How did the Married at First Sight stars first meet?

Bennett Kirschner opens up exclusively to Screen Rant to share what he feels when he spots his new bride. According to Bennett, a mutual friend had introduced them and he had felt an instant attraction at the time.

Bennett believes he is about to wed a perfect stranger and spoke about the moments after spotting Amelia. He says he isn’t going to lie, but when he realizes he already knows her, the bottom fell out of his stomach. Bennett says, until that moment, he was gearing up to marry a stranger. However, literally “in the blink of an eye,” the singer’s expectations are “shattered into a million pieces.”


From that moment, everything comes flooding back to him. He remembers their first meeting and that he was “completely charmed by her.” From then on, it was reassuring to him. According to Bennett, having been attracted to her when they “met outside of this bizarre context” gives him confidence. He went on to exclaim that the experts were “really onto something” when pairing him with Amelia.

According to experts and fans, this means the fan-favorite couple might have an excellent chance at a lasting marriage.

Bennett and Amelia had been silly and blissful the night before while revealing sleepwear consisting of a dress-length shirt. In the morning, the newlyweds chat and enjoy their room service breakfast. Besides their attraction to each other, it turns out Bennett and Amelia have an almost identical vision as they trade their glasses with each other. When asked about his sleepwear, the new husband says it is all about comfort.

A meeting between Bennett and Amelia’s mother and brother goes well. They tell the pair they think the match is like two puzzle pieces fitting together.
