The New Zealand version of Married At First Sight returns with a diverse and eclectic cast that easily triumphs over Australian singles.
MAFS NZ unveiled the official cast of the second season on Sunday, featuring a same-sex couple, a Jewish teacher, girlfriends and boyfriends born abroad and much more.
Leading the group is the influencer of Instagram fashion, Samuel Levi, 25, who is the best friend of homosexual boyfriend villains last season, Benjamin Blackwell.

The people of the society briefly appeared on the screen last season as part of Ben's "nice committee" circle of friends, but now he has returned as a true boyfriend.
He already had to avoid speculation that he is using the program for fame, and told the New Zealand Herald that he is definitely looking for love and that he is "ready to settle down" at the tender age of 25.
Despite shying away from the fame of love, Samuel's wedding ceremony will feature a number of celebrity kiwis, such as the unmarried rejected Alysha Brown, television personality Erin Simpson and, of course, Ben Blackwell.
