Revealed: The most followed Married At First Sight star on Instagram – and it proves fans are STILL obsessed with season five
Married At First Sight’s Davina Rankin may have appeared on the dating show back in 2018, but she remains to this day one of the most unforgettable brides.
The 28-year-old, who regularly posts sweet photos of her baby girl, Mila Mae, on Instagram, is the most-followed MAFS star on the social media platform, with more than 345,000 followers.
Davina was partnered with ‘husband’ Ryan Gallagher on the fifth season of MAFS, which is widely considered the year when the social experiment took a darker turn.

Davina infamously cheated on Ryan but he was forced to stay in their ‘marriage’ for weeks after discovering her betrayal.
She tried to leave him for another groom, Dean Wells, but he eventually ran back to his assigned spouse, Tracey Jewel.
Martha Kalifatidis, who appeared on season six of the show in 2019, has also proved to be a popular bride with more than 333,000 followers on Instagram.
The 31-year-old brunette has become an influencer since leaving the experiment, and has landed many lucrative endorsements.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia recently, Martha said ‘never in her wildest dreams’ did she believe that creating sponsored posts at home would become her full-time job, and expressed her surprise at how financially viable it is.
‘It is surprising. I worked as a makeup artist for so long and I knew that big brands turn over so much, and the number one thing that they all invest in is marketing,’ she said.
Although Martha did not reveal the exact figure she charges for branded content, it’s estimated she makes anything up to $3,000 for a single sponsored selfie.

Some brands likely pay even more for multi-post deals, or to exclusively sign Martha up as the face of their campaigns across different platforms.
In third place is MAFS star Sarah Roza, who appeared on the fifth season of the show in 2018.
The 39-year-old, who recently underwent a drastic slim down, now has over 332,000 followers on Instagram.
