Season nine of Married At First Sight Australia kicked off on 21 February 2022 with some of Australia’s most adventurous singles as its line of the cast. A self-proclaimed saucy, silly, and spontaneous Al Perkins, who we are going to talk about in the rest of this writing was among them.
As Al Perkins placed the search for a life partner in the hands of relationship experts John Aiken and Mel Schilling, and clinical sexologist Alessandra Rampolla, he got paired with Samantha Moitzi. And the rest, you shall explore in this ‘Al Perkins Bio’.
MAFS Australia: Are Al Perkins And Samantha Moitzi Still Together?
Al chose to remain single even though he did not have trouble getting female attention before he came on MAFS. Why? He said he just had no interest until recently to be in a committed relationship.
Despite secretly being scared of rejection, and worried about what could happen when he turns around and sees his bride for the first time at the altar, Al decided to go all-in for this life experience.
Now, things did not get off to a great start for Al Perkins as his new wife Samantha called him emotionally immature for having recited Eminem lyrics in his wedding vows. She also refused to kiss him as they posed for wedding pictures.
It was not yet made public if they decided to stick together or not. However, it certainly did not look good as neither of them follow each other on social media. And they DO follow some of their fellow MAFS co-stars.
Also, hinting things did not turn out how she expected, Al’s TV bride took on her Instagram @samanthamoitzi in February 2022 to write, “They say this experiment isn’t easy, and they’re not wrong #MAFS.”
But then, the way we saw them on TV things did not seem all bad. “I think it’s a match made in heaven for sure, I’m happy, she’s happy… I don’t know if she’s happy but I assume she is”, smitten Al had told on his wedding day. Until honeymoon, Samantha also thought Al to be super fun and very beautiful to look at.
They may have survived the experiment as a couple, judging from this one time they were spotted enjoying a romantic beach date towards the end of filming last year.
Al Perkins Parents
Al Perkins acquired Malaysian-Australian roots from his biracial parents.
The mother is Malaysian and though Al’s celebrity doppelganger Craig Wing could pass for his father, they are not related.
Before MAFS happened, Al, which is a shortened form of Alan, was also living at his parents’ house. This is one reason he decided to look for a bride, who would keep him grounded, in a reality show. Never having had a serious girlfriend or relationship, he had realized it was about time he grew up and stood on his own feet.
His mum supports his decision to get married — not surprisingly, as she still does his cooking, cleaning, and washing.
Al Perkins Sisters
Al is said to be comfortable around women, coming from a family of five sisters.
His sister Nina turned 27 lately on 1 February 2022.
