UK viewers are currently making their way through MAFS Australia after it aired Down Under earlier in the year. Naturally, they want to know who went the distance after the experiment, so we’ve done some digging on Samantha and Cameron.
Samantha Harvey and Cameron Dunne were the third couple to get hitched in season eight of MAFS Australia.
Samantha, 31, is a property developer from Canberra and Cameron, 32, a crane operator from Melbourne.
Entering the experiment, Samantha was a single mum looking for a father figure with a "country old-school mentality" for her two boys. Having dated superficial people in the past, she was looking for somebody honest and loyal and who liked more than just her looks.
The experts believed Cameron fitted the bill. Having spent the last few years dedicated to his career, he was ready for more of a work-life balance. He said he’s financially stable and would marry the right girl “tomorrow,” with hopes of also becoming a father someday.
Samantha revealed that her parents never liked her ex-husband (and partner of ten years), so much so that they never attended the wedding. She hoped they would attend this one, despite not knowing her hubby to be.
Despite the tough exterior, Cameron describes himself as a “teddy bear,” but Samatha struggled to find that side of him after he got caught up in a love triangle during the experiment with Coco.
As a result, the couple decided to leave the experiment after Cameron cheated on Samantha with Coco, who was married to Sam.
According to reports, Cameron was dating somebody else in March 2021, after leaving the experiment.
In April 2021, Samantha also went public with a new boyfriend. Daily Mail Australia said she’d been dating Jesse, a crane rigger, since January 2021.
Like MAFS UK, the weddings are not actually legalised. The couples are asked to make a lifelong commitment to each other and are thrown a wedding complete with the whole shebang, but on paper, they’re not married.
However in the US version of the show, the couples do get legally married, meaning they’d have to get a divorce or annulment if they decided to part ways after the experiment.
