New MAFS intruder Kerry is set to make her mark on the show this week, but trying her hand at love on the reality TV experiment was something she almost didn't do – until her ex-husband talked her into it!
"I made sure fairly early in the process that I had his blessing but he told me to go for gold," Kerry, 30, tells Woman's Day.
"We're still on really good terms."
Applying for MAFS just a year after her divorce, the Sunshine Coast bride-to-be says it was the death of a best friend that made her "open her eyes."
"I lost one of my closest friends when I was a teen so I learned just how short life is," she says.
"The thought of getting up to heaven one day and looking back on my life and being disappointed in myself for settling for anything less than extraordinary was too much to bear."
