Brett, 35, grew up in Gretna, Louisiana, and works in IT. He’s ready to walk down the aisle and is a firm believer that arranged marriages can work, as that’s historically how many people have found partners. He’s matched with 30-year-old Olivia, who is originally from Bossier City, Louisiana. She has a master’s degree in nursing and now works in a stroke center in New Orleans. She’s worked hard to get where she is in her career and is ready to put the same effort into a relationship.  

Amelia and Bennett 

Amelia, 27, is a medical resident originally from Richmond, Virginia. Her grandparents had an arranged marriage, which led to her belief that it’s possible to learn to love someone. The show’s experts — Dr. Viviana Coles, Dr. Pepper Schwartz, and Pastor Cal Roberson — match her with Bennett, 28, who grew up in New Jersey and is the artistic director of a theatre company. He’s been looking for the right partner for years but is encouraged by the experts’ past success at matching couples. 

Amani and Woody 

Thirty-year-old Woody is a New Orleans native who currently works as a teacher and coach. His mother taught him love and kindness and he’s looking for a partner with whom he can share those values. Amani, 29, who was born in Northern California and raised in Chicago, moved to New Orleans to attend college. She works in the non-profit sector and want to start her own youth-focused non-profit one day. 

Christina and Henry 

Henry is 35 and was born and raised in Arabi, Louisiana. He’s a clinical recruiter who is ready to find a partner and settle down. But he’s having trouble finding that special someone. Dating apps have been a bust and his friends and colleagues don’t have anyone else to set him up with. He sees participating in Married at First Sight as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that he would be crazy to pass up. The experts match him with Christina, 30, who was raised by a single mom in Houma, Louisiana. She’s a flight attendant who recently got out of a five-year-relationship. She hasn’t put a lot of effort into finding a partner and is eager to let the expert do the work for her.
