Ranked: The MAFS Australia 2023 cast members who have the most Instagram followers so far

Loads of them are already on 100k


Married at First Sight Australia producers have a different take when it comes to the social media of the cast members on their show.

The brides and grooms are unable to post on their Instagram accounts while episodes of the show are airing to prevent viewers being spoiled. Producers are in charge of the cast’s Instagram accounts, posting on their behalf with commentary of each episode.

As such, viewers are able to somewhat engage with the cast through following them on their social media accounts. So, who has the most followers out of the bunch?

Here is a ranking of the cast of Married at First Sight 2023 who currently have the most followers on Instagram following their appearance on the show.

Hugo – 9.6k
