Oh great google is bringing in 20,000 employees ( forgot how many construction workers) and we have no housing. Rent is expected to jump $800 a month, my new landlord tried to raise mine $305.  The average cost of a house here is a million two.  If he thinks she’s materialistic before wait till she has to settle for some hovel or maybe they can afford to buy now.  

Rant over. 

The ripple effect is worse IMO. They throw a handful like 20 jobs to smaller Utah cities, and now CA residents are pouring in. Houses in my Utah city went from 200k to over 400k over night and rents for a 1 bedroom from $400 to $1500. The issue is outside of a handful like 20 here and there computer related jobs or being a doctor, the average wages are some of the lowest in the US (second lowest as of last survey). Our city was full of retired people so low wage healthcare workers like CNA, hospice workers, MA, nursing homes workers are needed but can't afford to live. There was minimal to no homelessness and now it is everywhere, 1 in 15 kids are homeless at school. 

I do think this move will be good for Jamie and Beth. I think the Bay area will have things she will like to do and I bet she finds a job that she really likes. I don;t think Jamie was all about her making money but having direction and a job she loved (and structure of going to work regularly). Without kids I;m sure they will be fine in SF even with high rents. I have read that Jamie had a good job in NC but you can probably only go so high in NC in techs jobs before you top off. It would be ideal good tech job in NC if you dream is like Greg, suburb house and kids but if it is not then I say try out a dream job and life in SF.

If anyone is interested, Kate (from Kate and Luke) just did a podcast interview with Olivia Caridi (Mouthing Off with Olivia Caridi) and she talks about how things were worse than what was shown on tv.

Candid and interesting interview. 

But this is further evidence that the producers of this show deliberately match people against their type or preferences in hopes of generating maximum drama. The only thing they don't do is go against people's racial preferences--that might create too much drama.

I still don't know why anyone would agree to be on this show. 

And men, will you please stop expecting to get matched with an Instagram model or a Beyonce look alike? If you could pull that kind of woman, you wouldn't need a matchmaker, right? With the exception of Iris and Keith, how often do people with model-like good looks apply (or get recruited) for Married At First Sight?*

*And Iris had serious issues which almost negated her beauty.

looks like AJ and Steph are still together!

They are definitely together- I follow them on instagram and they post constantly from all corners of the globe. I think it’s funny that article says they are taking a long break from work because from their IG posts it looks like they never work and all they do is travel!

In other not shocking news, MAFS fan is also posting that Jamie and Beth have split. She is back in North Carolina apparently. I would put a link, but I have never figured out how to do it.....

All I can say is, I’m surprised it took this long.....

Beth is no prize and Jaime never seemed to respect her beyond a roll in the sack. There is no way they were going to survive the stress of a move to a much more expensive area.

I actually wondered if Beth would be able to find employment there without daddy’s help? Jaime is also a bit of a jerk so that probably did not help.

Wait! Is it Dr. Jessica?!?

Fake, irresponsible teevee personality?  Nope. She & her previous client Jon are probably already married, but I don't know for sure because I don't care enough to check.

This mental health professional participant better hope she gets a good edit.😏

A little late, but I just heard the Kate podcast and she sure doesn't come off as being too bright, does she? She kept saying how confused she was, but she seemed to have been the only one who couldn't read the situation. I am not sure if I have another season left in me, but we'll see. . .

Taylor/Brandon are a good-looking couple, they remind me of Iris/Keith.  Just please please don't have Taylor turn out to be a virgin.  😱

They are. I think they're the best-looking pair. I'm not sure we need 5 couples though.

Here's People's take (which is why I popped in here in the first place).

The Lifetime website has seasons 1 through 8 available to watch for free.

Five couples feels like too much. I liked having four, but I think five will be confusing, and we'll see even less of their interactions. I wonder if they're all going to live in the same building like last season.

Also, judging by the body language in some of the photos, some of these couples look not super thrilled.

I agree, but didn't I hear that each episode is going to be 2 hours now on top of this?  I don't know why shows these days seem to want to constantly change things around.  More is not necessarily better.  I'm at my limit for time and emotional investment in this show already and now they're going to ask for even MORE?  I'm semi-retired and yet I don't know if I have the time for this.  Plus it seems like a lot of my shows start in January so my time is already going to be more occupied.

I wonder if this means that one couple dropped out fairly early? I thought that Kate and that guy married to Mia should have dropped out in their seasons. They probably take a huge financial penalty in their contracts but staying with a self obsessed weirdo or a criminal just makes you look bad.

It feels like some of these grooms might have been "recruited". We know from past experience that most of the recruited grooms do no work out since they are only doing it for the paycheck and whatever exposure being on a Z-list reality show gives them.

Even if one couple drops out early we're still left with 2 hour episodes and other rehash episodes galore.  It's overkill already.  Too much of an already almost barely tolerable thing leaves one wanting LESS.

True that.

It makes me wonder if one couple drops out at the alter?  I remember Sam and Neil in Atlanta were a last minute couple because the original couple said no when they saw each other at the wedding. I have always had funny visions of two people simultaneously making a run for it immediately upon seeing each other at the alter. 

But yes, this barely kept my interest in the original format.

Exactly. This show is so gross, and for all their talk about being proponents of marriage, they are really all about drama rather than making good matches. This really means they don't care about marriage at all and are totally cool with the amount of divorces that occur each season. What is more baffling is why I would expect more from a low rent basic cable tv show. That being said........

They are just doubling down now. Shame on them. They couldn't even come up with THREE decent grooms each season and now there are FIVE???? If at least 3 of these grooms signed up voluntarily I'll eat my shirt. There is no way at least two or three of them were not recruited.......

I didn't watch the Atlanta season. Did we meet the original couple? Did we see them leave each other at the altar? Was it a mutual decision?

We never meet them but some astute posters were able to figure out who they are from re watching the match maker episodes. Much was said about the guy's amazing pornstache.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if most of the grooms were recruited. I've said that I bet the pools for this are like 90% women. (The reverse of Ashley Madison, if that's still around - that was like 95% men, 4% bots pretending to be women, and 1% women.) I would guess that in a place like DC, where people are likely more career-oriented, that you wouldn't have as many men in their 20s and 30s who are actively looking to settle down anyway.

 The Atlanta season was the first season I watched and I had no idea about this! I wish it had played out on screen. Charlotte Matt said he knew in "15 minutes" that Amber wasn't it, so I wonder if there had been a track record of leaving at the altar, would he have gone through with it?

I think his name was Christian. And I wonder if there was a loophole to take advantage of because of Mia's criminal issues. (Even if there weren't, he totally should have left her. That was a fucking disaster.)

Two hours? Even with five couples, this show is so boring as it is, how are they going to fill two hours? 

And I agree with you all, it's just going to end up with more divorced couples. Their track record of matching people is terrible, and they keep choosing people who shouldn't even be on the show to begin with. I'd rather watch two decently-matched couples than 5 trainwrecks.

Mia's husband was Tristan.
