They’re the most talked-about couple to ever appear on Married At First Sight, but chatting to Woman’s Day just days after declaring their love for each other at the final commitment ceremony, Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson are ready to start their new chapter – and their fans could be coming along for the ride!
“We’re actually in talks to have our own reality show,” Bryce, 31, reveals.
“That’s what we’re looking at doing.”
The couple reveal there have been discussions around doing a Cam and Jules-style wedding special, and perhaps something even more substantial.
“It’d be amazing to showcase why we love each other so much and who we are as people outside of the show because we’re just two normal people, and maybe we weren’t supposed to be together but we’ve overcome all the odds,” Melissa, 31, adds.
While reality TV may not always be exactly as we see it, the pair insist that their love is real.
Although many viewers have appealed for Melissa to get out of what they perceive as a “toxic” relationship, she assures us she’s exactly where she wants to be.
“I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. I’m in a loving, safe and committed relationship with Bryce, and I’m in love! And besides, I’m a grown woman – I would have walked away long ago if I didn’t feel safe,” she says.
Now living together in Melbourne, the pair are wasting no time in planning out their life, with Bryce already spotted looking for a ring – ”I’ve been ransacking the house trying to find it!” says Melissa – and a baby well and truly underway.
“We’d be lying if we said we weren’t trying,” says Bryce.
Adds Melissa, “I never saw myself having kids, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction for us and it’s something I’m looking forward to.”
