‘We were so naive!’ Former Married At First Sight star Carly Bowyer reveals the MAJOR difference between this year’s cast and previous years

A former Married At First Sight star thinks the show’s participants may now be too savvy for reality TV.

Speaking on her Nova FM podcast, Finding a Unicorn, on Wednesday, Carly Bowyer claimed this year’s stars are too aware of the mechanics behind the show.

The 34-year-old appeared on the 2018 season of MAFS, and she branded this year’s show as ‘horrible’ and ‘painful to watch’.

She added: ‘We were just puppets for them and they were the puppeteers.’

Carly was partnered with Justin Fischer on the hit show, but later broke up with him and took up with co-star Troy Delmege, before eventually splitting from him, too.

‘I would say don’t go on a reality show to find love, you’re probably not going to find it. It’s virtually impossible,’ she told The Daily Telegraph in February.
