June 2017 Premiere Highlights

“MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT”

Married at First Sight is an extreme social experiment that follows singles yearning for a life-long partnership as they agree to a provocative proposal: getting legally married to a stranger the moment they first meet. A team of experts – sociologist Dr. Pepper Schwartz, communication and relationship expert, Rachel DeAlto, and marriage counselor, Pastor Calvin Roberson, create what they believe are three compatible couples based on scientific matchmaking. The couples will not meet until they walk down the aisle and see each other face-to-face, for the first time, at the altar.

Over the course of several weeks, episodes capture each couple’s journey as they go from wedding, to honeymoon, to early nesting, to the daily struggle of working on their marriage. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together or decide to divorce?  Over 40,000 candidates nationwide have applied to be married at first sight. Season five will follow singles from the Chicago, Illinois area. Previous seasons followed couples from New York, Atlanta and Miami.
