MAFS’ dire performance in global dating show success rankings
MAFS is one of the least successful dating shows globally when it comes to finding love with just six per cent of couples are still together
New research has revealed MAFS Australia is one of the least successful dating shows globally with just six per cent of the franchise’s couples still together.
The last nine seasons have seen 82 couples matched. Six per cent are still together and just two per cent are legally married, according to research by mobile games company Slingo.
While shows like Too Hot to Handle and Love Island U.S. boast a higher percentage of couples that are still together, the data ranked them as less successful than MAFS because the average length of their relationships is just one year compared to MAFS’ three years.
Netflix‘s Too Hot to Handle was ranked the No. 1 ‘least successful dating show’ with 14 per cent of couples from its three seasons still together.
The series, in which contestants lose money from the prize fund if they give in to temptation by engaging in sexual activity, has proven to be not very lucky at forming lasting relationships, according to the study of ten different dating shows.
