One week prior to the premiere, Lifetime will air a Season 11 Matchmaking Special on Wednesday, July 8 at 8PM ET/PT, featuring Married at First Sight experts Dr. Pepper Schwartz, Dr. Viviana Coles and Pastor Calvin Roberson selecting cast members from the show's filming location, New Orleans, LA.

And at 9PM ET/PT on July 8, Kevin Frazier will host a Kickoff Special in which he'll sit down with a group of panelists and entertainment reporters to discuss the Married at First Sight franchise and interview fan-favorite couples, beginning the countdown to Season 11.

The five brides who will be starring on Season 11 of Married at First Sight are Amelia, a 27-year-old medical resident from Richmond, VA; Amani, a 29-year-old non-profit worker who was raised in Chicago, IL; Olivia, a 30-year-old nurse from Bossier City, LA; Christina, a 30-year-old flight attendant from Houma, LA; and Karen, a 30-year-old consultant from New Orleans, LA.

The five grooms to be featured on the new edition are Bennett, a 28-year-old artistic director from Montvale, NJ; Woody, a 30-year-old teacher and coach from New Orleans; Brett, a 35-year-old with a career in information technology from Gretna, LA; Henry, a 35-year-old clinical recruiter from Arabi, LA; and Miles, a 26-year-old who works with youth from Spartanburg, SC.

The pairs of strangers to be married are Amelia and Bennett, Amani and Woody, Olivia and Brett, Christina and Henry, and Karen and Miles.

The show's tenth season, which aired earlier this year, was the first Married at First Sight season ever to feature five couples instead of just three or four.

All 17 episodes of Married at First Sight's eleventh edition will be two-hours long.

Each season, the strangers are matched based on their compatibility, goals, hobbies, religion, views of marriage, and more.

After meeting for the first time at their wedding ceremony, each Season 11 couple will then have the next eight weeks of their new married lives documented -- beginning with their wedding ceremony, reception and honeymoon, and continuing with the joys and struggles of daily life as they move in together and adjust to their new life as a married couple.

Below are Lifetime-supplied descriptions of each Married at First Sight eleventh-season couple.


Amelia and Bennett

Bennett, 28, grew up in Montvale, NJ and is the artistic director of a theatre company. Bennett has sought a life partner for years but has been through a string of bad relationships but is deeply encouraged by Married At First Sight's history of success with past couples.

Amelia, 27, was raised in Richmond, VA. With a doctor for a mother, Amelia always thought she would follow in her footsteps and is currently completing her medical residency.

Amelia subscribes to the idea that "you can fall in love with anyone-ish," and much like her grandparent's arranged marriage, she really thinks it's possible to learn to love someone. She loves social experiments and Married At First Sight is the perfect one for her.

Olivia and Brett

Brett, 35, was born and raised in Gretna, LA. He recently became AWS Cloud Practitioner certified and excels in his career in IT.

Christina and Henry

Henry, 35, was born and raised in Arabi, LA.

The dating apps have been disappointing and his friends and colleagues have no one else to introduce him to.

Henry is interested in Married At First Sight because believes the experiment will be beneficial in many ways and is a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity that he’d be crazy to pass up.

Born in Houma, LA, Christina, 30, was raised by a single mother and never really knew her biological father.

The flight attendant recently got out of a five-year relationship and hasn't put much effort into dating or finding a partner.

She is eager for the Married At First Sight experiment because she knows the experts are willing to do the work for her so she can settle happily into a relationship with her perfect match.
