Sebastian is a former AFL player-turned-personal trainer who describes himself as an ‘Eccentric Pisces’ and a ‘Try-hard comedian.’

He’s also an aspiring actor. Yep.

I’ve tried working in pretty much most industries – banking, promotions, personal training, construction,’ he told the The Advertiser in 2018.

‘The only thing that’s been consistent has been my love of entertaining people and making people smile.

‘I thought, “what encompasses all of that?” and I came up with acting.’



She’s back, back, back. Back again, again, again.

Not happy with how things panned out the first time around, Lizzie is back and looking for hubby 2.0.

And she’s got a whole new look!

Elizabeth recently opened up to a local publication about her health habits, saying that she loves her body ‘at any size’.

‘I’ve thought that when I weighed 49kg and when I’ve weighed 90kg. I want women to realise that we’re all so much more than a number on a scale,’ she added.

‘So, yes, I’ve lost some weight since I was a ‘huge’ size 10 when I was on MAFS, but that doesn’t mean I’m any ‘better’ now, just because I’m slimmer.’

A mother to twin boys, Poppy’s firecracker personality and heartbreaking relationship history makes her a fan favourite.

‘I’ve got two-year-old twins and when they were six-weeks old, my husband had a terrible accident,’ she recalls. ‘He tripped and fell into his co-worker’s vagina and he’s still stuck there!’

Eternally single, Connie faces two demons – her self esteem and her mother.

‘After a while you just kind of think, what’s wrong with me if every single person that I meet doesn’t want a bar of me? What am I doing wrong?’ she says, admitting that at 27, she’s lonely. ‘I don’t think I’m ugly but I don’t think there’s anything striking about me.’
As for her mum, well, she’s vocal about her hatred for the reality TV dating show.
‘I can’t stand that show. This show can be quite manipulating,’ she explains, telling Connie, ‘I think it’s ridiculous and catty. That’s everything you’re not.’

A mother-of-two, Mishel has a dismal dating history.

‘Why can’t I meet a guy that actually likes me?’ she asks relationship guru, John Aiken, who answered her question with another question. ‘How many guys are we talking about that have cheated on you?’

‘Seven. And I’ve only dated eight,’ Mishel admitted.

In a promo for the February 3 premiere, Mishel’s daughter is seen begging her mother to reconsider marrying a random, before spilling the tea at the reception.

‘Please, Mum. Don’t do this… he dropped a bit of a bombshell.’

She learns that her new spouse is a cheater. Cue the tears.
