This year's Married At First Sight has given us quite the scandals and pre and post show surprises, but nothing makes more sense than this: Bryce from MAFS was once a secret actor - and wow, we're not surprised.
Per The Wash, an unearthed interview with the now controversial MAFS star in 2010 reveals he once was an aspiring actor-to-be. In fact, you might've seen his 20-year-old baby face on a little show called Home and Away.
According to a 2010 interview with The Morning Bulletin, Bryce Ruthven had a guest role on Summer Bay as Aden Jefferies (Todd Lasance)'s cousin.
Even weirder, it doesn't sound like this was a one time thing. The article continues, adding that Bryce trained at the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) in Sydney.
If you don't know, the performing arts college has such famous alumni as Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette, Sam Worthington and Bridie Carter.
Elsewhere, he was a semi-finalist in the 2009 Next New York Model Search, and played lead roles in a feature film, a patient on Channel Seven's All Saints and appeared in a Nokia commercial.

"Soccer is my main priority at the moment, but if it doesn't work out I will definitely keep pursuing acting," a young 20-year-old Bryce Ruthven told the outlet in 2010. "I actually haven't told my agent I've moved yet."
He also went on to add that he remained friends with many of his Summer bay co-stars including Todd, Lincoln Lewis (Geoff Campbell) and David Roberts (Xavier Austin).
According to a screenshot of his LinkedIn, via The Wash, he also was a sports reporter for Seven's Local News in Central Queensland, and a TV presenter on MTV.
