EXPLAINED: HOW MUCH DO MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT CONTESTANTS GET PAID?
Married At First Sight producers are yet to reveal if their contestants are paid a salary.
However, Nasser Sultan, who appeared in season five of Married at First Sight Australia, revealed how much he got paid.
He told nowtolove.com: “You get $150 for the day, that’s it.
“But on top of that, you have to pay expenses – your living expenses with the woman that you marry.”
He added: “It’s not $150 clear. You still have to pay rent if you’re renting, you’ve gotta pay your rego and it’s 12 hour filming days.”
As $150 is around £78, this could be what UK contestants are paid while filming.
So if the cast were to get paid for five days of work a week it would work out to them earning around £1580 a month.
Another previous MAFS contestant Clark Sherwood, has spoken out about the money situation, saying: “There’s no financial gain from going on the show.”
