What REALLY goes on behind the scenes at Married At First Sight’s drama-filled reunion

While there’s no shortage of drama during Married At First Sight‘s eagerly anticipated dinner parties, things aren’t always what they seem behind the scenes.

The participants were given one 30-minute break throughout the whole shoot at 10.30pm, leaving very little time for the brides and grooms to eat some food and get their makeup touched up.

Although it may seem like they only last a couple of hours, the show’s emotionally charged reunion was shot over 13 hours.

The show’s participants arrived at 3pm with their makeup and hair fully styled, before shooting around 6pm.

Most of the brides and grooms were kept in separate areas at The Grounds of Alexandria to save any talk, drama or resolutions for the cameras.

The show’s producers sat in an off-set location and watched the events play out on monitors, similarly to the show’s ‘love experts’.

There was little reshoots during the reunion, with everything playing out onscreen as it originally happened.
