Are Tristan and Cassandra still together?

MAFS couple Cassandra and Tristan are not together, not only do neither contestant follow each other on Instagram, the pair didn't even make it through the experiment.

They couple seemed to try their best but during an emotional Commitment Ceremony towards the end of the show, Cass and Tristan call time on their relationship.

Whilst Tristan told Cass he was falling for her, she couldn't share the sentiment, speaking to 9entertainment, she said "By the time it got the arguing and the combat outweighing the fun that we had, then I was like 'No, we're not meant to be'."

But Tristan has managed to walk away from the experiment with his head held high, telling the publication, "When I was on the show with Cass, it was 50 per cent working on myself and 50 per cent working on my relationship with Cass. Now I do 100 per cent working on myself."

Are Collins and Natalie still together?

MAFS couple Natalie and Collins are not together, after famously quitting the experiment about two weeks in.

Natalie wrote leave in the couple’s first commitment ceremony, and despite being forced to stay another week after Collins wrote ‘Stay’. Natalie walked out on her on-screen husband early because she felt he was fake.

“I can’t listen to you without hearing ‘orchestra’," Natalie says in the episode, “I cannot communicate with someone who talks to me like we are on the set of Neighbours or Home & Away. It just feels so manufactured."

A source speaking to The Tab revealed that Natalie and Collins are “no longer on speaking terms” and according to them, the pair even fought at the reunion.

The source claimed that the pair had a huge argument, saying “Collins is still spiteful and keeps blaming her for robbing him of his opportunity. Things got really nasty quickly and they both just went their separate ways. Collins didn’t even want to be friends with Natalie afterwards, it’s really sh*tty.”

"We didn't speak for a little while after, it was hard for us both but a few months down the track we started talking again."

Sara revealed that the drama in the show was never really left behind in their relationship as Tim found it difficult to move on from it, "It was a constant battle, he would tell me 'I forgive you' and then it would come out that he wasn't 100 per cent moving on," Sara said.

"I was like we either do this or we don't we just can't keep rehashing things." But both Sara and Tim have also been photographed on dates with other people after filming.

Tim was papped kissing a mystery woman on the Gold Coast early in February, and according to Australia’s The Kyle & Jackie O Show, there were rumours everywhere that the reality star was now in a relationship with that same woman.

They’re so confident and happy in their relationship that they even got matching tattoos, which they shared on Tori's Instagram as she captioned, "Night 1 we joked about matching tattoos... and now we are here" next to a picture of her and Jack getting the new ink.

Are Andrea and Richard still together?

Fan favourite couple, Andrea and Richard are not together!

The pair broke up at the end of the experiment. Andrea recently spoke to The Daily Mail about the real reason the pair called it quits.

"I never said I wasn't into Richie. I'd always said ''I like you, I'm here, I'm trying''. But of course, I would pull back when boundaries were crossed time and time again," she told the publication.

"I've just never had anyone be so bold and open like Richie, and Richie's very open and I'm talking like even the toilet door I had to ask him to shut the toilet door," she said.

However, when it came down to it, it was a personality clash where Richard was brash, argumentative and unable to communicate or listen to Andrea properly.

When asked whether they've remained friends, "We're good with each other...I still care about him, and I know he still cares about me," she explained.

It's now been reported that Andrea could be dating fellow contestant Timothy who was originally paired with Lucinda.

A video has circulated, that was taken by Andrea and then posted on a Married At First Sight gossip Instagram page.

In the video, Andrea was on the couch with her daughter watching the Final Vows episodes that had just aired in Australia.

“We’re watching Jack and Tori’s final vows, Indi and I,” Andrea said before she panned the camera to reveal Timothy asleep on her couch. “With Timmy,” she said, “And, he’s so into it he’s fallen asleep. He’s that bored.”

Andrea has since spoken out to put any rumours to rest, she clarified to New Idea, that she and Timothy are just “beautiful friends.”

"There's nothing romantic there,” she said. “I adore him, and he adores me." According to Andrea, Timothy had been “a rock” and making friends had been “the best part of the experiment.”

“The people with kind hearts found each other in the experiment which has been really special,” she finalised.

Unfortunately, Jonathan and Lauren are definitely not together.

The groom was photographed kissing a fellow bride from this season, Ellie Dixie, on a beach in Sydney early in March.

Ellie Dix was paired with Ben Walters by the experts but according to the Daily Mail, she and Jonathan kept in contact after Married At First Sight finished filming and got together after the show.

"Jono and Ellie maintained contact after she left the show, but the romance only escalated once Jono ended things with Lauren at the Final Vows. Their real-life meeting a few days later revealed an undeniable chemistry."

“Just hitting the beach a lot, getting my regular coffee by Nobby's Beach when I heard an accent in there and I had to approach her," he told the publication about how they met.

It sounds like things are going great and moving fast because they’ve already moved in with one another, “Mate, love her to bits, and she's moved in," Ben told the publication.

Are Madeleine and Ash still together?

MAFS Madeleine and Ash are not together, the pair didn’t even make it to the end of the social experiment.

They only entered halfway through the season as intruders, but Madeleine chose to write ‘leave’ at her first Commitment Ceremony whilst Ash wrote to stay.

It’s unprecedented to allow the couples to change their minds after the Commitment Ceremony and because one half wrote ‘stay’ the couple would normally have had to stay in the experiment for another week.

However, Yahoo! Lifestyle revealed there “was a lot more” going on but due to the nature of what was happening, claiming the producers of MAFS Australia “did not want to dramatise it, and felt it was easier to let them go quickly and quietly".

Speaking with Behind The Edit Podcast, Ash revealed the true chaos that went down behind the cameras.“There was a lot of chaos that didn't make it to TV,” he said. “You only got a taste of what went on, it was crazy.”

“You didn't see jumping on tables, screaming at the universe, rolling around on the floor, not participating in any activity that we did. We went on a boat and she hated it, we did clay [pottery] and she hated it, didn't participate, just wild antics.”

Ash also revealed on the podcast that he had not spoken to or stayed in touch with Madeleine since their filming ended, in fact it was reported to the tabloids that no one had heard from Madeleine since she walked out of the show at all.

Are Eden and Jayden still together?

MAFS couple Jayden and Eden are still together, which wouldn't have surprised anyone at the start of the experiment, however after Jayden's confession during Confessions Week, no one would have blamed Eden if she decided to end things.

But the pair were photographed at the start of February holding hands at a petrol station in Queensland’s Gold Coast.

According to a source speaking to the So Dramatic! Podcast, “I saw a very loved-up Jayden and Eden holding hands at a service station… They looked super cute and happy, guess they lasted the MAFS sh** show."

Are Lucinda and Timothy still together?

Lucinda and Timothy are not together. Thought their relationship status since the show has seemed unclear. At the reunion show – which airs in the UK on 30th April – they confirmed they're still in each other's lives and had only grown closer since the experiment ended despite arriving separately.

Timothy explained: "We still talk every couple of days. We are pretty on track. It's amazing. So there's hope, yes for sure. I always said it wasn't an ending of something, but the beginning of something."

Lucinda added: "I've got the perfect husband for me. This fella is a total spunk."

However, after filming wrapped Yahoo! Lifestyle noticed Lucinda posted and deleted a comment on one of Timothy's posts, which they managed to get screenshots of, in which she called him my 'ex'.

Under a photo of Timothy posing in a black t-shirt, Lucinda reportedly commented “my hunky ex.”

She's also recently described him as 'a dear friend'.

The So Dramatic! podcast, reported that Michael has moved on after the show finished filming, with one of the gossip podcast’s sources claiming they saw him partying in a Melbourne nightclub in 2023.

“I met Michael from MAFS in the upstairs bathrooms of Revs back in Nov/Dec,” they said. “He was pashing two of my friends throughout the night."

According to another source, there was never really much hope for things to work out between the two grooms, “Stephen was very open about having no connection with Michael from the second he laid eyes on him.” they said.

“They aren’t on the show for that long. They only last two to three weeks.”

Are Jade and Ridge still together?

Yes, intruders Jade and Ridge are still together! The bride posted a huge spoiler on the temporary Instagram account that she made whilst her official one was run by the show’s management teams.

In a story, she posted a close-up of a man covered in tattoos, one of which has her name inked on it.

The tattoos were very quickly identified as a match to Ridge’s, so it’s safe to assume the pair are happily together and have no plans of going anywhere.
