Married At First Sight Season 4 – Getting to Know the Singles

Production company Kinetic Content and FYI have given us a fresh start in season 4 of “Married at First Sight. With the new location of Miami, a  diverse group of singles and the addition of two new experts, Pastor Calvin Roberson and communications expert Dr. Rachel DeAlto along with sociologist Dr. Pepper Schwarz, there is renewed excitement. Loyal viewers have hope that this edgy social experiment can have the happy ending they saw with Jason & Cortney and Doug & Jamie on season 1.

Tom is a 28-year-old interior designer living in Miami, FL. He attended college in Texas and then moved to Hawaii. After doing a bit of traveling, he settled down into an RV he remodeled himself from a luxury tour bus. That’s what I call tiny house living!

He is the youngest of four children, with parents who divorced when he was young. But that hasn’t changed his outlook on marriage.

Tom is looking for someone who is humorous, dedicated and sincere. Although these core values are important, he also wants someone he can learn from and grow with. After trying the more traditional ways of finding love, he has decided to put fate in the hands of the experts.

Because of past experience, high on Sonia’s priority list is to find a man who is committed to family. Great communication and the ability to make her laugh are also important.
