Married at first sight, Season 9 where are they now?
Usually, Reality show relationships don’t seem to have much life. At least that’s what we have seen for the past few years. So what will be the case for Married reality couples? Let’s look at each of the couples and what’s their current state.
Jamie Thompson and Elizabeth Bice
First up on the list is Jamie and Thompson. If you remember their life at the beginning, you may have seen their relationship was going through bumpy roads due to Elizabeth’s spoiled attitude and Jamie’s temper, and many may have expected that this relationship won’t last long, considering their initial chemistry was almost non-existing. In fact, Elizabeth’s own parents joked about it during their taped confessionals.
But it seems like all of those assumptions were wrong as this couple is living happily, despite their initial bumps. Jamie and Elizabeth do decide to split. This was because there were small clashes between them, and since there wasn’t any benefit of counsellors and cameras around them, it only raised the tension since the show had ended.
The unexpected illness of Elizabeth’s beloved dog also made them stay away for a while. Despite all of the issues between them, the couple eventually reconciled and decided to move to the Bay Area in 2020. Since then, the couples are currently living in Santa Barbara, California. Jamie is currently working as a tech consultant, and Elizabeth is busy building her empire as an entrepreneur as well as a social media influencer. They also starred in Married at First Sight: Couples Cam.
It seems like both of them are spending an amazing life together as Elizabeth had said that the little adventures would never get old with him. According to her, they have grown as a team and soulmates. She thanks him for taking the crazy adventure with her. Even though Jamie doesn’t spend much time on social media, he labelled his wife as his best friend in one of his recent Instagram posts. This clearly shows that the couples are having a pretty good time together.
Keith Manley and Iris Caldwell
As for Keith Manley and Iris Caldwell, they seemed to have a great foundation for a successful marriage since they were sharing similar values and goals for their future. Unfortunately, things went the opposite for this couple.
While Iris wanted to make their marriage work, Keith came to the conclusion that he did not want to be married to her since he didn’t believe that Iris was the person he was ready to settle down with. And on the decision day itself, Keith politely requested a divorce. Currently, Keith can be seen spending his time in Arizona and Southern California. As for Iris, she is currently pursuing her career in modelling.
Greg Okotie and Deonna McNeill
Looking at Greg Okotie and Deonna McNeill, we have good news for you. As not only they are still together, but they’re also now in the process of expanding their family. Back in September, the couple announced that Deonna is pregnant. Greg also expressed his hopes for a large family in his Instagram post. He says that he feels truly a blessing to be married to Deonna and for her to carry their first kid. He expresses that he wants to expand their family to eight children’s.
He continues by saying that it is crazy how their life changed with trust and a leap of faith. He then thanks all for the overwhelming love, support, and well wishes. The couple reappeared on the small screen through the spinoff series called Married at First Sight: Couples Cam. The show is about couples from various seasons of Married at First Sight and keeps fans updated on their relationships.
Matthew Gwynne and Amber Bowles
For Matthew Gwynne and Amber Bowles, it was, from the beginning, a bumpy ride. Even though Amber was fully committed to her relationship, Matthew seemed unsure from the get-go since, in the show itself, we saw him having more interest in showcasing his musical talents on the show than getting to know his new bride. Not only that, Matthew’s family didn’t know about him participating in MAFS, thus only Matthew’s friends attended his wedding. Ultimately, they decided to split.
Amber later said that Matthew did nothing for their Marriage to last or even anything for that divorce. She says that he completely wasted her time, which really frustrates her. She also said that even though she is working on finalizing the divorce, Matt has been slowing the process. After the split, we haven’t seen Matt with anyone to call it a relationship, at least that’s what looking at his social posts says. Instead, he’s enjoying his time with friends, as well as being active with sports.
Although, during her time in the show, Amber had said that she received intel from several people that her husband was spending most of the nights fraternizing with various women behind Amber’s back. And as for Amber, she confirmed that she’s now been dating another man, whom she once described as the kindest, the most patient person she knows.
