Married at First Sight is now into its sixth season with a few successful marriages, albeit more failures than successes.

For years now, many fans of the show have pondered whether or not the cast gets paid for marrying a stranger. Well, that answer is yes and we can now reveal to you just how much.

According to Radar Online, the season one cast of the show, which included Jamie Otis, Doug Hehner, Cortney Hendrix, Jason Carrion, Monet Bell and Vaughn Copeland, were paid $15,000 each! Not bad.

That was however back in 2014, so it’s no wonder that the pay rate has since gone up for the later seasons.

Radar reports that the season three cast, which included Ashley Doherty, David Norton, Neil Bowlus, Sam Role, Tres Russell and Vanessa Nelson, received $20,000 to $25,000 each for doing the show.

However, the fact that the show’s participants are getting paid does not mean the show is fake. This is the norm for reality television as those who appear on these shows usually have to take time off work to do filming and promotion for the show. So perhaps it’s only fair that they get compensated.
