Married At First Sight star Dino Hira shows off his dramatic image overhaul

He was paired with eccentric Melissa Lucarelli on Married At First Sight last year.

And Dino Hira has now well and truly moved on from the ill-fated relationship by gushing about his new romance and even ditching his clean-cut image which viewers came to know.

The 36-year-old now looks completely unrecognisable thanks to his thick and bushy beard and bulky physique, with some fans even questioning whether it was still him.

In the first image, Dino smiles for the camera for his official promotional photo for Married At First Sight.

In the below picture, the reality star’s chiselled good looks are enhanced with generous facial fuzz.

Sporting bulging biceps, it’s clear Dino has been hitting the gym hard since appearing on the reality show nearly two years prior.

In a new interview, the hunk likened his new look to his ‘patience’ on Married At First Sight.

He told The Wash: ‘People got to see my patience at the MAFS dinner parties but having a beard now is the ultimate proof of patience.

‘A man with no moustache or beard is like a woman with a moustache or beard.’

Dino, who is currently working as a meditation coach in Hong Kong, has also revealed that he has found new love since living overseas.

'Surely that's not him!' Some fans were even questioning whether it was still Dino in the pictures

While he refused to reveal the identity of his other half, Dino said: ‘I’m seeing someone here so see when it gets real, you will be invited to the real wedding.’

Dino’s new image comes just days after his former ‘bride’ Melissa Lucarelli unveiled her own new look. 

The 38-year-old, who now works as a professional influencer, has a far more glamorous look now to go along with her new career.

Her lips are much plumper and her hair is always perfectly styled in luscious, silky waves.

She recently debuted her new look in a stylish frock from Leo & Lin at a charity luncheon in Sydney. 

Despite her plumper facial features, Mel seems to have lost weight since her time as a television bride.

The Sydney-based stunner has previously tagged cosmetics clinics in some of her Instagram posts, indicating that Botox and fillers could possibly play a part in her flawless new look. 

Mel, who now works as a fashion and beauty influencer, even seems to have overhauled her wardrobe since appearing on MAFS.

While on the show, the brunette beauty didn’t always dress up, often preferring comfort over style unless she was getting dolled up for one of the dinner parties.

She now sports fabulous frocks and accessorises, many of which appear to be gifted and sponsored from brands. 

The brunette memorably piled on the pounds right before filming MAFS, which led her to go on a shake diet in the middle of production. 

She dropped a dress size on the liquid diet, which led to her snagging an endorsement deal with the brand, called Celebrity Slim.

During her time on the show, Mel was known for her quirky personality and almost decade long sex drought.

Then and now: Melissa style and overall demeanour has changed in the two years since she did MAFS

The semi-celibate star had promised herself that she’d end her drought in 2020, but recently revealed that the coronavirus pandemic had put a stop to her plans.

In a column for The Latch earlier this year, Mel wrote: ‘How do I meet and connect with someone while we are all in self-isolation?’

She continued: ‘And how the heck am I going to break the drought when we must keep a social distance of 1.5 metres?’

The former TV presenter admitted that she’d turned to online dating for the first time in her life in a bid to find love.

‘True love waits for no one and if I want to meet someone during corona times, then desperate times calls for desperate measures!’ she wrote.

However, Melissa admitted that she’s already had trouble figuring out the online dating world and has been confused by all the apps on the market.

‘Bumble, Tinder, Her, Plenty of Fish, Happn, Zoosk, Ok Cupid, Badoo, Hingee… the list goes on and on, just like my man drought,’ she joked.
