Married At First Sight is the most popular show on television, smashing ratings records and becoming a topic of national conversation.
But several editing fails have led fans to believe the reality show is ‘staged’ and ‘scripted’.
And on Wednesday night, disgruntled viewers took to social media after another glitch revealed a mystery man patrolling the program’s ‘weekly dinner party’.
‘It’s obviously staged and ridiculous!’ On Wednesday, Married At First Sight fans noticed a ‘crew member’ patrolling the show’s dinner party… prompting many to complain about the ‘scripted’ show
The weekly dinner party is presented as a place where the show’s ten couples come together to discuss their relationships without any outside influence.
But Wednesday night’s episode saw the man – believed to be a crew member – lurking behind the group.
Dressed in a black puffer jacket, the stranger was seen pointing and counting as MAFS participant Mick Gould engaged in conversation with his co-stars.
Whoops! The weekly dinner party is presented as a place where the show’s ten couples come together to discuss their relationships without any outside influence – but the mystery man was seen loitering in the background
Instagram meme page @MAFSfunny shared a screenshot of the man, with social media users quickly remarking on the ‘editing fail’.
‘Legit saw that and figured the waiter wouldn’t be wearing a puffer vest!’ one amused viewer wrote.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Nine for comment.
Awkward! On Tuesday, observant fans noticed that flirty messages exchanged by stars Ines Basic and Sam Ball were actually sent 12 hours apart
It’s the latest editing glitch that eagle-eyed viewers have noticed.
On Tuesday, observant fans noticed that flirty messages exchanged by stars Ines Basic and Sam Ball were actually sent 12 hours apart.
‘Sam was showing his phone with Ines’s message on it during the day while Elizabeth was out, yet his phone says 11:52pm,’ one viewer shared on
Debating the details: ‘Sam was showing his phone with Ines’s message on it during the day while Elizabeth was out, yet his phone says 11:52pm,’ one viewer shared on Facebook
The photo of the text messages showed Ines’ timestamp at 11:56am, while Sam viewed it 12 hours later at 11:52pm.
Sam could not have possibly read the text at 11:52pm, however, as he was filmed opening it in broad daylight.
Taking to the social media platform, one fan deliberated: ‘On the message from Ines it says it was sent at 11.56am… which means he took 12 hours to view/respond to it.’
Meanwhile, one fan complained on the official Married At First Sight Instagram page: ‘It not an experiment anymore like the first series when the couples all went in there to find real love. Now it’s obviously staged and ridiculous.. you’ve lost me, I’m over the bad acting and stupid drama the show. You’ve lost me as a fan . Not watching it again!’
Married At First Sight continues Sunday at 7:00 pm on Channel Nine
