MARRIED at First Sight’s dinner party scenes always feature a fair amount of chaos and drama, from arguments to drinks.
But according to a British groom currently starring in the E4 series, there’s one dinner party secret that viewers never see on camera.
Dinner parties are a staple of MAFS and one of the many activities that viewers crave every week when they tune in.
But in an exclusive interview, Thomas Kriaras, who works in investment communications, revealed that despite the drama we see on screen, filming sometimes took hours.
The 27-year-old said: “The dinner parties take so long if you don’t give them anything.”
“If nothing happens, they keep going and going until they catch something.
“We all mostly got along well for the first few weeks, so the nights continued!”
Thomas currently stars in the popular series and is married to Rosaline Darlington.
He remains tight-lipped about how far he and Ros get after the experiment, but credits her with helping him regain his confidence.
“I wouldn’t have made it through without Ros,” he insists. “She gave me my spark back. I have to give her credit for that and I feel truly blessed.”
“I am so grateful to her and viewers will see that we are embarking on a tremendous journey.”
“The lows are low, but the highs are blooming high.”
The MAFS star also told The Sun that he secretly wanted to quit the show because of manipulative and competitive castmates.
Although he didn’t name any names, he said he couldn’t handle the “manipulation from other cast members.”
