that Married at First Sight season 5 is already on the cards and FYI is possibly calling out for new sets of contestants.
The 14-episode Married at First Sight will be aired on FYI on July 26 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
