So, I had a look at the new cast for MAFS 2020. They look just as bad as the last cast. I honestly don't think I can bear another season of social media wannabees but I'm wondering who does and who does not intend to watch again?

I’m watching at least the wedding episodes at minimum.

I’m a sucker for trashy TV.

I actually don't want to watch this year as I read the cast bio's and they all sound like trashbags who are on there to increase their social media followers... but my kids are SO excited, they've been counting down the days lol. So looks like I'll be watching again!

Went to the gym, now I’m sitting down to eat and watch MAFS.

I know it’s trashy and most will be trashy but I love it

Josh and Cathy...FTW!!

Poppy and Luke? Time will tell. I can understand that she misses her boys but she also needs to keep telling herself that she has left them with someone that she trusts immensely and that they will be fine. She's their mum but she's not dead. Time for something for her.

Agreed. If you leave it till your kids are grown up like mine,  they'd sell you off for a can of beer.

Well maybe that's just my kids 😀

The producers are picking up on any little doubts and fuelling them, egging on her neurosis, for television. Poppy's Achilles heel is her kids....

Couldn’t vote - I only watch the weddings to see what crappy matches the so-called “experts” and producers match and then look on social media every now and then.

I actually feel for Poppy, I think the last two years she has been super focused on her boys. I don’t really think however, that she is ready for this - again producers will play on it. I think Luke is a great guy, but said No straight away, it seems like they have picked them as they have kids in common and that’s about it. - Won’t last

Josh and Cathy - At first I was a firm No again, as I thought he was matched the the blonde (grey looking) lady with two kids, but when I realised it was Cathy, well I actually think they might go ok. Though, I think she led the Hen’s night and might very well add fuel to any fire that happens at the dinner table. Josh is also very good looking, I think that will play with her insecurities.

Two things though - were both the ladies getting married to each other at the hens? I was kind of waiting for one of them to turn up at the batchie party?

Why didn’t they have Lizzie go to the Hens? I didn’t see her there at all?

I actually can’t wait for the rest of the weddings!

I think Poppy isn't ready either, she has a lot to work through, she's still young, the boys are still young, it can take a lot of time to be ready for another person,  from personal experience. .

I hope Josh and Cathy work. He seems good for her,  too young for me and not my type but it's not about me!

Why do they match people living in different states?  It makes everything much more complicated, especially those with kids, it's really not fair.

Tash's bridesmaids are trouble making b**ches,

I wonder if Mikey is part of the Moran (aged care facilities) family.

Jeez Mikey is young enough to be my child! I want to do his washing and cook him dinner!

I think they should've matched Poppy with Chris, seeing him talking just now about missing his boys when they are with their mum was so sad. I think they would've both understood each other better.
