Lizzie Sobinoff may look very different now to her first stint as a TV bride last year, but she’s adamant that who she is inside hasn’t changed.

“It’s still very much me. I know people are going to say, ‘Well, you look completely different to how we saw you last year, [but] don’t always focus on the outer shell,” she tells WHO of her 10kg weight loss. “This has always been me. We grow, as people. I don’t glorify weight and being like, ‘’I’m better now.’”


As one of 2019’s most controversial brides, Lizzie was cheated out of her shot at a happy ending thanks to her ‘husband’ Sam Ball, who cruelly criticised her weight at their wedding and had an affair with another bride in the early days of the experiment.

Since then, Lizzie has been focusing on herself and her health, occasionally following the 5:2 diet and aiming to work out a few times a week as it’s “good for stress”.

But the outspoken 28-year-old insists she’s no damsel in distress and is simply hoping that this time on MAFS, her relationship will go the distance.


Now, let’s hear from her husband. 

“Brunette, tanned, beautiful eyes, beautiful lips and medium height.That’s the description former AFL player Sebastian Guilhaus gave the experts for his ideal woman.

Lucky for Lizzie, she matches that description to a tee. But after eight years as a single man, her new husband may find it takes time to get used to married life.

“My first long-term relationship – beautiful girl – it was just mistiming. It became so toxic because we drew it out,” Seb, 30, tells WHO. “After that I didn’t really date, I just withdrew.”

The natural sportsman has spent a significant portion of his time focusing on his health, becoming a personal trainer and adopting a “healthy body, healthy mind” motto.

“The [bulk] of my happiness comes from health and fitness,” says Seb, who trains between one and three times a day, and consumes about “a million calories”.

The MAFS latecomer is also eyeing a career change, and is currently studying creative arts to become a drama and PE teacher. Engagement with people, entertaining, making people smile and making jokes – that’s me,” he says.
