You can stream the first episode today.

So who's going to be watching it?  I've started, looks interesting so far.

Would love others thoughts.

Yes - I watched the preview of Ep 1 this morning.
It will be interesting this season - total train wreck stuff of course.

Straight off the bat they have 1 from WA and one from QLD( who has a farm) - who the hell partnered them up???? Did they learn nothing from Christie and Mark from last season???

Shame - they seemed a better match than the 20 -somethings who were the other couple in the episode.

I suspect the miner lady had said she was prepared to move? Because he has said he definitely wouldn't. Surely they wouldn't match them if that wasn't the case.

The other couple, wow! I predict they have no chance. She seemed so immature. I was shocked when the experts were saying how mature beyond her years she is. And she's obviously got some competition with Emma lol

I haven't started watching yet (will wait till it's on free to air) but I know there are 8 couples? At the end of last season they were talking 50 individuals involved? I guess that's been scraped :unsure:

Watching the preview episode right now.

One couple seem very sweet, the other couple seem very "young"

I won't be watching any more.
I think with this 10 couples (or is it 20?) thing they have totally given up the pretence of trying to actually match people for compatibility. Now it's all just for drama.
Even last episode there were people in it who hadn't even signed up or been interviewed by the 'experts'.
I never minded the original premise, but this is just a farce.

Do they all live together for part of it, or am I confused with something else ?

That feels like a recipe for drama and/or disaster.

They seem to have changed it this year to all couples living together faster the honey moon. I get there's ten couples but come on send them back home.

I'll be watching but I liked season one best where the couples were sent home and went back to work and their normal lives.

I'm with callmeferal - the original idea was to use psychologists and experts to try and pick couples who would be a great match.  I quite liked the first season because of this, it felt a little authentic.  I feel like it's gone a bit the way of other sensational reality shows now - don't think I'll watch this time.

What do we think of the first two couples, I think with Cheryl and what's his name there will be fireworks but not in a good way.

Does anyone know what Jonathan actually does? I got so sick of hearing entrepreneur.

I thought the ex girlfriend was the most attractive of the lot.

Talk about a setup.   Lol reality my butt.

I liked both couples, but I think Cheryl has tickets on herself and won't be able to get past the "I'm perfect so you have to do what I want you to".  The miners are gorgeous!  I REALLY hope they can work out the living arrangements as I think they can make a real go of it

yeah, I was worried for him that she wouldn't like him or be attracted to him but she was and they were so cute and into each other.

Warm fuzzies!!

Apparently the Emma girl isn't an ex girlfriend, Jonathan said on a radio show this morning that she is his ex girlfriends twin sister and he is close with the parents so they got invited and the crazy girl decided to go along.

Agree. She thinks she's so funny though lol

I thought the other couple were a good match, I wonder what it was she wasn't drawn to because she seemed to decide immediately.
