Another day, another leaked MAFS 2023 bride. It’s been revealed that Melbourne childcare worker Claire Nomarhas will star in the upcoming season of Married at First Sight.

Ever since Daily Mail papped photos of MAFS filming the women’s hens parties in Sydney, the brides who appeared in the pics have been getting identified left right and centre.

So far, we know that influencer Melinda Willis, podcaster Tahnee Cook, influencer Bronte Schofield and baker Alyssa Barmondem will appear on the upcoming season. Now, it’s been revealed that they will be joined by childcare worker Claire Nomarhas.

Like the other brides – except for Melinda – Claire’s social media channels have all been switched to private, so there isn’t a lot of information floating around about her, yet. However, a high school friend told the Daily Mail that the bride-to be is a “firecracker” and claimed that she “caused a lot of trouble in high school”.

Melinda has a huge social media following of 150,000 followers and is followed by past MAFS cast members KC Osborne (season six), Jules Robinson (season six), Joshua Pihlak (season seven) and Jason Engler (season seven).

Bronte’s Instagram is littered with photos of her wearing bikinis in beautiful places, and she already boasts 11,000 followers on the platform.

Tahnee is also very active on social media and has over 45,000 followers across her social media channels and runs The Like Us Girls podcast.

While Alyssa’s job of baking is rather humble in comparison to the glamorous lives of influencers, she does have a baking Instagram account that boasts 18,900 followers.

Filming of season ten of MAFS reportedly began in June this year and is slated to premiere in early 2023. MAFS dominated ratings throughout season nine and was picked up in the US and the UK.

Adrian Swift, Nine’s Head of Content Production & Development, spoke with the Herald Sun earlier this year about the upcoming season and teased that the show’s Logie-nominated sexologist Alessandra Rampolla will have a much larger role in 2023.

“We will get Alessandra a bit more involved in the sexuality part of it,” he said. “What we have always found is a complete bellwether for how a relationship [on MAFS] is going is how sexually they are getting on.

“And that getting on might be sexual tension, which is good, it might be sexual resolution, which is good, or it might be, and this often happens, sexual resolution and then nothing.”
