It’s been two years since Married At First Sight Australia’s Martha Kalifatidis starred on the hit reality show, but in that time she’s undergone quite the transformation.
Many commented on her ‘Kim Kardashian-like’ appearance during her time on the programme, and the 32-year-old has shown off her new looks by stepping out for an event.
Martha showcased her new look during the Celeste Barber x MCoBeauty launch in Sydney last week.
The reality star was open about her procedures during her stint on Married at First Sight, saying in the first episode back in 2019: ‘Not gonna lie, I’ve had my boobs done, I’ve had a nose job, I’ve had Botox, I’ve had a bit of filler, I’ve got fake nails, I’ve got my hair chemically straightened. It matters to me. If I look good, I feel good.’
However, the star recently spoke about her life after leaving the reality show, saying that it ‘crushed her self-esteem’ and she ‘hasn’t had surgery since the show aired’.
Speaking to Closer, she said: ‘The show – and the fame and trolls that came with it – crushed any sort of self-esteem I had. You’re criticised, you’re analysed at every angle, you’re expected to look perfect.’
‘People think that I think I’m this model, but I don’t. I’m a normal girl – I get fat, I get pimples, I sometimes have a double chin – and trolls will tell me that.
She added: ‘But despite all that, I haven’t had surgery since the show aired – I have a great support system around me that has helped with that. So many people look similar these days – they no longer look like themselves, they look like everyone else on social media. There’s no individuality – and I’ve been really conscious to stay individual.’
Martha is still with Michael Brunelli who she got hitched to on the show back in 2019. The pair, who are both from Melbourne, are now living together in Bondi in Sydney.
Since appearing on the show together, Martha has become a full-time beauty influencer on Instagram and Michael has launched his own fitness business.
Married At First Sight Australia airs weekdays on E4 at 9pm.
