Despite his appearance and his career as a professional kickboxer, Jayden, 26, is a big teddy bear looking for love, and we’re hoping he’ll find it in new Married At First Sight Australia 2024 ‘wife’ Eden.

Eden is a 28-year-old recruitment manager who lives in the Gold Coast, to which the newlyweds discovered they live mere minutes apart.

After having her heartbroken, Eden admits Jayden won’t be the only man in her life, “I have a four-year-old golden retriever called Cub.”

For big softie Jayden, this was a huge tick. But during the wedding reception, his insecurities began to rear their heads.

“She doesn’t party, she doesn’t drink, she loves walks, she’s got a golden retriever. She’s literally a female version of me, ticks every box and she’s stunning,” he confessed to his brother Mitch, who appeared in MAFS alongside Ella May Ding.

“Probably the only bad thing is when you meet a girl, you can tell straightaway if they like you or not. I got the vibe she doesn’t really like me.”

Mitch reassured his brother. Later in the night, Jayden did the mature thing and pulled Eden for a chat to discuss her feelings. Communication is key!

“I think it was funny when Jayden said he wasn’t sure if I was into him and I was like ‘no I definitely am’. I’m often told that I have a bit of a hard exterior and I’m very composed so its quite hard to read me,” Eden said.

“But it feels like were both on the same page ad that gives me a lot of confidence going into the honeymoon.”

After a less than graceful, but wildly romantic first dance, the new MAFS couple act like they’ve know each other for years.

“Without speaking too soon, she’s hopefully the one,” Jayden told the camera crew.

However, a task during confession week may have landed the couple in rocky waters. Jayden, who has openly admitted he was cheated on, confessed secret that completely blindsided her.
 
“I told her I was willing to give her another chance, but… I’m gonna sleep with her best friend while she watches. One of her friends agreed to do it. SO after a little bit of chatting for a few days, it happened,” he said.
 
Eden asked her husband if he’d regretted his actions, to which he responded: “I don’t regret it.”
 
“The story was gross and I didn’t like it all, but he didn’t seem to regret it – that was the concerning part,” she told the crew. Eden felt incredibly ‘triggered’ given her own past and sought comfort from fellow bride Sara.
 
 

Are Jayden & Eden together outside of the experiment?

While the season is only just beginning, many of these couples have either survived the experiment or ended it – given filming has ended. A photo from October 2023 may have spoiled how Jayden and Eden end up.

On October 8, 2023, Jayden’s brother Mitch shared a photo of himself cuddling up to a golden retriever dog who suspiciously looks a lot like Eden’s dog, Cub. His caption didn’t reveal any details as it read, “What a guy!❤️”. However, the post was edited roughly on February 1,2024. Jayden and Eden’s wedding episode releasing on January 31. What was Mitch editing roughly three months after posting?

Eagle-eyed fans spotted the potential spoiler not long after their wedding, and flooded the Instagram commented section.

“Edens dog!! lol,” one fan wrote.

Another commented: “I see what you did there.”

“Omg I hope this is a good sign!” another said.

Despite the fans theories, Mitch has neither confirmed or denied who owns the pooch.
