Viewers Reckon One MAFS Contestant Is The Spitting Image Of Daniel Andrews
It's that time of year again when we gather around the silver screen with a family block of chockie and our Twitter fingers at the ready in order to marvel at the pure outrageousness that is Married At First Sight Australia.
Last night, we were introduced to this year's crop of wannabe influencers that were collectively whiter than your local Coles' Wonder Bread.
Viewers were once again reminded that the Twitter commentary on the trash fire of a TV series is undoubtedly the most entertaining part of MAFS.
The diversity in #MAFS this year is unreal, they have every shade of white#MarriedAtFirstSight

Loving the diversity so far... Gotta be at least 8 different types of white guy. #MAFSAU #MAFS

There are a lot of blonde, white women. Yay diversity #MAFS

Among the hilarious banter about the experts' terrible matchmaking abilities and generally cooked advice, one contestant captured the nation's attention for quite a different reason.
People reckon he looks just like Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews.

Russell Duance, a 37-year-old diesel mechanic from South Australia, had viewers in a frenzy over his bespectacled resemblance to Dan Andrews, with one Twitter posting: "Anyone else think Russel looks like Dan Andrews?"
Another added: "Did Dan Andrews just walk into the set of MAFS?!"
A third exclaimed: "Dan Andrews is at MAFS to make sure everyone is home by 8 pm."
Seriously, we almost expected Russ to crack out the old North Face jacket, tell us to put a mask on, and break out into a rendition of 'Get On The Beers' to his awaiting bride.

According to his Channel Nine bio, Russell is described as a 'quintessential Aussie larrikin' who is most happy when he's 'downing a beer and eating a steak'.
Apparently, he also once proposed to a stranger on holidays, with their marriage lasting just one year. That is exactly the sort of uncomfortable spontaneity you'd expect from a contestant willing to marry a (likely very mismatched) stranger on national television.
The madness has only just begun, so we'll be keeping our eye on Russell in case he announces any snap lockdowns during the course of the series.
Married At First Sight Australia continues Tuesday at 7.30 pm on Channel Nine.
