Right up until the groom’s contentious final vows, Married At First Sight’s Tori Adams, 27, and Jack Dunkley, 35, proved one of the more controversial couples on MAFS Season 11. And yet, despite the naysayers, these two are one of the only original couples to remain together since the experiment.

Now, the duo have celebrated one year since they first met on the drama fuelled reality series.

Taking to her Instagram in July 2024, Tori wrote that she had “no idea” what she was in for when she signed up for the experiment but had given the experts a list of what she wanted in a man.

The aspiring influencer then added that the experts had “delivered” by matching her with Jack – and the rest they say is history!

The update comes a few weeks after the couple hinted towards starting a family of their own.

Tori posted a photo to her Instagram in late May holding a baby whom she called “little squish,” Jack commenting: “You look adorable holding that bubba honey 😍.”

Earlier that same month they moved in together (finally), and Jack took to his Instagram stories to respond to fan questions – one of which asked when he and Tori would be having kids.

“Tori and I are happy building a life we want to lead at the moment. Many things we wish to accomplish first. I’ve said two years,” the 35-year-old said at the time.

The personal trainer continued to talk very highly of his partner and mentioned the things he loved most about her.

“She’s a gorgeous person inside and out, loyal and driven and hilarious,” Jack said.

These two have been through the trenches and the relationship certainly hasn’t been easy, but fans of the show seem to be coming around to this controversial couple.

Their ‘marriage’ was a hot topic during the 2024 season of MAFS. Their fellow contestants, fans of the show, and even the experts were left less than impressed by Jack’s behaviour – including his alleged cheating scandal with his ex-girlfriend Courtney Jade, and his offensive “muzzle your woman” and “whale” comments.

At each commitment ceremony, expert John Aiken grilled Jack on his misdemeanors and questioned why Tori put up with him. The couple consistently assured John that if Tori didn’t feel “safe, secure, or respected” in the relationship, she would have left the experiment.

And yet, Jack was still struggling to find a “sexual spark” with Tori – who never had the same reservations about her groom.

“There is definitely a sexual energy there and sexual chemistry is super important to me,” Tori said on the show.

Like Tori, Jack has “quite a sexual appetite”, according to the personal trainer himself. “I can tell within 10 seconds if I want to be physical with this girl,” he has previously said.

“I know if I have that and I’m physically attracted the sex is going to be there and I can just keep growing on that connection.”

He then admitted that he felt “no sexual sparks” with Tori. “We’re not sexually connected at all.” Nevertheless, it appears they worked through this obstacle and are still together.
