Married at First Sight has been on for 14 seasons, and some installments haven’t been as good as others. Check out all of the worst MAFS seasons.
There are 14 Married at First Sight seasons and some of them are better than others, and it’s time to take a look at the worst seasons in the show’s long history. Whether because of unlikable cast members, forced drama, or poor matches, there are some seasons that many Married at First Sight fans would rather forget. Check out all of the worst MAFS seasons and how they made the cut.
Many of the earlier seasons rank higher for Married at First Sight fans because of the organic drama, rather than the more produced drama of later seasons. While most MAFS couples do not have good track records in terms of staying together, they still bring the entertainment with hilarious mismatches. Fans remember Brett Lindsey and Olivia Cornu from MAFS due to their disastrous marriage in season 11, which was one one of the best seasons from the franchise. Some couples are obvious mismatches, but bring the wrong kind of drama, like season 12’s Paige Banks and Chris Williams. Many viewers believe that Chris overstayed his welcome on the show.

Married at First Sight season 4 did not bring the same excitement as the premiere season and season 2. MAFS seemed to hit a lull at season 3, and the obvious lack of chemistry between many of the couples made it hard for fans to root for them in season 4. Derek Schwartz and Heather Seidel only lasted until their honeymoon before ending their relationship. Plus, having only two other couples as the focus made the season less interesting for the viewers. Unsurprisingly, all of the couples eventually divorced, leading to MAFS season 4 becoming one of the worst seasons in the show’s history.
Many of the middle MAFS seasons gave fans all of the drama that they wanted, and later seasons (like season 10) were a letdown. By this point, several of the cast members seemed more into joining the show for fame, and many of them played the villain on MAFS season 10. From Zach Justice refusing to move into the shared apartment with his wife to Brandon Reid’s undeniable bad attitude on the show, it was hard to get invested in the relationships.
Another poor season was MAFS season 12. It may have been because the bar was set so high by season 11’s drama, but it failed to live up to fans’ standards. Many viewers felt that the show was becoming more scripted and believed that the cast was acting unnatural. Fans could not fathom why Paige Banks would stay with MAFS’ Chris after he revealed he was engaged weeks before coming on the show, and was potentially having a child with his ex’s baby. There were also some questionable matches, as outgoing Haley Harris was obviously not going to stay with quirky Jacob Harder. Fans will have to wait until Married at First Sight season 14 ends to see whether it makes the list of the worst seasons, or ranks higher than past installments.
