There’s A Ridiculous New Show Where People Get Married To Complete Strangers


1. Look how delighted this woman is to meet her groom at the altar!

2. She is Jamie Otis, a 27-year-old from Harlem, and she’s about to marry 31-year-old Doug Hehner. Whom she doesn’t find attractive. But WHY?

3. Well, it’s for Married at First Sight, a new show on the FYI network.

And what happens is this. Four “experts” – a spiritualist, a sexologist, a psychologist, and a sociologist – pair up three couples, all aged between 26 and 33. After they’ve been married for a few weeks, they have to decide whether they should stay together.

4. Which is an, erm, interesting idea.


5. Anyway, that’s why Otis is standing next to a man she doesn’t fancy while his parents stare proudly on.


Find out how they get on every Tuesday.
