Which ‘Married at First Sight’ Couples Have Their Own YouTube Channels?

Many of the cast members on Lifetime’s Married at First Sight develop hefty social media followings after they appear on the show.

Some cast members become popular partly because Married at First Sight fans can’t help but root for them in the face of their difficult on-screen marriages. Meanwhile, fans often want to follow the stories of the still-married couples after their time on Lifetime’s social experiment.

These six Married at First Sight couples have YouTube channels of their own, where they talk about romance, parenting, and the behind-the-scenes secrets of getting married to a stranger on reality TV.

Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner

Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner didn’t exactly have a promising start on the first season of Married at First Sight in New York. In fact, Jamie wasn’t even attracted to her husband while she walked down the aisle – and had a memorable meltdown in her bridal gown.

Since then, however, Jamie and Doug have made their marriage work – even becoming the proud parents of two kids. Jamie, who first appeared on the sixteenth season of The Bachelor, now hosts Married at First Sight: Unfiltered.

On their YouTube channel, Hanging with the Hehners, Doug and Jamie share content about postpartum body positivity, pregnancy, and parenting. They have a second channel, Hanging with the Hehner Kids, where they show videos of family-friendly activities.

Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre

Shawniece Jackson and Jephte Pierre were expecting their daughter, Laura, before Married at First Sight season 6 came to a close. Still, they had a rocky road to love – even removing their rings and separating at one point.

Now, Shawniece and Jephte are going strong. Shawniece’s YouTube channel features beauty and hair tutorials that draw on her cosmetology background, but the Married at First Sight star’s most popular video tells the true story behind her marriage, separation, and reunion with Jephte.

Deonna McNeill and Greg Okotie

Deonna McNeill and Greg Okotie quickly became fan favorites after they tied the knot on Married at First Sight season 9 in Charlotte. They’re currently expecting their first baby.

After many requests from Married at First Sight fans, Deonna and Greg started a YouTube channel at the end of 2020. So far, they’ve shared videos about their clothing brand, Akpesiri, as well as about the products they’re buying for their new addition and the struggles of COVID-19.

Elizabeth Bice and Jamie Thompson

Many fans weren’t sure if Elizabeth Bice and Jamie Thompson would stay together on Married at First Sight season 9. After all, they coined the phrase “basic Caucasian sex” during one of their many infamous on-screen fights.

Now, however, Elizabeth and Jamie have a strong marriage. On Elizabeth’s YouTube channel, she focuses on interviewing other reality TV stars and Married at First Sight castmates, like Mindy Shiben and Amber Bowles. Jamie also has a channel and has shared a few behind-the-scenes videos with his wife.

Miles Williams and Karen Landry

Miles Williams and Karen Landry surprised fans by saying “yes” to their marriage on Decision Day during Married at First Sight season 11 in New Orleans. After their season ended, they became fan favorites, quickly earning over 60,000 followers on their YouTube channel.

So far, Miles and Karen have shared tell-all Q&A sessions, the inside scoop about their relationship and Married at First Sight, and never-before-seen wedding photos on YouTube.

Woody Randall and Amani Smith

Sometimes, the Married at First Sight experts just get it right. That certainly seemed to be the case for Woody Randall and Amani Smith, who tied the knot on season 11. Fans immediately swooned over Woody and Amani, hailing them as “soulmates.”
