Married At First Sight boss Tara McWilliams has admitted that some of the contestants appearing on the show are not “100 per cent genuine”.

‘We’ll never know how genuine people are (before going on the show). Everyone is really there because they enjoy conflicting opinions,” she explained.

“It’s about being in the ‘bubble,’ experiencing a rollercoaster of emotions and overcoming relationship challenges,” she said.

McWilliams said that many times the show’s producers have had doubts about the authenticity of the couples and have had to expel them.

“I can probably count on two fingers the number of times it’s happened in places we’ve gone, ‘We’re not buying it and it’s time to go,’ and I’m not going to say who those couples are.” she said.

“I’m talking about the entire time we’ve done this show, we’re talking about seven, eight seasons or whatever…” he said.

“We put a plan in place to get them to leave, we called them and said, ‘We’re not going to believe this and we’re not a place for you to come and find fame, you have to invest in your relationship.'”

Supporting McWilliams’ statements, producer Alex Spurway added: “It’s the investment in the relationship and the experiment.”

“You have to want to be there, you have to want to do the work, you have to want to participate.”

However, McWilliams does not shy away from acknowledging that the show's producers sometimes have doubts about the couples' authenticity.
