Just when we thought Married at First Sight couldn’t get anymore, well, Married at First Sight, this year’s couples have thrown us for an absolute spin.

    Couples we thought would make the distance is now starting to show some severe cracks (ahem, Booka Nile and Brett Helling) and others we thought wouldn’t last even a week are still together — we’re looking at you, Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson!

    But the question on everyone’s lips is: who will actually stay together?

    In order to find out for sure, POPSUGAR Australia consulted Psychic Medium Alla Kuzmis, a professional matchmaker and co-founder of My Forever, who utilises psychic readings to match clients with their ‘forever’ matches.

    She told us who she thinks will go the distance and which couples will end up in the dating pool.

    Alana and Jason

    “Alana is smart, easy-going and quite light,” Kuzmis said. “She knows what she wants, won’t be walked over and has a unique quality that enables her to get her needs met without being forceful.

    “Jason is a genuinely lovely and laid-back guy. He can be stubborn and likes things his own way. He will treat her well and as a couple, they are highly compatible. They’re low maintenance, avoid drama and invested in pleasing the other. High compatibility.”

    Alla’s score: 8/10

    Bryce and Melissa

    “Melissa is highly emotional and struggles with self-confidence,” she said. “Simply put, she’s a beautiful person who doesn’t feel good enough. It feels like she isn’t being her authentic self within this relationship as she’s worried he won’t accept her if she reveals her true self and as a result is trying to control who she is around him.

    “Bryce, on the other hand, isn’t emotional and is hard to get close to. Confidence oozes out of him and he has had no issues attracting women in the past. He will cope with her emotions and lack self-confidence in the short term but long term, there is no future.”

    Alla’s score: 5/10

    Beck and Jake

    “While Jake ‘knows’ he’s good looking, he is very insecure and vulnerable and will struggle to stand up for himself, especially against someone as strong-willed as Bec,” Kuzmis said.

    “She will overpower him in this dynamic. He’s yet to fully find himself and is not ready for marriage. Bec is very strong and needs someone who is stronger than she is and I do not believe Jake is that person. Not a good match.”

    Alla’s score: 1/10

    Patrick and Belinda

    “This couple is super cute. Patrick is going to want to be the ‘healer’ in this relationship. He will look up to her, he will love her and he will carry her in his arms,” she said.

    “Patrick has a deep yearning to please her and make her happy. If she’s happy to have a relationship with this dynamic, they have a strong chance of lasting.”

    Alla’s score: 7/10

    Booka and Brett

    “Booka is the leader in this relationship. Brett thinks the world of her and feels like he’s won the jackpot. He thinks she is absolutely beautiful and will bend for her and this relationship however he can lack patience and compassion for her feelings on occasion,” Kuzmis said.

    “Booka, on her part, appreciates the way he treats her and revels in his adoration although they will clash if he isn’t able to hold space for Booka’s needs. They have solid compatibility as long as both feel seen and heard within the relationship.”

    Alla’s score: 6/10

    Georgia and Liam

    “Georgia is very strong and within this relationship, she is the leader. She is assertive, knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to ask for it,” she said.

    “Liam will tend to follow her lead and adapt to her needs and wants rather than try to assert his own. For him, she is someone he can lean on and be with for the duration. I am unsure if he will be enough for her long-term and if she is looking for decisiveness, he isn’t her guy. If she is happy to lead and for him to follow, there is a chance it will work.”

    Alla’s score: 4/10

    Kerry and Johnny

    “Kerry is an intelligent woman. She is very grounded, is quite settled and established in life generally. She feels like she has everything except for her man. This could actually work because she’s emotionally intelligent and is able to communicate well with him,” she said.

    “I believe they’ll be great friends. In terms of passion and chemistry, I am unsure if they’ll have fireworks but if they’re happy to base the relationship on a foundation of friendship then there is a chance.”

    Alla’s score: 5/10

    I am incredibly excited to have the founders of My Forever Matchmaking on Chi Chat this week!

     

    Anna Grosman and Alla Kuzmis are the Directors and Co-Founders of Australia’s leading premium matchmaking agency, My Forever Matchmaking.

     

    A professional romantic and love intuitive, Anna has been successfully ‘matching’ friends since she was in high school and in 2020, decided to formalise her passion for forging romantic connections with co-founder, long-term friend and psychic, Alla Kuzmis, to launch ‘My Forever’ – a matchmaking agency focused on delivering a superior experience through stringent vetting processes in a safe and discrete environment.

     

    A long-term intimacy advocate, this is not Anna’s first foray into aiding and abetting intimate connections, having co-founded male escort agency Aphrodisiac in 2010 which she operated successfully for seven years before closing to pursue her passion for professional matchmaking.

     

    We are also fortunate enough to have former male escort, code name ‘Benedict’, in studio to share his experience and perspective on being a male escort.

     

    In addition, Alla is going to do a brief ‘love reading’ for me on air where I will hopefully glean the name of my future husband so as to start ordering my wedding invitations post haste!

     

    We will also discuss the unusual love formula Anna and Alla are using to pair singles in forever matches, why they advocate for blind dates for their clients and how they navigated launching a matchmaking agency during COVID.

      Hands up if you’ve ever watched Married At First Sight and thought ‘Why the hell did the experts think these two would be a good match?’ Trust us, you’re not alone.

      Every year, you can guarantee a couple will leave the MAFS experiment after a week or two after their wedding after realising (or in most cases confirming) that they were never compatible.

      But what if the season eight MAFS brides and grooms had been paired with someone else?

      WHO chatted exclusively to psychic medium Alla Kuzmis  who along with Anna Grosman is the co-founder and co-director of My Forever Matchmaking about which couples she reckons would’ve been better together.

      Whilst she reckons the experts got it right with Booka and Brett (despite current difficulties), Alana and Jason, Belinda and Patrick and even departed couple Jo and James, these others may surprise you.

      Disclaimer: These are the couples that Alla believes were the most well matched within the experiment. This is not to say they are well matched overall, but the best matches of the singles who participated in the experiment this year.

      Bryce and Jaimie

      Bryce may be currently married to Melissa but Alla reckons his bride should’ve been the equally strong-willed Jaimie.

      “Bryce is self confident, stubborn, selfish and thinks highly of himself. He’s never had any issues attracting women and is quite cocky as a result. Love doesn’t mean as much to him as it does to most women. He places a higher value on really great sex within a relationship over and above love. Jaimie can be stubborn, focused, strong and she needs mental stimulation.”

      “Her delivery can be a little direct at times but nothing that Bryce wouldn’t be able to handle. Equally confident and self-assured, these two would enjoy similar lifestyles and styles of communication within a relationship.”

      Coco and Cameron

      Their connection was there and they even shared a smooch before exiting the experiment so Alla says that Cameron and Coco would be a great fit for each other.

      “Cameron is selfish, cares a lot about his own needs and is strong minded. He has a tendency to go after what he wants rather than what he actually needs. Coco is insecure, is a little unclear about what she wants in a partner and as a result, thinks the grass is always greener on the other side.”

      “Due to her insecurities, she needs a strong, confident man who will always uplift her. If he is invested in the relationship, Cameron can be attentive and would provide the reassurance and decisiveness Coco needs.”

      Beth and Johnny

      Beth was done dirty by the experts when she was matched with Russell but could intruder Johnny have been her Prince Charming?

      “Beth has strong views and as a result needs a man who will listen to her and value her opinion. She enjoys a nice lifestyle and therefore needs a very high class, educated and cultured partner,” Alla says.

      “Johnny is cultured, open and a good listener. He is also confident and lifestyle oriented. Their similar interests and love of finer things in life will be a consistent source of joy for both.”

      Kerry and Russell

      Couple swap! Alla adds that Beth and Johnny’s respective partners should have been together from day dot.

      “Kerry is soft, easy going and has a deep yearning to have a family. Russell is simple and can be stubborn and needs a simple woman who is low maintenance as he’s not willing to bend or change himself even for a relationship. Kerry’s laid back nature and her high levels of emotional intelligence will assist her in being able to navigate Russell’s structured approach to life.”

      Chris and Melissa

      Now this is the stuff fairytales are made of.

      “Chris is sweet, relatively insecure and as a result, has a deep desire to be accepted and loved. Melissa is deeply insecure and needs regular reassurance of her safety within a relationship,” Alla says.

      “Due to her lack of confidence she isn’t living her authentic self and needs a strong compassionate man as her life partner. Chris’ sweet and compassionate nature would be a good balance for the reassurance she will need.”

      Georgia and Jake

      Things may be going well for Georgia and Liam (at least for now) but Alla says she would be a better fit for Rebecca’s husband, Jake.

      “Jake is quite insecure and as a result, has some self worth issues. He is not strong as a man and so needs a strong woman to reassure and uplift him. Georgia is set in her ways, ambitious, very focused and has her eye firmly on the prize. She’s a confident and decisive leader and Jake would respond well to her warmth and her soft, yet firm strength.”

      Rebecca and Sam

      Well, it would certainly be an entertaining marriage to watch.

      Alla says both can be selfish and stubborn and that’s why “she needs an alpha male.”

      “While Sam is not an ‘alpha’ he is self-assured and will be able to stand up for himself within the relationship with Rebecca and she would respect that.”

      Samantha and Liam

      Mum-of-three Samantha has “unrealistic expectations” in terms of relationships, according to Alla.

      “She is looking for her fairytale ending and won’t rest until she has found her ‘Prince Charming’. She yearns for a warm, romantic man who truly ‘sees her’.

      “As Liam is a more gentle man, he would feel safe to her. He is a follower within a relationship and would let her lead. He is naturally indecisive and would appreciate her strength and action oriented nature.”
