Married At First Sight runs Covid-19 NEWS BULLETINS during the premiere episode and viewers find it bizarre: ‘It’s not a spoiler alert, we all lived it!’


Married At First Sight’s highly anticipated ninth season premiered on Monday night.

And during a segment where hunky hospitality entrepreneur Brent Vitiello was introduced to viewers, footage of Channel Nine’s Covid-19 news bulletins was aired.

While it was a move by producers to signify the devastating impact the pandemic has had on the 33-year-old’s event business in Dubai, viewers found it rather bizarre.

The beginning of the segment saw Brent describing his high-flying life abroad.

‘Running events in Dubai was a whole different life. It was mayhem in parts but it was also a lifestyle that you didn’t think was possible,’ he said in a piece to camera.

‘And it escalated into a full blown agency. Photography, videography, advertising marketing for major hotels…. and then this pandemic hit.’

Industry downfall:'The hospitality industry completely shut down. I lost up to six figures and then lost my businesses. And then I had to come home,' Brent said in a piece to camera

The camera then showed Channel Nine’s Covid-19 news bulletins with newsreaders Georgie Gardner and Peter Overton, where they revealed startling statistics.

After capturing hospital workers in hazmat suits and the exteriors of quarantine hotels, Brent went on to reveal the financial devastation the pandemic caused him.

‘The hospitality industry completely shut down. I lost up to six figures and then lost my businesses. And then I had to come home,’ he said.

Brent described having his work taken away as like losing a ‘chunk’ of himself and said it was a ‘hard transition’ returning to Sydney where he ‘felt like a stranger’.
