But there was one woman in particular who couldn't believe her eyes when she realised her ex-boyfriend Jack, a personal trainer from the Gold Coast, was one of the grooms saying "I do" to a complete stranger in Sydney.
Making the whole thing even more shocking for Brisbane-based Courtney, is the fact that Jack allegedly told her he was “moving overseas” for work, and he only broke things off with her weeks before filming started.
"Breaks up with me right after I met his family and he told me he loves me. Tells me it's for [a] 'work opportunity in America' only to find out he's on MAFS in Sydney,” Courtney wrote on The Wash's Instagram pictures of Jack marrying bride, Tori Adams.

In a second comment, Courtney added: “When someone tells you they love you, introduces you to their family, lies to you saying they are going America 'for a work opportunity' only to find out they broke your heart to be on MAFS. The world we live in disgusts me.”
Speaking with the publication, she revealed things were serious between the pair, saying, "I even started selling my furniture when we were together as we spoke about moving in together. This is definitely the worst thing a man has ever done to me. I'd been driving myself crazy for a month wondering why everything was so shady [when he ended it]."
'The entire nation is cringing for you mate'
MAFS fans were left in shock last night after Jack introduced himself as a combination of Christian Grey and Tarzan.
While his new bride, Tori, shared that she thought the pair were 'absolutely on the same page' as the camera zoomed in on them kissing in a Vanuatu pool.
However, it seems Jack had a different opinion telling the producers he couldn't see any sparks flying between them.
Fans took to Instagram to slam the groom, with one person writing: "Men who call themselves an alpha are peak embarrassing , like the entire nation is cringing for you mate".
