Everyone’s favourite love-to-hate reality show Married At First Sight is returning to our screens in just a few short weeks.
Watch below: See the first official sneak-peak at this year's season of Married At First Sight
In preparation of what is sure to be another knockout, blockbuster, drama-filled season, we’ve been doing our best to get to know this year’s brides and grooms-to-be.
But it seems that for one of the contestants, this isn’t his first brush with reality TV. Newly unearthed footage of groom Mikey Pembroke has revealed that the 29-year-old has previously done a stint on the now axed Deal Or No Deal back in 2013.

The resurfaced footage shows the operations manager from Sydney greeting host Andrew O’Keefe with a hug before dancing around the stage.
"Flashback Friday to deal or no deal #fail," he captioned one post, which was uploaded in 2015 but has been tracked back to an episode in 2013.
Mikey’s ex-girlfriend, Katie Williams is also no stranger to reality TV. The athlete and Instagram influencer appeared on the first season of Australian Ninja Warrior back in 2017.
On Channel Nine’s official MAFS website, Mikey’s bio describes him as a “private school boy from Sydney's leafy north shore”.
“Although Mikey has always enjoyed the spoils of an affluent upbringing, he is genuine and open-minded, with a solid work ethic.”
“He recently stepped up to help run the family business: a nursing home that his grandfather founded.”

It seems as though Mikey isn’t the only contestant on the 2020 season that is familiar with the trials and tribulations of television. For 32-year-old real estate agent, Aleks Markovic, this isn’t the first time she’s looked to reality TV to find love. The bride from Perth has previously tried her luck on another dating show, Take Me Out.
