You Won't Believe How Much Weight Some of the MAFS Contestants Put on During Filming

Married at First Sight’s Misel Karen has revealed she gained 13kg of weight whilst filming the hit reality show. In her candid Instagram post, the popular bride shared a before and after photo of herself. The first was from August 2019 when filming had just begun and then other from January 2020 during filming of the reunion show.

"It is quite obvious that during filming @mafs I gained a bit of extra 'Mishel' to love. An extra 13kgs of MESH!" she wrote. "I have been a curvy woman, ever since I started trying to have my babies. It was during that time my body started to change, change to a more voluptuous figure. It took me some time to get used to my new shape and start to embrace my curves; but I did it with age, confidence and positive affirmations." The mum-of-two told her followers she now weighted the dame weight she did when she was pregnancy with her daughter Eva and she hoped to lose it ahead of her 50th birthday in December. "Even though I believe curves are cool I just don't feel as healthy and fit as I did before I entered the experiment, so... it is my challenge to fit back into my 'Hen's Night' little black Bec and Bridge dress. I hope that you share my journey with me," she finished. Mishel wasn’t the only contestant to reveal she gained weight on the show. Controversial contestant Hayley Vernon commented on Mishe’s post that she’d gained 7kgs.
