Married at First Sight Season 5: The Chicago Series

The Married at First Sight Season 5 experts are back!

After months of waiting, Married at First Sight returns to the small screen! I unintentionally followed the previous season but it was not that bad because I enjoyed watching Lillian and Tom fall in love.

The gang which comprises of Dr. Pepper Schwartz, Rachel de Alto, and Pastor Cal Roberson are back to find single men and women their perfect match. After that, these couples will stay married for about six weeks before they tell the experts if they want to continue being married or not.

People Magazine reported that in MAFS Season 5 premiere, three couples met their match and got married. Ashley Petta, a 30-year-old restaurant manager married Anthony D’Amico, the 33-year-old sales and marketing professional. Next is Sheila Downs, a 31-year-old director of operations for a local school, was matched with Nate Duhon, Lastly, Cody Knapek, a 26-year-old entrepreneur exchanged vows with Danielle DeGroot, a 30-year-old dietician. 

MAFS Season 5 cast members

Just a brief recap of Married at First Sight Season 4, they matched three couples, Heather and Derek, Lillian and Tom and finally, Sonia and Nick. Still in their honeymoon, Heather and Derek were not seeing eye to eye already unlike the other two couples. Eventually, they both decided (but more of Heather, really)to end their marriage.

Meanwhile, the two other couples, Lillian and Tom and Sonia and Nick stayed till the end of the season. I adore Lillian and Tom though the latter did keep a secret that instead of living in a proper house, he lives in a tour bus! It was fascinating to see how Tom took a lot of effort and money to build his home. Initially, Lillian was shocked but I guess her attraction with Tom took over that she was able to overlook that detail.

Stalking their social media accounts, Lillian and Tom did use the tour bus even off-camera. They seem to be enjoying their married life together. However, it is not the same with Sonia and Nick, more popularly known in the reality series as "Sonic."

Recently, both Married at First Sight Season 4 cast members announced on their social media accounts that they are ending their marriage. I think a lot of people who supported the Sonic felt bad but wished both well.

I am excited to see how Married at First Sight Season 5 will pan out. Hopefully, no couple will end their marriage while they do the experiment. Apart from the new season, the reality show also moved networks. MAFS is now being shown on Lifetime.
