There’s a new dating rumour going around and it’s another reality TV crossover! Although this one we don’t actually hate as much as maybe we should…

Rumour has it that the girl next-door from this season of Married At First Sight, Connie Crayden, is currently dating former Bachelor Matt Agnew!

It’s like, it’s odd but we kinda love it? (If true that is)

While Connie’s journey on MAFS is yet to come to an official end after she chose to stay in the last commitment ceremony, it looks like she has well and truly moved on from her onscreen husband Jonethen.

According to OK! Magazine, the marine biology student and astrophysicist recently “hit it off” after meeting at a social event in Melbourne.


“Connie was chatting with Matt for ages,” claims a source. “They seemed to really hit it off. There was definitely some serious chemistry between them.”

While it’s just rumours for now, we certainly know that Dr Matt Agnew, a data scientist with a PhD from Swinburne University of Technology, would be Connie’s type!

During her application on MAFS she said that she wanted a man that’s not only good looking but has “intelligence” and is also a “little bit nerdy”.

Tick, tick and tick!

It's starting to get real now 😬 #MAFS

While Connie is still technically married to Jonethen in the MAFS experiment, Jon has said “leave” at the past three commitment ceremonies and so we don’t think that they will stay together for much longer.


This comes after Matt Agnew and his chosen girl from the Bachelor Chelsie McLeod broke up shortly after the season finished airing last year.
