Woody says a recurring dream about his wedding day led him to ‘MAFS’

In a new interview with Madame Noire, Woody admits his dating life was rather colorful prior to filming MAFS.

As for why he’s trading in the single life to marry a stranger, Woody wants someone to share his life with. Another sign that it was time to hang up his self-proclaimed “f**k boy days” is a recurring dream.

“The reason I decided to participate in MAFS is because I dreamed one day I would be married, have a wedding but could never see my bride’s face. I had that same dream for years and it never made sense. Honestly, I looked at MAFS as an opportunity to make a dream come to reality,” he explained.
