The new season of Married At First Sight will premiere on Channel Nine next week.

But it seems controlling the cast is already proving to be a headache for the network with some ‘fame-hungry’ participants refusing to hand over their Instagram logins.

A handful of brides and grooms are holding up Nine from announcing their official social media accounts because they won’t surrender their passwords.

‘Some people have refused to hand over their login details because they’ve still got questions and concerns about their edit,’ a source told Daily Mail Australia.

‘It’s standard practice for the network to have control of their Instagrams while the show is airing, and for several weeks afterwards, but some cast members are reluctant to play ball.’ 

‘They still don’t have any answers from production after their experience filming the reunion last month. They’re worried about their edit,’ the insider added.

As of Monday morning, several key cast members still have full control to their Instagram accounts and have been posting as normal.

‘Everyone has been left in the dark. We were supposed to be announced on Friday morning, but they kept delaying it without any explanation,’ a cast member said.

It follows reports Nine bosses were furious to discover some brides and grooms were already trying to make the most of their newfound fame.

‘The cast have all handed their Instagram accounts over now ahead of the show, and production have seen some of them already DMing brands trying to score freebies and Instagram deals,’ a source told Yahoo Lifestyle.

‘Some of them have been warned this breaches their contracts and makes the show look like a joke.’

Brides Janelle Han, Melinda Willis and Evelyn Ellis have already scored themselves blue-tick verification on Instagram before even debuting on TV.

Beauty CEO Melinda has the largest following at 149,000 followers, while TikToker Janelle sits at 36,700, and former Big Brother UK contestant Evelyn at 64,500.

MAFS’ executive producers Tara McWilliams, who is credited with transforming the show into the ratings juggernaut it is today, previously acknowledged that some of the participants are not ‘100 per cent genuine’.

She told Mediaweek it’s ‘not realistic’ to expect all the brides and grooms to be ‘only motivated by finding love’.

But regardless of their intentions, she does make sure all the contestants are ‘authentic’ in their own way and that they sincerely want to take part in the experiment – even if romance isn’t their primary motivation.
