It's no secret Married At First Sight's Bryce Ruthven has crossed paths with many reality stars in his time, including fellow MAFS alumni, thanks to his career in radio.
It turns out, however, Bryce spent time outside of his radio show with former groom Michael Goonan and bride KC Osborne, before applying for the reality series himself.
Speaking exclusively on our new podcast Love In Reality, KC reveals she spent an evening with Bryce and his former fiancée last year and was shocked to learn of their split.

When asked her opinion on this year's contestants, KC spilled on what happened and why she's doubtful of Bryce's motives.
"I'm not sure if everyone is there for the right reasons, I've got to be honest with you," KC tells Love In Reality.
"Michael and I actually went to Bryce and his fiancée's home for a dinner. "
"Bryce had interviewed Michael… So we went to their house, and I honestly thought 'This is it, he's going to marry her', they were just a normal, nice couple that had been together for a long time."

Not long after their dinner, Michael informed KC that Bryce had split with fiancée, Lana.
"I was very shocked they broke up, obviously I don't know them that well, but at that time they seemed like a solid couple. I swear it was weeks later Michael said 'Bryce is going on MAFS.'
"I said Bryce who? I was so confused," the reality star adds.

KC also claims the 2021 groom had appeared very interested in their experience with the reality show, however thought nothing of it at the time.
"There was a lot of talk of it [the show]," she explains.
"He was very friendly to us so I'm not sitting here saying he's a bad guy, I'm just talking from experience. He was really talking about MAFS but I just thought it was because he'd interviewed all of us."
"I really liked my MAFS experience. Little did I know I was selling."
The MAFS star also spilled on ex Michael and the real reason she fell for the fellow groom post-show. Hear all the juicy details on our new podcast, here – and don't forget to subscribe!
