Episode 4 of MAFS screens tonight from 7pm-8.30pm. Over to MAFS correspondent, Daisy (thank you!):
Hi ttv gang and MAFS fans. This isn’t a recap but a review of events so far and preamble header for this week’s shows.
So according to our not-so-experts, there are 4.3 million Aussies looking for love. Dating these days is hard so in come tv producers to create a range of reality shows to help Adams and Eve’s locate each other. And provide voyeuristic entertainment for us.
With their credibility shot, the sexperts put on brave, knowledgeable faces and press on for whatever pittance and infamy the show provides them to pretend they are using science to match lovers. I think they have one or two successes so far, so less than random chance maybe.
But to the cast; I will skim and try to recall names. My opinions are my own. Readers may have very different likes and dislikes. I will only mention my highs and lows; starting with Cheryl. Cheryl thinks people judge her on her looks. I suspect they might judge her on her inflated sense of her own gorgeousness. It looks like she has been Daddy’s darling. She was quite rude. Her partner, the peacock entrepeneur, might find her favourite position is ‘centre of attention’. Cheryl reminds me of spoilt Sharon from Kath and Kim.
Interrupt the sexperts with vital information: it takes 7 seconds to form a first impression”. Der.
Also matched up was a farmer from QLD with a down to earth fifo from Western Australia. They were both thrilled with each other. No ravers, they thought each other beautiful, and that’s all that matters. They were nice enough. Michael the stripper is happy that his blonde is fit, “has nice hair” and small ears, and she thinks he is good looking, but he is hiding the truth of his work. Will that fly with blondie and her mum. I am also seeing a problem because a perfectionist male isn’t going to be happy with a girl who leaves her cups out gor her mum to pick up and wash. Also this is where Michael needs to check out the mother to see his wife in twenty years. How rude was Mummy bagging out the groom to his rellies!
The pool for wannabe rtv romantic hopefuls must be quite good because I think the producers found some good, if not gorgeous ones. Lebanese Alene is sweet but isn’t feeling the chemistry with Simon. Simon is giving it his best shot though. He used humour to win over his bride and her family.

Talkative Italian girl Vanessa is quite delightful but will Mark’s shyness be too much. With Vanessa, Mark would get a fabulous family. I loved Vanessa’s adorable dad and the bridesmaid’s dresses. Vanessa and (don’t put too much make-up on me so he knows what I look like) Alene are two of my favourite brides.

I nearly forgot the girl who did modelling and her hubby that was the horse race caller. He seemed nice, but she seemed to have a bit of a stick up her botty. She might come good if he can get that out. She refused to kiss him for the photos, whereas panning back to Cheryl, she just complained at the kissing.
Anyhoo viewers, we have been introduced to lots of couples this year, so who do you like, dislike and who will make it into the MAFS hall of flame with Zoe and Alex and produce little mafs babies? And will we have our first wife swap. I think Cheryl could go with Michael the stripper. And who will be the Runaway bride…..?
