Married At First Sight

Brand deals, radio gigs, club appearances and job losses: What is the MAFS season 9 cast up to now?

They're certainly cashing in!

By Alana Mazzoni
It feels like it was just yesterday that we watched our favourite (and not so favourite) Married At First Sight season nine stars go head-to-head at the reunion dinner party.
And while the finale episodes may have aired just six weeks ago, the cast of one of the most controversial MAFS seasons to date have kept very busy since returning to their new-normal.
Some contestants are reaping the benefits of their newfound fame with club appearances, brand deals and contracts with Australia's top talent managers.
Meanwhile, others are struggling to find steady work and have spent the past couple of months reinventing themselves.
Keep scrolling to see what season nine's biggest names are up to now.

Ella Ding

Since emerging as a fan favourite from season nine, Ella Ding has gone from strength to strength.
While she still technically lives in Melbourne, Ella has been spending most of her time in Sydney since the show finished airing.
The 28-year-old has formed a solid friendship group in Sydney with Brent Vitiello (who she's rumoured to be dating), best friend Domenic Calarco, Jack Millar, Al Perkins and Selina Chhaur.
With more opportunities for her growing career, Ella - who boasts nearly 580,000 Instagram followers - revealed she is moving to Sydney "in the next few months."
"I said to myself, whatever comes from this experience, I'm going with it. Whether it's friends or love or opportunities – if love fails I'm going to put all that energy elsewhere," she told Pedestrian in April.

Domenica Calarco

It hasn't been long since leaving the show, but Domenica is already on the way to solidifying herself as one of the most profitable and successful season Nine MAFS stars.
In April, the makeup artist signed with top celebrity agent SF Management, who represents the likes of Karl Stefanovic and Phoebe Burgess.
"They think she is going to be a huge star, bigger than Martha Kalifatidis and Abbie Chatfield," an insider told Daily Mail Australia.
"She's been chatting to radio executives in hopes of talking them into giving her a job."
Domenica attended several shows at Afterpay Australia Fashion Week alongside Ella - securing her title as Australia's latest big influencer.
The 29-year-old revealed during a TikTok that she also has her sights set on starting her own makeup line.

"I can't wait to do makeup tutorials. I cannot wait to engage with you I can't wait to see what you guys want to see on my Instagram," she said.
Domenica told Woman's Day in late March that her dream job would be "hosting my own radio show", adding that she'd also love to "work for a major beauty brand".
Domenica has already put her fame to good use by creating and selling merch emblazoned with her famous line: "My body, my choice, b--tch".
Twenty percent of all sale proceeds have gone to NSW and Queensland flood victims.

Brent Vitiello

Since the show, Brent has remained close to Domenica, Ella, Jack and Selina; though he gained a best mate for life in Al Perkins.
The pair have created a joint TikTok channel where they regularly keep fans updated with their hilarious antics.
In April, Brent and Al accompanied Ella to her hometown of Melbourne where they spent time with her mother Belinda.
Then in early May, Brella (as they're affectionally known now) went on a romantic couple's getaway to far north Queensland.

Ella revealed she and Brent shared a kiss while at their hotel, saying: "I just grabbed his face," with Brent adding: "It just happened."
The former co-stars said they got to have "really honest and open" conversations while away together.
Despite the obvious chemistry between Brent and Ella, they're yet to publicly confirm they're in a relationship.
Aside from his budding romance with Ella, Brent has kept busy with regular nightclub appearances and brand sponsorships.

Olivia Frazer

Season nine's resident villain has had a rough trot since MAFS wrapped up.
Olivia revealed in March that she'd lost her job "as a direct result of the show", but is now trying to get back into the work force.
"I think the backlash has died down, but having Instagram back I'm seeing [negative] comments and stuff... but I feel my skin is getting thicker. I've had a few job interviews, that haven't gone the best – but that's okay," she said in May.
"I'll work anywhere that will give me a job. Kmart, hit me up!"
"Every interview I've done has been fair, and I've had the interview based on my resume and merits, and I think I should have a job based on my skills and accomplishments."

Olivia said becoming a teacher is still her "ultimate goal", but that she doesn't "know how to go into a classroom right now."
"I'm definitely putting off my final placements for a while. I don't know if any schools would take me this year... I won't be putting myself out there to do that."
But the silver lining to Olivia's career woes and internet trolling has been her relationship with Jackson Lonie.
After the show wrapped, Jackson moved to the NSW Central Coast to move in with Olivia, and the pair are more in love than ever.
"Thank God for Jackson, as I would not have survived this without him, and my mum and brother. It's been hell," she said.

Tamara Djordjevic

Since being sensationally dumped by Brent in the final vows, Tamara has gone on to form her own post-MAFS friendship circle.
Tamara regularly hangs out with Olivia, Jackson, Samantha Moitzi, Kate Laidlaw, Jess Seracino and of course rumoured beau Mitch Eynaud.
However in April, Tamara cleared up speculation that she and Mitch are now dating, saying they're just "really good friends".
"And I wanna set the record straight by saying that we actually only became friends months after filming had aired," she said in an Instagram Q&A.
Tamara slammed Brent, claiming he hasn't stopped talking about her since the show finished in March.
"I understand that Brent has gone and spoken as much rubbish as he can about me," she said.

In early May, Tamara and her MAFS gang enjoyed a wild, boozy party to celebrate her 30th birthday.
In a video from the well-documented party, the former co-stars were seen getting rowdy on a party bus as they made their way out to a club.
"I hate Katy Perry's music!" Tamara screamed out while the pop singer's hit Teenage Dream blasted throughout the bus.
Meanwhile, Tamara's influencer career is slowly taking off.
The 30-year-old, who boasts 110,000 Instagram followers, attended Afterpay Australia Fashion Week, where she was seen rubbing shoulders with fellow reality stars.
