Married At First Sight has a rate of divorce higher than the national average, which is already a whopping 35%, and season 10 has been no different.
Out of the twelve couples who competed on this year’s series, The Brag can reveal that only two are still together: Tahnee and Ollie and Melinda and Layton, per a source close to the couples.
Ollie and Tahnee’s relationship was generally strong on the show, but many readers would be surprised to learn the ever-tumultuous Melinda and Layton are still going strong.
And despite stories and paparazzi images suggesting that Duncan and Alyssa and perhaps even Lyndall and Cameron might have had a chance to go the distance, our source confirms they’ve all parted ways. In fact, Duncan has since come out and admitted he is currently dating Evelyn.
By the time the season wrapped, all the other couples ended up in the ‘failed’ category.
When you take the series as a whole, the list of couples still together is as follows: Erin Bateman and Bryce Mohr (season 2), Cam Merchant and Jules Robinson (season 6), Martha Kalifatidis and Michael Brunelli (season 6), Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson (season 8), Kerry Knight and Johnny Balbuziente (season 8).
For those doing the maths at home, that means out of the 95 couples in show history, 7 of them are still together. That’s a 93% divorce rate. Maybe try the traditional route? 35% doesn’t sound so bad now!

If despite all of this info, you’re still keen to get on the show, you’ll be happy to know the show is casting for season 11 as we speak.
The reality TV show posted a casting call on Instagram saying that they’re looking looking for applicants “committed to finding love”.
“Married At First Sight is searching for men and women of all ages and backgrounds who are genuinely committed to finding love. This groundbreaking social experiment uses science and psychology to help Australian singles meet their perfect partner. But there’s a catch… you won’t get to meet your future husband or wife until your wedding day!” The caption read.
