Clara
is
ready
to
find
her
perfect
match.
The
27-year-old
flight
attendant
is
sick
of
being
hit
on
by
her
passengers
and
going
on
dates
with
men
who
don’t
take
her
seriously.
The
randy
contestant
bought
the
other
women
lingerie
to
wear
on
their
honeymoons.

Ryan’s
parents
have
been
married
for
over
30
years,
and
he
wants
a
love
just
like
theirs.
On
the
premiere
episode,
Ryan
spoke
about
being
one
of
the
only
black
students
in
his
class,
and
the
racist
comments
he’s
received
while
being
in
interracial
relationships
before.
He
works
as
a
project
manager
for
a
software
company.

Jacob
and
Haley

Lifetime

Jacob
and
Haley
have
a
10-year
age
gap
between
them,
but
the
experts
hope
that
won’t
be
an
issue.
Haley,
28,
works
as
an
account
executive.
She’s
been
a
bridesmaid
14
times,
and
now
her
friends
are
excited
to
support
her
on
her
big
day.
Haley
is
still
working
on
some
trust
issues
from
her
last
relationship
(he
got
another
women
pregnant
while
they
were
still
together)
and
wants
a
partner
who
will
always
support
her.

Jacob,
38,
is
a
senior
IT
analyst.
He
loves
the
fun
things
in
life,
especially
’80s
movies.
He’s
been
on
his
own
for
a
long
time
and
is
committed
to
finding
a
wife
and
starting
a
family
as
he
nears
40.

Chris
and
Paige

Paige and Chris from Season 12 of "Married At First Sight."

Lifetime

Well-dressed
Chris
made
a
bold
introduction
on
the
show.
The
27-year-old
ended
an
engagement
only
months
before
appearing
on
MAFS.
Chris
wants
seven
kids
and
a
“submissive”
wife
who
isn’t
into
him
for
his
money.
He
was
raised
by
pastors,
and
often
gets
the
counsel
of
his
own.

That
may
make
him
a
good
match
for
Paige,
who
specifically
asked
the
matchmaking
experts
for
a
“God-fearing”
husband.
The
25-year-old
hopes
to
have
one
of
the
first
successful
marriages
in
her
family.
Although
she’s
young,
she
already
owns
a
home
and
has
established
her
accounting
career.

Erik
and
Virginia

Virginia
loves
going
out
to
bars
and
concerts.
The
26-year-old
is
looking
for
someone
to
be
her
plus
one,
or
at
least
someone
who
won’t
stop
her
from
hitting
the
town.
Her
traditional
family
is
apprehensive
about
her
getting
married
this
way.

Erik
is
a
homebody,
and
the
experts
believe
they’ll
balance
each
other
out.
He
works
as
a
pilot,
which
has
complicated
many
of
his
past
relationships.
The
34-year-old
is
ready
to
find
his
flying
partner.

Vincent
and
Briana

Briana
is
a
28-year-old
engineer.
She
likes
structure
and
an
organized
household.
Although
it
takes
her
a
bit
to
open
up
to
people,
she’s
ready
to
find
her
life
partner.

Vincent,
also
28,
works
as
an
auto
broker.
His
last
relationship
ended
because
his
girlfriend
wasn’t
supportive
of
him
starting
his
own
business
and
disliked
that
he
didn’t
have
a
degree.
Now,
he’s
hoping
the
experts
have
found
him
a
woman
who
will
have
his
back
no
matter
what.
