    EXCLUSIVE: Former MAFS star Martha calls this year's cast "FAKE"

    EXCLUSIVE: Former MAFS star Martha calls this year's cast "FAKE"

    This week we are joined by none other than former Married At First Sight star Martha Kalifatidis! The beauty guru and influencer dishes on everything from how she thinks this years’ MAFS cast aren’t being completely genuine to her real life wedding plans with MAFS husband Michael Brunelli to her struggles with anxiety and trolling during last year’s show. She also discusses her self-described “unhealthy” relationship with food, spending a year in a wheelchair as a teenager and her plans to launch her own skincare line. 
    To go in the running for the competition Martha is offering her followers, tell ShopBack in a 30-60 second Instagram video shared with their followers, what extremes they go to to save money & what their favourite brands are on ShopBack.
