excellent candidates for the new season

Following the portraits of the singles from “Love is in the Meadow”, M6 will be broadcasting the weddings in its sixth season of “Married at First Sight” from Monday 21 March. Fourteen new graduates have ventured into science to solve their heart problems this new season boosted by the success of the “modern fairy tale” about Laure and Matthieu, the happy couple from the previous season.

“Laura and the Matthew Effect”

More than three million viewers followed Laure and Matthieu’s idyll last year. Still married, the couple even became a really small family with the arrival of a little girl in August 2021, just six months after their wedding was broadcast.

Between them, the newlyweds and parents proved that it was still possible to believe in the formula “They lived happily and had many children”.

It inevitably makes people envious, many people. 25,600 exactly, much more than the 10,000 applications for the previous season.

On the channel and production side, we are sure: there really is a “Laure and Matthieu effect”. “By seeing sincere, authentic people with whom they can identify … viewers realize they are not crazy,” delights Virginie Dhers, program director at M6.

With the blessing of the parents or not

It is clear that the program is actually no longer the subject of criticism, as when it was launched in 2016. On the contrary, it becomes more democratic with the seasons to the extent that a father has for the first time signed up his son for the experience.

Let the viewers be reassured, but some families still do not view their child’s decision to marry a complete stranger positively.

This is especially true for Bruno’s parents: marriage is a real institution for them, and divorce is not an option. “In my family, if we get married, we’d better be safe,” the 30-year-old sums up in search of love.

This engineer from the Alpes-Maritimes believes so strongly in experience that he is ready to take the risk of marrying a famous stranger despite the disagreement of his parents. “I recommend to the two experts,” he concludes optimistically.

Compatibility first

Bruno is not the only graduate fan of the program to try out the adventure this year. This is also the case with thirty-year-old Caroline, who admits “having seen all seasons or almost”. To her, the show sounds like a last chance.

Vegan and environmental activist, the young woman lives in Arvieux, a village in the Hautes-Alpes with about twenty inhabitants. Mother of a three-year-old boy, she also heads a herd of 18 dogs that she has collected from associations.

“I do not meet so many. In my case, it makes more sense to start with compatibility,” says Caroline confidently.

Beliefs and commitments are also stronger than the love for Axel. The young 30-year-old, who is passionate about nature and sports, has completely changed his life and left his hometown of Savoie to isolate himself in the mountains and become one with the nature he loves so much.

Among the other atypical profiles this season, Alicia, a 28-year-old nurse who no longer supports men who complain about nothing. The young Aixoise experienced a terrible traffic accident in which she lost her only sister. When she wakes up, the doctors tell her she will never go again. After 12 surgeries and years of rehabilitation, Alicia walks, runs, plays sports and is ready to live her life to the fullest with her charming prince, a beautiful story, if possible in the South of France.

Exit Grans, place in Gibraltar

Faced with its graduates experienced in the program, the two experts from the show decided to take them out of their comfort zone. “We realized that the participants had already learned a lot from the experiences from previous seasons. They knew the choreography, the setting, etc. “, apologizes Estelle Dossin, clinical psychologist, present since season 3.

This season 6 is thus marked by a great change: weddings no longer take place at the town hall of Grans, in Bouches-du-Rhône or even in France. Instead, the bride and groom and their families fly to Gibraltar.

“When faced with one form of uncertainty, one is no longer forced to trust the other,” explains the expert, for whom geographical distance is a positive bias that promotes involvement. “People who meet a new person in a dangerous, unknown place are more likely to find the other desirable,” adds Pascal De Sutter, a doctor of psychology who has been present since the start of the show. According to him, these relocated marriages allow couples to put all their chances on their side.
