A quick search of the Married at First Sight Australia Instagrams will show you that yes, most of the cast have quit their day jobs to become full time influencers. It is a rite of passage that no matter what reality TV show you go on, whether it’s Too Hot To Handle, Love Island or Love Is Blind, it is basically unheard of to go back to the 9-5 day job. Instead, there’s serious cash to be made via social media, and the Married at First Sight Australia Instagram earnings go shooting up thanks to sponsorship deals with fake tan and beauty brands, teeth whitening kits, PrettyLittleThing, and in Jessika’s case a sex toy company.
So, what are the Married at First Sight Australia Instagram earnings, and who is making the most bank?
Matthew – £365 / $658
Matt is making the least amount of money out of the Married at First Sight Australia Season 6 cast, which isn’t too surprising considering he and Lauren dipped out first in the competition. But still, 300 quid for an Instagram post isn’t too bad.
Lauren – £381 / $687
Lauren makes a little bit more than Matt on Instagram, at just under £400 per Insta post. Lauren does a bit of sponsored content, mainly for beauty and make up brands.
Sam – £414 / $746
Now I think Sam could’ve been making a lot more cash if he hadn’t shaved off his lovely hair and hadn’t left the experiment so early on when his, Lizzie’s and Ines’ love triangle fell apart. Sam’s Instagram is mainly just work out pics, suggesting he probably doesn’t get many spon-con requests.
Mike – £433 / $780
Mike makes around the £433 mark for Instagram posts, and he even asks people to DM him if you want to collab! From the amount of dog pics on his Instagram you would think Mike has a collab with a dog shelter or something.
Dino – £456 / $821
Dino makes more cash than Mike, despite leaving the competition much earlier in the experiment when him and Melissa called it quits. Dino still works in meditation and spirituality, and doesn’t do much spon-con.
Melissa – £478 / $860
Melissa’s Instagram is a total delight, so it’s no wonder she can make just under £500 for an Instagram post. Despite leaving the experiment early, Mel brings in a few advertisement deals with beauty and jewellery companies.
Bronson – £533 / $960
Ngl I’m kinda amazed Bronson is this high up in the list after everything that happened on the show. Sure he was totally mugged off by Ines but like…£533 for a post feels a bit steep?? Bronson is still heading up his party boat business and has done a smidge of spon-con with Hello Fresh.
Nic – £537 /$966
Here we go – Nic has fully embraced the semi-influencer lifestyle by promoting things like spinach, protein powder and crisps. Go on Nic, you live your influencer fantasy! Despite getting some big brands, Nic is mid-range in the Married at First Sight Australia Instagram earnings, at £537 a post.
Mick – £596 / $1,073
Look I love Mick so I’m pretty happy but also amazed he is able to make just under £600 per post. But I know why – it’s cos he’s fit! There! I said it! Even holding this rattlesnake skin I’m sexually attracted to him. Take my £600 Mick take it!
Ning – £629 / $1,132
Ning’s got just under 200k Instagram followers so is in the top 10 MAFS cast members raking in the most cash via Instagram. Ning does hardly any spon-con posts, instead posting holiday snaps, pics of her kids and new boyfriend, and lots of food.
Ines – £661 / $1,188
No surprises here that Ines is making decent money off Instagram. If her and Sam had managed to couple up on the show, like if this was Love Island, then she probably would’ve been making even more dough. Ines promotes beauty and make up brands, underwear and work out gear.
Michael – £666 / $1,197
Hottie Michael is making around £666 per Instagram post, making him the second highest earning Insta poster out of the MAFS S6 cast. Michael posts a lot of pics of him and Martha, work out shots and some hot mirror selfies. He deserves every penny of that £666 cheque imo x
Heidi – £708 / $1,273
Heidi can make some decent cash off Instagram if she wants – but she barely posts! Unlike her cast-members, Heidi seems to have shied away from letting the public into her life on social media. There’s a few posts of her at work and out with friends, but no classic influencer spon-con.
Jessika – £786 / $1,414
Jessika has gone full-blown influencer on her Instagram, which should come as no surprise. She does all kinds of spon-con: beauty products, vibrators, workout gear and skincare brands.
Cyrell – £1,002 / $1,801
Now we’re into the top five highest Married at First Sight Australia Instagram earners. Cyrell comes in at number five, making over £1,000 for an Instagram post! Cyrell posts a lot of pics with her baby, who she had with Love Island Australia Season 1’s Eden Dally – wild, but cute!
Cameron – £1,020 / $1,834
Cameron is the highest earning male cast member on Instagram, making around £1,020 per Instagram post. His Insta is made up of wholesome pics of him and Jules with their baby. Cameron’s got some sweet spon-con deals, such as with Amazon, Soda Stream and Sacla the pesto people.
Elizabeth – £1,359 / $2,425
If you haven’t caught up with MAFS Lizzie’s transformation, this is what she looks like now. She’s had a full on transformation and is like 100 per cent pure influencer. But you know what, it’s paid off because she is one of the highest earning MAFS women, despite leaving the competition early on. For those who don’t know, Lizzie comes back in Married at First Sight Season 7, and she only just split up with her husband from that show, so she’s had two opportunities to boost her Insta followers. Lizzie’s feed is basically 80 per cent spon-con.
Martha – £1,567 / $2,818 (AUD)
In second place in the Married at First Sight Australia Instagram earnings league is Martha, who makes £1.5k per Insta post, and it’s no surprise from how vibes her Insta aesthetic is.
Jules – £1,749 / $3,122
In top spot is Jules! Jules and Cameron stole everyone’s hearts in Season 6, becoming the first couple to tell each other they love each other. They even got properly married after the show, and now have a family together. I’m not crying you are!!! Naturally Jules is prime fodder for brands to pounce on – baby brands, skincare, make up, the list goes on.

Instagram Is Rolling Out Reels Replies, And Will Be Testing A New Feature Which Informs …
Instagram has added a few more social features to the platform, with Reels Replies being rolled out. Along with the Replies, anew feature is being tested that shows when two users are active together in the same chat.
Reels has been performing much better than perhaps even Instagram ever anticipated. The TikTok-inspired new video format (which officially claims to have absolutely no relation to the former) had some trouble really finding its footing initially. However, Reels has grown massively and while it may not be a source of the most direct competition to TikTok, it is indeed a worthy alternative.
Reels has grown to the point that it has a massive creator program attached to it, and the video format has even been migrated to Facebook with the goal of generating further user interest there. Naturally, with such a successful virtual goldmine on its hands, Instagram has been hard at work developing new features and interface updates for Reels, integrating it more and more seamlessly into the rest of the social media platform. Features such as Reels Replies are a major part of such attempts at integration.
Reels Visual Replies are essentially just what they sound like: A Reel that is being used to reply to someone. It’s a feature that’s been seen frequently across TikTok as well. Reel Replies essentially take a user’s comments, and reply to them in video format. The comment will then show up within the Reel itself as a text-box, taking up some amount of space, and showing both the user who issued said comment along with the text. The text-box is apparently adjustable, with users having the ability to move it around and change its size depending on where it obstructs one’s Reel the least.
Overall, it’s a fun addition to the Reels format, even if the credit should be going to TikTok first. At any rate, it’s an example of Instagram really utilizing Reels’ social media capabilities, outside of just serving it up as a form of entertainment.
Speaking of social media capabilities, a new feature might help alleviate one of the most common frustrations encountered across all such platforms. Isn’t it annoying when you see that a friend’s online, but isn’t replying to your chat? Sure, they’ve probably just put their phone down to run a quick errand, but there’s no way for you to know, right? Well, there sort of is now! Instagram is beta testing a new feature via which if both users are active within a chat, the platform will display that accordingly. It’s a work-around, sure, and one that’s currently being tested for usefulness, but it’s still a very nice, and even fresh, addition to the social media game.
